Dragon Age II Designer: We're Going To Fix Things For DAIII
Although we still liked Dragon Age II, we recognize that it had a few problems.
And just like any good studio, it's BioWare's aim to fix all those issues before providing fans with the next installment. In a new post in the official BioWare forums, DAII lead designer Mike Laidlaw addressed some common complaints regarding the recent entry. He cited "level re-use, the implementation of wave combat, concerns about the narrative and significance of choice" and in response said:
"I'm not only aware of the concerns, but I agree that there are aspects of DA II that not only can but must be improved in future installments. And that is precisely our intent."
He also tossed up a few pieces of original artwork for the new Dragon Age and added:
"I stumbled across a few images I thought I might share with you folks. After all, there's been a lot of requests to explore areas outside of Kirkwall, and I agree that seeing some more of the Free Marches would be cool."
Yes, please do whatever you can to keep Dragon Age III from feeling more like "RPG-lite." Your fans are hardcore, damnit. You know that.
