Dragon Age: Inquisition to lob demons from the sky beginning October 7

Can you make out any familiar Dragon Age party members here? I cannot, alas.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is aptly named. It feels like the result of an internal investigation at BioWare: into how Dragon Age II’s streamlining squad managed to cut quite so close to the bone; into why the team abandoned the cleverly-scripted encounter design that had served them so well since Baldur’s Gate; into where their mojo went.

The appearance of a firm, final release date suggests they’ve found satisfactory answers to all of those questions - as does this all-too-short trailer.

Here, BioWare pair obligatory player character amnesia with something much more interesting - survivor’s guilt. 

Why are you the only survivor of a cataclysmic event that killed thousands? Did you have something to do with it? Probably - like a stat-rolled Poirot, player character has been at the centre of every disaster in every RPG since Ultima. Who trusts that guy?

Anyway, yup: it’s lovely to have something solid to post about this here sequel - the delivery of a hopeful promise our Steve liked the sound of in his Dragon Age: Inquisition preview.

So what are we hoping for here? A reintroduction of the tactical combat that deepened Origins, and a new sort of semi-open world that widens Dragon Age like never before?

"Pre-order now..."

No fucking way.

I mean, I'm excited about it, but I'm not mental.

Bioware, I'd so like to believe again. ME3 was solid, save for that travesty of an ending... DA2 was an absolute mess, though. Origins was amazing and had so much depth... and then its sequel was a huge step backward.

Less DA2, more DA:O please.
