Bioware has confirmed the release date for Dragon Age: Inquisition. The long-awaited RPG arrive on October 7th, 2014.
Alongside the release date for Dragon Age: Inquisition, Electronic Arts has revealed a new gameplay trailer as well.
Despite the success of the original Dragon Age, the sequel to the game didn’t fare quite as well with fans. Unfortunately, this has some Dragon Age fans skeptical about the upcoming release. Though according to Mark Darrah of Bioware, there’s a nice mixture of the previous Dragon Age games and new content.
“Dragon Age 2, we decideded we want to try something, to try to do very different storytelling, something much more personal, something much more tightly constrained. No chosen one, no clear overarching threat. I don’t think it was a perfect success, but that was intentional.
A lot of the other changes that are perceived, the overall scope of the game or the perception of the combat getting a lot simpler or waves and things like that—not intended, exactly. That was supposed to be more evolutionary. I think we just overreached. We pushed too hard,” Darrah told PC Gamer.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will no doubt be heavily scrutinized by fans when the game releases later this year. Bioware has some of the most passionate fans when it comes to their role-playing games. Following the release of Mass Effect 3, they pushed the developer to make downloadable content that effectively changed the ending of the game due to a massive public uproar.
