‘DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION’ bringing back CHARACTER RACES. G’damn right.

Dragon Age - Inquisition.


Dragon Age: Let’s Try This A Third Time is bringing back a much missed component for its third entry. Motherfucking character creation! Hell yes! How the Hell can I build my totem in the toilet out of love, blood, and muck to my character, when I can’t even design my character? Are we playing roles or what?

Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare’s upcoming fantasy role-playing game, will let players choose their race, creative director Mike Laidlaw told Game Informer.

The first game in the series, Dragon Age: Origins, allowed players to select among races like humans, dwarves and elves, each of which had their own sub-classes, lore and origin stories. Race choice was absent in the series’ second installment, Dragon Age 2, but will return in Dragon Age: Inquisition, based in part on player feedback.

“Races are awesome,” Laidlaw said. “I think they’re fantastic. So bringing it back was 100 percent based on fan feedback. Certainly some internal desire as well.”

Adding races back into the series is an expensive development proposition, given that BioWare needs to create items and equipment for each, but it’s “money well spent,” he said.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC at a date yet to be announced.
