New Dragon Age Inquisition screens released; game playable from beginning to end

It’s been awhile since we last heard about Dragon Age: Inquisition, the next epic RPG from Bioware.  That all changed today with a new blog post, updating fans on where development stands, and offering new looks at some of the game’s varied characters and locales.  Read on for all the details.

The update appeared over on the official Bioware blog.  Mark Darrah, executive producer of the Dragon Age franchise, wrote the piece, in which he announced that his team had just finished putting together a “holiday build” of Inquisition.  Holiday builds are something of a tradition at Bioware, enabling employees to play unfinished games and provide feedback over the long holiday break.  This particular holiday break, they will be bringing home a build of Inquisition which is playable from beginning to end, a major milestone in any game’s development.  While far from complete, the game is beginning to take shape, with music and voice over tracks going in, and all gameplay systems working together.

In addition to the development update, Mark also shared a number of new images from the game.  While devoid of major spoilers, the images do confirm the presence of Qunari, trees, dungeons, furniture, clothing, and dead things in Dragon Age: Inquisition.  Sorry if I ruined the surprise for some of you.  Check out the images below.

Preeeeeetty.  While no official release date has been announced, you can probably bet on Dragon Age coming out by this time next year.  Until then, we’ll just have to stare into that Qunari’s piercing eyes, and wonder if he will be romancable…

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
