Dragon Age: Inquisition – The Return of Races
As you may have noticed by now, Dragon Age: Inquisition, arriving in 2014 will again allow for the different playable races in the game. This means you can once again be a stocky and gruff but loveable Dwarf or a willowy, yet strong Elf and Game Informer has a new video feature all about that shiz.
Watching this video I was struck with a few things:
1. Mike Laidlaw’s beard is epic and awesome and you should all bow before it
…I guess that’s the really important thing.
However, the other thing I want to point out is that the character models they seem to be showing us look absolutely stunning and incredibly realistic. To me, Dragon Age 2 was kind of a visual nightmare on many levels, from making Alistair look like a giant baked potato, to reducing the elves to shoeless goblin-like soul harvesters (I don’t even want to talk about Zevran), and on a lesser level, the fact that Isabella couldn’t be bothered to put on a damn pair of pants. So it’s nice to see that these elves and dwarves in particular look like something I can get excited about!
The more I hear about Dragon Age: Inquisition, the more absolutely giddy I become. And then I get sad that it’s so far away. And then I remember that my patience will likely pay off in a glorious display of stunning next gen console graphics and head ‘sploding gameplay. Not to mention the inevitably complex and engaging story.
I can’t wait!
