    Dragon Age III: Inquisition Announced

    NO ONE expects the Dragon Age Inquisition! (Totally stole that from an awesome person.) Okay, that’s not true; we all knew that Dragon Age III was in the works, but it’s nice to see some actual confirmation that the game is indeed in the production pipeline.

    As written from BioWare’s Mark Darrah’s blog, Dragon Age III will be coming, and it will be called Dragon Age III: Inquisition. Expect plenty of Monty Python jokes, folks.

    However, they haven’t offered us much else than the name and the expected launch window of late 2013. Nothing on story, no screenshots, no drunken promises that Dragon Age II haters will be appeased. The one potentially juicy tidbit Mark did mention is as follows:

    We are working on a new engine which we believe will allow us to deliver a more expansive world, better visuals, more reactivity to player choices, and more customization. At PAX East, we talked about armour and followers… Yeah, that kind of customisation. We’ve started with Frostbite 2 from DICE as a foundation to accomplish this.

    They’re using the same engine from Battlefield 3? FASCINATING! (And I’m not being sarcastic, I swear.)

    Mark has also said that the same team who has worked on the Dragon Age series since the beginning continues to focus on this sequel. They’ve been working on it for two years thus far, and since they have more than a year before launch, we shouldn’t see any “rushed” accusations as we saw from DAII. “Shouldn’t” being the operative word.

    I know we don’t have much to go on, but are you pumped for DAIII? This is definitely inspiring me to finish DAO!

This is the best news I've heard in the last three months! :) Can't wait to get the game! If the Witcher 3 is announced, too, I'll be totally happy :)

@SarahJLA together for a time. Does Dragon Age II give reasons why we didn't stay together? Just curious.

@TheMcNabbist Then you get the "happy" ending (and Alistair mentions you in DA2)

@SarahJLA That's what I'm doing next, since I can't handle Elder Scrolls for right now.

@TheMcNabbist But I really love the characters and the story. Playing a mage especially is really fun ('though my favourite is always rogue)

@TheMcNabbist I hope you like it. It's different from DAO - you only play one race and your character is voiced. Combat is easier.

@TheMcNabbist If you try the ending where you make Alistair King/yourself Queen and then you go with Morrigan's offer

@TheMcNabbist You need to play Dragon Age Awakening. But when I had the Warden ending we stayed together.

@SarahJLA I've added it to my cart on Amazon.

@SarahJLA So...I have a question. I played the other ending where both Alistair and I lived (but Anora still queen). It said we stayed...
