Dragon Age III: Inquisition Announced

Dragon Age III: Inquisition Announced

Out of nowhere, EA’s announced Dragon Age III: Inquisition, the new sequel from Bioware. Press release inside.

The Return of Dragon Age will be Bigger, Deeper and Powered by Frostbite 2

BioWare, a Label of Electronic Arts, today announced Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, the next chapter in the award-winning role-playing game franchise, is in development at BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal. Coming in late 2013, Dragon Age 3: Inquisition combines the storytelling legacy BioWare is known for, with deep RPG gameplay, all on a brand new RPG game engine underpinned by EA’s critically-acclaimed Frostbite 2 technology.

“The Dragon Age team has been working on Dragon Age 3: Inquisition for almost two years now,” said Aaryn Flynn, General Manager of BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal. “We’ve been poring over player feedback from past games and connecting directly with our fans. They haven’t held back, so we’re not either. With Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, we want to give fans what they’re asking for – a great story with choices that matter, a massive world to explore, deep customization and combat that is both tactical and visceral.”

Added Flynn, “At the same time, we know we need new technology to truly make this vision become fully realized. And we’ve been working with DICE to make Frostbite 2 the foundation for the engine that is going to power Dragon Age 3.”

The Dragon Age franchise has received over 80 awards from critics around the world, and has sold over 8 million copies to date. Created by BioWare, the property has spawned many novels, an animated film, comic books, collectibles and more since Dragon Age: Origins launched in 2009.

    I will be interested to see how this one looks. The second one was decent, had obvious flaws but still wasn’t a horrible game. with the frostbite 2 engine it should look pretty that’s for sure

  • nick

    seriously, EA, does EVERYTHING have to use FB2!
    christ, EA are giving the term milking a whole new extreme!

    @nick dude who the hell cares, no one can ever please you nick sometimes i think you just complain for the hell of it.

  • foxton

    ha ha well said Ghost, i dont think ive ever seen a positive comment from him

    @Foxton & Chost
    Unless it is Crysis, then we get an earful of how it is the greatest franchise of all time. lol. On his comment. Why shouldn’t EA use FB2 engine when it is a good engine and they have it readily available for all of their developers? The most “milked” engine in gaming is the Unreal Engine.


    Meh who cares about which engine they use or not, as long as the game is good, I’m good.
    Also have to consider the hard work it takes to make a game, if something like a engine seems to but you off a lot then maybe you should just go and try to make a game to your fitting,instead of complaining about something that isnt worth complaining about. but i doubt you’ll achieve any of that…
    Like I said in some of these past post’s, “a game is a game not like its going to affect your life in a huge way”.

    gotta love the inconsistency of people these days.
    when one thing gets milked to hell it gets ridiculed like it was the antichrist, and when others do it its eh who cares.
    i dunno about anyone else, but im fucking sick of the FB2 engine ALREADY!
    and it is only a year old!
    some games suit it, but not a freaking open world RPG!
    god help EA if they try to shoehorn ME into this!
