Dragon Age: Inquisition - Preview Roundup #3
As I predicted yesterday here is round three of previews. They just keep popping up.
There’s a big glowing hole in the sky and terribly evil things keep falling out of it. Demons, ghosts, rude lyrics, all manner of insane badness is tumbling out of an inter-dimensional sky-fanny and it’s up to you, the leader of the Inquisition, to find out why it’s happening and put a stop to it. This is Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare’s second shot at giving Dragon Age: Origins the sequel it deserves, one that draws on both the freshly Skyrim and Witcher-soaked influences of a recently rejuvenated fantasy RPG genre, as well as building on its own tactically minded combat roots. This is a next-gen Dragon Age that’s grown up, learned its lessons and added a horse.
During a panel held yesterday at PAX Prime, Dragon Age: Inquisition Lead Designer Mike Laidlaw dropped a very interesting statement on how the game will perform on different platforms, caught on film by Youtube user yaypony.
While the fact that the Xbox 360 version won’t look as good as the PC version or the next generation console versions was to be expected, it’s interesting to see it defined inferior to the PS3 version as well.
There’s the slight possibility that the addition of “or the PS3″ at the end of the sentence meant to bunch it with the Xbox 360, meaning that both Xbox 360 and PS3 will look inferior to PC and the next generation consoles, but considering the wording and the fact that Laidlaw continues to talk in singular form makes it quite unlikely.
And for last we have EuroGamer with it's third one of the week.
BioWare has said the PC and next-generation version - or the gen four version, as EA calls it - of upcoming fantasy role-playing game Dragon Age: Inquisition will benefit from a more immersive world.
BioWare Edmonton producer Cameron Lee told Eurogamer that the graphical difference between DA:I on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version, will be "huge".
"On gen four you'll see far better graphics and, more importantly, a much more immersive world," Lee said.
"It's a lot richer, and there's more depth to it. We can put more things on screen. There are more NPCs. There is more life to the world.
"That, while a subtle thing, really does over time build up into quite a strong connection to the game compared to the other gen three platforms."
