Dragon Age - Preview @ 1Up
1Up has teamed up with Dragon Age project director Scott Greig for an in-depth preview of Dragon Age which 1Up calls the "spiritual successor" to Baldur's Gate. Also included in the preview are a few words from Bioware's founders on roleplaying's past, present, and future.
As in any BioWare game, characters--and moral choices--tower over everything, though Greig says it isn't as simple as light-side points and dark-side points, open palm and closed fist. "Yes, you're the hero, or the antihero, depending on how you play, but it's going to be a lot more organic. You basically have to save the world, but what the world is like when you're done--that's totally up to you and the choices you make throughout the game. You're literally going to decide the fate of nations, who's becoming king, what nations are actually around after...what races are around. You're going to have to make some hard choices in the game, but we want all the choices to be clear. The player's gonna know if he does this, there's a really horrific consequence. Decisions are gonna be hard...and sort of shocking."
