Dragon Age: Inquisition - Preview @ TheGameHeadz

TheGameHeadz has posted a new preview of Dragon Age: Inquisition asking,"What’s so Unique About the Long Questioning?"

An inquisition is defined as “a judicial or official inquiry or examination usually before a jury.” In the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition, the player's character, appropriately deemed the Inquisitor, will be conducting investigations on behalf of the organization. The objective is to discover who is responsible for the event that ripped several holes in the sky that lead to the Fade, letting in demons and other unsavory creatures. The gameplay appears much larger in scale than the previous two games, showing that BioWare is employing their usual series magic to prevent Dragon Age from growing stagnant.

It's difficult to keep RPG series fresh while maintaining fan approval, just ask Square Enix. Each new Final Fantasy game garners new and vehement criticism from fans for the changes they make to the core gameplay. Final Fantasy XII was a particular subject of disapproval thanks to Square Enix throwing out the random encounter mechanic. Fortunately for Dragon Age fans, BioWare has a long history with RPG series. The Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Mass Effect series all improved under BioWare's capable development team, and I expect no less from Dragon Age. The changes announced for Dragon Age: Inquisition take the series in a new direction without forgetting its roots.
