Explore Thedas in BioWare’s New Dragon Age: Inquisition Video

Pause and play tactical strategy or hack and slash? After the first two games, it’s tough to say what we’ll be getting with Dragon Age: Inquisition. One thing is for sure, though, Bioware’s next RPG will be easy on the eyes.

In the latest trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition, “Discover the Dragon Age” BioWare shows off its new living, open world of Thedas.

“Each area in the video has its own realistic ecosystem with predators, prey, factions, and opportunities to expand your Inquisition,” the devs state in a new post on the BioWare blog. “The world’s population is based on an emergent system that adjusts what you’ll encounter based on how your actions tip the balance in the area. You’ll see towns attacked by bandits, deer fleeing from wolves, giant’s feeding on bears, and countless other scenarios.”

It’s all being made using DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine, and even in its current pre-alpha state, I’m impressed. The textures and weather effects, in particular, look fantastic. See for yourself below:

I’ve been discussing this game with my friends, and none of us know what to say. What we’ve seen looks good, but each of us is extremely hesitant because BioWare burned us twice on things looking and sounding good in previews.

I cannot stress how little faith I have in Bioware as a developer at this point. There is literally nothing they can do to make be buy another title because even if one is good, we can’t trust them to follow it up. Sorry guys, I ain’t mad anymore, I just refuse to be hurt again.
