Report: Leaked Survey Reveals Plot Of Dragon Age 3
Heads up everyone. Despite the increasingly uncertain fate of BioWare at the hands of wounded beast EA, it looks like Dragon Age 3 is moving forward. Fans have leaked documents on the BioWare social forums purporting to be a survey from the upcoming, but still unannounced sequel to BioWare’s RPG series.
Neogaf has posted a comprehensive look at the documents, including a helpful summary. Among other tidbits is this description of the plot:
A portal between the worlds unleashes hords of demons in the land, civil wars rip apart nations and the corruption is limitless. Someone is behind the shadows, drawing the threads which destroy the world. Time has come for the Inquisition.
Take the Inquisitor’s cloak and lead the only force able of bringing light into the darkness. Choose the direct method and gather your armies, send spies into the shadows or engage in a political war, make friends and use your connections indirectly: it is up to you how you lead the inquisition. But you’ll have to take lead of it from the beginning. Make your player a rogue, warrior or mage and set up your crew from up to ten (!) complex companions to lead them against those who attack you by systematically spying on, revealing and destroying them.
The survey asks players to rate a variety of concept art, as well as possible titles, including Dragon Age 3: The Breach, Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, and Dragon Age 3: Apocrypha. Strangely, just plain ol’ Dragon Age 3 isn’t among the titles listed in the leaked documents, even though it would make sense considering the naming convention used in the previous games. Dragon Age: Endings would make more sense.
Anyway, this may or may not be legit. We’ll be keeping an eye out. In the meantime, will you play? I LOVED Dragon Age 2, but I admit that had I had more time to play instead of cramming through it to meet my deadline, I would have been far far more critical of the recycled enemies and dungeons and sub par combat. I stand by my assessment of the story, however, which was brilliant. I hope they take similar risks with part 3.
