Dragon Age: Inquisition To Bring Back Multiple PC Races, And Mounts.
Dragon Age: Inquistion was featured in this month's Game Informer, and the news that comes from those hallowed, glossy pages made me weep with joy. Allow me to summarise some of the key points for you, and I ask that you join me in rejoicing.
Player races are back.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen. Despite maintaining a staunch official policy of opposition to this idea on the forums, it seems that multiple PC races have returned in DA:I. I've never been so happy to be taken in by a smokescreen.
Confirmed so far are elves, humans and dwarves, and there's a little speculation that we might get to play a Qunari.
My screech of joy would echo across the world, if such was the case. As it is, there was a fair amount of bouncing.
A return of tactical combat.
If you were miffed by the 'awesome button' hyping of DA2 and its tendency to drop dwarven carta paratroopers from the sky, you should be pretty happy right now. DA:I is returning to the Origins roots, striking a balance between fluidity and strategy.
No longer are we forced to trudge aimlessly on foot through predefined paths. Inquisition is open world, and it's been confirmed that we will have mounts...though what those mounts are, exactly, is still foggy. Please be Griffons please be Griffons please be Griffons-
The story is not linear
Again, something that should make those critical of DA2 weep with joy. Inquistion lets players essentially do what they want. How you do things will alter the story.
I have tears in my eyes as I write this. I'm actually choked up.
We will visit multiple lands
Everyone latched on to Orlais, but judging by what's been said we might get to explore a lot more of Thedas than we originally thought. I'd love to return to Fereldan and see how it's recovering from the Blight, ten years later. Maybe even head back to Kirkwall and visit the freshly steaming remains of the Chantry. Who knows...Antiva might even get a look in, or Par Vollen. Or even the Tevinter Imperium. The sky isn't even the limit, since it's cracking open.
