BioWare Attempts A Comeback With Dragon Age: Inquisition

After Mass Effect tension, BioWare attempts to redeem itself with the newest installment in its famous RPG, Dragon Age: Inquisition.

After the disappointment following the ending of Mass Effect 3, it's no surprise that fans' faith in BioWare is waning.

However, with the release of the brand new Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer, players' excitement can be observed across multiple social media platforms.

With hype for the latest title in the Dragon Age series skyrocketing, it's safe to say that the release trailer for the game has done its job. Featuring a dramatic, new plotline; changes to dragon combat; beautiful, aesthetic backgrounds; and some insane new monsters called the "Breach."

Perhaps the most anticipated section of the trailer is the release date--October 7.

Dragon Combat

According to an interview with IGN, dragon combat was a significant focus in the development of the game. Some dragons will have different stats, such as "elements, armor types, and properties." This will require players to approach skirmishes with these elegant beasts differently each time, especially now that where you hit the creatures will actually matter. 


About The Story

In Dragon Age: Inquisition, you'll be playing as the inquisitor himself, the sole survivor of a catastrophic explosion that killed tens of thousands.  As the only hope to restore order to Thedas, you must close the rift that the explosion created. A rift that, consequently, is spewing unknown creatures into the Dragon Age world. 


Will You Forgive BioWare?

With many fans still in an uproar over Mass Effect 3, there have been comments left and right swearing off an allegiance to BioWare. On the other hand, with obvious excitement over the Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer on the rise, it seems like BioWare has won back a majority of its fans. 

Will you be giving the new Dragon Age a chance? Or will the Mass Effect backlash prevent you from pre-ordering the fantasy RPG?

    I've always blamed more of the Mass Effect backlash on entitled gamers as opposed to the hard-working developers (who, by the way, returned to work during what was supposed to be a well-earned vacation, and produced a piece of DLC entirely for free).

    The only comeback BioWare needs to make, in my eyes, is within the Dragon Age franchise, because DAII wasn't everything it could've been.
