We already know that ‘Dragon Age III: Inquisition’ will more than likely be a next generation game. As such, we can only expect it to look, as one of the developer stated – “Stunningly Beautiful”.
In an interview with OXM, Bioware’s Neil Thompson said that in the past, artist have been disappointed by the fact that their creations couldn’t look exactly as they wanted because of the limitations of Bioware’s ‘Eclipse’ engine. Things are completely different now that the next ‘Dragon Age’ game is based on the ‘Frostbite 2’ engine.
“Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 were both done using BioWare’s own Eclipse engine, and it was starting to creak a little bit when Dragon Age 2 came out,“ Thompson admitted. “Inquisition is being done on the Frostbite 2 engine and it is an astonishingly powerful engine.“
“The Dragon Age artists were always slightly disappointed at how their work was visualised in the final product with Eclipse, but with Frostbite, they’ve just done some amazing stuff.“
“There was a pre-production period where almost on a weekly basis I’d be sitting in the environment reviews and being blown away by what was coming out – it looks stunningly beautiful. So I think when we do start releasing screenshots, people won’t be disappointed.“
That said, we can only expect great things from it. ‘Dragon Age III: Inquisition’ is rumored to be targeting a 2014 release. The question now remains: will it only be available on the next generation of consoles + PC, or will it hit all major platforms? And what about the Wii U?
