Dragon Age III to be huge as details trickle out

The first proper details of Dragon Age III: Inquisition have trickled out thanks to the Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expo, revealing a few details about BioWare's upcoming role-playing sequel. The panel at the expo have revealed that you will play as a human in Dragon Age III, and there will be character backgrounds (not available to play) that will apparently have a significant impact on the story.

Also, it was revealed that the game will be huge, with one level in Dragon Age III being as large as all of the levels in Dragon Age II. Creative director Mike Laidlaw said that customization will be bigger than in Dragon Age: Origins, with player choices from previous games being retained in this new game.

Some concept art for the game was also unveiled, so you can check that out below and above. Dragon Age III is slated for a late 2013 release, so it'll be well in to development by now.

I don't like "Story" RPG's, just a personal preference as if I want to watch a good per-determined story I'll just watch a movie. I like "open world" games where my experience playing through the game will be different from a friend playing the same game. That said I enjoyed DAO, I really liked how you could make your character and it tailored a different Origin Story that had effects later in the game. My only real issue with DAO is it made no sense to me that there was no multiplayer since it was already divided into little zones and you had to "gather your party" before you could move to the next zone. DAII with it's predetermined main character lost me, I thought it was a huge step back and so I didn't pick it up on launch and when the reviews came in I ditched the idea of getting it at all. If DAIII goes back toward the DAO style I'd definitely consider picking it up but if it's more like II you can count me out.

And the third screen is from an area where you get swarmed by 50 little dragonling paratroopers while the big one literally breathes on your neck.

Ok, Bioware. Do redeem yourselves!

Err... didn't mean to reply to the comment, but to post a new one. Sorries.

Game can be as 'huge' as you want, if it has the sucky story and character development of number 2 will still suck. Bioware really peaked with this franchise on the first one.

Peaking with mediocrity is pretty sad.

Each to their own, but from a gamer and critic point of view DAO is generally considered to be quite good and far from the mediocrity taht was DAO2.
