Dragon Age 3: Inquistion announced. We expect thar be fiery lizards in our PS3s’ future

BioWare has just confirmed Dragon Age 3: Inquisition is in development, with the headline news being the game’s engine is based on the Frostbite 2.0 tech DICE developed for Battlefield 3.

The developer teased the first details of EA’s fantasy RPG on Dragon Age 2′s official blog. Here are the highlights in handy quote and bullet point form straight from the keyboard-typing digits of Dragon 3′s executive producer Mark Darrah…

“I am pleased to confirm that we are, in fact, working on the next Dragon Age game. Not a big surprise to most of you, I know. We have been working on it in some way for about two years now with the bulk of our efforts ramping up about 18 months ago.”

  • “The next game will be called Dragon Age III: Inquisition.”
  • “We won´t be talking about the story of the game today. Though you can make some guesses from the title.”
  • “This game is being made by a lot of the same team that has been working on Dragon Age since Dragon Age: Origins. It´s composed of both experienced BioWare veterans and talented new developers.”
  • “We are working on a new engine which we believe will allow us to deliver a more expansive world, better visuals, more reactivity to player choices, and more customization. At PAX East we talked about armour and followers… Yeah, that kind of customisation. We´ve started with Frostbite 2 from DICE as a foundation to accomplish this.”

Here's a shot of Dragon Age 2, with what appears to be a fantasy rhino... eh, thingie

We awarded Dragon Age 2 a big fat eight, so we’re mightily excited about the prospect of slaughtering more leathery lizards in an ace fantasy RPG. Here’s some previous Dragon’s Age 3 info that supposedly leaked out a while back.
