Dragon Age 3 is " stunningly beautiful " says dev.
As fans of the Dragon Age series we are pretty glad to here some positive words on the latest game's development, so you'll understand why we have a smile on our face when hearing that one of the developers has described it as "stunningly beautiful."
That's according to BioWare's Neil Thompson who credits that game's good looks to the Frostbite 2 engine and promises that once screens arrive people will not feel let down.
"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. 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."
"We think we have something special for Dragon Age 3: Inquisition," concluded Thompson.
Sounds exciting, although we are still not sure which platforms that the game will eventually arrive on.
[quote user="Cokney Charmer"]The demo for DA2 put me off buying it, so will wait for the demo for this before deciding[/quote]Dragon Age 2 is a good game, it's just not a particularly good sequel. It suffered for me because they wanted to make it more like
Mass Effect when it didn't need to be, it needed to be more like Dragon Age.
As to Dragon Age 3 I'll be looking forward to it with a very sceptical eye.
