Qunari will be playable race in Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare reveals new playable race for upcoming role-playing game, says the title is “largest game we have ever made”; tactical mode returning for consoles and PC.

 

The Qunari will be a playable race in Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare announced today during a PAX Prime presentation in Seattle, Washington.


The original Dragon Age: Origins allowed players to create a character from a range of races. Its sequel, Dragon Age II, forced players into the role of a human named Hawke.

Both male and female Qunari options will be available to players, BioWare said. The developer confirmed earlier this month that multiple playable races would be featured the upcoming game.

Also during the panel, executive producer Mark Darrah said Dragon Age: Inquisition represents the “largest game we have ever made.”

Also during the panel, BioWare revealed players will be able to command their party through a top-down perspective on consoles and PC via “Tactical” mode, which was featured in the original Dragon Age. Gamers can switch between this view and third-person over-the-shoulder whenever they want.

Dragon Age: Inquisition runs on the Frostbite 3 engine, the technology also behind upcoming games Battlefield 4 and Need for Speed: Rivals.

The role-playing game was recently delayed one year. It is now due out in fall 2014 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Electronic Arts recently explained that its decision to drop the “III” from the game’s title was for both marketing and story purposes.

Cutting naval multiplayer from ACIV was "heartbreaking" says creative director

Ashraf Ismail says “I lose a lot of sleep over that one” regarding cutting multiplayer mode from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag; future-set Assassin’s Creed game unlikely.

 

Cutting the naval multiplayer mode from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was “heartbreaking,” creative director Ashraf Ismail said today during a PAX Prime panel.


“I lost a lot of sleep over that one,” Ismail said.

He explained that Ubisoft created multiple prototypes for the game mode that were “awesome,” and the scope was “really huge.”

“It really broke my heart the day we decided to cut it from the game,” Ismail recalled.

Though there won’t be naval multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Ismail suggested a similar game mode could be featured in an upcoming game “if [Black Flag] does really well.”

During a question and answer session, Ismail was asked about the potential for a future-set Assassin’s Creed game. He responded by saying he would be “shocked” if the series jumped into the future.

Explaining the decision to look back instead of forward, Ismail said Ubisoft’s mantra for the series is “history is our playground.”

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag launches October 29 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. The Xbox One and PS4 versions will be launch titles for those platforms, while the PC version will be released sometime after the current-generation iterations.
