Bioware is screwed with those two gone. EA will replace them with their own people and we can forget about seeing Bioware develop the games they did previously. IMO at least.

Re: Dragon Age III: Inquisition

Is there any reason why trustbusting could or should be used on EA?

BioWare's DA developers hosted a panel at the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo today titled "Dragon Age: A Look Ahead." It should be online for viewing "soonish," for anyone curious.

On Twitter, DA Creative Director Mike Laidlaw confirmed that the playable character in DAIII will be human only again, but promised "varied, detailed backgrounds."

He's also been sharing a few other thoughts from the panel:

Re: Dragon Age III: Inquisition

Some concept art has gone up on the bioware blog. Nothing specific, but it gives a nice impression of the type of environments they're looking to depict. I think the overgrown ruins look especially nice an refreshing. Not sure if any of this looks like how I envisioned Orlais though. Indeed if I had to guess based on that first one I'd say I was looking at Nevarra. Or Antiva perhaps?

Well, Orlais is a pretty huge place if I'm reading the map correctly. There's room there for plenty of different types of environments.

^Oh I know. It was more of a stylistic impression than anything rational.

Re: Dragon Age III: Inquisition

Producer Cameron Lee shared some details via Twitter during the panel yesterday.
  • Cinematic Designer John Perry said that he's had a longer pre-production on DA3 than any other BioWare title he's worked on
  • Perry: one level in DA3 is as big as all of DA2's levels
  • Regarding the castle from the concept art link above, Laidlaw said: "you *cough*... may or may not take control of it"
  • Laidlaw: customization is going to be bigger than DAO (followers, etc.)
  • Laidlaw: "it feels wrong to not have a 'little' Flemeth in your game *grin*"
  • David Gaider: Playable character backgrounds "will have significant impact on the story," despite not being playable
  • Regarding DA2 companions: you may see what happened to some
