BioWare announces Dragon Age 3, powered by Frostbite 2

Dragon Age 3: Inquisition to release late 2013

BioWare has officially announced Dragon Age 3: Inquisition for release in late 2013.


The third entry in the eight million unit selling RPG series has been in development at BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal for the past two years.

According to the official announcement, the game will combine "the storytelling legacy BioWare is known for, with deep RPG gameplay, all on a brand new RPG game engine underpinned by EA's critically-acclaimed Frostbite 2 technology".

BioWare Edmonton general manager Aaryn Flynn said: "We've been poring over player feedback from past games and connecting directly with our fans. They haven't held back, so we're not either.

"With Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, we want to give fans what they're asking for - a great story with choices that matter, a massive world to explore, deep customization and combat that is both tactical and visceral.

"At the same time, we know we need new technology to truly make this vision become fully realized. And we've been working with DICE to make Frostbite 2 the foundation for the engine that is going to power Dragon Age 3."

Dragon Age 3 will cast players as an inquisitor, feature online co-op and be set in the empire of Orlais, if survey data revealed on the BioWare social forums last month is to be believed.
