First Dragon Age screen & info

Game News - posted by Vault Dweller on Fri 3 November 2006, 02:23:18

Tags: BioWare; Dragon Age: Origins

1UP has announced that the first issue of Games For Windows (formerly known as Computer Gaming World) will be loaded with Dragon Age info. Here is a teaser:

- The story is dark-much darker than the usual BioWare fare-and influenced by "realistic" modern fantasy like George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones.

- The game uses an evolved "tactical real-time combat" style of Baldur's Gate, only in 3D-you queue up orders for multiple party members, pause the game when you need to think, and your party members will be able to execute coordinated attacks.

- Large-scale creature combat will have your characters doing stuff like ducking between legs and jumping on backs of monsters (dare we say dragons?).

- Even though Dragon Age isn't a D&D game, per se, BioWare is sticking close to those roots with the class and rules systems.

- The game uses a "modified" version of the Mass Effect conversation system we're all so keen on.

- Depending on the type of character you choose, the game offers multiple different "origin stories"-meaning the first few hours of the game will be totally different depending on which character archetype you choose.

- The game's actually coming out in late 2007 or early 2008.
The early screens looked much better. The Mass Effect dumb system in DA is the biggest disappointment of the year.

Thanks, DemonKing
