Dragon Age Preview on computerandvideogames.com

There's a preview of Bioware's game Dragon Age which is in development right now [seems not to be vapourware after all] at computerandvideogames.com
Hence Dragon Age's entirely new world of Ferelden, custom-written to emphasise the bleakness of existence. In the world of Dragon Age, magic is dangerous and weird, magic users feared, and the consequences of great spells still being felt by a downtrodden and broken populace. Gone are the D&D cliches: the flick-of-a-wrist fireball, the saving throw. In comes inter-species tension, religious hatred, and good old fashioned betrayal.
Even though it doesn't have "enslaving nations with necromancy" listed as one of its features, the world sounds pretty interesting, and maybe Bioware manage to pull it off.
Consider the elves: tall, slender, smarter, almost idealised humans in most fantasy. In Dragon Age, they're nothing of the sort: in Dragon Age they're terrorists or freedom fighters, depending on who you talk to.
Sounds suspiciously similar to The Witcher in some aspects, though.
Just follow the link below to read the full article.
Thanks for the news to Suicidal.
