The lights are on
BioWare listens to their fans. When we visited the studio for the latest cover story, the development team made it clear that a lot of their audience enjoyed the more tactical approach to combat from Dragon Age: Origins. While BioWare wouldn't confirm the return of the tactical view from that game, creative director Mike Laidlaw and executive produce Mark Darrah are pushing for more strategic encounters in Inqusition. We spoke with Laidlaw and Darrah about their vision for the next iteration of combat in the series, and senior gameplay designer Josh Stiksma showed off some pre-alpha footage.

MAN....soooo many good RPGs coming out in the next year or two.
I'm gonna be so poor. >.<...good problem to have though I suppose.
I really like the look and feel of the combat I've seen so far. I think one of the biggest things with DA:2 was the story was such a letdown and the world was largely unexplored. It seems Bioware is rectifying all these mistakes with Inquisition, I can't wait to play this on PS4.
Every bit of news about it makes me want this game more and more. That's a promising sign surely.
The responsive controls of DA2 with the tactical approach of Origins! this combat will be phenomenal!
Looks like a mix of origins and 2, it's a compromise I suppose.
