The lights are on
Bioware took the stage today during Electronic Arts’ E3 2013 press conference to offer the “first new look at the next generation of RPGs”. Dragon Age Inquisition will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in fall 2014.
A trailer begins with a female narrator (possibly Flemeth) warning of incoming fires that will rain from the heavens. Lightning strikes a battlefield as a horned Qunari warrior looks on. Catapaults fire their flaming loads at a castle. The sky rips open and meteors plummet to the earth from the glowing green nether. A huge dragon perches on a mountain and breaths fire towards the screen. Morrigan (of Dragon Age: Origins fame) appears on the screen and shares a vague prophecy of coming dark days.
Bioware promises popular characters from the previous entries will return for this third chapter.

Going back to the original Dragon Age story line makes me moist I must say.
I wonder if your decisions from the last two games will carry over?
Hopefully this releases for PC as well. I loved playing DAO on the PC more than I did on the consoles.
I am so angry about this delay. Can't even be delayed to March but Fall a full year. GOD, I am just so sad.
I loved DA:O, but wasn't a big fan of DAII, but I played it. I can't wait to see what this one rolls out.
The narrator is Claudia Black not possibly Flemeth and it even shows Morrigan speaking at the end so come on GI. Anyways, Varric and Morrigan looks way different! How long does this take after DA2?
I can't wait and this will be a good reason for my purchase of a next gen console.
Great cameos for Varric and Morrigan. Hopefully the will both be companions in DA3. I rather did enjoy Varric in DA2 even though I wasn't big for the game. Hopefully we see plenty more of familiar faces.
I've never played the series. sounds neat though.
That Darkspawn (I assume it is a Darkspawn anyway) back seems to be very highly rendered. Wow.
Yes! Hopefully BioWare learns from recent mistakes. I do hope this game is epic!
Looks cool, really hoping this turns that franchise around.
No surprises here.
I'm so excited Morgan is coming back. I always wondered with her with alternate endings and such.
