The lights are on
The third installment of the Dragon Age franchise casts players as the head of the Inquisition, a recently resurrected organization charged with rooting out corruption and evil in the land of Thedas. As the game begins, the Inquisition has plenty to investigate. War, scheming, and political strife have left the major power groups in the Dragon Age universe unable to operate effectively, which is a problem when a hole opens in the sky and demons begin pouring out. Players must fight back against the demonic threat while exploring a vast world and consolidating power for the growing Inquisition. Large and varied environments, customizable armor, and the return of multiple player races are just a few of the ways BioWare is addressing feedback from previous titles in order to shape a new future for the franchise.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The E3 trailer provided more questions than answers for fans, and we have a whole month of exclusive features lined up covering everything from combat to character creation. To see what's in store, watch the coverage trailer below.

I so hope this is good. I loved Origins but there where things I did not like because Mass Effect had it and not Dragon Age. Then I liked 2 but it felt small and repetitive and the combat was fighting itself.
This is awesome. Can't wait to get my copy in the mail. Yea, I'm old school.
After Dragon Age2 and MassEffect2&3 this game has to impress the hell out of me until I will pay for this
Wait WHAT?! I didn't realize it was coming to PS3! I'm going to wait and see how it looks on it before deciding to save for PS4 to play this or just purchase it for current-gen.
Oh wow , love this cover and love the game (origins rocks while DA2 was ... meh )
Well I'm intrigued by the game and how it sounds that perhaps Bioware has recogonized it's mistakes, this game won't be a day one buy for me. DA2 was solid but disappointing. I didn't mind the story so much, it was fine and the companions as well but the gameplay was repetitive and the environments were meh and uninspiring. So I'll wait for the reviews before I decide on getting this game. If it doesn't do so hot then I'll rent it just for the sake of knowing what happens story wise.
Oh Em F Gee, I can't wait to see how many endings we get! And what colors will they be?! OH THE EXCITEMENT!
That looks great. Before- I was mildly enthusiastic. Now- I'm extremely excited.
That is a pretty sweet cover.
last chance bioware - don't screw it up
THIS WILL BE EPIC!
Im not really hopeful, i was really excited when the da 2 cover was announced, but that and ME were both over hyped pieces of garbage
Horses, huh? I wonder if that means that Bioware will be breaking their tabletop scheme of doing things this time around (which I'm all aboard for).
There's nowhere to go but up after Dragon Age 2.
