The lights are on
The latest narrated walkthrough trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition takes a look at the game's combat.
In the video, which you can see below, you will learn about Inquisition's pause-and-play tactical camera. The mechanic appeared in Dragon Age: Origins, but was dropped for Dragon Age 2 in order to focus more on action gameplay. For Inquisition, the mechanic returns and is getting expanded.

Glad to see that BioWare listened to the fans and learned from Dragon Age 2's missteps.
Inquisition is looking better and better with every new reveal.
I'm glad this feature is back for Inquisition.
The real-time combat looks a lot more developed than it was in DA2. Looking forward to this.
To be honest, the gameplay looks intense and as complex as you want it to be - that's really exciting for me.
Granted there is time for polish but as of now there are some visual discrepancies from what we've seen before
I'm quite grateful tactical is back but it doesn't alleviate my worry either. Action and Tactical can not coexist. It defeats the point. If a battle needs to be fought with Tactical then theres no way action can prevail. If you can just action your way through every battle, then tactical becomes utterly pointless (why plan out a sweet battle when you can just faceroll it?).
My great hope is that highest difficulty will make action useless and tactical necessary. It's the only way I can see this working out.
on consoles we never had the tactical camera to begin with. It was just a pause and dart camera, we were never able to zoom out, or move everyone until DA2, and even then it wasn't needed unless you played on nightmare maybe. But this DA is looking, and shaping up to be epic! I am still so happy they decided to actually make magic look like magic. The animations and cinema tics for the combat look so great compared to the other two.
