Dragon Age: Inquisition Is Even More Beautiful In Ultra-High Resolution Screenshots

by Mike Futter on Dec 01, 2014 at 04:51 AM

Dragon Age: Inquisition is quite a looker, showing off EA’s Frostbite 3 engine in a way we haven’t before seen. You can get impressive screenshots through the PlayStation 4 (and better via PC), but you can push your photographic skills even further.

Website DeadEndThrills is host to gorgeous shots from a number of video games. Dragon Age: Inquisition images began emerging a few days after the game’s release, with entries that include beautiful vistas, action-packed combat, and gruesome monsters.

Many of the shots were taken using a technique called “hotsampling.” Using this method, players push the game’s resolution extremely high, take the screenshot before their video cards crash out, and quickly return to more manageable settings.

As you can see from the images above (click them to enlarge), the results are astounding. You can see many more at DeadEndThrills, along with samples from a number of other titles, including The Evil Within, Alien: Isolation, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.
