‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ gameplay looks at combat, choice, and consequence

dragon age inquisition gameplay pretty kind familiar
It turns out that Dragon Age: Inquisition looks an awful lot like the previous Dragon Age games, though it’s much prettier, even when shakycam-captured off of a demo screen. BioWare showed off the footage at Finland’s Digiexpo (via Polygon), and the video comes from one attendee that was okay with holding up a camera for 30 minutes. Thanks nameless Digiexpo attendee!

The clip runs through some of the story, so consider this your spoiler warning. The Inquisitor and his followers pays a visit to a town that’s been attacked, and since the town is in league with the Inquisition, you’re there to help. The gameplay highlights exploration and combat as well as a bit of the series’ trademark focus on choice and consequence. There’s not much more to say than that; check out the footage below to see for yourself, and let us know in the comments what you think.

Dragon Age: Inquisition comes to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms in 2014.
