BioWare Announces Dragon Age Inquisition For October 7th 79

An anonymous reader writes "Today BioWare announced a new game in its popular Dragon Age RPG series titled Inquisition. The game will follow the story of an Inquisitor trying to rally the world against the magic-laden forces spewing from rifts opening to another place. The game's creative director, Mike Laidlaw, says players will be able to watch the world descend into chaos, and then deal with the burdens of power as they rally forces in opposition. BioWare is also taking the opportunity to fix all of the things they broke in Dragon Age 2: 'Top-down tactical view is back. Playable races are back. The game seems to have more of an emphasis on challenge thanks to non-regenerative health.' The game will launch on October 7th for the PC, PS3/4, and Xbox 360/One."

    To speak in the words of the venerable Michael Scott, "Fool me once, strike one, but fool me twice... strike three." What Bioware has proven over and over again is that they haven't been able to make any proper decisions involving their games since they released the "are you ready for the new shit?" trailer to promote DA1. Again and again they have alienated their core player base in order to appeal to a wider market... and failed. DA2 was a pile of shit, the ME3 ending an abortion that turned everything they said over the course of the development of the entire ME series into a lie ("the ending won't simply be a button you push in the last five minutes of the game!"), and the departure of the Doctors the final nail in the coffin. I'm not even going to pirate this. Before ME2, the last game worth my time Bioware produced came out in 2003. It's over, we're never going to get another Baldur's Gate 2, at least not from Bioware.

    Though I'm hopeful about Pillars of Eternity.
