Now that Dragon Age: Inquisition has been finally given an official release date, fans can expect that Bioware will reveal new details about the game from now until the time it launches later this fall. Taking time to clarify more information regarding what players can expect from the title’s character creation system, Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw revealed on April 23 that fans won’t be to adjust their characters individual body type.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will offer gamers numerous choices in their character’s appearance ranging from the options to select the race, class and gender of the game’s protagonist. However, while fans will have standard creation options for head features, Inquisition won’t include alternate body types. Instead, Laidlaw confirmed that each race will only have one default body model. So each character’s body features will be decided solely upon the player’s choice of human, elf, dwarf, or qunari.
Additionally, Dragon Age Executive Producer Mark Darrah also revealed on Wednesday that the game will feature characters of various sexual orientations. This is something that Bioware fans have come to expect as the developer is known for both their title’s in-game romances as well as their increasing representation of personal preference within their games. Darrah confirmed that the next entry of the Dragon Age franchise will allow for heterosexual, bisexual, and gay characters.
Releasing on Oct 7, Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Players will take on the role of an inquisitor who is the only person known to possess the ability to close rifts which are allowing demons to enter the physical realm of Thedas. Adding to the tension, the game will be set in the country of Orlais which is being ravaged by civil war. Like all Dragon Age games, Inquisition will allow players to build adventure parties with the help of NPC companions.
