Mike Laidlaw has made a comparison between his upcoming multiplatform project, “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition,” and “The Elder Scrolls” series. As reported by Shack News of Aug. 22, the creative director from Bioware believed that the experiences of the two products are different.
Mike Laidlaw stated that the video games from the “The Elder Scrolls” series “can be absolutely enthralling” as players can “lose” themselves for hours upon hours. For “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition,” the development team is more focus on the story department. By “having a tighter emphasis on story,” they are able to stress some of the plot elements such as moral decisions.
He also promised that the sequel will stay true to the rest of the installments of the “Dragon Age” franchise. Players can expect to work with other members of their party in order to progress through the story.
“Dragon Age 3: Inquisition” features several open-world elements that were inspired from the “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.” As a result, the third main installment of the “Dragon Age” series will include bigger areas when compared to the prior titles.
Mike Laidlaw and his team at the Montreal studio of Bioware is planning to complete the development for “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition” in time for launch sometime during the fall season in 2014.
