Mike Laidlaw has provided a statement regarding the potential of adding even more playable races in the upcoming cross-generational video game, “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition.” According to an exchange that occurred through Twitter on Oct. 18, a fan asked the creative director from Bioware Montreal if the sequel would let players create a main character as an individual from the Awakened Darkspawn and Spirit races.
Mike Laidlaw found that the ideas are interesting. However, the development team is only focusing on the four announced races so that they won’t be spreading the resources too thin. You can check out some screenshots from the forthcoming “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition” in the slideshow near the top of this article and the comments from the creative director on Twitter below:
Absolutely would be, but we’re focusing on making the four races shine, rather than spreading ourselves too thin.
Bioware Montreal originally planned to make humans the only playable race in the third main installment of the “Dragon Age” series. However, the development team was allotted one extra year in development, which gave them the opportunity to bring back Dwarves and Elves from “Dragon Age: Origins” in addition to adding the Qunari as playable races.
Because of the delay, “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition” is currently slated to come out in the fall of 2014 for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms. Electronic Arts is the company handling the publishing responsibilities for the action role-playing game.
