Jonathan Perry has provided a few more general story details regarding the upcoming multiplatform title, “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition.” In a multi-page interview with Gamer Zines on Oct. 14, the cinematic director at Bioware Montreal provided some information for two of the playable races in the sequel.
Jonathan Perry confirmed that the situation for the Elves has not changed in “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition.” Members of the race are still “treated as slaves or scum” from within the world.
The cinematic director also expressed some interests in the latest playable race for the series, the Qunari. He wanted to see how the non-playable characters react to seeing an individual from that particular group as the main protagonist of the story. In the previous “Dragon Age” installments, the Qunari race is treated as the same as the aforesaid Elves. You can check out some screens from “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition” in the slideshow near the top of this article and his full statement below (courtesy of Gamer Zines):
Absolutely, in the Dragon Age world elves are still treated as slaves or scum. What will be really interesting in Dragon Age: Inquisition is to see how characters react to a Qunari Inquisitor because they’re in a similar position as the elves were in Dragon Age: Origins. People are pretty sceptical of a putting a Qunari in a position of power.
Players also have the option to play as the Dwarf and Human races in addition to the aforementioned Elf and Qunari. “Dragon Age 3: Inquisition” is in production for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The forthcoming sequel is expected to come out during the autumn release time frame of 2014 in North America and other regions.
