Players will be able to choose between four fantasy races, several different classes, and their character’s preferred gender when Dragon Age: Inquisition releases later this year. While many games limit what classes certain races can be, Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw confirmed on March 13 that fans will be able to play any combination of race and class with one exception. Due to the lore of the series, dwarves cannot be mages because of their magical resistances.

Every race and gender can be any class, except dwarves, who still have no mages.

Bioware is currently at work making sure the individual races, and each gender, has their own unique animations to use for each possible class. Aaryn Flynn, general manager for Bioware’s Edmonton and Montreal studios, announced on Thursday that the animations for the male qunari mage are now coming along nicely.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to release this fall on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Unlike Dragon Age II, the series’ third installment will once again allow fans to choose to play as different fantasy races include humans, elves, dwarves, and qunari.
