Gamers will be able to create a hero from a variety of different backgrounds in Dragon Age: Inquisition as Bioware’s upcoming third installment to the franchise will give fans the option to choose to play as various fantasy races. Clarifying what players can expect in the way of customization between the races on Feb 19, Dragon Age: Inquisition Creative Director Mike Laidlaw revealed that each in-game race will be different in shape and size from other races but confirmed that players won’t be able to manually adjust specific body attributes such as height or weight.

After fans inquired if there would be any sliders for advanced character model manipulation, Laidlaw gave the following reply.

No, there will not. They are, however, all different sizes.

In other words, while each race will differ from the other races of Thedas, all members within one particular race will be similar to each other. For example, all Dwarves will use the same in-game model and will thus be of the same height.

Fans will be able to play as Humans, Elves, Dwarves, or Qunari in Dragon Age: Inquisition. This is one more race than was available for play in the first Dragon Age game. Dragon Age II, however, didn’t give players the option to choose their in-game race as the second entry featured a human-only protagonist.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to release later this year on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
