Additional details have been posted in regards to the combat system of the upcoming multiplatform video game, "Dragon Age Inquisition." According to a preview from Shack News on June 13, gameplay from the action role-playing game was demonstrated at E3 2014. During the presentation at the gaming convention, Bioware provided a look at one of the encounters with the dragon enemies, which will be prevalent throughout various regions.

Although dragons can be fought in the previous installments, the battles have been expanded in "Dragon Age Inquisition." In one scenario, the player was killing off several dragon babies until the adult started to attack the party with fireballs. The battle commences once the enemy lands on the ground as the team will be able to attack each limb. The behavior of the adult dragon will be altered based on the amount of damage done to its limbs.

To kill the enemy, players use a mix of real-time combat as well as the tactical menu, which pauses the action so that players can plan out their attacks. Shack News believe that the interface was intuitive to use. Bioware previously revealed that the tactical menu will be different between the computer and console versions of the action role-playing game due to the different controller methods. The PC version should cater more to the keyboard and mouse combination unless the user decides to use a gamepad instead.

Aside from "Dragon Age Inquisition," Electronic Arts heavily showcased "Battlefield Hardline" at E3 2014. Both titles should end up being best sellers, especially on the PS4 and Xbox One, during the holiday season. The company also provide a brief look at the upcoming "Mass Effect," "Mirror's Edge" and "Star Wars Battlefront" projects.

The third main "Dragon Age" game is coming out on Oct. 7 in multiple regions later this year. It will be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as the aforesaid PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
