Cameron Lee has revealed more information regarding the Frostbite 3 engine being utilized for "Dragon Age Inquisition," which is in development for the PS4, Xbox One and other platforms. According to a report from The Epoch Times on April 28, the Bioware representative revealed that the development team was able to build the massive dragon enemies with cat-like quickness in the action role-playing game. The engine also enabled the studio to create better looking facial models in addition to building new environments that could be destroyed by the player.

The Frostbite 3 is a product of EA Digital Illusions CE, the developer of "Battlefield 4." The first-person shooting video game is best known for providing massive battles situated in destructible environments. Electronic Arts, the parent company of Bioware and EA Digital Illusions CE, also decided to implement the same engine with the next installments of the "Mass Effect," "Mirror's Edge" and "Star Wars Battlefront" franchises.

Furthermore, Cameron Lee added that the environmental details in "Dragon Age Inquisition" is "amazing" while the lighting effects are described as "stunning." Bioware did recently state that some of the new visual elements won't be present in the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, however. The gameplay should remain the same across all platforms. You can also take a look at his comments from The Wall Street Journal interview below:

The visual fidelity immediately jumps up to just an amazing level. The lighting is just stunning. That allowed us to create a high-fidelity game, allowed us to do destruction in the world. The dragon charges at you, destroys a building.

Fans will finally be able to get their hands on "Dragon Age Inquisition" later this year on Oct. 7. The PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One software product can be bought as a standalone product or through the deluxe edition, which includes a set of exclusive armor and weapons.
