Mike Laidlaw has answered more fan questions concerning the upcoming “Dragon Age Inquisition.” In an exchange from his personal Twitter page on April 16, a fan wondered if the story of the action role-playing game would change based on the gender selected by the player. For example, the crowd would react negatively to a powerful woman.

The creative director responded by saying that the inhabitants of “Dragon Age Inquisition” should not have a problem with females in powerful positions. Bioware did confirm in the past that the player’s race should have an impact on the plot, however. In the character creation mode, the video game offers four racial options: Dwarf, Elf, Human and Qunari.

Another follower wanted to know about the PC specs for “Dragon Age Inquisition.” Mike Laidlaw admitted that Bioware has not yet revealed the requirements for running the software product on computers. However, the company should be able to announce the details sometime before launch.

Finally, the creative director confirmed that players will be able to customize their armor in the sequel. Conversely, there might be some limitations as the boots can’t be modified. Along with the main character, the rest of the party composed of pre-defined companions. Some of the potential party members are returning from “Dragon Age Origins” and “Dragon Age 2” while others will be making their first appearance in the series with the upcoming title.

“Dragon Age Inquisition” should end up having similar requirements as the PC version of “Battlefield 4” as both games are built from Frostbite 3. The same graphics engine is also being used in the tentatively-titled “Mass Effect 4” as well the next “Star Wars Battlefront” and “Mirror’s Edge” installments. In addition to the PC, “Dragon Age Inquisition” will also be launching on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One this autumn.
