Fresh details on BioWare’s as-yet unannounced fantasy RPG Dragon’s Age III have emerged via a survey.
According to the survey (via NeoGAF), which remains unverified at present, players will assume the role of the leader of The Inquisition – quite who this organisation is remains a mystery at present, however.
You’ll pick from a warrior, mage or thief class, and assemble a team of up to 10 team mates to battle against a new evil. This can be achieved either by directly attacking on the battlefield or indulging in a spot of political warfare and sending out spies.
Online and co-op were both mentioned in the survey alongside special finishing moves and controlling four party members at a time. The info has already been discussed at length on the BioWare forums, and while many remain sceptical, it hasn’t been outright dismissed at the time of writing.
Dragon Age III is something BioWare has teased on numerous occasions in the past, though for one reason or another it seems intent on holding off on a formal reveal.
See below for a supposed plot synopsis:
"The great nation of Orlais, the most powerful empire in Dragon Age, tears itself apart in civil war. The stout men and women of Ferelden struggle to recover and reclaim their nation from the horde of vile Darkspawn that lay waste to its lands a decade ago. The Templar order has broken away, claiming the church has become too lax in policing the dangerous powers of the mages. The Mage circleshave rebelled, believing the Templars have become too strict, too zealous in their duties, and too quick to slaughter those who step out of line.
"The world of Dragon Age is one on the brink of collapse, and when a desperate gathering in the name of peace becomes the epicentre of a magical blast that decimates the Chantry’s leadership, it becomes clear that someone or something is manipulating events to drive the world into chaos.
"From the ashes of that explosion, something new rises: The Inquisition. As the Inquisitor, it falls to you to build up your power and martial your forces, uncover secrets and build connections across the world. You must explore forgotten spaces, uncover ancient mysteries and uproot those who would destroy the fabric of the world."
