New Trailer for Dragon Age Inquisition Released

A new trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition titled "Lead Them or Fall" debuted at Microsoft's E3 press conference this morning. In addition to showing off the game's beautiful environments and some snippets of story, it also reaffirms the game's previously announced October 7 release date.

Players will take on the role of The Inquisitor, with the game's main plot set all over the world of Thedas and concerning a tear in the Veil that threatens the world itself. War between mages and templars will figure into this story. Certain characters from both previous games will make their return, with an announced nine possible party members to join the Inquisitor on his or her journey.

It’s a highly collaborative atmosphere in the room, says Dragon Age Executive Producer Mark Darrah, as designers call out issues which are then assigned to project leads who work to make sure the demonstration is close to flawless by the time it’s shown live on stage to the hundreds of video game journalists in Los Angeles, and thousands more fans watching online.

“You’re trying to get everything perfect so it shows as well as it can. One of the things that we found is it’s actually quite difficult to show a role-playing game in that kind of setting,” says Darrah. “You kind of really want some time with it to let the story pull you in and sort of ‘live’ with it.”

Creative Director Mike Laidlaw says the E3 showing will allow BioWare to hone in on relationships in the game as “there’s a real appeal to feeling like there’s this team that kind of has your back but often doesn’t have your back very well...”

“That’s one of the core things we’re exploring in Inquisition. What’s it like to be the leader? There’s a lot of emphasis on you deploying troops and giving orders and listening to advisers, so feeling more like a commander who’s making a call.”

According to Dragon Age lore, the Grey Wardens were "seasoned veterans who had known nothing their entire lifetimes except hopeless war," and who came together to wage an aggressive campaign against during the First Blight. Blights are periods in the Dragon Age universe when the Darkspawn transform an Old God into an Arch Demon.

The Fortress of Adamant is a fortress once owned by the Grey Wardens and stood "as a bastion against the Darkspawn spilling out from the Abyssal Rift," but was ultimately abandoned after the Western Approach had "become a wasteland."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
