Dragon Age:Inquisition Too Similiar To Mass Effect III?

Dragon Age:Inquisition is set to be BioWare’s first stab at the next generation so what can we expect from the latest addition to the franchise?

Dragon Age Inquisition Hope To Surpass Predecessor

While the second iteration of the Dragon Age Series was not a failure by any means and in general proved a worthy follow-up to its stellar predecessor, Dragon Age:Origins, some fans had more than a few complaints about the game.

They were not long in leaving these complaints be heard either and BioWare are looking to address many of these concerns with the third edition of the series, Dragon age :Inquisition.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is set to be one of the most ambitious projects yet undertaken by BioWare and will be a significant upgrade on its predecessors with more customisation options than ever before.

Does DA:Inquisition Story Resemble Mass Effect III?

The scale of Dragon age:Inquisition’s story is set to be bigger than anything we have seen so far and involves casting the player as the leader of an army designed to repel threats from beyond the realm. This army is the “Inquisition” referred to in the games title.

Barriers between the real world and an alternate world of ghostly spirits known as “the fade” are being broken down and the Inquisition must seek help before the causes are indentified.

It’s not the most original story from the outset apparently, and many fans are questioning how much the games plot is currently resembling Mass effect III , which itself was not immune from gamers complaints.

Dragon Age Producer Adresses Similiarity Questioning

Cameron Lee, a producer involved in the release, recently answered a few of the questions that are being posed about their game and the similarities to previous BioWare titles.

“We have this event that occurs and the world is in chaos, sure, but in Mass Effect, you always knew what the threat was, you always knew that the reapers were there. In Dragon Age: Inquisition, whilst there is a humongous tear in the sky, and all these powerful factions and nations are in chaos – all this is happening at once, and that’s a little too strange to just suddenly occur and be coincidence.

“And it’s not necessarily about uncover some truths and get this person on side in order to deal with the thing at the end, it’s a lot more complex than that… So in Mass Effect you formed factions but it was mostly on a personal scale, whereas in Inquisition you’re talking about having a personal impact, but mostly through these big crunchy, meaty decisions and impacts that the Inquisition can have on the world. It’s kind of like the difference between being a Jedi, and founding the Jedi Order.”

Dragon Age III Release Date

It is probably better to take a wait-and-see approach before jumping to any conclusions and judge the story for itself instead of the limited details we know now.
