BioWare brought a new look at Dragon Age 4 to Gamescom Opening Night Live 2020, and when we say new look, we mean it showed us some concept art. Again.
The trailer's over four minutes long, but we only get about then seconds of gameplay footage. And even then, it's clearly very, very early in development. We're not expecting to get our hands on this one for a long time.
Useless. Absolutely useless.
BioWare... Come on man.
@ShogunRok you can squeeze in a few more run throughs of Inquisition before then, surely?!
Hey, if that's all they've got to show, then at least it's good of them to show it, right? Not long ago, stories of BioWare's closure and the cancellation of Dragon Age 4 were circulating, so at least this demonstrates and reinforces their commitment (for now).
I liked watching that video. It was a reminder of why I care, and those few fleeting glimpses of potential are all I need to stay hyped.
No faith in this 2 was trash, Inquisition was meh and this'll mostly likely be Anthem in Thedas the wonderful amazing talent behind Origins is loooooooong gone
I didn't come close to finishing Dragon Age Inquisition (haven't completed a single RPG since I've been married), so this gives me a bit of time to catch up, lol.
Also, since I didn't play DAI, can someone tell me if those are NEW voice lines being recorded, or if they just used old footage of DAI's development for this trailer?
@stinkyx The character names for the second and third voice actors, Bellara and Davrin, are new to the franchise, so it cannot be old footage. Not sure whether that's a new recording for Solus, but then I kinda drifted off whenever he started talking!
There is hope at least.
People going crazy on Youtube, so if they do not mess it up they have the fan base waiting.
That article header says "see you in 2023" but I doubt that's a joke with how sparse info on this game is
Well, I won’t lie ...I still managed to get hyped by those creature and dungeons designs
@TheFrenchiestFry When I was watching the trailer I was thinking the same, "This game won't come out before 2023."
I'm thinking maybe fall 2022 but to be honest they really need to take their time and get this right so the longer the better probably.
The saddest thing is that Bioware was working on DA4 at least as far back as 2017, and maybe earlier. (DA:I came out in 2014). The people involved were happy with how things were coming along, making a game and story that the fans would love, and the idea back then was that the game would be out by now.
Then EA got involved, forced them to scrap it all because they wanted to cram microtransactions into it, and a lot of the people involved in the project have since left. So now we're left with them starting over, and we'll likely never get the game that could have been. Really, We should be on DA5 or even DA6 if they would just let them work and make good products.
@kyleforrester87 I'm saving it for my 120fps 4K run on PS5.
@ShogunRok 120fps is the new 4K, complete waste of time and developers should focus on resolution not frame rate.
Considering Biowares last few games I doubt many people care.
I love the Dragon Age series but I'm a little concerned for this next one now that David Gaider is no longer penning it.
Looking awesome. Yeah DA2 was cheap but inquisition more than made up for it. Love the worldlore and combat in this game. And if the game is made with as much passion as the amazing concept art for DA3 I have huge hope for this game!
Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see the problem here regarding lack of content. Unless I'm misremembering, there's a lot more in this video than the last one: tons of concept art, some work-in-progress locations and gameplay, some motion-capture, animation work...
I mean, sure, it's not likely to release until late next year at best, but was that ever in doubt to begin with?
As for what's actually here, there does seem to be a few interesting things: There's a piece of concept art that seems to show underwater exploration, some gameplay test footage showing a more action-oriented gameplay style, some stuff on Solas (making it clear that this game is going to follow on from Inquisition) including some concept art on how he could look, some interesting creature/character designs, and a somewhat impressive range of environments.
Admittedly, none of this is much of a signifier on the game's quality (which, given Bioware's previous two titles, is at least a little suspect) as, yes, it's still early days, but it's still a nice teaser into some of the possible ideas and concepts the next game is working with, if nothing else.
Come on, we know game devs are making games. No need announcement for that.
