BioWare recently sprung into action showing off the magnificence of its upcoming action role-playing video game known as Dragon Age: Inquisition. The developer has released a ton of screenshots and new details about the game, even though, the game is still months away from its launch. As the third major game in the franchise, Dragon Age: Inquisition will contain elements of both earlier games in the series.
BioWare Reveals 27 New Dragon Age: Inquisition Screenshots and In-Game Class and Character Details
BioWare has released almost 30 new Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots that are dotted around the official website of the game. The screenshots show everything from beautiful new in-game characters to terrifying giant beasts. It looks like some of the provided new Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots have been captured from the trailer that was released recently.
Not only the new Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots can be found on the game's site, BioWare has also been wise enough to put in a bunch of new class and character progression details. Three main character classes are included in the game, which are, Mage, Warrior and Rogue. Further more, each of these are divided into three specialized characters' classes, which are, Artificer, Knight Enchanter and Champion. Descriptions for these classes are given below along with the new Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots.
"Each comes with a unique set of abilities, weaponry, special moves, and even class-reactive story content," reads the introduction to the class page on the game's website "Further, as your Inquisitor grows in power, you will be able to select a specialization. These advanced classes introduce entirely new abilities to your combat repertoire."
Battle-hardened and masters of close combat, warriors are pivotal to any group entering battle. As front-line fighters, they absorb the brunt of opponent attacks, steal enemy focus, and create an opening for deadly ranged assaults from other classes. While some warriors prefer visceral, sweeping damage, many are silverite-clad bulwarks, weathering any blows they don't deflect with their shields.
Champions are defenders and protectors, and when a warrior trains in the champion's tradition, he or she becomes unstoppable. Champions use their armor, weapon and awareness to shrug off incoming attacks while holding critical positions on the battlefield and protecting allies in the process.
Those who can tap into the raw energy of the Fade and block the whispering temptations of demons are truly exceptional. When they turn that mental focus onto the field of war, they can be truly terrifying opponents. Rains of fire, walls of ice, or even the ability to heal allies make up a mage's toolkit. Most employ considerable skills rendering foes not only weakened, but also vulnerable to physical attacks, setting up opportunities for their teammates to exploit.
Among the Circles of Magi, only a few mages have the strength of will necessary to focus their energy inward. Wrapped in protective magics and wielding blades of arcane force, the Knight Enchanters are rare, but inspiring sights as they lead the charge into enemy ranks.
Armed with bows, daggers, and any number of dirty tricks, the rogue's primary focus is damage: tearing foes down one at a time with systematic efficiency. Rogues commonly use a mixture of stealth and mobility to reach positions of advantage, be it a sniper's perch away from enemy blades or behind an unsuspecting mage. Deadly and resourceful, rogues can tip the balance of any strategic assault.
Intricate mechanisms are the core of the artificer's craft: Deadly traps; Distracting contraptions; Marvels of engineering turned to deadly purpose. If an artificer is standing at the far end of a seemingly innocuous stretch of the battlefield, you should find another path. If he or she is smiling? Best just to hope your affairs are in order.
BioWare's Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to launch on October 7, 2014 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
