I remember when Dragon Age trailers were all Marilyn Manson, blood, guts and witchy sex. How things have changed. Or perhaps not. The latest trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition shows some in-game footage, including a moment of dodge-rolling that made me hanker for Dark Souls II even more than I already am, but it’s mostly bombastic music and high-falutin’ voiceovers. In fact, watch the Origins trailer and this one back to back, switch out ‘Blight’ for ‘Breach’ whenever one or the other occurs, and it doesn’t look all that different. Prettier though. And with less blood and sex.
I may risk offending the fandom by saying this, but I presume the smarmy ‘raining demons’ chap is a returning character? The close up and the fact that he interrupts the trailer’s Serious Fantasy Business make him stand out like a proper actor doing an ill-advised cameo in a Uwe Boll movie. Dragon Age is very confusing to me. I did play Origins for a while but then I realised it was about eighty hours longer than I’d expected so I stopped.
No witchy sex for me.
