Into The Fire: Dragon Age Battle Footage


Dragon Age is a fantasy RPG. No, it’s true. It’s being made by Bioware and everything. Still don’t believe me? Well I have irrefutable evidence placed just beyond the cut: a battle to save a town from two different perspectives. Big Man With Sword and Wizard Girl, respectively. There’s even a pause in the action while orders are issued to the rest of the party. Conclusive proof.

There’s still no date confirmed for this origin-story-telling RPG, but we’re expecting it to save the peasants from dark powers by the end of the year. And why is that dude standing in the fire? We may never know.

Dragon Age: Origins: Origins

Smash the barrel!

Below the jump is a pleasantly long video showing off Dragon Age‘s conversations, from the perspective of a few different races, and demonstrating the difference that various origin stories will make.

Dragon Age: Origins ‘Dev Walkthrough’


The two sizable videos that lie beyond the cut contain a wide expanse of Dragon Age information, with tonnes of in-game footage. There’s plenty of time spent in the game world, looking at quests, conversations and so on – far more detail of the general RPG stuff than we’ve seen previously. It’s spoilerific, obviously, but the amount of detail covered in the two pieces certainly has me looking forward to this game even more than I had been previously. The GameVideos servers seem to be creaky slow at the moment, so this might take some time to load.

Dragon Age is due in Q1 2009, apparently.

E3: The Trailers – Dragon Age Origins

Whadda ya think – is Bioware’s next RPG, reportedly a spiritual Baldur’s Gate sequel, looking mightier than it did in the last trailer? Open letter to Bioware though: please, for the love of Tzeentch, hire a different voice actor for whoever Your Majesty is. The guy sounds like an annoyed Blue Peter Presenter.

Dragon Age: Origins


The Dragon Age site has changed to reveal a link to the already-populated forums, a subscription link for a newsletter, and a link to the apparently-in-engine trailer on GameTrailers. It has also picked up a subtitle, which is odd, because “origins” is usually a title you tag onto something further down the line, when you feel the need to do a prequel, right? Anyway, the not-actually-CGI trailer is after the jump.
