Dragon Age III: Inquisition will boast a major graphical leap thanks to the raw power of the Frostbite 2 engine. BioWare's Neil Thompson spoke with OXM about the game's visuals, claiming that when they finally pull back the curtain on the title, fans of the series won't be disappointed.
"Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 were both done using BioWare's own Eclipse engine, and it was starting to creak a little bit when Dragon Age 2 came out," he explained. "Inquisition is being done on the Frostbite 2 engine and it is an astonishingly powerful engine."
Thompson went on to add:
The Dragon Age artists were always slightly disappointed at how their work was visualised in the final product with Eclipse, but with Frostbite, they've just done some amazing stuff.
There was a pre-production period where almost on a weekly basis I'd be sitting in the environment reviews and being blown away by what was coming out - it looks stunningly beautiful. So I think when we do start releasing screenshots, people won't be disappointed.
