[Information is a year old and some story points may be changed later on in development]

General details:

>game takes place primarily in Tevinter but we'll have missions in the Anderfells, Seheron, Antiva, Deep Roads, and the Fade, etc..
>60% of the game world is represented by the capital city of Minrathous which is 200 times bigger than Denerim in DAO
>Minrathous will be a open and living city with moving npcs that walk around, buy goods, do busy work,, think of how npc's acted within Novigrad in the Witcher 3
>the city will have large temples, statues, large buildings and towers, markets, docks, fountains, giant walls which you can explore and other cool areas like a coliseum and even an aqueduct which you can climb
>if you hadn't noticed yet Minrathous will be heavily based on imperial Rome and Constantinople and in lore is the largest city in thedas with nearly 1 million inhabitants
>the city is divided into 5 zones/districts with no loading screens to get into each one so it's all integral
>the districts include, the noble district which is in the upper/Northmost part of the city set on a hill which will have three different staircases that can get you in and out of the district
>within that district you have a smaller district encased in marble walls and only accessed by gate called the Imperial quarter which houses the Imperial Senate house, the Grand Library of Tevinter (lorewise its equivalent to the library of Alexandria and is nearly impossible to get into - there will be a quest dedicated just to that place), Archons Palace, the grand temple of Dumat and sentaorial mansions
>the lower half of the city includes includes the market district, the "plebeian/worker class district", the coliseum district which also includes an academy of magic, the library of minrathous, imperial army headquarters and finally the poor district

>the streets of Minrathous are all cobbeled, the outside walls are large guarded by just as large juggernaut statues which are massive black golems
>the city has three bridges that connect it to the outside world which you can also explore before being told to turn around
>the other 40% of the game world will be large maps and dungeons similar to the zones in DAI
>one specific zone will be a swamp marsh area where you'll get one companion and a tied story mission

PLAYER CHARACTER:

>Your character can only be human for story reasons, that means you won't be able to play as a elf, dwarf, qunari etc...
>can play as male or female
>there's a CC filter on being homosexual, heterosexual or bi and influence some dialogue line as well as romance options
>your character' last name is Lanius and will be referred to as such by all the NPCs and text
>DAR will be more story and character focused than DAI, you have a mother and father and a dead male/female thats interchangeable based on your sex ie if you're male you'll have a dead sister and vice versa
>your dead sibling is dead before game and will be involved in a form of a quest with your own mother
>vastly improved CC system, you can literally make a young Liam Neeson type character if you wish, it's that good and it's the best CC system ever made
>You'll have 7 companions, 4 males and 3 females
>of those 7, one will be a dwarf, another an elf, and there'll be a qunari companion
>if you take any of these characters on mission with you within Minrathous prepare to have racist encounters and with the Qunari a literal bloodbath
>the main female romance option of males is named Eva Scala and her father is senator Daedeulus Scala leader of Populares faction of the imperial senate
>your father is a minor noble of the equastarian rank and is leader of the knightly class of Tevinter, he is in constant conflict with the patricians/senators especially Scala
>the rest of the companions I'll mention in the story bits

GAMEPLAY:

>loads of build variety
>blood magic returns and your story is affected if you use blood magic/become a blood Mage
>NPCS and companions will mention that a lot if you actually choose the blood Mage path
>the canon is to play a Mage but you can still play as a warrior or rogue
>the rogue is actually super fun to play as, you'll actually be a stealth assassin type figure if you spec into it
>warriors are just warriors, still cool
>items system is the exact same as DAI
>RNG is more forgivable in DAR than DAI however the higher difficulty the less luck with RNG
>can craft weapons and armour
>can tint, color and modify your armour
>weapons are less final fantasy looking
>five different difficulties, easy, normal, hard, very hard, nightmare
>no new game plus
>can customize companions
>you have a den in Minrathous similar to the assassin's den in assassin's Creed brotherhood
>you and Daedealus Scala lead this secret society known as the Old Order whose fundamental goal is to bring back the last two untainted old dragon gods to fight against a "greater evil"
>you recruit people similar to how you recruited individuals in DAI and send them on missions of assassinations, political intrigue, resource gathering etc...pretty much similar to DAI
>you get rewards for mission completion including exp, crafting resources, rare weapons and items, and Old Order points used to unlock perks in the Perk system

STORY [subject to change since these points are year old]

Also I forgot the mention that DAR is planned to be unveiled at E3 2018 with Anthem and will have a release date for March 2019.

>game is set in 9:51 Dragon
>the Qunari have invaded Tevinter in six different invasion points
>they've already conquered the northern half of tevinter except for Minrathous which is guarded by its powerful walls on land and by the Imperial Navy at sea
>you're apart of a southern tevinter relief force
>game starts off with massive cinematic battle
>you pick your gender, do your CC, pick your class
>you're apart of a 4 man specialist commando force including yourself, Eva Scala which the commander, one warrior named Constantius, and a rouge named Justin (both of whom die at the end of the level)
>the first area of the game is the army camp area
>get assigned the mission by the general/commander Mage literally name Maximus Decimus (there's there's loads of name refererances to everything Rome and Roman including movies/TV shows) and dropped off immediately behind enemy lines

Yeah but what about Morrigan m8

I hope this is true and I get to destroy Qunari and elf shits and while being a blood mage supremacist

She's not in the game. Her story is done. Only Solas and Dorian will be in this game, Dorian being a small cameo - also YOU can have a fling with him if he didn't romance the inquisitor. All of that is determined by Dragon Age Keep choices.

>>
>>392249173
This. It's actually a valid marketing technique to have your main character be so hilariously generic that you draw in popularity because of how easy it is to insert yourself into the story in place of the protag without any loss of narrative.

I mean hell, look at Twilight and those shitty Hunger Games books, movies, everything.
>>
>>392248457
I'm a huge Warhammer Fantasy fan and I consider the Fade as a different take on the chaos realm. It corrupts its users and is the main source of the magic in both universes. However in Warhammer mages have no equals and they have free reign over pretty much in everything. Nobody knows when a Empire mage could turn into a Chaos Spawn but yet everybody reveres them. In Dragon Age however there is an institutionalized repression of mages for this exact same reason.

This is why I find the Templar vs Mage conflict so interesting and I hope we will see more of that conflict in the fourth Dragon Age game.

I FUCKING SEE YOU BACK THERE, SHITTY AGENDA-PUSHING SJW DEVS.

Morrigan getting out when she did is probably the best thing for the character considering how they already started fucking over her character ever since Witch Hunt even. She wouldn't survive another game without going full-on 343 studios Cortana.

Mage Circles are cool but they have no idea what to do with them, Ferelden/Orlesian circles are disbanded/reformed in most endings of Inquisition.

Also DA4 is Tevinter, there are no circles because Magic rules over men there and Templars have little authority.

People with taste.

>>392249260
How is it that the only sign they have any fucking clue what the fans want (Morrigan) makes an appearance in DA:I and is the only remotely attractive thing in the entire game both in personality and physical appearance and they fail to bring her back in any form for any future game.

It's completely baffling.

Morrigan is the purest in fantasy escapism. She's the cynical country-witch who through your heroic example warms up to the world. She has every reason to be an irredeemable piece of shit but with a monumental act of fantasy fulfillment you truck on and melt her heart. She is the fucking embodiment of the nice guy fantasy.

These are the questions that are never answered. This is why nobody respects journalists because they don't put a fucking gun to the developer's head and demand an answer why the best thing to come out of the series doesn't come back. Would you fucking have a Batman story without Alfred?

Get the fuck out of here with that. If she cared about decent around her son, she wouldn't be wearing the outfit she wore when her attitude was literally "I could care less if I walked around naked this is purely for your comfort".

You couldn't see shit before either, the inclusion of the painted-on bra is minuscule but so forcefed that I can't help but be insulted. It makes absolutely no sense other than some dev/designer, somewhere, said "Isn't this a bit too lewd?" to which someone else responded "You're right, but a bra on her or something so she isn't showing as much skin but don't ruin her design or we'll piss off the fanboys which are the only reason she's in the game in the first place".

But an entire studio was ruined. Bioware Montreal is pretty much gone.

I understand that you mean the entire Bioware organization, which in itself is a EA organization. But the thing is, they're all subsidiaries of EA. The fact that Bioware named it Bioware Montreal doesn't make them any less a relatively autonomous studio (that takes marching orders from elsewhere). Bioware Mythic is it's own studio that just renamed from Mythic Entertainment at EA's direction because the name "Bioware" has pull. EA can name any number of studios Bioware-this or Bioware-that because it just sounds better than EA-this or EA-that.

The organization that was the studio Bioware Montreal died. It's name is now so fucking toxic due to the reception of the game that it had to disappear.

Not to hijack your thread OP but I figure as long as it's time for BioWare leaks, BW is in talks with Disney to regain the license for and make a new Knights of the Old Republic. It's the primary reason Casey Hudson returned to the company and Disney is receptive, but the primary concern is what it will entail and whether it will be released under the Legends sub-brand or as canon. The game is still in early planning stages but it appears to be receiving a tentative go-ahead. EA was very against it but apparently has failed to uphold a portion contract with Disney by failing to produce more Star Wars games than Battlefront rehashes, which lost them clout in the negotiation.

Old news, Hudson was brought back because Flynn did a shitty job as GM. People like to autistically screech at Hudson but people forget that he's a competent studio head unlike Flynn that got sacked.
>>
>>392251074
>Hahaha I didn't fuck up they're just going to make your choices not matter!
Good save since Bioware would actually do this, but you fucked up by not mentioning the Inquisitor's role. Trespasser set them up to be the Anderson/Duncan of DA4.

>>392251648

No, if all goes well then we'll have three more games after DAR

He's been relegated to reference role and won't appear in game.

BW needed Hudson back for that reason but a crack at Kotor is what made him say yes

>>392250337
that's been EA's 'agenda' for like half a decade and then some. they keep trying to turn 'Bioware' into a broad studio label they can attach to every 'nerd' genre release.

Remember that command and conquer game that was made by a completely not Bioware at all studio, that EA made change their name to 'Bioware Victory'

IIRC there's no dwarfholds near Tevinter, elfs are """disappearing""", and Qunari are probably killed on sight

not many options here

There better be an option to kill every quinari and elf on sight, but since this is bioware it will be a dissapointment just as DAI.

That's a sure fire way to ruin it.

>>392251882
the qunari are so obvious added late. so many bugs and worse armor options, even their own racial DLC had bugs with them alone.

Amazed the dwarves looked good in everything,but that's probably more given how bad Inquisitions aestehtics are, being a midget somewhat fixes it.

I actually didn't think it was that bad, but it was heavily flawed. If they push it out fast then it'll be shit. If they spend time on it then it can be decent. I know better than to expect the latter.

Sure, I'll bite. How do the romances work? Are characters of your preferred sex playersexual or is there the standard 1het/1bi/1homo? As in, if I choose straight male or homosexual female, will all female romance options be available to my character?

I just think it's interesting that /v/ managed to alter the lore of a game they hated, whose developers hated them in turn.

Great.

>>392253337
mage is 'canon' only in the sense their retarded drama is now all about muh magic and freedums vs the anti magic oppressors. they are just trying to half assedly force you to have stakes in the magic side of the conflict.

same reason Bethany always lived in da2 if you were a non mage but Carver lives if you were a mage. if Carver lived for non mages it's too easy and obvious to just say 'fuck mages, broforce templar form' and purge shit.

you watch either your dead siblign is a mage where convient, ro you yet again get a totally not magic but is magic protagonist power.
>>
>>392253708
we didn't alter shit. they just got called out non stop for having her live when decisions allowed her to die so they wrote an obvious asspull to allow to her to have lived on save's people said she died.

the majority of people obviously kept her alive because the save data people almost always port over is the 'good' results. bad choices are second playthrough saves usually.

Of course it was an asspull but it was also word-for-word identical to the Spirit of Faith theory that was circulated on /v/. There's being similar and there's being identical.
>>
>>392251018

It's not. That is how I actually know this leak is bullshit because the guy said her story is done when the last scene of the DA:I base game is Flemeth sending Mythal to Morrigan. Done my ass.

There's no mention of Solas plan, the elven followers he's gathered, Sten being the new Arishok, what your new home base is like, why the protagonist is special, or how those Elven Asshole Gods tie in.
>>
>>392254262
he's clearly mixing Kerran up with the soul Kerran had.

Flemeth took the old god soul from morrifan's kid, then gave the kid back.

Solas then took Mythal from Flemeth

What game? See I'd actually play that game. Sounds a fuckton more interesting than Dragon Age.

4 are 3 games too many. DA:O was a good game and a story that needed no sequel. And all sequels were so disgustingly bad that they might as well not exist.
>>
>>392255218
Eh, I thought Cisquisition was alright. Not good, just alright.

But DA2 was "holy shit nigger what are you doing?" levels of bad.
>>
>>392255091
maybe not 'now' but Trespasser's ending is literally 'Lawl resolved nothing sequel bait LMAO' some epilogue pandering and 'we made the Dwarf runegirl a lesbian and dating Sera, enjoy.

the only way there isn't another dragon age is if bioware is dissolved before hand.
>>
>>392255430

Not really. EA calls the shots. After what they did to Mass Effect Andromeda I'd be thoroughly amazed if Bioware ever releases another large scale single player RPG.
>>
>>392255430
>we made the Dwarf runegirl a lesbian and dating Sera

What? I played tresspasser and I don't remember that.
>>
>>392255716
I think it only gets brought up if you go through every convo with them. Every character had a sort of side quest chain of dialogues to try and send them off.
>>
Does anyone else feel like developers are going the easy way nowadays by building huge as fuck pixel theme parks with no soul instead of game world's worth remebering?

Even the witcher had this rlto some extend. I don't give a fuck about size. Just give me the island setting but make it awesome.
>>
>>392255934
>Every character had a sort of side quest chain of dialogues to try and send them off.

So do any of the romances stay through the ending of Tresspasser or do they all find some bullshit reason to abandon you?
>>
>>392255716
If you were for some reason dumb enough to leave Sera around, AND didn't romance her AND have whatever the dwarf girl's name is, then you can talk to Sera and she mentions a bunch of loving the dwarf's stupid meme ideas and they have randum sparkle lesbian love and stupid pet names and the epilogue text will mention they are involved outright.

this is a different dwarf than scout Harding, if you romanced no one but flirted with Harding Vivienne gives dialogue implying you are dating Harding at the spa, but otherwise never fugs sera
>>
>>392256040
No, far as I remember they all stay loyal. I only gayed it up with Josephine, but in her ending you go live in her home country with her and get accepted by her family as one of them.

Listen this all sounds like my kind of shit so I'm 100% convinced that either
A) You're bullshitting us for lulz (Fair play)
or B) It's real but Bioware will fuck it all up in spectacular fashion and kill their other major franchise.
>>
>>392256040
they get acknowledged as far as I know, Scout Harding gets to be an implied canon end if you flirted with her and are single.

admittedly the most payoff is for anybody whoa actually romanced Solas but they pretty heavily 'but thou must' you into begin unable to ever truly side with his cause.

Yeah. I kind of wish linear RPGs with strong stories and characters and memorable boss fights would make some sort of comeback instead of these bloated open world RPGs that are big for the sake of being big.

I mean it's been like eight years now since everyone shit all over FFXIII's linearity. Certainly that's enough time to wait before trying again.

Finally BW is making NPC alive. Good for them to take inspo from TW3.

It's not too promising that 60% of it takes place in a city. Bigger than Denerim main zone or all of them combined? It's nice is all open, at least.

I liked the "OP zoned" again, because it allows for different scenarios, e.g. the night time dune in DAI was beautiful and unique compared to the new age of open world RPG. BUT, they need to make it feel alive, i.e. dynamic.

Fucking bullshit on race. Fucking BioWare, why can't you or EA understand that human is boring. I understand that because of the world lore you're kinda limited, but guess what, stop with powerful political PC. Let them be a spy/thief/work in the shadows.
I don't believed the CC for sexuality. It doesn't feel their thing, and now I'm wondering if this is all bullshit by a guessing fan, or if EA forced them for LGBT cool points. Funny, because I don't think those fans would approve this.

So the dead sibling won't be dead, right? Or, they'll appear in some form or another. Why even change the sex?

BW can't in hair. Stop lying BW, though DAI chargen was decent enough. I saw many unique PC.

DA2 combat isn't that bad, it received bad press due to the anime animations, flesh explosions, waves, and because it was faster and normanized from DAO, oh and press a button. But the combo system and the care to flash out the classes (they got limited as a consequence though) was welcomed, IMO.

RNG. It should be the contrary, you dumb fuckers. Also, remove the regen of barriers/health/etc. It makes combat too easy.

Customize companions how? If armor/weapon/skills, ok.

The table mission was fine text lite rpg, I don't mind it much.

Tevinter got qunar'd. Sad.
Is the grey wolf Solas? Oh, he's Salos now..Yeah, I don't believe it. Kill him? Fucking nevah

Inquisitor loses the anchor arm. it's PAINFULLY obvious this is done to prevent the character from being a viable protag in the next game.

yes realistically this needent impede a character in that universe, but bio ware ain't animating a unique one armed combat style and ain't making a unique body mesh.
