Dragon Age 3: Inquisition Creative Director Discusses Rolling, Dialogue Options and More

Mike Laidlaw talks about various features in the upcoming Dragon Age title from BioWare.

BioWare’s Mike Laidlaw, Creative Director and one of the primary driving forces behind Dragon Age: Inquisition has always been diligent in providing responses on Twitter to questions about the game. Today, he provided a few answers to questions posed to him that fans of the upcoming role-playing game might find intriguing.

First up, according to Laidlaw, players will be able to purchase the ability to roll in combat. Unlike Dark Souls’ roll and dodge feature, characters will have to purchase the ability to roll in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Laidlaw also reiterated the fact that Morrigan will be showing up in the game, though not as a party member. She will have a “significant role” to play in the story.

Interestingly, there will be multiple accent choices for the main character in the game. According to the developer, English voiceover will support both British and American accents.

Finally, dialogue options in Dragon Age: Inquisition will be like Dragon Age 2’s and the Mass Effect series’ dialogue wheel. There will however be “more freedom” when talking to followers, like in Dragon Age: Origins.
