Dragon Age is an upcoming RPG for the PC currently under development by Canadian powerhouse BioWare (KOTOR, Bioshock, Neverwinter Nights, Mass Effect). Bioware is currently in the process of determining a publisher . The release date has not been set.
Dragon Age is set in a new darker fantasy setting as opposed to the traditional Dungeons and Dragons setting. It will utilize an engine developed specifically for the game called Eclipse .
BioWare is calling this the "Spiritual Sucessor to Baldur's Gate" a similar quote was attributed to BioShock being a spiritual successor to the early action rpg System Shock and its sequel [2,3]. The game play will be 3D third person with free camera control, but may switch to a tactical overhead map during combat. All characters will be able to be controlled by the player, both in real time or when the game is paused . Characters will be fully customizable as will backround (similar to the system used in Mass Effect). Both character race and backround will have play a large factor in determining starting location and in game play . There will be no alignment scale as seen in previous games although decisions will affect relationships as well as major world events [1,4].
With the recent major sucess of other BioWare games, Dragon Age seems a likely hit within the Role Playing Community.
