Dragon Age: Inquisition will be a much tougher game to play than Dragon Age: Origins.
In an interview with PlaystationLifestyle, BioWare producer Cameron Lee noted that while Inquisition is set to be tougher, it might not be so depending on the individual.
“Say you were playing on normal difficulty, and all difficulty in Inquisition means tougher than Origins, definitely tougher than Dragon Age 2,” said Cameron.
“So, each different player has different thresholds of how much pressure they can handle separately.”
Luckily, Inquisition has tactical view, which acts like a “pressure release valve” to help players cope with the game.
“So, if you’re in real-time view and you’re battling away, and there’s just too much going on, you know, there’s too many enemies or they’re too tough or something’s gone wrong, maybe, as you were fighting, a pack of wolves came along at the same time and decided to get involved in this three way fight.
“You could, that could be too much pressure for me, so I might want to go to the tactical cameras, but for you, you might be quite comfortable to keep banging away in real time.
“It really depends on the player, but we would expect from the majority of players playing on normal mode.. that they would definitely find some of the more challenging fights easier if they use tactical combat – tactical view.
Lee added that players are perfectly capable of persevering in normal combat mode if they wish to.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is set for release November 18 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
EA Access subscribers can get early access to the game on Xbox One.
