Developer BioWare has revealed that the firm will be returning to its hit role-playing video game franchise with Dragon Age III: Inquisition.

There is not a huge amount of information on the ins and outs of the game, but it has been confirmed that it will use a customised version of Battlefield 3's Frostbite 2 graphics engine.

Mark Darrah, the game's executive producer, announced the title on the BioWare blog, explaining that the firm has been working on it for around two years.

"I am pleased to confirm that we are, in fact, working on the next Dragon Age game. Not a big surprise to most of you, I know. We have been working on it in some way for about two years now with the bulk of our efforts ramping up about 18 months ago," he said.

The firm has been scouring the internet to get feedback on the previous Dragon Age games and their extra downloadable content, reading reviews, visiting message boards and even having face to face discussions with fans.

"Recently, I said that we didn´t want to talk about Dragon Age III unless we had something to show. I´m trying to stick to that plan and won´t be revealing much today," he added.

He has said the title does make a reference to what the story is likely to be about, but has revealed nothing else about the plot. He also confirmed it is the same team of developers working on Inquisition who have been making the Dragon Age games since Origins, alongside a lot of talented new developers.

Darrah also makes some vague references to the inclusion of a more "expansive world, better visuals, more reactivity to player choices, and more customisation".

There has, however, been nothing confirmed in the way of formats, which could mean they intend to release it on Xbox720 and PlayStation 4, as at least one of the two is supposed to be released by the end of 2013.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801453116-ADNFCR
