Dragon Age: Inquisition Drops The ‘3’ To Achieve A “Non-Linear Narrative”

Share And Comment

Dragon Age: Inquisition has ditched the number “3” from its title as was shown during EA’s E3 2013 press conference but EA Labels President Frank Gibeau has said that it is “tactical marketing decision” and nothing else. The word ‘Inquisition’ apparently needs to stand out more than a number ever could, as that is what the story in Dragon Age is all about according to Gibeau.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

A dragon! I bet you didn’t expect to see one of those in this game…

Speaking in an interview with IGN, Gibeau said:

“There wasn’t anything that strategic about it, to be blunt. We just wanted to draw more attention to the fact that Inquisition is an all-new chapter inside of the Dragon Age universe, as opposed to people expecting a follow-on to Dragon Age 1 and 2 in a literal, linear sense.”

He went on the specifically to talk about the link between the Dragon Age story and the word ‘Inquisition’:

“There’s a whole bunch of gameplay and features and big story choices related to how you go through this Inquisition that happens in the world.”

Are you looking forward to Dragon Age: Inquisition? Does the lack of a number really change how you view the game or is largely irrelevant to you? Please tell us what you think in the comments below.

I'm a big gaming fan who has been playing games since ever since Pokemon Yellow was released in the year 2000. I'm just glad that there are decent rugby games on the PS3 now after years of nothing. I need another Uncharted game...NOW!!!!!
