    Strange that they aren't numbering it, same with the next Mass Effect, just "the next".

    Don't screw it up....

    I will beat DA:I after I get the next DA maybe... Single player or bust, they can also bring back the original combat

    This sounds encouraging, but if they have already spent a lot of time developing the game with MP in mind, how good is it going to be now? I doubt they will scrap the whole thing and build it again as SP game. They will likely remove the forced MP parts that they could have monetized. DA:I already played as an offline MMO. Overall seems like another Anthem from them, but naturally that's just speculation and we will have to see more.

    I disagree that DA:I was an offline MMO... it clearly was made as a SP roleplaying experience. You could argue the combat was MMO-like, but that's about it.

    If the "MP" likeness of the new dragon age is just limited that of DA:I, then i am totally fine with it... but there are lots of games that actually plays like offline MMO's these days (like anthem, as you mentioned), and i wont be interested in it if that's the case... which i fear it might very well be. Though i hope not, cause i really really like dragon age.

    I had absolutely no idea Inquisition had multiplayer... I watched some gameplay for it and was like... ohh that's why when I saw it had a "Store" in the game.... then I was like I bet you they are selling "currency" to use in the game on Origin... and shock horror... EA will EA...

    Dragon Age is a singleplayer video game series, why they were even trying to insert multiplayer into it is beyond me.... but then again I already know why. EA.

    Combat was fine, the world felt very much like an MMO. You had huge, mostly empty, areas and a lot of very generic side quests, like kill x enemies here or there. It was still an OK experience, although I must admit I don't even remember the story very much, but immersion wise it was quite a lot worse for me than the first DA: Origins. That's despite Origins having isometric camera and comparatively clunky combat.

    What I'm afraid of, is that due to MP considerations, there would be similar world built for MP experience with a lot of generic quests, locations and rewards. But I guess we will see.

    I really disagree - i think the world was amazingly done. Really a strong point for DA:I... loved exploring it.

    That said, i agree that it would be really sad if the coming DA was completely generic in a sorta WoW style.

    I made a biggest mistake by playing the second game first and it was an absolute garbage putting me off from any other game in the series.

    Origin is a classic. I do not expect the next to be close to it, but would like to see them moving back to the model of it.

    Quality rpg's are far and few sadly.
