I’m excited about the release of the game, Dragon Age Inquisition. Those who know me, are aware of my love of this dark fantasy RPG franchise, and I’ve posted a few videos from the game in the past. Yes, I’m all caught up in the hype, and love every minute of it. For the record, the games in the Dragon Age franchise are: Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age Origins Awakening, Dragon Age II, and the current game Dragon Age Inquisition. Dragon Age Inquisition comes out next week, and I look forward to eventually playing this game.
What I hoped for, before the game was released was to play the demo of the game. This time there were no demos. For those not in the know, a demo is a sampling of the game. With the last Dragon Age game, Dragon Age II. It gave us a couple of sections of gameplay, and like most demos, it was free, and served to entice players to try the game, and offered some in-game bonus items for playing.
So now, with the new game, there is no demo, which is pro/con, but that’s a done deal. What one can do, according to the Bioware website, if you have an Xbox One is purchase EA Access subscription, and before the game release dates, download a trail version of the game that allows you six hours of gameplay. Isn’t that a demo? Aren’t people now paying for a demo? Perhaps this is the way of the future. Perhaps our anticipation has been measured, and there’s coin to be had for our desire to play. I suppose making a demo exclusive works out somehow.
Like I said before, I will eventually get to play the game, and I’m sure I will be excited about it, and that will be the best aspect of the game itself. To everyone who will get a chance to play, enjoy yourselves. I do think they franchise only got better, and can’t wait to hear tales of how people had fun with the game.
