BioWare Reveals The Lost Fortress Of Adamant

BioWare Reveals The Lost Fortress Of Adamant

BioWare’s upcoming entry in its choice-driven fantasy/RPG series, Dragon Age: Inquisition, is all about managing your forces as a leader. One of those responsibilities involves determining where to send your troops across the realm, and which fortresses to inhabit. Today, BioWare reveals the menacing, abandoned Fortress of Adamant.

The information comes from a journal-style blog post on the Dragon Age website written in the voice of Veldin, a Grey Warden in the world of Thedas. For years, Adamant stood as a symbol of Thedas’ victory in repelling the darkspawn back into the magical rift they attacked from. The fortress, which once hosted powerful Griffons, became difficult to maintain and dangerous as hard times fell on the civilized people of Thedas. The journal entry suggests that should the Order decide to return to the strong, dwarf-built walls, it may be difficult to return to its former glory.

Dragon Age: Inquisition arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 7. For more info on the games, visit our cover story hub filled with exclusive content by clicking the banner below.

Tuning In A Launch Trailer

Tuning In A Launch Trailer

Supergiant Games wowed us with its first title, Bastion (our review), back in 2011. Its storytelling and action felt both familiar and fresh. To say that we’re expecting big things from the studio’s second effort, Transistor, might be an understatement.

In a new launch trailer, we’re given a new look at the antagonists hunting Red. The gameplay is set against “Old Friends,” from the game’s soundtrack (composed by Darren Korb). You’ll also likely recognize the voice of the narrator, Logan Cunningham, who played a big part in making Bastion so memorable.

History Of The Elves Explored In New Screens

History Of The Elves Explored In New Screens

The latest batch of screenshots focuses strongly on the environments players can look forward to when Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on October 7th. In particular, these new screens show off two distinct environments central to the history of the elves in Thedas.

The more lush of the two locations is the Emerald Graves. "The Emerald Graves are a mix of the old elven burial ground and a noble, Orlesian playground," says senior environment artist Andrew Farrell in a post on the Dragon Age: Inquisition website. "You've got the lower section of the forest, which is a bit more civilized with road signs and abandoned Orlesian estates, and then as you get higher up, you come to the ancient elven areas." Elves no longer fill the paths of the forest, which is instead populated by wild beasts like bears, wolves, and other more exotic creatures. The area’s many caves also hide some “gigantic” enemies that might pose a serious threat to the party, particularly if confronted early on in the game.
