BioWare is working on the next Dragon Age game, and there’s at least one guest writer who will be contributing to its story.

There’s a new Dragon Age game in development at BioWare. Alexis Kennedy, co-creator of indie game Sunless Sea, left the studio he co-founded last year to work as a freelance writer. Since then, he’s contributed to a number of games, but the big news is that he’ll be lending his talents to the next Dragon Age game.

Injustice 2: tier list and base character stats ranked for the full roster

Health, strength, ability and defense. Who is best? We get to ranking them.

Like any good fighting game, Injustice 2 is all about balance. Not even a hefty focus on single-player content, unlockable loot and levelling characters up can dilute or change that, and beyond all the loot box gear unlocks and the like sits a basic fighting game that the developers have sought to balance: those are the base stats for each character.

They always get the treatment you expect from Blizzard, but it takes a while to get one out the door. The last one we got introduced us to Sombra, and that was back in November. Even not counting new heroes like Orisa, many of the game’s main cast have yet to get their own animated shorts.
