Dragon Age II: Rise to Power Trailer Shows the Game’s New Art Style in Motion

27 Oct 2010 | Posted by

As we know, Dragon Age II is being “upgraded” with a new art style, one that takes the game in a slightly different direction. If I’m being honest, and I am the most truthful person that ever lived on this planet anywhere (not the truth), then I would admit that I have not been too keen some of the screenshots I’ve seen up to date.

While some of the initial concept art Bioware showed off was certainly gorgeous, some of the first screenshots just looked bland and lifeless to me. I haven’t necessarily been worried about the game, but that did temper my enthusiasm to some degree.

However, a new all in-engine Dragon Age II trailer is out, and boy does it assuage some of my concerns. The game actually looks much better to me in motion than the first game, which was great but just a bit dated. I know some will disagree with me, though. Give it a watch and share your thoughts and excitement level for the sequel. Come on, you know you want to.

    Oh my GOD that makes me want to finish Origins.
    I have to say that the graphics look impressive. Not that I believe graphics maketh the game but Origins DID look quite… well, shit really. On PS3 anyway. PC, no doubt, had stunning visuals and top performance.

    Looks nice, but like when I played it at PAX, the graphics still are lagging behind. The gameplay felt like a finished product however, so I’m hoping they spend the remaining time making the game look a little better.
