EA and Bioware have been hard at work, pumping out enough Dragon Age to keep fans satisfied for the past few years with Dragon Age: Origins, it's sequel and a host of DLC for both titles. It's not that big a surprise then that EA has just announced Dragon Age III: Inquisition.'

Created by EA and Bioware, the third installment into the series is currently scarce on details but promises to pay more attention to the cry of the fans with 'a great story with choices that matter, a massive world to explore, deep customization and combat that is both tactical and visceral'. Sounds good to me!
