Dragon Age 3 Inquisition

BioWare officially announced Dragon Age III: Inquisition today in a post on the BioWare website by Executive Producer Mark Darrah. Darrah said that BioWare has been “working on it in some way for about two years now with the bulk of [their] efforts ramping up about 18 months ago.”

The announcement doesn’t come as much of a shock as many gamers assumed BioWare was already working on the next game the series, especially after rumors about the third title surfaced last month. Surprise announcement or not, actual details about the project are scarce.

Frank Gibeau, President of EA labels

On Bloomberg today, President of EA labels Frank Gibeau says that the company is planning on “three to five new IPs” for the next generation of consoles “within the first twenty-four months” after their release. He also says that EA expects the new consoles “in about a year’s time.” This revelation comes after Microsoft and Sony have stayed notoriously tight-lipped about the consoles that everybody and their brother expects are in the works.

Gibeau also commented on EA’s “missteps” at the start of this console generation. However, by coming out and saying they’re working on new games and IPs, it looks like EA hopes to avoid the same mistakes. Gibeau says that this is “a big investment” for the company because they’re going to go after this “transition in a big way.”

There have been rumblings of Crysis 3, but never anything concrete — now EA is willing to reveal the next title in the FPS series, along with something fairly new — a bow-ready hero. The game will take place in New York, as the hero “Prophet” finds the city completely encased in “The Liberty Dome” — and just like Katniss, Prophet will have to traverse deep jungle locales with his trusty bow.

Crysis 3 will hit in Spring 2013., and you can pre-order it now on Origin and elsewhere for a few nominal bonuses, such as an XP bonus up to level 5 in multiplayer.  It’s not even out yet, and the game is already the “premier sandbox shooter experience of 2013″ — EA is the Dumbledore  of marketing.

Mass Effect 3

Well, the space cat’s out of the bag now. A listing for a piece of Mass Effect 3 DLC was spotted today on the Xbox Live Marketplace. It’s already been pulled down, but the listing revealed the title “From Ashes” and the fact that it will cost 800 MS Moon Dollars, also known as Microsoft Points, when it comes out.

The description also listed some spoilers, but the vanilla version of it is we’ll “unearth lost secrets from the past” in the add-on. Some people believe that “From Ashes” will be included as free content for consumers who purchase the game new. EA and BioWare did something similar with Mass Effect 2 and the Zaeed character. IGN has a more spoiler-heavy write-up of what’s known so far about “From Ashes.”

While attention has shifted from gamescom to PAX Prime without us even thinking about it, there is a summit that will fly mostly under the radar this year — Cloud Gaming USA. Just after we’ve gone home with our swag bags and hangovers, this event will take place in San Jose, Calif. September 7 – 8.

Industry professionals will fill a conference hall adjacent to Silicon Valley in efforts to shape the future of how we play games. Most likely, the future won’t look like the above picture. Albeit, a look at the attendees may provide insight as to why we should pay attention.

The final thing I did before the Los Angeles Convention Center closed its doors and the ESA bid us adieu (until next year) was see EA’s latest installment in its extreme snowboarding franchise. Gamer Limit was whisked into a small dark room with a small group, sat down on a benches (made of snowboards!) for a look at the newest Snowboard Super Cross title.

Little did I know it at the time, but SSX was about to become my most anticipated title of 2012. Hit the jump to find out why.
