Creative Director Mike Laidlaw, executive producer Mark Darrah, Art Director Matt Goldman and Writer David Gaider were all at PAX and sitting on a discussion panel. Dragon Age III would feature an all-out brawl between the Templar and the Mages.
The player character, whoever that ends up being, will be travelling Thedas to gather allies and attempt to put an end to the conflict. The studio affirmed that an MMO is not part of their plans to further expand the BioWare created IP franchise.
