Some actual gameplay footage has surfaced from over the weekend, and while it may be pre-Alpha, the next Dragon Age instalment is looking mightily impressive.
"The Mass Effect multiplayer stuff was really good, so we've certainly looked at options like that," Cameron Lee told . "But we haven't decided on anything in terms of multiplayer at this point."
"Shooters are really easy to make," he added. "Well, not exactly 'easy' to make as a multiplayer game - but certainly there's a known quantity to what you want to try and create." Mass Effect 3's multiplayer feed into the single player portion of the game, where online users played the role of elite special forces fighting for control of strategic locations.
