One juicy detail about the game was that "one level in Dragon Age 3 is as big as all of the levels in Dragon Age 2," according to cinematic designer Jon Perry.
Creative director Mike Laidlaw announced "customization is going to be bigger than Dragon Age Origins," with a brand-new "follower customization," according to producer Cameron Lee.
The one restriction on character customization would be that the main character must be human. While players will be able to create extensive backgrounds about their character, and that it will have a "significant impact on the story."
Executive producer Mark Darrah tweeted, that players will have their own castle to control, and most importantly, prior character choices will be importable to Dragon Age III, though the developers are "investigating some ways without save imports."
