Dragon Age toolset testers wanted

BioWare's next heads into beta.

BioWare's after enthusiastic PC people to test the new Dragon Age: Origins toolset.

Those keen need only register with the BioWare community, put their names down and answer a few easy questions along the way. Access to the toolset should provide a good look at all the monsters, equipment and mission types we can expect from Dragon Age this autumn.

BioWare's not named the Dragon Age toolset, but traditionally spends lots of time and effort developing such software. The Neverwinter Nights community flourished because of the Aurora toolset, resulting in user-built maps, mods and even entire games.

But multiplayer longevity was part of the Neverwinter Nights plan, whereas BioWare has said there will be no co-op nor multiplayer in Dragon Age: Origins.

Also, Dragon Age: Origins, unlike Neverwinter Nights, will launch on PC and consoles simultaneously. BioWare is apparently looking to see if a toolset for console users is "feasible".
