BioWare talks up Dragon Age

"The RPG people have been waiting for."

BioWare has told Eurogamer that its upcoming role-playing game Dragon Age will be what fans have been "wanting forever".

Senior PR manager for the company Matt Atwood restated the promise that it would be out before April 2009, and said more information would be released soon.

"When you make a statement like 'this is the RPG that people have been waiting for', then you better back it up and you better spend a hell of a lot of time on it," Atwood told Eurogamer.

"I think we're going to be extremely proud and our fans are going to be extremely excited. And you'll hear more about it pretty quick."

Dragon Age is said to be a spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate, and first showed its face in 2004 before fairly sharply ducking away from public view.

However, although there were "times with less resources and with more resources", Atwood assures us it has been consistently worked on since then.

So far it has only been linked with PC, but when quizzed about it Atwood didn't rule out the possibility of it popping up on other platforms.

"It is for the PC, but as far as exclusivity we haven't said anything on that," he revealed.

Look out for our full interview with Matt Atwood soon, where he talks about the upcoming PC conversion of Mass Effect and how you will be "extremely captivated immediately" by Mass Effect 2.
