Did you find Dragon Age: Origins a tad on the easy side? Well, if you’re looking for a more challenging game in Dragon Age: Inquisition, then you’re in luck.

In our exclusive interview with BioWare Producer Cameron Lee, we asked whether players have the option of going through Inquisition without going into the RPG’s tactical view or if it’s necessary.

It’s not necessary. It really depends on individual players, I know. This is quite a complex answer, but when you look at…. Say you were playing on normal difficulty, and all difficulty in Inquisition means tougher than Origins, definitely tougher than Dragon Age 2. So, each different player has different thresholds of how much pressure they can handle separately. So, the way we look at the tactical view – it’s almost like a pressure release valve. So, if you’re in real-time view and you’re battling away, and there’s just too much going on, you know, there’s too many enemies or they’re too tough or something’s gone wrong, maybe, as you were fighting, a pack of wolves came along at the same time and decided to get involved in this three way fight. You could, that could be too much pressure for me, so I might want to go to the tactical cameras, but for you, you might be quite comfortable to keep banging away in real time. It really depends on the player, but we would expect from the majority of players playing on normal mode.. that they would definitely find some of the more challenging fights easier if they use tactical combat – tactical view. But if they want to persevere, they can certainly do so.

In another part of the interview, Lee mentioned that the AI for your party in Inquisition is “pretty intelligent.” For the rest of the chat, make sure you check back here on PlayStation LifeStyle next week,

Is this good news for you or is it to be expected given how relatively easy Dragon Age 2 to finish?
