Dragon Age: Inquisition team wants to “see how people respond” to Kinect, other tech before implementation

Dragon Age: Inquisition producer Cameron Lee has said Bioware is looking into added game tech such as SmartGlass, Kinect, and Move, but not to expect any of those to be implemented into the series just yet.

Speaking in the latest issue of OXM, Lee said the team has looked into the tech, but wants to see how other developers implement it and how the public reacts to it first.

“We’ve looked at it, the SmartGlass stuff, Kinect, PS4’s Move and all that,” Lee said. “One of the advantages of shipping a year after everyone else is that we get to see how everybody responds to these things, during the new generation.

“We want to take the time to look at how they work, and how players react. Because it may not be what players want, it may not be a good experience. We have the luxury of time, to see how people respond and craft something where if we want to do that, it’s the right thing to do.

“It was an interesting experience with Kinect on Mass Effect, and we’ve got a lot of the telemetry from Mass Effect 3 about how players used it, so we’ve certainly investigated quite deeply the difference between options.”

Dragon Age: Inquisition is out in fall 2014 on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
