Dragon Age: Origins is to have controls specifically designed for whichever of the game’s three platforms gamers choose to play on, BioWare has told VG247, meaning players should feel as though the title was made for their system.

The fantasy RPG will release simultaneously for PC, 360 and PS3 later this year.

“We’re really lovingly crafting it for all platforms, so it feels like it’s made for your system,” said BioWare boss Ray Muzyka, speaking at GDC.

“It’s got the same depth and accessibility on every system, but the control system is going to be customised, and is being built so it feels like it’s the system it was designed for.

“If you’re playing it on 360 or PS3, you’re going to feel like you’re getting a great, really accessible, rich, story-driven fantasy world, and on the PC you’re going to feel that you have the archetypal fantasy experience of Baldur’s Gate, BioWare-style RPG that fans have come to know and love.

“We want to deliver something that’s going to fit both audiences.”

E3 for this one. Expect EA to push very hard later this year.
