I was quite surprised that this hasn't had any coverage I could find here, and neither has it had a topic, so here we go:

Bioware-developed, PC RPG, due for release in early 2009. Seems to be a blend of Neverwinter Nights, KotoR/Jade Empire/Mass Effect and WoW, but, judging by the screenies GameSpot put up on their preview, there also appears to be some degree of strategy involved in the combat.

Anyways, it has me intrigued, and I thought I'd share!

Is it still a rumor or is it fact that the game is coming to consoles in Q4 2009? Only way I'm playing this game, because I'm not shelling out thousands for a new computer.

Anyways, based on the previews, looks like it'll be an awesome game.

Gamespot have it listed for 360 and PS3 as well, but no release date. And the only difference between the PS3/360 pages compared to the PC version is the colouring.

I mean, literally the only difference is the colouring. The previews on the 360/PS3 blurb still start with "Dragon Age: Origins is a PC role-playing game that will be based on a brand-new fantasy world"... :P

copy/paste FTW!!!

Are they going back to turn based battles? I hated Mass Effect's FPS-ish combat.

It's real-time with pause, like BG and KOTOR.

Crap. It's been delayed from a Spring release to 'the last half of 2009', now a simultaneous release on the three platforms. Presumably this is EA's doing because they don't want to market it separately from the console ports.

Possible, but at the same time this has already been in development for forever and it's not something uncommon with Bioware games. If it IS the case though then I hope they at least spend the next several months fine tuning the game, normally I wouldn't mind delays but after my PC upgrade I was hoping to have this sooner than later.

I also remember reading somewhere (although now that I'm looking for the articles I can't find them) that the console versions would have altered/exclusive/extra content of some sort, so maybe this will allow them to make all three versions the same (i.e. the PC version much superior).

The game is supposed to pull from a number of their games stylisticly, but spiritually Bioware has said it's supposed to be the successor to the Baldur's Gate series...which has me very excited.  Limiting the group to 4 members limits the strategy a bit, but everything else they've released info-wise suggests this'll become my new favorite game.

After reading the (relatively) new webpage, I wouldn't be surprised if they have plans in the pipeline for an MMO based in this world.

NWN was supposed to be the spiritual successor of BG2. Heck, in the tips BG2 gives you during loadings it tells you you'll be able to export your characters to NWN. That wasn't true D:

Really? From when they first revealed NWN it was seemed pretty clear to me that it was focused on the toolset and multiplayer. I think any plan that Bioware had to import characters into NWN was shelved with Throne of Bhaal and then the move to 3rd edition D&D.

My most anticipated sword & sorcery game in quite some time. Always loved Bioware's choice/moral system.

The more I read about it the more interested I am. I really like how the personality of your party members has an effect on the outcome of the events. You might actually not get along with some of them. They can leave the party or even turn against you.

Here's a detailed preview:

Yeah, Bioware has done that before and it's always been awesome. I definitely have high hopes for the choice portion of this game too.

Wow, I might be looking at the same kind of fun I haven't had since Baldurs Gate (Where your party was a intresting because of their conflicting views).

IGN is right, this really does remind one of Baldurs Gate.
