Bioware: Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo Recap

The first annual Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo is in the books, and we were so excited to be a part of it! As we take a few moments to consume nearly toxic levels of caffeine and refill our bottles of hand sanitizer, we thought it would be a good opportunity to provide a recap for those that were unable to attend the expo in person.

Fans in attendance during the Dragon Age panel were treated to the unveiling of Dragon Age III: Inquisition concept art. This was the first time anyone outside of BioWare had been given a chance to see it! The Dragon Age team was thrilled by the reaction of the crowd, and so very appreciative of the support. In case you missed our posting over the weekend, you can see those concept art images for yourself right here. Inquisition will be the first Bioware game to run on the Frostbite 2 Engine.

The event concluded with our biggest panel of the show: The Mass Effect Universe. When surveyed, the crowd told us that they wanted more time for Q&A, so the panelists cut their presentation down to accommodate. The panel members were asked so many great questions that they all stuck around an extra fifteen minutes to answer as many as they could! Thanks to the live-tweeting work @Caneron_Lee you can access all the info and commentary from the event.

Of course, capturing all the excitement of a con in words is difficult, so we’re happy to report that the panels were all recorded, and that we’ll be posting them on YouTube very soon for you to watch. Be sure to tell us what you liked, and give us your suggestions for next year.

Dragon Age 3 is planned to launch in late  2013.
