Dragon Age Inquisition PC video

Dragon Age Inquisition PC video

While Miguel is preparing a good number of videos of the PC version of Dragon Age: Inquisition, we felt we could use our fiber connection to propose a quick extract running at 1080p/60fps. This video was captured thanks to our new capture PC with most graphical options set to ultra (except for tesselation, which we safely lowered at high only). During the first part, you'll see MSAA2x in action while the last part set in the open environment we showed in our GSY Live forced us to deactivate MSAA and only use post-processing antialiasing. Note that in-game cutscenes are oddly choppy and unfortunately capped at 30 fps.


Rig we used to play the game: i5 4670K @ 4.0 GHz, 8 Go RAM, Windows 8.1 64, Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 Gigabyte OC.

First of all, thanks for the video!
And second, you can use the Frostbite 3 engine's universal framerate lock fix for allowing 60fps for the cutscenes in Dragon Age: Inquisition (details and links below):

High frame rate - Increase cutscene FPS from 30 to 60:

1. Right click Dragon Age Inquisition icon in the Origin game library.
2. Select game properties, and apply the following line in the dialogue box.
3. Add "-GameTime.MaxSimFps 60" and "-GameTime.ForceSimRate 60+" without quotation marks.

Notes: Use this when playing single player, and after a character is already created. There can be some minor issues running this - the only issue is that cutscenes still retain a little choppiness, but are much more smoother than before.

The original modder's Youtube video and Reddit thread links are below - please note that the Youtube video nas no spoilers, it only shows Origin and the user's desktop.

PS. Any chance you guys can reach out to EA/BioWare and ask for the other 3 CG trailers of Dragon Age: Inquisition in high quality - they are of Vivienne, Iron Bull and Varric? Thanks in advance.

Is there going to be a demo for this? Preferably on PC but PS4 would do, I love RPGs such as Skyrim/Witcher but I don't like RPGs that are overly filled with magic, I like to be able to complete them using sword/archery but not magic.

From what I've played on my PS4 copy, you don't have to use magic. You can be a sword and axe person if you want. I can't assume what your opinion is on the worlds enemies, but some of them do use a ton of magic against you.

The pc version clearly looks better, but that should be no surprise. I wish it had skill based combat. I'm not sure that I like the combat system well enough to buy the game.

I like how you think!

I quite like the combat and how it feels. While the combat system isn't as skills reliant as a Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden, it is by far much more tactical and requires constant observation and careful thinking on the higher difficulties.

I'm playing at Nightmare difficulty, hardest difficulty, and for example, in the very first boss fight I was whooping the boss quite easily, but in a moment of "carelessness" I lost the fight, was about 2-3 seconds.

So you need to constantly be at your best, even in smallr fights. And that requires a level of skill - like most things if you want to be good at.

    Moonwalker BF1 is fantastic. Loving the setting and the audio as always is superb. Graphically I am very impressed, clear improvement over the beta and not a jaggy to be seen. Whereas in 4 and Battlefront there (44 minutes ago)
