Sooo.... I went ahead and purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition. It's currently sitting pre-loaded on my SSD and ready to go on 20 Nov. To be honest, I've been so swamped with uni work that I've had precious little time to follow the news about Inquisition (or to play any games for that matter, apart from Diablo 3 seasons), so I'm going in blind - the headlines look promising though.

 

I'll post my impressions once I log some hours with the game, and maybe we'll see a bit more activity here again as well - it has been "a while" since DA II was released after all. ;)

 

So, it's been a complete shock, but here's what we discovered a day ago: anybody from Poland or Russia can NOT play Dragon Age Inquisition, unless they're happy to play with Polish or Russian text. We can't even buy a copy in English, not even for the double/triple price - it is not available for our region. The only option at this moment seems to download third-party software(VPN), change the IP, and then buy a version in English - again. 

(The funniest thing is, from what the other players report, many regional versions cost just as much as the Russian one, AND they have English text. Sigh).

Huh, that's weird. You'd think they'd know that people use a VPN in those cases, at least based on the posts on the BioWare forums.

No word about the physical Collector's Edition yet... I'm on the fence about buying it. I think I promised myself to stop buying them, and to be honest I haven't bought physical copies of games in a long while now (Far Cry 3), but I do have all the BioWare ones so far. It really needs to be damn good though. I guess I'll wait and see.

DICE made a comment to the effect that Frostbite 2 was too complex to be modded, and didn't release any modding tools for it. Then someone modded it anyway. After that there came some other mods as well.

 

As for Frostbite 3, I've got no idea if EA/DICE will clamp down when it comes to other games besides Battlefield, but I suspect they might, given the progress so far.
