Dragon Age III: Inquisition will make the leap from BioWare's Eclipse engine to using the Frostbite 2 engine. Frostbite 2 powers games such as Battlefield 3 and Need for Speed: The Run. Neil Thompson of BioWare's really digging the change in the engine and hopes to bring something different to the table.

He talks with OXM about how the artists were disappointed with how Eclipse was, but are really happy with how Frostbite 2 delivers on their vision. They are going with a different color palette than the darker colors and browns that seem prominent in a lot of RPGs. BioWare's sounds like it's hoping to really deliver a unique visual experience and they have a pretty good engine to do so in Frostbite 2.
