Several gamers on BioWare's social forum are reporting that they recently took a survey for Dragon Age III. So what about possible names?
According to the rumoured survey, those taking the survey were supposed to select their favourite title from these choices:
• Dragon Age 3: The Breach • Dragon Age 3: Exarch • Dragon Age 3: Inquisition • Dragon Age 3: Inquisitor • Dragon Age 3: Apocrypha
The game's plot, as Strategy Informer points out, seems to centre around a civil war in the French-style location of Orlais. All of Thedas continent is tossed into chaos, and magical forces have taken out the Chantry's holy council leadership. Here's more that was apparently in the survey:
A portal between the worlds unleashes hords [SIC] of demons in the land, civil wars rip apart nations and the corruption is limitless. Someone is behind the shadows, drawing the threads which destroy the world. Time has come for the Inquisition.
Take the Inquisitor's cloak and lead the only force able of bringing light into the darkness. Choose the direct method and gather your armies, send spies into the shadows or engage in a political war, make friends and use your connections indirectly: it is up to you how you lead the inquisition. But you'll have to take lead of it from the beginning. Make your player a rogue, warrior or mage and set up your crew from up to 10 (!) complex companions to lead them against those who attack you by systematically spying on, revealing and destroying them.
Art that was allegedly included in the survey seems to resemble the concept art of Matt Rhodes, who does Dragon Age design work for EA.
As popular forum NeoGAF pointed out, Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw quipped on Twitter, "I think it's kind of grainy, but the text is nicely justified with good paragraph weighting. 2.5/5 for presentation."
Kotaku is following up with EA and will update this post should the company comment.
Update: The logo at the top, which was not included in the survey, seems to be fan-made.
