Anybody else think this looks like it could be good? Bioware is behind it! Looks really nice!

I've been waiting for this for years. I don't read the forums often, and there's relatively little other information released on it...

However, Bioware has a history of making awesome games (NWN series excepted), so I'm hoping this game follows through as the spiritual succesor to Baldur's Gate.

Did they use the game engine to render that "cinematics"? Quality looks a bit bad for a cinematic clip, but awful lot of details for a game engine. Maybe it's still pre-rendered though using the game engine.

I'm pretty positive its the game engine, but i can't find any information to confirm or deny it.

Bioware FTW! Looks like a game engine to me.

Looks very interesting. I like the stuff that BiioWare puts out.

I'm not familiar with this title at all. Is this going to be an RPG? Looks interesting whatever it is.

Anyone else here belong to the Bioware Community? Sure seems to be a bunch of discussion (whining) about whether the game will be PC exclusive or not. I don't care. Just let me fill my party with a bunch of hot looking dangerous women in the skimpiest armor that I can buy for them and I'll be happy.



Just hurry up with the game release.
