A Dragon Age II: Console or PC article on IGN
discusses the differences between the Windows and console editions of Dragon Age II
, BioWare's upcoming action/RPG sequel. They describe improvements to the appearance of the Xbox 360 edition, new limitations on the camera in the Windows edition, and conclude with this: "As might be expected, the game looks better on a nice PC than on consoles. The art style, which I was extremely skeptical of after seeing the initial screenshots, is an improvement over Origins. Everything from the armor sets to the animations and environments have been improved, making for a world that looks and feels more natural. It seems as though BioWare is taking Origins, which was super nerdy and very specifically targeted players like me, and giving it a graphical facelift so it can appeal to a wider crowd. You know, the crowd that doesn't know what a Gate spell is and isn't instantly apprehensive when someone mentions a Beholder. Here's hoping the final version doesn't lose anything in the transition. At the very least, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners should be getting a smoother and ultimately more playable product." There's also a new Dragon Age II official Champion trailer
