I'd like this to be pretty but as long as the story is one worth telling then it should be fine. Interested to see how this one turns out.
I found DA:O amazing in every aspect other than presentation, the sequel was prettier but produced in less than a year and showed weaknesses in the story and very much in design. With #3 we've had at least 3 times as long a production as #2 and a supposedly easy engine to work with, this should mean the story and characters along with the technical side should be at least up to par.
A lot of shoulds I know, I too am very intrigued by it and can only speculate. Let's hope they don't leave the genre that made #1 so compelling though, as 2s combat was the right side of different.
It's all in the game...
