More Dragon Age: Inquisition screenshots have been dug up, and they feature the mountains of the Dales, better known as home of the elves. Where do you think the Dalish got their name? Anyway, the images don't show the lush forests one might expect when thinking about the Dales of Thedas. Rather, these are the unforgiving highlands, blanketed in snow; welcome to the Empire Du Lion.
The Dales were the second homeland of Thedan elves, for those unawares, and Dragon Age: Inquisition promises to explore more of it. For anyone who skipped the first Dragon Age or simply didn't pay attention to any of the lore, the elves were attacked and victimized throughout history by human empires, despite being far more ancient. Theirs is not a pleasant history to explore.
Here, have a dragon.
Bear in mind these screenshots were not released through official channels, but you can see the rest of the leaked images below. Dragon Age: Inquisition will be released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4 later this year.
