Mike Laidlaw confirmed the news of a human protagonist for DAIII on Twitter, though he didn’t seem too happy about it. I share his sadness about it, as playing a lovely female Qunari-gone-rogue-warrior would have been a dream come true for me. I’m guessing that the decision was again made for the sake of voiced characters. As I predicted.
Sorry, for those who love elves and dwarves, but long term I’d like to see all four races playable. Future plans!
