Dark Horse's blog has recently published a short interview with Dragon Age writer David Gaider, who has penned the upcoming new Dragon Age comic series showcasing some companions you may recognize from the Dragon Age games.

In a recent Wired article, BioWare bigwig Ray Muzyka mentions that Dragon Age 3 may be drawing some inspiration from the open world nature of another dragon-filled smash-hit RPG: Skyrim. As expected, most details are hush hush for now, and there was no peep about the playable dragon multiplayer rumor, but Mike Laidlaw was able to add that, "Follower armor is confirmed, though how that works exactly is for later."
