I have some good news for those of you who like to play as female character. Mark Darrah, the executive producer of Dragon Age III: Inquisition said that the female character will be used in the upcoming game. We don't know however if Lady Inquisitor will be featured on the cover, or in trailers and pictures only.
Remotedly associated question: will the default/cover character be a woman this time?
We will have a female character and a male one that we use in marketing. As to the box, we haven't decided what's on it yet. - Mark Darrah
What do you think, will Bioware let us choose again how the female character should look like?
