You will be able to choose your race in Dragon Age: Inquisition.
This decision goes back on Bioware's earlier comments that the third game in the series would follow a human protagonist. Now, it seems, you'll be able to choose whether your hero is a human, an elf or a dwarf. It doesn't seem that quanari will be playable, though.
According to the design team, the decision came about because they were able to push the game's release date back, allowing them to spend more time including all the different races.
The game is set to release in Q3 2014.
