It's early in the morning, so maybe LucasArts and BioWare thought they'd be able to send out a press release that says next to nothing, but we're not having it. The two have announced a partnership that will yield a "ground-breaking interactive entertainment product." No product details have been announced, but the game will be co-developed and co-published by both BioWare and LucasArts, and if we're to believe the press release, it's going to be really good. 

No word on whether this "interactive entertainment product" will come in the form of a videogame, or if it'll be that USB slave Leia Real Doll we've been dreaming about. It's likely a videogame (Knights of the Old Republic MMO?), and you can sign up for updates over at the joint LucasArts/BioWare Web site. You wouldn't want to miss any more press releases announcing any future announcements. 

The full press release is after the jump, and if you think you're going to get any more information out of it, you're sadly mistaken.

LUCASARTS AND BIOWARE CORP. TO CREATE GROUND-BREAKING INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT PRODUCT

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and EDMONTON, CANADA – October 30, 2007 – LucasArts and BioWare Corp. today announced that they have entered into an agreement to create an interactive entertainment product.  The product, details of which will be unveiled at a later date, will be developed and published by BioWare and LucasArts, and will push the boundaries of the gaming market by utilizing the strengths of both companies to deliver an innovative, high-quality experience.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is just as pretty indoors as out

The first part of this walkthrough with creative director Mike Laidlaw managed to get me excited for Inquisition despite not touching previous Dragon Age games. This one, too, looks pretty darn cool, even without bears to freeze. Plus, Dorian's sweet mustache. more
