Both Dragon Age III: Inquisition and the next Mass Effect game will be powered by DICE’s Frostbite 3 engine, BioWare has said.

“For everyone who’s been asking after the #BF4 reveal, #DA3 and the next Mass Effect are also using Frostbite 3. It’s awesome,” said BioWare Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flynn on Twitter.

The Frostbite 3 engine was announced hand in hand with DICE’s Battlefield 4 reveal at GDC 2013 earlier this week. 17 minutes of Battlefield 4 footage was shown, detailing many of the visual improvements DICE has made to the Frostbite engine since Battlefield 3.

The Frostbite 3 engine does not currently support the Wii U, however. Battlefield executive producer Patrick Bach recently told Eurogamer that “the Wii U is not a part of our focus right now.”

In a blog post back in September 2012, Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah said BioWare was using Frostbite 2 as a “foundation” for development on Dragon Age III.

Both Dragon Age III and Battlefield 4 are due to launch later in 2013.
