Dragon Age: Inquisition

 

BioWare revealed the third Dragon Age game mirrors the third Mass Effect by introducing four-player online multiplayer on top of the single-player experience. Plus the co-op in Dragon Age: Inquisition runs separate to the main RPG campaign, with players ditching their Inquisitor robes to team up in randomly generated mini-dungeons that take around 20 to 30 minutes to complete in total.

There’ll be three multiplayer campaigns at launch, each generating a level made up from 5 of 10 smaller, pre-designed areas. Players will see different areas in different orders, with variables like the types of enemy encounter changing across different sessions. Also, rather than playing as the Inquisitor, you and your buddies are lackeys for the main hero. As Bioware’s Mike Laidlaw told IGN, the studio’s attempted to infuse the mulitplayer heroes with personality: “They’re kind of like mini followers, and they banter among themselves.”

There are twelve unlockable multiplayer heroes available at launch, with three for each class (Warrior, Rogue and Mage). As players progress and earn gold they can unlock new heroes, as well as character skins, equipment, grenades, salves and so on. While there is the option to spend real-life cash to get Platinum, BioWare’s Scylla Costa said it’s an “optional time saver” currency, and that nothing in the multiplayer is behind a paywall. Furthermore, all additional multiplayer DLC will be free.

Dragon Age: Inquisition swoops onto systems on November 18, and PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC completionists can look forward to 150 hours of total content.
