Tons of information regarding BioWare’s latest entry in the epic Dragon Age series has gotten me and many others that I’ve talked to excited to jump back into the world of Thedas. What we do know is that Inquisition is a much larger game than its predecessors, with everything from Ferelden, to Orlais, and everything in between up for exploration. Familiar characters will be making a return, Inquisition uses the Frostbite engine, and new monsters and demons to fight is just scratching the surface of what the game will offer.
There was one small, but important bit of info that wasn’t announced until now: the release date! Check out this awesome gameplay trailer showing you some of the game in action and get ready to mark your calendar.
We’re still several months away from actually seeing Inquisition in stores, but now we can take comfort that it is coming out this fall. What we got from the trailer was a bit of the story and the new threat that looms over Thedas – The Breach. Apparently this cataclysmic event tore a hole through The Veil and opened a path to The Fade where demons have begun to cross into Thedas. The resulting tear reduces thousands of soldiers to husks of charred flesh, but you somehow survived. But what I found interesting was what Cassandra said in the beginning: “You walked out of The Fade”. What was he doing in there? And how did he get there in the first place? Such questions however will be answered in due time.
Along with a solid release date, we also have the box art!
Dragon Age: Inquisition is slated to launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC this October.
