BioWare have announced Dragon Age: Inquisition will include a four player cooperative mode. This announcement marks the first foray into multiplayer action for the Dragon Age series.
The multiplayer mode will feature cooperative dungeon crawling quests that operate separate from the single player storyline. Aaron Flynn, General Manager of Bioware, believes that this new element will gain from the multiplayer mode found in Mass Effect 3, stating “For Dragon Age: Inquisition, a special team of veteran developers from the Dragon Age and Mass Effect franchises created fun, fast-paced multiplayer gameplay that requires strategic teamwork on top of Inquisition’s party-based combat and extensive loot and crafting system. It was early in the game’s development that we realized how much fun fans of our series were having, with so many players teaming up in Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer mode. We can’t wait to give Dragon Age fans an even bigger and deeper experience.”
The structure of Inquisition’s multiplayer offers similarities to its counterpart from the Mass Effect series, with 4 player cooperation being the core of the gameplay. The player will be able to play and unlock 12 characters from launch of the multiplayer, across the three Inquisition classes found in the game – Legionnaire, Reaver and Mage. Whilst crawling the dungeons the player will also be able to collect loot and salvage items, as well as craft weapons and armour for their characters.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is available on the 21st of November in Europe.
