As the third entry of the Dragon Age series, Dragon Age: Inquisition continues the story of Corypheus, introduced in the Dragon Age 2 DLC called Legacy, and his ascent to power. In Inquisition, the Inquisitor takes up arms and forms an army to defeat the darkspawn mage before the rifts opening all across Thedas destroy normal life.
Nearly a year after its release, a Game of the Year Edition of Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to release next month on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. On October 6, players can pick up Dragon Age: Inquisition, its three major story-based DLCs, and its other gear-based DLC in one boxed copy or digital download. The availability of the Game of the Year Edition as both physical and digital was confirmed on the Twitter account for the Dragon Age series.
As PCGamer points out, the Game of the Year Edition of Dragon Age: Inquisition will retail for $60; however, international price points have not been confirmed. That price includes, as stated, the three major story-based DLCs for the game; Jaws of Hakkon, The Descent, and Trespasser. Jaws of Hakkon adds a few hours of gameplay as the Inquisitor and friends travel to southern Thedas to find out what happened to a previous Inquisitor while exploring an area filled with Avvar. The Descent sends the protagonist and companions down into the Deep Roads where encounters with darkspawn are guaranteed, and Trespasser occurs after the main story of Dragon Age: Inquisition is completed. This final piece of DLC wraps up the Inquisitor’s story while pitting players against a familiar race of foes.
Additionally, the Game of the Year Edition includes the two Spoils DLCs Spoils of the Avvar and Spoils of the Qunari. These two packs add mounts, Skyhold options, armor for the Inquisitor, and schematics to create more armor for the Inquisitor’s companions. Players that purchase this edition of the game will have access to all of it for the base price of a game.
On the official Dragon Age website, new players can check out even more details on what there is to do and accomplish in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Players will start out by making their own Inquisitor, recruit new companions to aid the Inquisition, and begin their journey to save Thedas. Of course, BioWare emphasizes choice, dragons are a very real threat to the party, and the co-op multiplayer will be there before or after the main campaign is finished.
The Game of the Year announcement comes as no surprise considering BioWare recently stated that there will be no more story-based DLC. As the Inquisitr reported, multiplayer challenges will likely continue for some time, but eventually even those will stop as well. Luckily, the co-op multiplayer element of Dragon Age: Inquisition does not solely rely on the challenges BioWare runs each weekend. Players will still be able to complete matches, earn gold, and buy chests after those events cease.
