Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition (PlayStation 4)

Dragon Age: Inquisition (PlayStation 4)

Everybody expects the Inquisition

BioWare has had to endure a rocky road of late. Mass Effect 3 didn't sit well with everyone, and although there was a decent game at its core, Dragon Age II missed the mark almost entirely when it came to being a worthy successor to the great Dragon Age: Origins. As a result, a lot rests on Dragon Age: Inquisition's...

Miss the BioWare Roundtable? Here Are All the New Details on Mass Effect PS4

Sounds massive

The BioWare N7 day roundtable stream is now over, and although we basically sat through half an hour of developers rattling off their favourite Mass Effect moments for the sake of seeing several pieces of brand new concept art, we did actually manage to nab some new info regarding the next title in the series. For starters, new...

Hype effect

It's N7 day, and that means a load of Mass Effect related news — even if it's just very slight confirmation that a remake of the original trilogy is heading to the PlayStation 4. But what about the franchise as a whole? Well, BioWare has once again got you covered with yet another livestream from their official Twitch.tv channel...

Forged in the fires of friendship

It certainly hasn't received the same sort of backlash that Mass Effect 3 got when it was announced that Commander Shepard's final chapter would sport its own co-op component, but perhaps that's led to Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer offering flying a little under the radar. Indeed, much like the sci-fi...

Still Not Sure About Dragon Age: Inquisition? Make a Choice With This New Trailer

Right and wrong

As a studio, BioWare has always prided itself on interactive storytelling, and although many will argue that the Canadian developer has disappointed with its most recent releases, interesting narrative design remains a core aspect of the company's identity. It comes as no surprise, then, that the studio has saw fit to release a...

Dragon Age: Inquisition's Producer Reckons Skyrim Changed the RPG Genre Completely

The sons of Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may be several years old now, but it still holds enough sway to spark conversation around the 'net. Bethesda's open world RPG was a massive success, and speaking to Gamesindustry.biz, Dragon Age: Inquisition's executive producer Mark Darrah cites the fantasy adventure's popularity as a turning point for...

We're only a month away from the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it seems like developer BioWare is starting to go all out with promotional material for its open world RPG. After hosting an interesting live stream that featured the game's character creation system, the Canadian studio's gifted us with a new trailer...

Phew, Dragon Age: Inquisition's Multiplayer Will Not Affect the Single Player Story

Thank the Maker

We remember the negative commotion that surrounded Mass Effect 3's co-op mode all too well, and so we were a little worried about whether or not Dragon Age: Inquisition's newly announced multiplayer would have any effect on the single player story, if only so we didn't have to wade through countless hate-filled forum posts...

Here's Dragon Age: Inquisition's Inevitable Co-Op Trailer

One for all

Any fan of Dragon Age: Origin's deadly rogue Leliana will no doubt be excited to hear her ask for your help in Dragon Age: Inquisition's freshly announced co-op mode, so we suppose that's a pretty effective way to begin this multiplayer focused trailer. It's not a long one, only clocking in at about a minute and a half, but we do get a...

Mass effective

It's something that's been in the rumour mill for some time now, but it's finally been confirmed that upcoming fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition is getting its very own co-op mode that's separate from the gigantic single player story. The news comes from IGN, which got to talk to developer BioWare about the game's intriguing...

Dragon Age: Extinction

We hope that there are enough dragons roaming the wilderness in Dragon Age: Inquisition, because we think that you'll be killing plenty of them if you're to spend over 200 hours with the upcoming RPG. Speaking with IGN, producer Cameron Lee reckons that "a completist playthrough takes more than 200 hours," which no doubt...

Dragon Age: Inquisition Looks Remarkably Pretty in These New Trailers

Nobody expects the Dragon Age: Inquisition

EA started its fairly lousy Gamescom conference this morning with a lengthy demo of incoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition. Some fairly juicy details were also dropped, including the news that the game features nine classes, with more than 20 specialisations, as well as over 200 weapons and spells, and all...

Hero's favourite public forum at Comic-Con 2014

Hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 follow-up Mass Effect 4 is in a weird sort of promotional limbo right now, strangely nestling somewhere between announced and unannounced. We know that the game exists, for example, but we don’t really know a whole lot about it – and that makes its inclusion in the...

Earlier this week, developer BioWare threw 16 minutes of Dragon Age: Inquisition footage online. The gameplay demo was originally shown behind closed doors at E3, and now the second part of this lengthy look at the upcoming RPG has been posted for all to see.

Hot stuff

Upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition had a rather tame showing at EA's E3 press conference last month. Alongside cringe inducing dialogue from the on-stage GM Aaryn Flynn, the game didn't get the big gameplay blowout that many expected, probably due to the publisher's strict time table. Thankfully, the...
