  • News 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...
