Dragon Age: Inquisition team working on story DLC

I think there are some illusions about how game development studios work. As soon as people hear that work is still ongoing for Dragon Age: Inquisition, many will assume that this is taking away from assets that could otherwise be allocated to the new Mass Effect. But fear not, it’s a different team, which is why we can be excited for new content without getting worried about new games.

Over on twitter, Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw explained that they were still busy with the story of Dragon Age: Inquisition.

He goes on to squash the hopes of some – the Hero of Ferelden won’t be showing up – without giving any real details away. Of course we knew that there had to be more story DLC, not just to expand upon aspects at the end of the game, but just to give us some more depths and possibly other playable characters. The Shale DLC of Dragon Age Origins and the Javik DLC for Mass Effect 3 were both incredibly well done and really changed the entire experience for the game. While I normally object to DLC characters, they added so much more to the game that they really were worth the extra cost. There is a lot that Bioware can still do in Thedas and it makes sense that they’re working on some fun new story DLC.

Of course I’m ready for more information on the new Mass Effect, but with the game’s release still a long way away, I’ll make due with a reason to jump back into Dragon Age: Inquisition instead.

      The length of time that has to pass before I buy another EA game?

        The Witcher 3 isn’t a big enough game for that.

          Sjoe…That’s a little drastic, don’t you think? At this rate I’ll probably finish TW3 after the apocalypse…

    They shouldn’t release DLC characters that tie into the main game. That’s really quite shady. As a new character introduced in a new story, sure.

    Picked this game up a week or two ago as it was on special… Can’t say I like it very much. I don’t get what makes folks go nuts over this game. Am I broken?!

    new characters would be cool, but i wouldnt replay the game just for the new characters, not like i did for mass effect.

    Most people are starting to finish The Witcher 3 now and from their impressions the story is fucking amazing. I am sure the devs at Bioware are in awe 🙂

    Also, Level 35 seems to be the average level after completing the game. Some people got to 42. How the hell does one get to level 47? I have schematics for level 42 weapons. I guess the trick is to keep doing levels on par with your own or you do not get EXP if you are 6 levels above.

    I just got to 15 after 60hours, SICK GAME.
