DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION Gameplay Trailer - The Inquisitor

Electronic Arts and BioWare announced on Tuesday that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be available in stores and to download on October 7 in North America, and on October 10 in Europe. The game will be available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and Windows PC via EA's Origin store.

"Our goal with Dragon Age: Inquisition is to usher in the next generation of role playing games," said Aaryn Flynn, General Manager of BioWare Edmonton and Montreal. "Players will experience the rich storylines and characters that they've come to expect from BioWare, in an expansive world with large open environments just begging to be explored."

For PC gamers wanting to get their hands on the $69.99 Digital Deluxe edition, this bundle will include the Skyhold Throne that's fashioned from an ancient dragon skull, a great-horned beast called the Red Hart Halla, a Bog Unicorn, and the Dragon Age: Inquisition soundtrack.

The Digital Deluxe Edition will also include the mighty Flames of the Inquisition gear. This collection includes multi-class weapons, armor and a mount, which is a valiant steed that has its own set of Inquisition Armor "forged from the flames of battle." Bonus digital content will be announced in the future.

"In Dragon Age: Inquisition, the expansive, beautiful world of Thedas is being torn apart by a massive, mysterious breach in the sky. Players must assume the role of the Inquisitor and lead a team of legendary heroes to uncover the truth behind the impending devastation," reads the game's description.

Electronic Arts also plans to release an Inquisitor's Edition to purchase, so stay tuned for more info on that. Meanwhile, here's a batch of new screenshots and a gameplay video. Are you ready for the next Dragon Age chapter? Pre-order your copy today!

    If i knew for a fact that this game isnt a direct port from console to pc, limiting it to console graphics and features, id buy it now! I just hope that the pc user can take advantage of new hardware/sofware like amd's mantle and boost this game to how a pc should play games (not be limited to console play style, graphics & features)

    Teddiebear - have you not seen any of the other released videos for this game? They're all built on Frostbite 3, which is designed with PC in mind. Bioware has been more mindful of their PC crowd than most developers. It may even support Mantle since it is using Frostbite but there is no confirmation of that yet.

    Go watch the videos. I think you will find you have nothing to worry about and should definitely pick it up :)

    Since it's made with Frostbite it may have Mantle support.

    My only question is if this is going to be Origin exclusive or will it also be on Steam. If it is Origin exclusive I will probably pass it up. I have three games on Origin, two I got for free and one I bought well before it Origin came out (Spore). Juts not a fan of the application itself.

    It depends on if it is using the version of the engine that has it enabled or if the developer even decided to enable it themselves.

    Some of the characters revealed so far are from DA2, so I'm kinda worried. Also, I'm not Catholic so can't really appreciate the subtitle. Graphics look nice for an RPG though.

    "Next generation of RPG"... Still released for 360/PS3. No thanks, I'll wait for The Witcher 3 with the added bonus of supporting a decent developer like CDProjektRED instead of EA.

    "Players will experience the rich storylines and characters that they've come to expect from BioWare" What the heck!? So it will be a pile of complete s*** like dragon age 2!?

    1:17 "Get Over here".

    Considering the DA2 Fiasco, Im gonna let this one stay cold untill I can see gameplay on youtube or something similar. Then ill decide if there is a point in spending my cash on the company that killed Mass effect with the worst ending ever and blew up DA Origins with a sequel that had nothing interesting.
