New Dragon Age: Inquisition Arrives in October

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!
