Yesterday, BioWare revealed that a four-player cooperative multiplayer mode is coming to Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The multiplayer mode shares similarities with Mass Effect 3’s cooperative experience, however BioWare promises this one to be much deeper.
The game will launch with three multiplayer campaigns, each taking around 20-30 minutes to complete. Fortunately, the level layout for each of these campaigns are randomly generated meaning that each run through will be different.
Nine heroes will be playable at launch: three mage characters, three melee characters, and three archer characters. Each with their own unique weapons and abilities, similar to Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer.
BioWare promises an experience role-playing lovers and loot hoarders will feel at home with. If you are not interested in level grinding players will have the option to purchase Platinum which acts as a “time saver currency”. However, purists will be happy to know that this is completely optional.
BioWare also spoke briefly on multiplayer DLC. Like Mass Effect 3, multiplayer DLC will be free.
After recently being delayed, Dragon Age: Inquisition is expected to release November 18th for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
I think I was one of the few that actually enjoyed Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer and spent a good amount of time with it, so a deeper version of that gets me very excited. However, if Dragon Age: Inquisition does in fact have 200 hours of content I don’t know if I will be spending much time with the multiplayer.
