On its website, Failbetter describes the game:
“In Dragon Age: The Last Court, you are the ruler of Serault: an eccentric fiefdom at the farthest ends of Orlais. As the Huntress or the Scholar you’ll guide your realm through the most crucial period in its history. Will its ancient Shame be forgiven? Or will Serault fall into obscurity?”
The game will ask you to manage the affairs of your court, from appointing counsellors, to finding accomplices and lovers. You’ll be expected to make choices that will directly impact your subjects as you handle any threats to your land. Other characters will join you, some of whom you may recognize from previous Dragon Age installments.
As in other Dragon Age games, story seems to be at the forefront of this adventure, as you discover who is behind Serault’s recent difficulties, and uncover what rests within the Sealed Chantry.
As part of Dragon Age Keep, The Last Court will be free. Failbetter promises they’ll “be shouting about it the moment it’s live,” so remain vigilant during these coming weeks.
Dragon Age Keep recently went into open beta. Dragon Age: Inquisition launches November 18th in North America, November 20th in Australia, and November 21st in Europe. It will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
As Dragon Age: Inquisition’s November 18th release approaches, my excitement for it only grows stronger. Dragon Age: The Last Court feels like a game that could counteract my impatient nature, and give me the opportunity to dive back into Thedas a little earlier than expected. Maybe we’ll even get some sweet, cross-game unlockable items. I can hardly wait to get my hands on all of that new loot!
