BioWare: 40 “Meaningfully Different” Endings in DA: Inquisition
Multiple endings have become fairly common in games, but try this on for size: BioWare says there will be a whopping 40 different endings in Dragon Age: Inquisition, and they’ll all be “meaningfully different.”
How’s that for a juxtaposition to Destruction, Control and Synthesis?
The news comes from a preview in the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine (shared by NeoGaf). OXM interviewed Executive Producer Mark Darrah, who promised, “You won’t find 40 endings with only slight degrees of variation between them.”
Lots more new info on Dragon Age: Inquisition in the preview, including:
- There will be five regions to explore: Fereladan, the Free Marches, Orlais, Nevarra, and the Dales
- There will be numerous companions, but BioWare promises none of them will be tied to DLC
- The dialogue wheel will feature three parts: tone, choice, and reaction
- There is a prologue section, but it will be a single story, unlike the multiple prologues in DA: Origins
- Playing as the Inquisitor, players will have a unique ability to to close tears in the Veil that are opening throughout Thedas
- Armor will not be class specific – a warrior can wear a mages’ robes
BioWare has been sharing quite a bit about DA: Inquisition of late, most notably the video below, and it’s hard not to get at least a little excited about what we’re seeing and hearing. The 40 different meaningful endings, in particular, seems like a concerted effort to make up for breaking previous promises.
