BioWare Announces Multiplayer For Dragon Age: Inquisition
BioWare has revealed that Dragon Age: Inquisition will come packaged with cooperative multiplayer modes.
The co-op, as described by recent reports, will be made up of three four-player campaigns designed to be played in 20-30 minute sessions split up into small, randomly generated sections players can fight through. Each section will come with special gameplay mechanics that shift and change with each playthrough and that reward players with varied teams.
Gameplay itself will take place in real-time and remove the pause feature available in the tactical combat of the single player game. It will come packaged with nine playable characters at Inquisition’s launch and will also be privy to several free expansions. Perhaps best of all for BioWare fans who were less than happy with the way the developer integrated multiplayer into Mass Effect 3, the multiplayer game will exist separately from Inquisition’s main game.
“Singleplayer content is NOT locked behind [the multiplayer],” said BioWare’s Mark Darrah on Twitter.
Players will be able to get their first taste of this new multiplayer mode when Inquisition hits store shelves this November.
