Some new details on Dragon Age: Inquisition have surfaced from the latest issue of the Official Xbox Magazine.
A user on the OXM forums has broken down the new preview article on Dragon Age: Inquisition featured in the latest issue of the OXM magazine which reveals quite a few new details.
According to the article, there will be five different regions to explore in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Those five regions are called: Fereldan, The Free Marches, Orlais, Nevarra and the Dales. Each region will have different areas to explore, such as a war-torn region in Orlais, as well as a place called the Emerald Graves. The Emerald Graves, according to Mark Darrah, is a place where a group called the Dalish Elves planted a tree for every fallen soldier of the Exalted Marches.
Inside each region there will be animals to hunt and can even be hunted to “scarcity” which will allow other species to rapidly increase in number. No matter what region you’re exploring in, enemies will not scale to your level, and while the article isn’t specific on whether or not different areas will include more challenging enemies etc., each area will have certain enemies that, if defeated, will have a significant effect on the region. However, either the magazine or the forums user wasn’t very specific on what those exact effects would be.
The Inquisitor can affect a number of things in each region including establishing new trade routes, capturing territories and, as noted above, disrupt the local ecosystem by hunting certain species to scarcity.
One of the most interesting details, however, is that Dragon Age: Inquisition will include a staggering 40 different endings. These endings will not only be dependent on storyline choices this time around. The actions you take throughout the storyline will also affect how the game ends. Mark Darrah, Executive Producer of Dragon Age: Inquisition, states in the article that, “the endings will all be meaningfully different from one another. You won’t find 40 endings with only slight degrees of variation between them.”
Dragon Age: Inquisition is certainly shaping up to be an exciting RPG experience and should satisfy those disappointed by the delay of The Witcher 3 till 2015. I myself haven’t played a Dragon Age to completion yet as I just never got into the series, but Inquisition is certainly looking like a day one purchase to me. Let us know what you think about the latest installment in the Dragon Age series below and be on the lookout for some more details later on today or tomorrow. The article includes some extra details on companions, customization and the Inquisitor which we will report on later.
Let’s also hope that Dragon Age: Inquisition’s endings don’t fall into another Mass Effect 3 fiasco as well.
