Good news for those players addicted to Dragon Age: Inquisition, new story DLC is on its way. Trespasser is the upcoming DLC that will tell a whole new story that is set two years after the main game. What happens to a world-saving organization when the world no longer needs to be saved? Well Trespasser will explore what it is like.
Alongside the DLC, Golden Nug, a collectible syncing program and a Skyhold wardrobe were also announced. Now players can play dress up with a variety of pre-loaded outfits.
Check out the Trespasser DLC trailer below.
New Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC and more coming soon
I’m writing this a little in advance of PAX Prime so that it can be put up right after our panel on Saturday. Hopefully everything went well, and you’ve heard all about the upcoming content that will conclude our adventures together in Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Before I go into detail, let me just say thank you. This game has been a crazy ride, from the moment we decided to completely rebuild DA on the Frostbite engine to today, when so many of you have stunned us with your amazing fan creations, passion and, of course, feedback on what we did right and where we can improve should we do another. Thank you on all counts!
First, the Golden Nug lets you “sync” your collectibles across games after you’ve completed DA:I’s main story. To take advantage of this, head to the Skyhold Undercroft post game and click the new Golden Nug statue. After you’ve done that once, every game that’s both a) online and b) on the same platform will have a similar statue added to the Undercroft and Haven. Clicking on that statue will sync your current game. This sync is bi-directional and additive, which means that any collectibles will be added to the online collection, even if the character doing the clicking is pre-endgame. It’s like new game plus… without having to start a new game.
We’re quite excited about this approach, since it lets you take advantage of your collection without having to restart a game already in progress. Also, each character that participates adds to your collection. The sync includes crafting schematics (including those acquired in DLC packs, as long as the packs are installed), potion recipes (but not upgrades), mounts, and Skyhold decorations.
Second, Skyhold now has a wardrobe. It comes pre-loaded with about a dozen outfits of varying colors, each carefully selected to minimize instances of plunging a spiked pauldron into your love interest’s face when you kiss him or her.
The default beige is still available if that’s your jam, of course, but we heard loud and clear that some (okay, yes, pretty much everyone) of you wanted some variety. To find the wardrobe, head to your bedroom once the game patches.
As with all of our patch content, these features are being added for free.
Our final announcement today was of Trespasser, the final DLC for Inquisition. It’s something we haven’t tried before: an epilogue. Trespasser tells an entirely new story, set two years after the main game. The story explores what it’s like to be a world-saving organization when the world no longer needs saving. It’s a chance to meet and talk with old friends, to uncover a new threat, and ultimately decide the fate of the Inquisition you worked so hard to build. It might just contain hints about the future of Thedas, too.
