Nearly a year after Dragon Age: Inquisition launched and the game is still getting a regular supply of DLC. That steady flow of content will be coming to a halt soon, however, as the team at BioWare announces the upcoming Trespasser update will bring the story to a close.
Dragon Age: Inquisition has been no stranger to downloadable content throughout 2015. Along with all sorts of regular updates to the game and additional small additions to your gear and wardrobe, Inquisition has received a number of story-driven pieces of content that have helped continue building the world of Thedas.
This particular chapter of the series' story is about to come to a close, though, as BioWare announced during its PAX update over the weekend that Trespasser would tell the game's final tale.
“It's something we haven't tried before: an epilogue,” reads the announcement. “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.”
We imagine all of that likely piqued the interest of more than a few fans of Inquisition. Many fans and critics alike praised Inqusition's engaging story when it first released about a year ago, so it will be interesting to see where the world rests a couple of years into the future. Even more intriguing is this idea of exploring the world of a hero when said world no longer needs said hero. And what about this new threat BioWare is teasing? Could this be giving us a lead-up to the big bad from the next game that, at this point, we have to assume is in the works?
When the Trespasser DLC drops, you'll need to have played the main game's campaign to completion before digging into the new story beats. That makes a lot of since sine, you know, it takes place in the future and all.
And if that's not enough to get you excited, it sounds like some other upcoming updates will make the game even better through the implementation of some much-requested tweaks. For starters, the Golden Nug statue will allow you to sync your collectibles across all games, making it easier to keep up with that rare loot and, even better, grant your fresh characters access to all of that late-game gear nice and early.
Skyhold will also have a wardrobe feature following the next patch, allowing you to try on outfits and check out different color schemes to make sure your character is ready to adventure in style.
