Wardens, Heroes of Kirkwall and my fellow Inquisitors. I want to extend my thanks to everyone who has contributed to this community - editors, contributors, readers, and those wee ones on the chat who keep me up at night. Over these past 5 years we've seen the audience for this wiki grow and shrink and grow again as games are released. Here we are, a month away from the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Wikia and BioWare has graciously allowed Loleil and I to spend some time in San Francisco playing the game. After a day of play testing followed by two days of withdrawal, I am sure that:
Dragon Age: Inquisition will be the best game in the series.
And in anticipation of new visitors and a growing community, King Cousland, Loleil and I want to extend a warm welcome to Kelcat and HD3 who will be helping us grow this community.

Keep launches as an open beta.
There may be a waiting room depending on how many Keepers are logged on.
It's fast and easy to use once you're in.
Graphics and animation can always be upgraded by the Keep staff later.
The Keep's function is self-explanatory, but there's also a tutorial hidden in the "list" looking icon in the top left. Click to make a side panel shift out. The tutorial is in there along with other options, such as to see the achievements that carried over.
The Keep works by having your games upload your achievements and data to the BSN servers, and then the Keep accesses that information to load into itself. The Keep does not load your game choices. You will have to select the game choices manually. Hints are provided to refresh your memory. Finally, you save all that by exporting your save state to Inquisition. You can ma…

To promote the upcoming release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, EA have released Dragon Age: Origins for free on Origin- one of two games currently available on their "On the House" deals. It will only be available until the 18th of October, however once the game is downloaded, it is permanently tied to the user's Origin account.
Sadly it is only the standard edition, and DLC is still priced as usual, but this is a great opportunity for newcomers to the series to try the game out before Inquisition arrives. Those interested can pick up the game here.
The official Dragon Age website was updated with the following message to promote the recent announcement:
Dragon Age: Origins introduced gamers to the rich, detailed world of Thedas, a world filled with deadly mages and powerful dragons. The choice-driven RPG has strategic combat and a personalized story, and it’s free right now with Origin On the House!

A new video has been released in regards to Dragon Age: Inquisition which can be found hereRead more >
In case anyone missed the live streaming on Twitch from BioWare, they archived it and made it available for us.
We can see the game from the very beginning, how one chooses gender, race and class first. You can pick wether you want to be a Dual Wielding rogue, Archer, Two-Handed or Weapon & Shield warrior. It will not lock you in but instead gives you starting abilities and equipment accordingly to what you chose. They include character creation in this video as well. They also explain it a bit more how importing data from the Keep into the game will work and show when you will have the chance to do so. However, they refrained from revealing the intro of the game in this presentation.
After the character creation, they load a gameplay which takes place in the Deep Roads, with a male human warrior, Cassandra, Varric and Vivienne, involed in a quest against the Carta and some templars. The gameplay is relatively long and they answer quite a few questions asked by fans, such as if one can …Read more >

Also, all races are featured, albeit mostly humans - but you can see a male dwarf, a female elf and a female qunari, for which you can see some of the possible horns as well.Read more >
