Today, Bioware released a new trailer. Title "Hero of Thedas".
Here's a link as well. Enjoy, and feel free to discuss. Will this be the final trailer?
Vivienne is confirmed to be the voice at the beginning. It sounds like Solas speaking at the end, and during. It would also appear Solas is the one who leads us to Skyhold.Read more >
Hi all, following my participating in the awesome fan-fic forum 'Lord Cousland's Dinner Party' (check it out if you haven't yet) and reading some other examples of fan fiction from around the Wiki, I have decided to start my own. I probably won't be getting pieces up very quickly, so hopefully if you are enjoying it you can stand waiting for more. To my friends from the afore mentioned forum, I hope you don't mind, but I was planning on setting it in that universe and using some of your characters, if you have suggestions, preferences or concerns let me know. I have christened this story 'Dragon Age: Agents'. It is set during the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition and may be rendered an alternate universe once DA:I actually comes out. For n…Read more >

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 …Read more >

So, I haven't seen anyone post this yet. Some of the people working on the Keep ran a twitch stream on friday, and a did a bit of Q&A.
The archived twitch stream can be found Here. Youtube now has it in two parts. Part 1 and Part 2.
They mention that a new wave of invites will be coming out, so anyone who signed up but hasn't gotten in will hopefully be getting in soon. Now, a brief summary of what was said, courtesy of Star Metal Knight.
1. The Varric VO is in 3 languages - English, German and French. Other countries will have subtitles for the time being.
2. If you play while connected in DAI, all the decisions will move to the Keep. You can change your decisions from DAI in the Keep at a later date.
3. How to create and import a World State? …Read more >
BioWare released a Q&A regarding crafting and customization, which you can read here.
The Q&A answers these questions:
- If I choose not to craft, will I still be able to find unique or powerful weapons and armor?
- How will the inventory of your backpack be managed in DAI? Will it be determined by number of slots or weight of objects?
- Will there be schematics to craft weapons and armor?
- Are craftable weapons comparably strong to looted ones?
- Can we craft weapons with elemental effects?
- Can mage staves also be modified?
- Can you craft absolutely unique armor or weapons?
- Will there be new materials to the series to craft items with?
- Will there be rare crafting materials, or are most of them easy to find?
- What level of customization will we have with our co…

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 …Read more >
Many have expressed their interest in seeing more of character creation, and BioWare finally delivered a presentation of the character creator. The newest additions seem to be the click & drag feature, free hand at picking colors from a palette instead of default colors, and the ability to change the color of the inner and outer part of the iris. 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 >
Additional theories regarding the explosion that caused the first Breach, the origins and special power of the Inquisitor, as well as my own thoughts on the playable races, classes, and their backstories.
Hello again everyone, and thanks for checking out my second blog post here. I just want to share a quick theory or two that deal mostly with the “Enemy of Thedas” trailer, as well as some thoughts on the different races available for us to choose from when we start the game.
This won’t be nearly as long as my previous blog post about the fates of the Hero and Champion as well as the main plot predictions, which you can find here. The first half addresses the new theory I have in conjunction with my last one, and then the second half address…Read more >

BioWare have unveiled the second round of abilities available to mages in Dragon Age: Inquisition. All abilities featured appear to be entirely new or modified takes on previously seen spells, including a skill which looks remarkably similar to the "teleportation" used by enemy mages in Dragon Age II.
BioWare has released part 3 of the interview in regards to Skyhold which can be found here. In part 3 Cameron Lee discusses controlling the seat of power at Skyhold and passing judgment on your foes.
Cameron went on to say as to how "As the Inquisitor, you have an authority that spans nations, shaping events and issuing commands to your agents throughout a land in strife." We assume the role of what may be described as a judge, jury and executioner, as well as facing the repercussions of our own decisions.
Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on November 18 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.Read more >
There are millions of ways to play Bioware's fantastic adventure games. The Protagonist in the upcoming game which is your character is the star of the game and makes all the decisions whether they are good for the story or very bad. My question to you all is WHO IS YOUR INQUISITOR? Is it a dwarven female warrior goody two shoes who will break every bone in her body just so that everyone else can be happy? Is it a roguish elven bastard who would let a village of orphans be slaughtered just so he could gain 100 sovereigns? Or is it a neutral Qunari Sarebaas (mage) who does whatever whenever and at his own pace? So my question to you all for your first playthrough is simple: WHO IS YOUR INQUISITOR?Read more >
This blog is my ideas on how certain elements of the Dragon Age series, should have been made in MY opinion. Now I will be explaining this both in lore and game format.
1 Magic: My favorite thing in Dragon Age, as I normally play a Mage. First off, I don't like all the limitations of magic. Cannot revive the dead, or gain eternal youth (immortal status), cannot teleport. I always felt that magic in really any series should have restrictions not limits. Difference is things are restrict meaning, can do something but is preventing it. Where as limits is just built to where something can't happen. With that I think the extreme like travel travel or (completely reviving the dead) to be nearly impossible. As for the origins of Magic itself, my i…Read more >
BioWare continues revealing abilities for each class. This time around it's about warriors again, specifically those who use weapons and shield. The new addition seems to be the Payback Strike. Judging by the description of Shield Bash, let's hope shields will be more effective as weapons than they were in Dragon Age II, just like one could deal a decent damage with a shield in Dragon Age: Origins.Read more >
Following the previous interview in regards to Skyhold, BioWare have gone on to release new information which can be found here. In part 2 of this interview series, Cameron Lee goes on to discuss the war table, and the role of your advisors.
Upon being asked what types of tasks can be carried out on the war table he claims: "There are over 300 missions and operations available on the war table, and they can change depending on your previous choices and actions in the game. There's a range of types: scouting missions to establish the first camp in a new area you'd like to explore, building missions to raise structures in the areas you've being exploring, recruitment missions to bring expertise into the inquisition, treaties, resource-gatheri…Read more >
Those who prefer the sneaky approach, heads up; BioWare revealed another three abilities for the rogues in Dragon Age: Inquisition. While Twin Fangs have been a dual wielding ability in Dragon Age II, the other two resembles more the previous games' assassin abilities. Just a little more than two months and we shall find out more of what else we'll have in store for our deadly rogues!Read more >
Following an article introducing Skyhold, BioWare have released their own look at the Inquisition's mountain headquarters.
Cameron Lee, one of BioWare's producers, discusses the function of Skyhold and the extent to which players can customize and interact with it. The castle is enormous, and is the nervecentre of Inquisition operations - whether The Inquisitor is "directing agents through Thedas" or even determining "the fate of nations", this is where they will do it from.
Customization of the base also promises to be extensive, with the player being able to align Skyhold's appearance and function with the type of Inquisition they are creating. In addition to building major sections of the castle such as courtyards and towers, aesthetic o…

In addition to the recent reveal of two-handed talents for Inquisitors with a penchant for swordplay, BioWare have today unveiled some of the talents open to mages in the upcoming game, drawing on familiar favourites from both games along with a new fire spell which promises to be hot talking point.Read more >
Those of you who like swinging large objects will be happy to know that BioWare has given us a sneak peak of three talents from the two-handed tree in Dragon Age: Inquisition. While only the Earthshaking Strike is new, it's always nice to see the return of some classics. Check out the descriptions in the image to the side.Read more >
Gameinformer has kindly revealed more information in regards to Skyhold in Dragon Age: Inquisition. The link can be found here
They said the following:
"You don’t start the game with Skyhold as your base of operations. For the early part of the adventure – before the Inquisition is even properly formed – you and your allies gather at the village of Haven."
"When you first reach Skyhold, it’s not in good shape,” Mike Laidlaw says. “There are holes in the roofs, it’s wrecked, you can’t even go to the entire castle because they haven’t cleared out the rubble yet." As well as this, we will have the pleasure of customising Skyhold.
With Dragon Age: Inquisition only a couple of months away, expect more details to arrive in the near future.Read more >
We finally have all our options. Mike Laidlaw has confirmed Blackwall as the last romance, female exclusive and for all races. http://forum.bioware.com/topic/512958-romances-in-dragon-age-inquisition/ Cullen is the other race restricted romance, female human and elf only. What do you all think about this? Personally I'm pretty disappointed as I wanted Vivienne for a planned male Inquisitor, but that's just my personal opinion.
Also this is what Mike Laidlaw posted for those who want to save time looking at the link:
Here are our “core” romance options. They are available to players of any race, and fulfill our first design goal of providing multiple options to everyone:
Cassandra is interested in male characters.
Blackwall is interested in fem…Read more >
Though the NDA is still in effect and the Dragon Age Keep remains closed to the public, the well-known YouTuber Lady Insanity has been given permission from BioWare to unveil a demonstration of the Keep, complete with an explanation of its function by BioWare's Fernando Melo.

Multiplayer has been confirmed for BioWare's upcoming game Dragon Age: Inquisition. The link can be found here, via IGN.
Parties will consist of 4 players, and the four-player adventure is going to differ from that of Mass Effect 3’s online mode. As IGN claim: "Both share qualities, particularly in their economies, but in almost every instance, Inquisition’s levels, characters, and economy are significantly deeper."
BioWare’s Scylla Costa asserted that he hoped that fans “commit to a multiplayer service. That means lots of DLC, lots of new heroes and levels.” With an expansive single player mode, one might expect a connection between the two, however it has been said that missions have a slight connection to the single-player campaign, but Bi…Read more >

It's been some time since the Combat Q&A first came up, but they finally answered some of the questions asked of them regarding the combat system of Dragon Age: Inquisition. The Q&A involves questions of:
- Armor/weapon degradation
- Cooldown of abilities
- Instant death moves
- Dual wielding
- If there's a chance of someone improving their tactical skills in the game
- If weapons will be interchangable
- Arcane Warrior specialization
- Finishing moves
- Wether there's a completely new combat skill they can describe or reveal
- Health and mana/stamina regeneration
- Cross-class combos
- If all mage followers are able to heal just as well or are others better
- If there's anything more to the Inquisitor's power regarding combat
- How does focus work
- If there are spells/abilit…
For anyone who was interested in Dragon Age: The World of Thedas, it appears they intend to release a new volume. Dragon Age: The World of Thedas Volume 2 is already on Amazon, and while there's no description as of yet, the release date according to the site is April 21, 2015 and the price is $27.79.
Along with the coming The Art of Dragon Age: Inquisition, we will likely have a chance to learn even more of the extended universe of Dragon Age. Is there anything you hope for finding out more about?Read more >
A new Q&A took place in which the Dragon Age writers were asked about their opinions on villains and the writing process behind creating a villain. The interview can be found here.
David Gaider noted how his favourite villain was Loghain. As well as claiming: "I could imagine myself stepping into his shoes and taking some of the same actions he did… which is a little frightening." As well as this, Sylvia Feketekuty claimed hers was Meredith.
The interview gives a greater insight on creating villains, with Gaider asserting that "The story is largely from the hero's perspective, so you have to account for the villain's presence from that hero's viewpoint. The player is only aware of who the villain is and what they're doing insomuch as their cha…Read more >

First of all, I'm fairly new to the Dragon Age World. I played Origins when it came out, only picked up Dragon Age 2 a few months ago, and learned about inquisition last month. I've read summaries of the novels and comics, but haven't gotten an opportunity to pick them up myself yet. So, please give a little grace if this topic has already been covered. I've been following the trailers for Inquisition fairly closely, and something that intrigued me (and a lot of others) was the shot of what APPEARED to be the Inquisition fighting the Grey Wardens. I say appeared because it is always possible to infiltrate or impersonate (i.e. kill enough Grey Wardens or creates emblems on your armor to throw others off).
Now, one of the most recent trailers…Read more >
Firstly, I don't want to create any sort of definitive theory, I'd much rather point out some things that have made me, and will hopefully make any reader, think about. They can make a theory for themselves. Although I will pose a few theories about some things Dragon Age here.
So having rewatched the new trailer repeatedly, I have concluded that the voice over was done specifically to throw us off, I do recall several moments where demons have compared themselves to a god, and the number of voices makes me believe that none of them were the Elder One.
After reading a few comments on the enemy trailer, about the Elder One being an Old God, I gathered that quite a few people believe this. Personally I dislike the idea of having to fight an ol…Read more >
As many have heard of it already, Electronic Arts and BioWare is at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. It's been said they will introduce new content from Dragon Age: Inquisition amongst other EA games, so this time it's worth keeping an eye on the event.
They have released a trailer, in which we might see someone familiar... confirmed by Laidlaw. The appearance will also be customizable.
Dragon Age: Inquisition official trailer - The Enemy of Thedas:
In this video we can take a peek at customization, crafting and some more combat against the Avvars this time, with a human female warrior, Blackwall, Cole, Solas, and as a twist, a friendly Avvar:

For those of you who don't know, Trevor Morris is the successor of Inon Zur as the lead composer for Dragon Age: Inquisition. I am a big fan of his, and thus I wanted to share his past compositions with you all, of what could potentially be featured in a similar way in Dragon Age: Inquisition. What do you think of his style?
- World Map theme
- A compilation
- Another Compilation
- Cesare and Lucrezia's theme
- Messenger of War
These are among my favourites, especially the last one which suits the main feel of DAI from what we've already heard.
All credits go to the brilliant composer and those who put an effort into compiling his work.Read more >

Courtesy of PC Gamer UK and BioWare user ViSeiRa we have lots of new information on Dragon Age: Inquisition. Mild spoilers follow.
- Red Lyrium is an anti-magic substance... an opposite force to normal (blue) lyrium.
- Tactics are in (automated AI settings as described by the writer) and apparently you can set how much mana a mage companion can keep in reserve and at which HP threshold would a companion use a heath potion.. so looks like more grained control over tactics.
- After clearing parts of an area you can set up camps in that area, they give you access to scouts and you gain power, the resource you spend on operations.
- Certain parts of a map can be locked until you clear other ones.
- You can mark certain areas as operation points on the…
Alix Wilton Reagan, who provides the British accent option for for a female Inquisitor, is in a new video discussing her role. In the video she discusses things like the importance of having a female protagonist and how she determined what type of voice to use. We also get a brief glimpse of her voice in action.

To kick off the next phase of marketing, BioWare have released a narrated video showcasing the new and improved combat in Dragon Age: Inquisition.Read more >
BioWare is at Comic Con San Diego, and they have brought some more demos to the fans. So far they have been showing us the already well known demo with the female Qunari mage, but it seems they decided to show us what it's like with a male human rogue Inquisitor this time. One of the newest features seems to be the throwing knives, which has been available only for Tallis in previous installments. Other than an introduction to the dual wielder rogue gameplay, however, the areas and enemies are the same.
The video is of low quality as of yet, if there will be a video longer and of better quality than this, it will be updated.
Thank you Star Metal Knight for this great catch!Read more >
(And Maker Bless You, Anthony Heare) Poorly-written, guilty pleasure in the works since the summer of 2012 (G-d, how I miss that year). Complete with misspellings, grammar mistakes and Bullshit. Plus, is the "teenager" even fathomable in the DRAGON AGE universe?
Stories have a way of overtime becoming nothing but bullshit.
My father, Osen, told me this one night before bed next to the fireplace. He said that even the stories that were myth would overtime have their own facts changed from one generation of Bards to the others. The Chasind knew that and that must have been the reason why they threw half empty mugs at him, but not as well as my father who made somewhat of a living telling other people's bullshit from centuries past a…

While I impatiently wait for Inquisition to be within my clutches, I plan out several different character race and class combos. The sad thing is is that will be all for naught. I will start up a random character with a decent name, then get my ass handed to me within an hour of the game. Soon after I will delete the character and start a second character which ends up being vastly superior to its predecessor in every way possible. It happened to me in origins until I decided to play the Human Noble in my first full play through. I made it to Orzammar with my city elf before being demolished by the broodmother each time. Oh well, the cycle shall continue in Inquisition I suppose.Read more >
