Firstly, here is some recent BioWare news you may or may not be familiar with.
Following an unsuccessful launch of Mass Effect: Andromeda, the BioWare studio responsible for the series, BioWare Montreal, was shut down and absorbed by EA Motive. The future of Mass Effect is not clear.
Casey Hudson, the project director for Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3, has left BioWare in 2014, but returned to BioWare some six months ago to replace Aaryn Flynn as the general manager. Recently he has stated that the the production on the next Dragon Age game was completely rebooted to "add more live elements". Naturally, with it being EA, the fans assumed it means EA are adding lootboxes a'la Star Wars: Battlefront II fiasco. But, Hudson was quick to clarify (or at lea…Read more >
I have played through the Jaws of Hakkon when it was first released, and I thought it was okay. But I have finished playing The Descent for the first time just recently and I'm sure everyone else was just as amazed when they've beaten it as I was.
Whilst the Descent was a lot more lore-packed, the Jaws of Hakkon also had some interesting things in it.

If you are still one of those who did not acquire Dragon Age: Inquisition, or if you own the console version of it and want to give it a go on the PC, BioWare has news for you.
"Dragon Age: Inquisiton Trial" was just made available through Origin for free. The Trial version will let players enjoy six hours of the single player campaign of the game, and unlimited multiplayer, essentially making Inquisition's multiplayer a Free to Play. No news about such development for consoles.Read more >
If you were worried whether or not BioWare will release any additional content to Dragon Age: Inquisition any time soon, worry no more, for Mark Darrah confirmed DLC is in the works via his twitter.
If the official website is to be any indication, Xbox One and PC will get the new downloadable content or contents before Xbox 360, PS 3, and PS4, as the website states that "Premiere Add-On Content Coming to Console First on Xbox One".
No more details are known at the moment, and thus it is not known whether it will be a story-based DLC, or maybe more of an item pack.Read more >
