New Dragon Age: Inquisition videos offer expert tips and tricks

Hit the ground running in BioWare’s impending action RPG sequel

Dragon Age: Inquisition is a huge game with vast lands to explore and many things to do. In fact, on my personal completionist playthrough, I logged 20 hours of game time discovering the world of Thedas before even completing the first major quest in the game! Yes, Inquisition is indeed massive.

It is also a game about choice, where the decisions you make will shape the world. As the Inquisitor, you lead the most influential force in all of Thedas. People will place their hope in you and turn to you to do what’s best to stop the threat that is destroying the world.

Of course, perhaps the most important decision you’ll make is determining what type of Inquisitor you will create. Will you be male or female? Will you be human, elf, dwarf, or Qunari? Which class will you play as?

If that all sounds a bit intimidating, don’t worry! In the first of our tips-and-tricks video series, we take a closer look at the classes of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Not only does the video discuss the differences between the warrior, rogue, and mage classes, it goes even deeper to detail the specialisations for each. No matter how you like to play, Inquisition offers an experience to match.

Once you’ve created your Inquisitor and are ready to begin the adventure, you’re going to encounter some nasty enemies. As a matter of fact, you’ll be facing off against your first demon in the opening moments of the game. This is another opportunity to showcase how choice shapes your experience with the game.

Inquisition offers two different modes of combat: real-time and tactical. If you’re the type of player who likes to get up close and personal with your enemies, real-time combat allows you to run in with swords a-blazin’ (literally, if you’re using the Flames of the Inquisition weapons pack!).

If you prefer to go the more strategic route and survey the battlefield before engaging, tactical mode is sure to be of interest. In this mode, you can pause the game and use the Tactical Camera view to scout your enemies and issue commands to your party. You can stop and start time at your leisure, so if one strategy didn’t work, you can regroup and try something else.

In the second video of our tips-and-tricks series, we demonstrate tactical combat and provide a quick tutorial on Tactical Camera mode.

The Inquisition is nearly upon us. Lead them or fall.

  • We are excite!

    But Playstation, could you consider starting preload earlier than two days? There are folks in countries where download limits are imposed and it will take us over 48 hours to download it right now. It takes all the fun out of preloading, trust me.

    • Or just buy physical and avoid all that?

    • Oh thanks, I never thought of that. Except with physical I’d have to wait 14+ days for shipping for the same price, oh I see, that must be why I bought digital!

    • On that note – how come the PSN store pre-order states, that the game is not available untill the 21st, when it releases on the 20th in some (my) region? Will pre-ordering the game render the game locked until the 21st, or should we wait and just buy it when it appears (on the 20th)?

  • Um… Where’s the FIRST tips and tricks video about character classes?

  • After they allowed pre release reviews to be posted about this it hit my radar, looking forwards to seeing more about it before handing over the money, but now the publishers are containing reviews about bad/not as expected games but allowing reviews there confident about, yep, might just work, not as they intended mind, but most definitely re this title.

  • My first smart move this year was trading in Destiny for Mordor.
    My second was canceling Unity for this!

    Friday feels so far away X_X

  • This is 100% my GOTY.

  • I <3 Bioware, shame its 21st here in UK, but at least it'll give me 3 days of FarCry 4.

  • Double post, sorry.

    • I believe the release dates are mostly based on the UK, which is normally a Friday, despite us in Scandinavia getting games a few days earlier. I could be wrong but the psn release dates are always based on the UK release window which is annoying.

    • exactly in sweden it is 20 and och psn store its 21 !
      I have preorder it från playstation store so i have to se the countdown one more day that i should!

    • Same situation here. I’m from Germany, the German release date is November 20, not 21st. :/

  • Same here. Italy should be Novembre 20, Psn Store says 21…
    This is the first and last time I buy anything on the Italian Psn Store.
