I loved DA: Origins, and liked DA:2 enough - even with the small map and repeated use of same content - to have pre ordered DA:I a while back.
Anyone else planning on playing this game?

I just got access to the beta of the Dragon Age Keep to prepare for Dragon Age: Inquisition. The keep is where one recreates old playthroughs to get the choices from old games into the new game. Sort of like Mass Effect keeps things if you play on the same system or had in-game options to recreate it. (if it wasn't ME, then it was some other game I forgot about :mrgreen: )

The keep's not working 100% yet, it's beta after all, but I hope they get the syncing fixed soon since I can't remember all my old playthroughs and choices.

Ive asked the wife to get it for Xmas for me. I played all the Dragon Age games and expansions on the 360. I really loved them too, so looking forward to this one too. Isnt this the ps4 first rpg? I suppose you could argue Child Of Light and Valiant Hearts are too, but theyre more old school rather than modern rpgs.

Myeah, depends on your definition I guess, I don't think Child of Light falls into the RPG category and never played Valiant Hearts, but some consider Destiny and Diablo 3 RPGs as well (again: not me though).

For me this will be my first RPG on the PS4 indeed and looking forward to it :)

You think I'm crazy!?!?! She'd have never bought it for me if she had an inkling. She already thinks I play far too much

How you guys finding this game, I am tempted to get it. (It's a call between farcry 4 or this - maybe both depending on Game's Black Friday sale 28th Nov)

It's great so far, think I got about 10 hours in now and still haven't seen or done that much. Lots of codexes etc to read, people to talk to and things to see.
While the characters look a bit meh, the environment looks beautiful, especially considering the size of the game.
I need to get used to the fighting controls, somehow I can't really work with the tactical view and prefer the "action" mode.

Dragon Age: Inquisition now has free multiplayer DLC
Also allows Standard Edition owners to buy Deluxe bonus content.

A couple of new pieces of Dragon Age: Inquisition content have pleasantly snuck up on us.

Available for all platforms, there's the new free multiplayer add-on Destruction. This update adds more combat scenarios to the core game. "Destruction adds new paths to existing destinations," BioWare noted on its Dragon Age blog. "The conflicts raging throughout the world have upset the balance of nature. Wild creatures now roam the battlefield, introducing chaos as they attack both friend and foe."

The other DLC Pack is the Deluxe Upgrade, which allows users who bought the Standard Edition of the game to get all the Deluxe content by spending $9.99 (so about £7) on an upgrade.

This bonus content includes: the Skyhold Throne, Red Hart Halla, Bog Unicorn, a digital soundtrack, Dragon Age Multiplayer Deluxe Edition chests, and the Flames of the Inquisition gear (which itself includes Inquisitor Armour, an Armoured Mount and the Flames of the Inquisition weapon set).

After approximately 130 hours I finished.
Hotdamn, I loved this game!
Only major annoyance is I missed one potential party member... Didn't know they were missable and I'm still cranky about the fact I did miss her :rant:

Other than that, deffo GoT for me.

For those who play this: watch the entire ending credits!
A little plottwist at the end leaving room for DLC or DA4.
I never liked that sob anyways :P

Some might replay, but for me as roleplayer: this was my story and I'll live with the consequences, but it was a good ride!

Can't wait for Witcher 3
