Dragon Age: Inquisition
DAI is at last coming on 17th in NA and on 20th everywhere else.

For the uninitiated, video trailers:

Following in the footsteps of Mass Effect 3, DAI also has multiplayer and there is a multiplayer trailer among the above. Multiplayer is co-op dungeon crawling (and probably some open areas too) where multiplayer characters are hired hands working for the Inquisitor, player character in single player.

Me, MatthTheGeek, The E and possibly one or two others who frequent #hard-light are going to play the **** out of DAI multi. Obviously we're going to play single-player initially, but sooner or later we'll jump right into multiplayer. Come join us.

Re: Dragon Age: Inquisition
Well, my internet wants me to buy this about as badly as it wanted me to watch Into Darkness.

But I've yet to develop enough "care" about this game after 2.

Re: Dragon Age: Inquisition
Got it ordered and waiting for the bloody 20th to roll around.

I'm just praying that it will be good.

Edit: Origin name is Alq_Veers  I dunno if I'll be touching MP though. Guess we'll see.

Re: Dragon Age: Inquisition
As someone who actually liked DAII and appreciated what the writers were trying to do with it even if they made a lot of mistakes that unfortunately sent them scurrying away from the backlash back towards the save-the-world-cliche plot, I'm definitely looking forward to this one. I'm just hoping they didn't swing too far towards Skyrim and make the story too sparse. I don't like that everyone is trying to go super open world now. It'd be exhausted if I had to play a bunch of games like that - a few years between each Elder Scrolls game when they were the only one of its kind was perfect (and if I didn't like the new one I'd be in the mood to replay Morrowind). Plus, Dragon Age and the Witcher have a particular style I appreciate and I think it's dumb to throw that away just because Skyrim is the rage.

Now, if the Skyrim references are for marketing and the game itself has the more constrained exploration of Baldur's Gate, THAT is something I would be psyched about.

Re: Dragon Age: Inquisition
HLP_MP-Ryan.  I believe I have E, Matth, and you on my list already Fury.  I won't be picking this up right away most likely, but let me know if the multi is really good and I might consider skipping through my backlog and picking it up.

Re: Dragon Age: Inquisition
And here's an overview of multi mechanics known so far.
http://forum.bioware.com/topic/512433-what-we-know-so-far-111114-huge-update-from-developer-stream/#entry17210829

I have to say, this is making me unreasonably excited and contemplate buying the game.

Multiplayer.....ugh. They are really trying to crowbar that everywhere.

Everyone, myself included, said that about ME3 multi too, then we played it... and I can't speak for anyone else, but I logged FAR more hours in multiplayer than I did in singleplayer.  Despite all its flaws, it was immensely fun.

ME3 multiplayer was surprisingly well-executed.

(Most) People have friends and want to play games with their friends.  I don't understand why this is such a hard concept to wrap your head around that lots of people want multiplayer for good games.

DA:I multiplayer is confirmed to not interact with SP.

Maybe because RPG's are single-player, immersive experiences?
Co-op might work well with them.

But competetive multiplayer feels like a different game tacked on.

MMORPG's have already busted that myth. Also, DAI has no competitive or PvP multiplayer of any kind.

Agree, it was an amazing surprise! Don't care at all how it "interacted" with the "SP" experience.

Man, whenever I get around to ME3, the  multi will probably be long dead. :(

The next time you jump into a thread like this without bothering to read a single damn thing I'm giving you a warning.
