Electronic Arts showed off the latest revelations about its Dragon Age: Inquisition game at the Gamescom game expo in Cologne, Germany. The game is highly anticipated, so it wasn’t a bad way to start out the company’s press conference.
Aaryn Flynn, general manager at BioWare, drove the demo. He noted there will be nine companions by your side as you embark upon quests in the big budget fantasy action role-playing game. The scope of the game is huge, with hundreds of weapons in the game, all of which you can name as you claim them for your own. You can customize your own stronghold in a fortress dubbed Skyhold. And you can explore big regions.
In the latest game demo, EA showed on how the combat is fast and furious. The hero — a human woman — ran around with a huge flaming sword, setting alight every foe as she slammed the sword into them. Flynn paused in the middle to look at inventory and show there are 200 spells and abilities to choose from.
The hero went into a castle, dubbed Hargrave Keep, amid a downpour in the middle of the night in the world of Thedas. The hero performs a rescue, one of hundreds that can happen in the game. In the game, the heroes of the Inquisition must stand together as tales of an Elder One emerge. Flynn said there are at least 150 hours of gameplay in the title.

“It’s the next-generation RPG that defines the future of BioWare,” Flynn said. “It’s up to you to lead, or the world will fall.”
Here’s the latest trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition. The game will be available on Nov. 18.
