Dragon Age: Inquisition is the third installment in the series of role-playing games developed by BioWare.
Dragon Age: Inquisition takes the player yet again to the world of Thedas which after the events of the previous two games has plunged into chaos. The action begins 10 years after the finale of Dragon Age: Origins. Kingdom of Ferelden did not manage to regain full strength after the invasion of Darkspawn (Blight), which was the main theme of Origins, and Orlais is embroiled in a civil war. Meanwhile, mages and Templars are battling all over the continent. Amid this fuss a tear in the border between the realm of mortals and the Fade is created, leading to the invasion of demons. This new threat is to be faced by the politically independent Inquisition.
The players assume the role of the leader of this organization, and their mission is to discover the identity of the person responsible for bringing demons into the world of the living, and to gather enough power to stop the invasion. Character creator not only offers choosing the class (warrior, rogue, mage), gender, the appearance, and the name of the protagonist but also the race (human, elf, dwarf, and qunari). The protagonist is fully voiced.
The main character is accompanied by companions, some of which appeared in the previous installments of the series (e.g. Varric). Not only do they provide invaluable help during combat, but they are also an important part of the story. By talking with them, the player learns their history, motives and goals. What’s more, PC’s actions affect how the companions perceive him/her. Romances, which are characteristic of Dragon Age series, are also a very important part of the relationship with the companions. It is also noteworthy that the developers of Inquisition set themselves the goal of showing the interpersonal relationships in a more natural and mature way, which is reflected mainly in modernized sex scenes.
The player often faces moral decisions in which the traditional distinction between good and evil does not work. Some of them are important to the plot and their consequences are not always immediately visible. The possibility of importing saved games allows the Dragon Age veterans to transfer a part of the decisions they made in the previous installment of the series. The people who, in turn, do not have any experience with Dragon Age, and would also like to outline their own history of the world and its inhabitants, can take advantage of the Dragon Age Keep website which was prepared on the occasion of Dragon Age: Inquisition launch and enables the players to generate a customized game save to import.
