Dragon Age: Inquisition’s next slice of single-player DLC, The Descent, will be released next week on August 11, publisher EA has announced.
The Descent is the second piece of single-player DLC for DA:I, following Jaws of Hakkon. In The Descent, players traverse the legendary Deep Roads and battle the ultimate Darkspawn horde. The Descent is said be “substantial” in size, though it’s not known just how much content will be on offer.
Have a look for yourself:
I’m all for cool walking shots and everything, but why are there always bridges in these videos? I mean, seriously.
Aside from battling baddies in a Diablo-esque setting, The Descent also promises players that they will uncover a world-shaking secret, which sounds just vague enough to tell us nothing except that this doesn’t appear to be the epilogue DLC supposedly leaked not too long ago. So sorry if you wanted some closure to Dragon Age: Inquisition’s story, but be happy there is still more story-driven content coming down the road.
There will be no timed exclusivity for The Descent, so it will launch simultaneously on PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on August 11. Unfortunately for Xbox 360 and PS3 owners, The Descent DLC won’t be released for those platforms.
Jodie Rodgers reviewed Dragon Age: Inquisition for Continue Play, and loved it. She’s not alone, either – we named Bioware’s epic RPG our Game of the Year for 2014.
“Dragon Age: Inquisition is a masterful representation of its genre and sets a new standard for RPGs to live up to,” Jodie wrote in our Dragon Age: Inquisition review. “It sets itself apart from other games through its fascinating narrative and rich cast, and is easily the best role-playing game of the year. Bioware has created a jewel when so many expected them to unveil a lump of coal, and reestablished themselves as masters of the genre.”
