Clarification on Regions in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Last Updated: April 5, 2014

We previously reported that Dragon Age: Inquistion would cover five regions, namely Fereldan, The Free Marches, Orlais, Nevarra, and the Dales. However, Creative Director Mike Laidlaw has since clarified that while the Free Marches and Nevarra are important to the story, you won’t actually travel there during the game.

This is disappointing, since we were looking forward to those five regions, but at least it sounds like we’ll still have Fereldan, Orlais, and the Dales to visit. After seeing the image of the Dales, we can’t wait to go there.

We’ve also learned from Laidlaw that Inquisition will have a dialogue option structure similar to that of Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect, but with options as varied as those seen in Dragon Age: Origins. Additionally, you’ll be able to obtain a combat roll ability.

Finally, in case you’ve been looking at the information about companions and wondering what happened to your favorite witch, Morrigan will be very important to the story, but she is not a party member.

What are your thoughts on Inquisition? We’ve had some of our expectations tempered thanks to clarification on some of these early reports, but the game still sounds great. Do you think Bioware will live up to what fans of the series expect?
