Dragon Age Western Approach 6

Last week, we got a glimpse of the Western Approach, an arid desert area in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Bioware has since shared many more screenshots of this area, including the imposing Adamant Fortress.

One screenshot was accompanied by a new article added to the website about the Grey Wardens and their struggle against the darkspawn. Consider it a brief history if you haven’t played the previous games, or if you’d just like to brush up on the lore.

As explained in another addition to the website, the Grey Wardens are linked to the “fortress of Adamant.” It was once a stronghold for the Wardens, but they reluctantly sealed and abandoned it when the Western Approach became a desert.

The Western Approach was once green and filled with life. You’d never know it when you see it now, though.
