The lights are on
The third installment of the Dragon Age franchise casts players as the head of the Inquisition, a recently resurrected organization charged with rooting out corruption and evil in the land of Thedas. As the game begins, the Inquisition has plenty to investigate. War, scheming, and political strife have left the major power groups in the Dragon Age universe unable to operate effectively, which is a problem when a hole opens in the sky and demons begin pouring out. Players must fight back against the demonic threat while exploring a vast world and consolidating power for the growing Inquisition. Large and varied environments, customizable armor, and the return of multiple player races are just a few of the ways BioWare is addressing feedback from previous titles in order to shape a new future for the franchise.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The E3 trailer provided more questions than answers for fans, and we have a whole month of exclusive features lined up covering everything from combat to character creation. To see what's in store, watch the coverage trailer below.

The art looks fantastic, hoping the gameplay will match.
Sweet, can't wait for the issue! Cover looks beautiful, and can't wait for the feedback section, always my favorite part.
Awesome cover for September. I can't wait to see what's in store for the new DA game.
I was extremely disappointed with Dragon Age II, but this is looking great.
I'm glad they're bringing back multiple player-character races. As much as I like playing as humans in RPG's (they're sort of my basic "go to" race), it was definitely a very odd choice to go from giving players a number of different racial options in Origins to forcing them to play as a human in DA2.
Awesome cover and i look forward to hearing more Dragon Age Inquistion.
