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.

No thanks, I will play Dark Souls 2 instead.
I'm breaking my general rule about avoiding EA games and I'm going to purchase this. I get the sense that BioWare has taken criticism of DA2 to heart. If they make this Online Only though I swear to god I'm going to loose my mind and never look at an EA game again.
I hope its More like Dragon Age: Origins I loved that game.
I'm not the biggest Dragon Age fan, but that cover art is pretty awesome.
That looks incredible. Anything Bio-Ware has made I've always loved. Can't wait for this
I love the cover! Really looking forward to this.
Alright, this looks like a good few steps in the right direction!
I dunno.. After the steaming terd that was Dragon 2 and men french kissing each other they may have lost me. I need to see a heck of a lot more before I'm remotely interested in this.. It's a shame because Origins is a favorite of mine.
Really hyped for this game! I bored out of Skyrim less than a month into having it, and I've been waiting for an open world RPG to recapture my imagination like Oblivion and Dragon Age: Origins once did.
Varric..... yes.. good.
At BSN they revealed quite a bit about the story that's got me excited.
Looks awesome. Can't wait to read more on it when the newest issue of GI arrives by mail!
Yes. Yes. YES!! Haha, loving it! And that cover art is off the wall awesome.
