Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch 9 Notes

The upcoming Patch 9 for Dragon Age: Inquisition contains a number of bug fixes and improvements to multiplayer.

Pala willingly chose exile to join the Inquisition in its perpetual struggle against the enemies of Thedas.

In addition, some platform-specific issues were resolved, including graphical issues for PC users with AMD Crossfire dual GPU and Mantle.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch 8 Notes

In the current Patch 8 for Dragon Age: Inquisition, our focus is on introducing new multiplayer features, improvements to overall multiplayer stability, and a new Save Importer feature for migrating single-player save games and multiplayer data to new consoles.

Players have been asking for a bigger multiplayer challenge, so we’ve created Nightmare difficulty, a step up from Perilous in every way. We’ve also introduced a number of new and rare high-level weapons, some from the Avvar clans.

Players can now step into the Proving Grounds, a new tutorial level that allows you to test your class, abilities, and load-out before stepping into the heat of a multiplayer battle. Proving Grounds is accessible from the class-selection screen.

Upgrading your console? We’ve added a Save Importer feature that allows players to migrate their single-player save games and multiplayer data to PlayStation®4 or Xbox One so they can keep playing without having to start over from scratch. Full details here.

In Case You Missed It #3

Welcome to “In Case You Missed It,” a biweekly recap of the latest and greatest floating around the BioWare social media universe.

After seeing your reaction videos to #MEAndromeda, we got meta and recorded a reaction of our own.

Let con season begin!

Are Cassandra and Leliana angry ’cause they’re in the wrong universe, or are they just focused on blowing up some husks?

Billy died one time too many during our last #DAIMP stream, so the community gave him the title of Noobtella. Remember to use your health potions, Billy. A+ Photoshop work from Luana.


June 26 was an important step forward for equality and one we’re thrilled to see.

That’s it, folks. Tweet us with photos, screencaps, anything BioWare-related that you think is cool, and we might include it in future installments.

Cole Character Kit

Cole_Blog_Cover

He is a ghost in the shadows, walking unnoticed through crowds. He can slit an enemy’s throat before they even realize he’s there, and slip away, never to be seen again. Those few who do notice him soon forget he ever existed… and Cole isn’t certain that he does exist. He is a spirit, impossibly caught between the immaterial realm of the Fade and the confusing realities of our physical world, but does that make him real? Does it make him human or a demonic pretender, as some believe?

All Cole knows for certain is that the world is full of pain and he must find his place within it. Those who wish to restore order and help the helpless will find him a strange but unwavering ally. Those who use their power for selfish reasons may never see Cole again—if they remember that he was there to begin with.
