Dragon Age Inquisition: Bioware Reveals the Foundation of Multiplayer Mode

By   /   Nov 5, 2014

Dragon Age Inquisition features series first multiplayer mode, and Bioware revealed that adding multiplayer was not a last-minute decision.

Later this month, we will be able to jump to the fantasy world of Dragon Age: Inquisition and for the first time, experience what this franchise has to offer in terms of multiplayer.

Speaking in an interview, executive producer Mark Darrah revealed that the company was working on a project which was code-named Blackfoot, it was a Dragon Age title and was multiplayer only.

The game was in development before the release of Dragon Age 2. He also said that project Blackfoot became the foundation of Dragon Age Inquisition, and they have been working on it for a while now.

Mark Darrah further stated:

It’s been a single player experience on computers for a long time, but Baldur’s Gate had multiplayer co-op through the story. This is an attempt to get that feeling back, something you can do, get a fantasy experience, but much more bite-size.

Dragon Age Inquisition’s multiplayer is a completely separate experience and doesn’t tie in to the main story.

Over the years, the highly successful Elder’s Scrolls V: Skyrim has definitely impacted role playing genre and speaking about how it changed people’s expectations, Durrah said:

Now suddenly you have 15 million people that have basically had the first RPG they’ve ever played as Skyrim. They have totally different expectations of what storytelling is, what exploration is, and I think exploration is really where we’ve seen the biggest change.

With new and stronger gaming hardware available now in the market, we are seeing bigger and more detailed open world games than ever. Mark believes that open world exploration games will the dominant genre this console generation.

Do you agree with him?
