EA's BioWare today announced the cooperative dungeon crawling multiplayer mode in Dragon Age: Inquisition
. Created alongside the single player campaign, this marks the first time gamers can play with their friends in the "Dragon Age" franchise. The multiplayer mode in Dragon Age: Inquisition
will feature action-packed four player cooperative quests separate from the single player open world story.
"For 'Dragon Age: Inquisition,' a special team of veteran developers from the 'Dragon Age' and 'Mass Effect' franchises created fun, fast-paced multiplayer gameplay that requires strategic teamwork on top of Inquisition's party-based combat and extensive loot and crafting system," said Aaryn Flynn, General Manager, BioWare. "It was early in the game's development that we realized how much fun fans of our series were having, with so many players teaming up in 'Mass Effect 3's' multiplayer mode. We can't wait to give 'Dragon Age' fans an even bigger and deeper experience."
