Dragon Age: Inquisition is a rather large game that’ll take most players dozens of hours to complete, and dozens more to finish every quest. It’s a game that’s packed with content to keep players occupied, though some quests are clearly better made and more satisfying than others. Hunting and fighting High Dragons never gets old, while the fourth or fifth “go to the purple area and find the thing” quest inevitably begins to feel like busy work.
Recent patches, like Patch 5, implemented new features for players to mess around with, like the heavily requested item storage and armor tinting, but the additions were never anything substantial – nothing that served as additional story content for people to sink into. Fans of BioWare and Dragon Age were expecting the RPG to get some kind of DLC or expansion, (because why wouldn’t it?) but the studio kept quiet about it. Perhaps any potential DLC would focus on the multiplayer side of things instead?
To the joy of many, however, the game’s first DLC was revealed today, and it’ll focus on the single player. New Dragon Age: Inquisition players have yet another reason to keep playing after trying out the trial from last week, while older ones now have a reason to return. Officially announced through the DA Twitter account, the first bit of DLC is now known as the “Jaws of Hakkon.”
Very little is known about Dragon Age: Inquisition – Jaws of Hakkon, but a trailer for the DLC is set to debut tomorrow, March 24, on the Dragon Age YouTube channel. Additionally, if the teaser is anything to go by, it’ll see the return of Solas, so the DLC will either take place after the game’s original ending, or pull a Mass Effect and take place before the endgame. Hopefully, it’s the former of the two, and if so, people should probably finish the main storyline in Inquisition before jumping into Hakkon.
The most interesting piece of information regarding the DLC, however, is the fact that it’s coming to the Xbox One and PC (through EA Access) tomorrow, while a date for the PS4 is nowhere to be found. Details about the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game are also scarce, but it would be quite surprising if the DLC skipped the last generation entirely.
If anything, Jaws of Hakkon is most likely a timed exclusive, or the other versions of the DLC simply aren’t ready to release just yet. As said before, Inquisition is a large game, so who knows what bugs popped up for development. Expect details on at least a release date for the PS4 soon, possibly even tomorrow, alongside the new trailer.
Is single player Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC enough to bring you back in, or are you done with the game for good? For you new DA players, will the DLC’s impending release prompt you to finish the game sooner? Speeding through that game may not be the best way to enjoy it.
