Will Dragon Age: Inquisition Have Multiplayer?

Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare has begun seeking out playtesters for Dragon Age: Inquisition. As such, they’ve sent a survey out to gather a variety of different folks to test the game. It’s stated that gamers don’t need to have experience playing Dragon Age to apply, possibly indicating that DAI can act as a stand alone installment.

One of the VERY interesting parts of the survey (question 13) asks participants to provide their impressions of the Mass Effect Multiplayer suite; a question listed separately from the core single player experience. Perhaps even more telling, a later question (22), asks players to rate their online preferences ie. if they enjoy competitive or cooperative online gameplay. Also note that all of the other questions deal with confirmed gameplay features.

If Dragon Age: Inquisition does feature an online multiplayer component of some kind, I’d expect to see either dungeon crawling, or more likely, a horde mode comparable to ME3. Either way, this is simple speculation based off of the types of playtesters BioWare is looking for. If such an emphasis is placed on multiplayer questions, it’s a good bet that DAI will include something of the sort.

    For the love of Zeus don’t buy this game people, you know full well they’ll screw you over time, and time again. Them adding in multiplayer should be a red flag, no real Bioware fan would want them to waste their time with tripe like that.

      Yeah, because all their single player games with multiplayer options were terrible – Baldur’s Gate I+II, Neverwinter Nights, Mass Effect 3. . . oh wait.

    I enjoyed past dragon age games and hope this one is as good as the first and better than the second.

    Welp… shoehorning multiplayer where it doesn’t belong soured me. Not preordering or purchasing later.
