The Inquisition may have saved all of Thedas, and proved to be an organization everyone could respect, but what happened after that? Well, it looks like we’re about to find out. During a PAX Prime panel, Bioware revealed that ‘Trespasser,’ the third bit of story DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition, is set two years in the future. In addition to a September 8 release date, the developer unveiled a chilling new trailer (above).
“It’s something we haven’t tried before,” creative director Mike Laidlaw said. “‘Trespasser’ tells an entirely new story, set two years after the main game. The story explores what it’s like to be a world-saving organization when the world no longer needs saving.”
From the video we see that, despite being saved, the folks in Thedas aren’t all that happy. By the looks of it, the Quinari will pose a major threat to the Inquisition and we’ll be learning more about the Inquisitor’s mark. The kicker, though, is that the last few seconds of the trailer revealed that one of the game’s characters is going to make a dramatic return.
It was also noted that the expansion would mark the end of the Inquisition and “might just contain hints about the future of Thedas, too.” Seeing as it is considered epilogue DLC, you will have to complete the entire game before jumping in. That means you have a little over a week to do so, if you haven’t already.
Additionally, a massive patch is on its way for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions of the title. On top of fixes, the update will bring new features like a varied wardrobe for Skyhold and the Golden Nug, which “lets you ‘sync’ your collectibles across games after you’ve completed Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s main story”.
Laidlaw explained, “To take advantage of this, head to the Skyhold Undercroft post game and click the new Golden Nug statue. After you’ve done that once, every game that’s both a) online and b) on the same platform will have a similar statue added to the Undercroft and Haven. Clicking on that statue will sync your current game. This sync is bi-directional and additive, which means that any collectibles will be added to the online collection, even if the character doing the clicking is pre-endgame. It’s like new game plus…without having to start a new game.”
