Mass Effect 3
Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U
Cooperate with up to four players to complete different objectives.
Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition will have an expansive single-player campaign but interestingly, it will also have multiplayer. And not just any multiplayer – it will be a separate co-op mode similar to Mass Effect 3 in which four players team up to battle across a single 20 to 30 minute session.
It won’t quite be Horde mode like Mass Effect 3 but there will be five checkpoints with different conditions for winning. Gameplay will be in real time and you’ll be able to customize your character to suit different roles. There will be three environments – the Elven Ruins, Tevinter and Orlesian Palace – to compete in, and they will have randomly generated objectives.
Nine heroes will be available at launch with three mages, three rogues, and three warriors to choose from. You’ll be able to earn different currency to pick up various item packs, which are random just like in Mass Effect 3 (so you won’t always get what you want). And yes, you can just real world money to buy currency.
There will be more DLC in the coming months for multiplayer which will add new characters and levels. Dragon Age: Inquisition will be out this November for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3 so we’ll see how the multiplayer plays out.
