Dragon Age: Inquisition deploys its agents to console and PC

The inquisition begins! Sort of. EA has announced the release of BioWare’s latest role-playing game, Dragon Age: Inquisition. No one is being boiled alive, but players will be tasked with making difficult decisions that have an effect on the progression of their party and the storyline. As a rogue, mage, or warrior inquisitor, players must track down and stop those who are sowing seeds of discontent across the realm. To that end, agents can be assigned tasks, keeps looted, and strongholds attained. Multiplayer is also supported for up to four players in co-op quests that are set outside of the main storyline.

PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners are now getting their chance to take the fight deep into Mordor. The current-gen versions of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor are now in stores and up for purchase at digital outlets. The open-world action title, set between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, puts players in the role of Gondorian Ranger Talion, who is on a quest for revenge. After Sauron kills him and his family, Talion is resurrected by a Wraith Spirit and sets off to battle Sauron’s forces and discover why he was brought back to life. Each enemy Tailon faces will result in a procedurally generated encounter that is said to be unique to each player, with enemies featuring different strengths, appearances, and missions. And as part of their pact with the wraith, players will be able to control the enemies they encounter, forming an army of their own.

In addition to the current-gen Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Ubisoft has also announced the release of the PC- and next-gen-only Assassin’s Creed Unity. ‘Generation’ is hard to define at the moment, so bear with us. Rogue’s launch trailer was posted yesterday. Unlike Rogue, which follows a Templar during the Seven Years’ War, Unity is set during the French Revolution and follows Arno, a man who turns to the brotherhood after the loss of a loved one. Players will be able to traverse an open-world Paris, taking down targets as they gain new skills, customize weapons, and earn new gear. Unity also includes four-player co-op missions that reward special co-op gear, and players will get to utilize unique co-op skills based around agility, force, or stealth.
