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.
