BioWare is "undecided" on Dragon Age: Inquisition multiplayer

In case you missed it, Dragon Age: Inquisition went large on the site over the weekend, following unveiling of new footage and screens at PAX Prime 2013 in Seattle, Washington. Speaking to OXM at a preview event in London last week, producer Cameron Lee shed a bit of light on elderly rumours that the new RPG features a multiplayer mode. The short answer is: there is no answer, not yet. (Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Hopefully it doesn't have multiplayer. It seems like we can no longer just have single player games nowadays.

I know right

When Mass Effects 3 ending was leaked in November they had to delay the game to change things around. Now you would think in this time Bioware or even EA who is funding the game would give them the resources to spend on making up a great new ending which makes sense, getting the ending finished and also finishing things off like the cut Omega DLC

Did they do that.....no they didn't

They added multiplayer, the shoehorned multiplayer into Mass Effect 3 when other things needed to be done. Plus they forced you to play it to get a better ending

I'm sorry for anyone who liked the online but I found it boring, repetitive and in the end unnecessary.

So yeah multiplayer is not needed in these games, it's like those silly people who want co-op in Elder Scrolls or Fallout <sigh>

You're probably sad and lonely. Local co-op would be awesome in Skyrim.
-Foxtrot  +   480d ago
Really....an immature, personal attack comment for stating how bad co-op would be in Elder Scrolls. Guess since you stated it as "Skyrim" your pretty new to the series.

News flash, Bethesda can hardly do a single player game without bugs, imagine if they put co-op in SOMETHING which is NOT easy to do as you may think. They would be wasting dev time on a feature which someone like you would spend a few weeks on to show off to your friend and then get bored of it and go on something else.

So no...I'm not sad and lonely I just don't see the point of great single player games being ruined by any sort of online mode. What are you...new to gaming this gen ?

Stick to games built up for co-op like Borderlands or L4D for example and leave games like this alone for single player lovers. We don't need people like you ruining every game when theres already online games out there.

You do know that DA:I was expected to release this fall. Don't you?

Bioware got an extra year to create contents (and add features). Adding multi player would not require to much resources considering DA:I is running on a multi player first engine...

It's pretty much inevitable, that it'll have a MP in it. They're actually setting it up with the way this game is going.

I really hope there is 3 player local co-op. I want to play it with my brothers.

I don't understand the hatred against multiplayer games. Don't you guys have friends or family to play with?

Bioware should be focused on building a proper Dragon Age game instead of being worried about online features

Get EA to put more money in another team making multi if they have to have it. \bioware better focus on single player although ME3s multi was alright in the end
pandehz  +   480d ago
I did enjoy ME3 co-op mode.

Though I wish Bio makes a co-op campaign with exta loot and difficulty or something.

WE're heading to a new generation. WE need to leave taked on multi behind. That said, DA3 is clearly a technical behemoth so making a current gen sku is laughable. We're gonna see which devs will put up or shutup in the next year. Lords of the Fallen and Witcher 3 are full next-gen games. And some devs are just gonna tow the line and muddle both. I think both current and new-gen games will benefit from specified attention not bet-hedging.

we DO NOT!and i repeat,WE DO NOT!need multiplayer in dragon age inquisition.

that's like saying the witcher 3 needs multiplayer that would be a freaking waste of resources.
Roccetarius  +   480d ago
People told CDPR, that adding MP to Witcher 3 is a no-no. They listened to the community, and is focusing on the best SP experience possible.

I have no problem with them adding it to Cyberpunk 2077, because that game will have a wide range of customization as well.
BigShotSmoov007  +   480d ago
I pray they don't put a crappy mutliplayer in dragon age that no one will play long term. All they would be doing is taking away from the most important part of the game, the single player experience.
linkenski  +   480d ago
I won't have a problem with MP as long as the end product has a satisfying Single-player campaign. Bioware has several different teams, and they could make the MP portion in a different team than the one that's doing the SP campaign.
Summons75  +   480d ago
BS they already said that they were putting it in for more sales like mass effect 3 and EA already said no game published by them will ship as an offline game.

Well I see Bioware is still slimy as ever since they jumped into bed with Ea

I would love a CO-OP system.

Ppl can play through the story once and then second time when they know how things work they can play co-op with 3 others.

That way we enjoy both experiences, in one we have the rpg/strategic style of controlling 4 players and in co-op we can have a more action oriented approach where teamplay is victory.

Maybe even make the co-op more difficult with harder bosses , also maybe a progressive loot system. not exactly diablo but maybe something fresh. Like 4 players can go explore areas, hunt bosess etc.

I don't think competitive mp would work but a co-op system would be brilliant.
