Gamespot: Yesterday when I strolled onto the show floor of PAX Prime 2014 and picked up an Xbox One controller to play Dragon Age: Inquisition's new multiplayer mode, I felt like I had a pretty good idea of what to expect. I knew this was BioWare's attempt to take some of the co-op ideas it toyed around with on Mass Effect 3 and build on them in the fantasy setting of the company's other popular role-playing franchise.
The big difference, of course, is that there are no single-player ramifications for what you achieve in multiplayer, no galactic readiness or anything like that. Multiplayer in Dragon Age: Inquisition, I knew, was its own separate adventure. A bit of four-player questing through dungeons filled with enemies where loot and class-based co-operating is very much a focus.
