Dragon Age: Inquisition digital deluxe includes soundtrack, mounts

Word on a proper collector's edition for BioWare's latest game should be coming soon.

Players looking to get a slightly more robust version of upcoming BioWare RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition have at least one option open to them, as Electronic Arts today announced the PC digital deluxe version.

For a $10 premium--this version is priced at $69.99 on Origin--players get a variety of digital goodies. Those include a digital soundtrack and unspecific "digital content" still to be announced, as well as the Flames of the Inquisition DLC pack (consisting of new weapons, armor, and a mount) that will be offered to those who preorder the standard version of the game.

Also included are three items to help set you apart in the world of Inquisition: a throne made from a dragon skull called the Skyhold Throne, a horned mount called Red Hart Halla, and a Bog Unicorn mount, which is hopefully more intimidating than it sounds.

A proper physical collector's edition of Inquisition has yet to be announced, though BioWare continues to indicate one is coming. The official Dragon Age Twitter account sent out a tweet today saying an announcement regarding the collector's edition will be made in the "next few weeks." It also told fans eager to preorder the game today to hold off a bit longer if they were interested in the collector's edition.

One day after the game's box art was revealed, we learned today that Inquisition will arrive on all platforms --Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC--on October 7. While the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions won't look as good as the others, BioWare says the gameplay itself hasn't been compromised in order to work on those systems.

For more on Inquisition, check out GameSpot's newly published interview with executive producer Mark Darrah.

ohoh...and there I was hoping ...  fool me once but not twice.

I haven't looked forward to a game so much since Skyrim.


It was disappointing how little effort went into DA2, but I still enjoyed playing it.

 I loved DA:O, hated DA2. I hated the rush jobs that I pervasive EA put on ME3 and BF4.  I have since sworn that I will never pre-buy another EA game again.


BTW, they had said they were taking their time with this game and it would be released in Fall.  Now they have put a date to it in early Fall.  Only time will tell if EA is rushing another game out the door before it is really ready.


Other folks can figure out if it is a &^*^&%^$& mess or not.  I'll wait and buy it at discount.


One of these days EA may die.  Hopefully.

I am not big on collector's editions and nothing here changes my opinion on that.

@manonfiya  People don't yet understand there will almost always be digital deluxe and collectors edition.

Trying to launch the game on that many systems?? Im sorry there is no way in hell that they didn't make serious compromises and sacrifices on the game quality, to make it similar across the board. The 360 and ps3 aint just graphically inferior they computationally inferior too . That means the Ai, pathfinding, exploration, freedom , game size, load screens etc etc. Yes they can decrease the textures and effects to make it work on the old gen, but theres more to it than that.


The new generation could bring more to the table than just improved graphics. The new systems and new engines  for PC, promised more freedom and better AI, a more rich and dynamic world, its highly unlikely they can take advantage of that if they have to develop the same game for old gen, without making a completely different game. They should have not bothered with a 360 and ps 3 versions seriously. I mean the game coming out in october (most likely it will be delayed til december) by then everyone will either have got the pc they wanted or a ps4/xbone. Bad decisions.

After DA2 this NO WAY I will pre-order or jump on it in the first day with silly DLCs on the top. The Informed Gamer Gameplan:

a) Wait for it to launch;

b) Ignore the early hyped reviews;

c) Start reading forums and player comments\reviews about bugs;

d) Wait for the patches;

e) Wait for the discount;

f) Buy the game when the dust settles and the hype is flushed down the toilet of shamed incomplete ripoffs.

I'm not getting friggin digital edition. I am going to play this, though. I stayed far away from lazy Dragon Age 2

I honestly think my expectations for this game are so low by now that they would have to work really hard to disappoint me.

And no EA game is complete without a Day One DLC. Mounts eh? Trying to beat Skyrim Horse Armor?

Looks awesome.  The visual motif reminds me a bit of Dark Souls.

65 dollars via indian rubie, jacked the price up over there in india, I'm sure they aren't happy.

Oh look, Deluxe edition with a crap load of digital content cut from the game and charged for more money, fuck off EA.

@kyubi678  Are you kidding? This is bioware and EA. Of course its an origin exclusive.

Shelledfade1
Shelledfade1

@TalSet_11 @Shelledfade1 @kyubi678  back then, origin didn't exist.

It's why DA:2 isn't available on steam

Devils-DIVISION

Yeah. I wouldn't buy it either if it was only available on Origin for PC. Lucky I've got a PS4 though. Hopefully the collectors edition will offer a statue of sorts.

@Shelledfade1 I still got the steam version when it was available. I play it every so often to say fuck you to EA but then the game starts to piss me off too much so I got to quit.

And still AUD $80 for the standard and AUD $90 for the digital deluxe. May have to finally look into getting one of the VPN services and bypassing this stupid Australia tax.

The fact that it is also on last gen systems has me somewhat disappointed. I would think that the old consoles are limited in what they could have in a game (not just graphics).


Could the old consoles hold back or limit the game?

@ggsimmonds  Of course, there is only so much you can do with 9 year old hardware and maintain playable framerates

razor_rj

@ggsimmonds dont say bullshit, its on frostbyte, only the graphics will be downgraded on consoles, just like bf4, the maps willl obviously carry some hidden loading scheme,so size wont be a problem

Zloth2
Zloth2

@razor_rj @ggsimmonds Yeah it will.  Hidden loading schemes are fine for areas that don't matter but areas that do can't be popping in and out of existence. That means they will need to design a game were everything that's somewhat distant doesn't matter - and it will need to stay that way on the next gen hardware or balance will get thrown off.

Still don't understand why digital downloads are the same price as physical copies. Rather pay the same for a physical copy and save my internet download quota on something else.

razor_rj
razor_rj

@brucies_bubbles you are paying for their servers and the comodity of downloading as long as you like, as long as they have the title on. whereas a broken disc you have to find and cash for the game again. thats is what i got from their statment once, still 10 bucks wouldnt hurt them

Zloth2
Zloth2

@razor_rj @brucies_bubbles Ten bucks wouldn't hurt them but it would DESTROY the retail world.  If the publishers let the digital distribution folks sell the games for the lower price, the retail stores will revolt and refuse to sell the game at all.  Digital isn't popular enough to let the retail stores go.

Yet.

razor_rj
razor_rj

@Zloth2 @razor_rj@brucies_bubbles sorry but steam sales and many other online distributors promotions says otherwise, i've seen good games selling for 10 bucks in steam, in teh same year or after a year of release, and good games too. i mean i bough the WHOLE tomb raider franchise for 15 dolares, whereas the new game was launched mere 8 months before this promotion.

brucies_bubbles

@razor_rj When you can buy a brand new game $20-30 cheaper on day one, in a physical shop or online shops than digital, there is something defintely wrong with the medium. I've also seen the case where 3 months later the game is 3x the cost on digital than physical. Then again Steam prices aren't too bad. Have to be pretty rough to break disc's. Never broken any disc's since I started buying them over 20 years ago.

Zloth2
Zloth2

@razor_rj @Zloth2@brucies_bubbles Sure, months later - or even one month later.  The retail shops make the vast majority of their sales in the first few weeks.  After that, digital distributers do start dropping prices.  Retailers do, too, if they need to clear shelf space for some other new game coming out.

Well, this is already off to a bad start. Digital content only available from buying a premium version?


Bioware, you said you were going to stop it with Day one DLC. Just tossing it into a pricier "premium" version isn't any different.

 I'm buying it. Dragon Age: Origins was one of my favorite RPG's. I put at least 400 hours into it. Will do the same for this one.

Evanduil

@vladric 400 hours what the actual fuck? There wasn't even close to enough of that game to warrant even 100. 

Shelledfade1

@Evanduil @vladric  the DA: origins ultimate edition, is easily 140 hours.

Hated DA from day one, this doesn't look any better. *Yawn* Call me when Witcher 3 or Shadow of Mordor launches
