Among the many details that have been revealed so far this week for Bioware’s upcoming third installment of their popular fantasy franchise, fans were given information on how long they can expect the story campaign of Dragon Age: Inquisition will take to complete. The developer revealed that it should take players around 50 hours to beat the game if they focus solely on the title’s main quest line, skipping all non-essential content, according to a report by PC Gamer on June 10.
This is expected to be the quickest completion time possible for Dragon Age: Inquisition. If fans stop to explore, take on the game’s many side quests, or engage in any of the provided optional content then gamers can expect the total number of hours that they spend inside the new Dragon Age title to increase far beyond the base time expected to simply complete the main campaign.
Additionally, Bioware revealed that the appearance of the lead character isn’t the only visual customization that players will have at their disposal within Dragon Age: Inquisition. The developer also revealed that fans will be able to customize their equipment so that their weapons and armor are designed however they want. For example, players will be able to customize weapons in order to change the looks of the item’s hilt, blade, and guards. Along with the option to select the race and gender of the protagonist, fans will be able to fully dictate exactly how they want their Inquisitor to look.
Dragon Age: Inquisition launches on Oct 7 for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. While a game length of 50 hours is already considered long by today’s standards, the game will give players plenty to do to further increase the time spent within Thedas. Dragon Age: Inquisition will feature the largest game world that the series has seen to date and is built around an emphasis for exploration and optional side quests.
