Like the two earlier entries in the role-playing franchise before it, Dragon Age: Inquisition will let players control a squad of NPC companions. However, the third installment of the Bioware series will go one step further by giving players hundreds of inquisitor agents to issue commands to. According to a report by Official Playstation Magazine on Jan 3, a recent demo of the game illustrated exactly how fans will be able to command their in-game army to fit their own needs.

The demo showed off the aftermath that resulted after capturing an enemy keep. By defeating the faction who previously held the encampment, the inquisitor was able to take control of the keep for themselves. This is where the game’s army management system came into play. As head of an army, the player-controlled inquisitor could then decide how many NPC agents to garrison in the keep. Depending on how many troops are ordered to maintain a keep, different options appear for how to make use of the soldiers. For example, 10 agents are required to build a mine that will generate revenue to fund the campaign. Those looking to strengthen their foothold over an area can choose to command 50 agents to build a colossus that will boost morale and make a player’s army fight harder in that area.

These are just a few examples of how gamers will be able to utilize their NPC troops. It shows that players can expect to command an army made of hundreds of agents in addition to the small party who they will adventure with. How players decide to utilize their army will add another layer of choice that Bioware titles strive to provide fans.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to release later this year on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
