New gameplay and story details have been posted for "Dragon Age: Inquisition," which is being released on multiple platforms. According to a report from Gaming Bolt on May 11, a preview of the action role-playing game was featured in the latest issue of the Game Informer magazine. The article from the publication talked a little bit about the story connection between "Dragon Age 2" and the upcoming game along with some information on the squad command element.

"Dragon Age: Inquisition" will continue the war between the Chantry and Circle of Mages that began at the end of the second installment. The two warring factions ultimately decide to hold a meeting in an attempt to end the conflict. However, a rift of the Fade opened during this time, leaving everyone but the main character dead. The protagonist also received a mysterious marking that allows him or her to travel to and from the Rift while being a target for assassins at the same time.

More details were also posted in regards to the Skyhold, a location that housed the Inquisition. Players are able to send three different groups to take on missions. Successful completion should give the organization more gold, crafting items, stronger soldiers and other bonuses. Furthermore, the base of operations could also be customized.

The main character of "Dragon Age: Inquisition" can be built in various ways. Aside from the visual customization features, players also have two gender, four race and multiple class options to choose from. The story should differentiate in various ways, such as the type of romance options, based on the background of protagonist.

The development for "Dragon Age: Inquisition" is currently on schedule with a shipping date of Oct. 7 in North America. Although the action-role playing game should look the best on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, the gameplay should remain the same on the PS3 and Xbox 360 ports.
