Bioware has already announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition will add player mounts to the series for the first time. Revealing a little more about the mount system from his personal Twitter account on Feb 8, Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw clarified that horses are the only mount that they wish to publically announce at this time while hinting that additional mount types might be revealed in the future.
After being asked by fans about the possibility of other mountable creatures, Laidlaw replied with the following.
Time will tell. Only horses are confirmed currently.
Additionally, the creative director also confirmed on Saturday that the current build of Dragon Age: Inquisition features a mount system in which the horses are an actual NPC which remain in the world when not ridden as opposed to merely being a creature that is summoned only for travel and then dismissed afterwords.
The inclusion of mounts in Dragon Age: Inquisition is likely due to the fact that the series’ third installment is said to feature a much larger world size. Bioware, however, is hesitant on refereeing to the map as an “open-world” space like Skyim as there are still linear transitions.
