Fans will be given a greater amount of control regarding the appearance of their adventuring party within Dragon Age: Inquisition as armor and gear that companion characters have equipped will visually appear on their in-game character models. This is a welcome change after Dragon Age II didn’t allow players to alter their companions clothing at all. Further revealing the fashions of Thedas, Dragon Age Executive Producer Mark Darrah announced on April 1 that the series’ third installment will have limited cloaks for select characters.
However, players won’t have any control over who can wear a cloak or not as they don’t exist as an actual gear slot on characters. Instead, certain NPCs will simply have cloaks. It is unknown if any companion characters will have cloaks but it seems unlikely at this time since they would have to adapt to any armor that the follower could possibly equip.
Additionally, after this week’s reveal that Dragon Age: Inquisition will introduce jumping and sprinting to the franchise for the first time, Darrah confirmed on Tuesday that players won’t unfortunately be able to swim in the game.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is currently being developed for Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. The next entry of Bioware’s fantasy series is planned to launch this fall.
