This fall’s release of Dragon Age: Inquisition will be the third installment of the popular fantasy series. With that many entries adding to the richly detailed lore that Bioware has created for the franchise, the games have managed to create its own mythology and introduce many mysteries which are slowing unfolding in the background of the title’s individual narratives. Speaking on his own personal blog on May 8, Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider discussed the nature of many of these in-game mysteries such as where their inspirations came from and where they will be going in future titles.

Gaider revealed that, for the most part, the ideas behind many of the overarching mysteries of the franchise came from collaborative talks between the creative team. He also confirmed that the developer does already know how most of these scenarios will end, even storylines that they don’t plan to wrap up any time soon. While story direction constantly changes over time, Gaider claims that almost all of the little mysteries of the Dragon Age lore have remained on track with what was first conceived.

For some conclusions to the series’ ongoing mysteries, fans won’t have to wait too long as Gaider admitted that he is excited to be able to reveal how some of these stories will end in this year’s Dragon Age: Inquisition. The rest will be unveiled in future installments of the series, but Gaider assures fans that the thoughts behind how each mystery will be revealed have already been written down.

Coming to Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation3 later this year, Bioware's Dragon Age: Inquisition has been officially dated to launch on Oct 7. Fans can now pre-order the game to receive exclusive bonus downloadable content for the game which provides access to new in-game weapons. Players will be able to create their own character by deciding the race, gender, and class of the protagonist.

Update: Further proving that the writing team behind the Dragon Age series already has many future plot points of the franchise already laid out, Dragon Age: Inquisition lead writer David Gaider revealed on May 8 that there are entire characters that have already been created but haven’t yet appeared in any Dragon Age title thus far. After being asked what Dragon Age character he most identifies with, Gaider admitted that the character won’t even be shown to players until a future point in the series.
