The biggest collector’s bundle being offered for Dragon Age: Inquisition, will only be for fans who want physical memorabilia as the collection doesn’t actually add any additional game content than what can be found in the smaller deluxe edition. Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw confirmed on May 14 that the newly announced Inquisitor’s Edition won’t have exclusive in-game content of its own.
The Inquisitor’s Edition of Dragon Age: Inquisition will be the largest edition offered for the next installment of Bioware’s popular fantasy series but it won’t contain any actual exclusive in-game features, While it will come with all of the DLC that is also being offered as part of the digital deluxe edition, the Inquisitor’s Edition won’t feature any additional game content.
The developer is instead focusing to make the $170 Inquisitor’s Edition be of interest to those seeking physical collectables. Bioware knows that not all gamers are interested in such collector’s bundles and didn’t want to gate in-game content behind the massive purchase.
Instead, the Inquisitor’s Edition includes a cloth map of Thedas, Dragon Age themed tarot cards, an Inquisitor’s badge, Orlesians Coin, and more. Additionally, The Inquisitior’s Edition also comes with a full copy of the Dragon Age: Inquisition deluxe edition.
While the large Inquisitor’s Edition of the game doesn’t add any extra in-game content, the deluxe edition of the game does offer bonus digital content. Those who purchase the smaller collector’s edition will receive exclusive in-game weapons, armor, and mounts. The deluxe edition also comes packed with the games soundtrack and a special throne for players to sit upon inside the Inquisitor’s in-game base of operations.
Releasing on Oct 7, Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3. Like many current projects from publisher Electronic Arts, the game is being developed using the Frostbite 3 engine.
