Fans of Bioware’s popular fantasy franchise have now seen several trailers for Dragon Age: Inquisition that have featured a male lead character, but the game will also allow gamers to play as a female Inquisitor. However, that choice of a female character has remained unrepresented in the title’s videos until now. Bioware’s Aaryn Flynn shared a new trailer of the game on June 12 that is narrated by a female Inquisitor who can be heard introducing many of the new companion characters.
The video provides players with their first example of how one of the optional voices for female characters will sound in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Before the release of this trailer, fans have heard one of the mail voices on multiple occasions but Bioware had never before shared any of the Inquisitor’s female voices. Both genders will two different voice options for players to choose between so there is still a second voice for both genders that has yet to be revealed.
In addition to featuring the voice of the female Inquisitor, the new trailer also showcases four of the title’s companion characters. Players are given a brief look at Blackwall the Grey Warden, Sera and her proficiency with a bow, the qunari named Iron Bull, and the fashionable Vivienne.
Players will be able to adventure with a party of any three companion characters who will help them in their battles. Dragon Age: Inquisition includes five other companions in addition to the four detailed in the new trailer. Among the remaining NPC party members are at least two returning characters as fans will remember Varric and Cassandra from Dragon Age II.
Releasing across two console generations, Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch on Oct 7 for the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The choice of gender isn’t the only option that players will be given to customize the game’s lead character either. Fans will also be able to select the race and class of the Inquisitor within the series’ upcoming third installment.
