No party member DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition
BioWare has revealed that they won't be adding any more party members in the downloadable content for Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The game's creative director Mike Laidlaw revealed that, in order to add another party member in DLC, some of the data for it would need to be included on-disc when the game ships. With the controversy surrounding on-disc DLC they decided to avoid any hint of it altogether.
"Because of how deeply enmeshed in the system companion characters are, we can’t just add them on the fly, part of them has to be shipped on the disc,” Laidlaw explained. “[This] has led to criticism that we’re forcing people to pay for content they already own. It’s not the case, but we’ve decided this time to not go that route. There will be no DLC party members.”
Dragon Age: Inquisition will feature nine party members including returning characters like Varric. The game is expected to be released on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 this coming autumn.
