Beginning now and run through Monday morning, Dragon Age: Inquisition fans can earn additional loot within the game’s new multiplayer mode by simply completing co-op matches. BioWare detailed this weekend’s special multiplayer event, which will offer both personal as well as community-wide rewards, in a post from the official website for Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Through the remainder of the weekend, every time Dragon Age: Inquisition users complete an online multiplayer match within the game, they will earn a predetermined amount of event points, depending on the difficulty of the match. Routine missions will award two points, Threatening matches will grant five points, and successfully completing co-op sessions on the Perilous difficulty level is worth 15 points.
Once gamers earn a total of 30 points at any point during the Dragon Age: Inquisition weekend event, they will be rewarded with a free commendation chest that contains random unlocks to use within the title’s multiplayer mode. Additionally, every player’s individual score will also be tallied together and if the entire Dragon Age: Inquisition community reaches a certain score, then everyone who participated in this weekend’s multiplayer event will also earn a second commendation chest.
The Community goal is separated by platform. Dragon Age: Inquisition fans on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC must earn a total of 75,000 points to complete the challenge, while gamers on last-gen consoles need to only acquire 20,000 points on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Since BioWare games are often known for the storytelling, the developer likes to provide a brief explanation for why players are tasked with each specific challenge in Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s various online events. For this weekend’s co-op challenge, BioWare created a small story that the player-run Inquisition forces are having a friendly competition with Orlesian troops to see who can be the most effective.
BioWare also revealed new multiplayer statistics on Friday that detailed what Dragon Age: Inquisition users have accomplished inside co-op matches. The details confirmed that fans were successful in completing the previous Dragon Age: Inquisition online challenge. Additionally, gamers are getting more skilled in the game’s co-op mode, as BioWare announced that there has been a 45 percent increase in the number of fans who are able to complete matches while playing under the Threatening difficulty level.
Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s newest online weekend event is now underway across all platforms. Besides keeping fans entertained with multiplayer challenges and free updates, BioWare confirmed at the start of this month that they have now started development of the first DLC pack for Dragon Age: Inquisition, as the Inquisitr recently reported.
