'Dragon Age: Inquisition' Weekend Event Gives Players Multiple Chances To Earn Bonus Loot Chests

David Stonecipher

This weekend, multiplayer heroes of Dragon Age: Inquisition have a new task to complete. Like other weekends, agents of the Inquisition have a specific goal to meet in order to receive commendation chests and a victory chest. The announcement was proclaimed on the official Facebook page for Dragon Age: Inquisition earlier today.

Unlike other events, more than one commendation chest can be earned this time around. Arcanist Dagna is asking for enemies to be slain by a variety of different weapons and each set of enemies downed with a specific weapon will net the player a commendation chest.

"Arcanist Dagna has a theory about the Veil, and as her theories often do, it involves bloodshed. She's asking for wide-scale slaughter with a variety of implements."

The weapons in question are all the weapons included in the multiplayer, and they are listed on the official Dragon Age website. This includes daggers, bows, staves, one-handed axes, two-handed axes, one-handed swords, two-handed swords, one-handed mauls, and two-handed mauls.

The community Dragon Age: Inquisition goal, which rewards a victory chest, is different by platform as usual. PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One users need to slay 2.5 million enemies as a community while Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 users need to execute 750,000 adversaries.

Also, interested agents should note when the Dragon Age: Inquisition multiplayer event starts and ends. Kills must be made before the closure of the event to earn the commendation and victory chests.

"Mission: Weapon Testing begins at 10 a.m. PST Friday, March 20, and ends at 5 a.m. Monday, March 23."

Those enjoying the Inquisitor's story in the single-player campaign of Dragon Age: Inquisition might be interested in the hidden quest recently found. The Inquisitr recounted the details of the hidden quest and its hidden reward including a guide on how to find and complete it.

Will this weekend's new multiplayer challenge compel you to get back into Dragon Age: Inquisition?
