For many, the weekend has begun and with another weekend comes another Dragon Age: Inquisition multiplayer operation. This weekend, agents are tasked with completing the “Highly Decorated” operation. By completing specific goals during the event, players can earn free chests with random weapons, potions, or even armor in them.
BioWare, the developer of Dragon Age: Inquisition, notified players via social media on the new operation. An announcement was made via the series’ official Facebook page that points out the duration of operation “Highly Decorated.” Players can participate in the event from April 17 through April 20.
The goals for the event are separated by platform as usual. The personal agent goal, which rewards a Commendation Chest, is to earn 100 medal points over the weekend. The community goal is also to earn medals but differs depending upon the platform on which Dragon Age: Inquisition is being played. Playstation 4 players must unite to earn 400,000 medals while Xbox One and PC share a 200,000 medal goal. Last generation players on the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 must earn a total of 50,000 medals to receive their Victory Chest.
Medals in the multiplayer of Dragon Age: Inquisition are worth different amounts depending on their rating. Gold medals are worth 15 points, silver medals are worth five points, and bronze medals are worth just one point. Getting gold medals will get the goal done more quickly, but thankfully players will not be required to earn just gold medals. Although the mode is co-operative, other players can often stop each other from earning some gold medals like those for kill streaks or even weapon kills. Assigning point worth to each rank of the medals will allow more players to complete their agent goals, and probably, encourage them to work on the community goal.
As with each multiplayer weekend event in Dragon Age: Inquisition, a brief explanation on why agents must complete their goal is provided on the official website. Although these might provide a bit of extra lore to the game, multiplayer remains completely separate from the single-player campaign of Dragon Age: Inquisition.
“Before they return to Minrathous, the Inquisition will be hosting a banquet for the visiting Tevinter dignitaries, and all our most decorated veterans will be invited to attend. It would make an excellent impression on our guests if we had a great many such veterans wearing an array of medals in attendance…”
Players enjoying Dragon Age: Inquisition on Playstation 4 and Xbox One might be wondering if the first two games in the series might be remastered for this generation of consoles. As the Inquisitr recently reported, Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah stated that the developer is not currently working on a remaster. Darrah, however, does not rule out the possibility completely.
