With today’s launch of “The Decent” DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition, fans of BioWare’s epic fantasy series have now received two campaign add-ons that expand upon the game’s narrative. However, neither of these Dragon Age: Inquisition campaign expansions increased the title’s base level cap.
Rather than adding a higher level or giving classes additional skills, all of Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s single player DLC has focused entirely on creating new stories. This might not sound odd since the studio behind the game is well known for its use of storytelling in games, but that doesn’t mean that BioWare didn’t look into raising the level cap. Dragon Age: Inquisition creative director Mike Laidlaw revealed on Twitter that the team was simply unable to increase the maximum level.
@piotrbugryn @BioMarkDarrah Yeah, there were some technical issues with raising the cap.

As the developer pointed out before releasing game’s latest DLC pack, Laidlaw once again confirmed that BioWare is currently working on more add-on for the Dragon Age: Inquisition.
For now, gamers can delve into deep under the surface world in Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s newly released DLC. “The Descent” challenges fans to explore the infamous dwarven-built Deep Roads where the challenges increase the further the party ventures.
“Enter the Deep Roads to battle monstrous darkspawn, bloodthirsty creatures that dwell beneath the surface of Thedas. Explore ancient ruins and cavernous dungeons to find the cause of worsening earthquakes. In this new adventure, you will fight new adversaries, gain epic weapons and armor, and solve one of Thedas’ greatest mysteries.”
This week’s new Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC is the first paid content for the game that is only available on current-gen platforms. Due to system limitations of the older hardware, BioWare previously announced that they would be dropping support of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 with all future Dragon Age: Inquisition content. As a result, “The Decent” was only released on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
While the add-on is now available across all three platforms, BioWare has confirmed that the there are problems with achievements not properly unlocking on the Xbox One version of Dragon Age: Inquisition. The studio has informed fans that they know about the bug and are currently trying to find a solution.
In addition to the new paid DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition, the Inquisitr reported that BioWare also released a new update to the game that added a new playable multiplayer character to the game. Patch 9 also deployed a small number of bug fixes to all platforms.
Are you disappointed with the news that there probably won’t be a level cap increase for Dragon Age: Inquisition?
