It’s been nearly a week since the release of the final single player DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition, Trespasser, hit consoles and PCs. Touted as a story-based epilogue, Dragon Age: Inquisition Trespasser takes place two years after the conclusion of the main game.
When Trespasser begins, The Inquisitor and the remnants of the Inquisition are called to the Winter Palace to answer a simple question: with Corypheus defeated and all threats to the living world apparently gone, will the Inquisition disband? Of course, shortly after Dragon Age: Inquisition Trespasser begins, the realm is again threatened, this time by a faction of the Qunari intent on punishing the Inquisition. A great plot emerges that threatens the Inquisition, its allies, and Thedas itself.
Dragon Age: Inquisition Trespasser takes time at the beginning, letting the player catch up with their allies and companions. As always with Bioware games, choices the player made during the gameplay of Dragon Age: Inquisition play out in the options presented in Trespasser, and the lives of the player’s companions.
Ultimately, whether the Inquisition remains intact or dissolves is up to the player. But really, the survival of the Inquisition is a small part of Dragon Age: Inquisition Trespasser. The meat of the story is the revelation of exactly who set the main story of Dragon Age: Inquisition in motion, why he did it, and what he plans to do next. In an epic conversation, Solas explains his motivations to the player, and reveals what horrors he plans to unleash in the future.
During the epilogue of Dragon Age: Inquisition Trespasser, the player can either commit to proving their former ally Solas wrong, or commit to stopping him at all costs. Either way, with the new Dragon Age Keep function, the player’s choice will undoubtedly have a major impact on Dragon Age 4. Solas isn’t the antagonist of Dragon Age: Inquisition Trespasser as many fans thought he would be, but he is almost certainly the antagonist of Dragon Age 4.
Eurogamer reports that after the credits, there is a scene in which the Inquisitor and their allies take stock of what resources they have. No matter what choices the player made, the Inquisition faces an enemy that knows their tactics and resources very well. Meaning the Inquisition has to prepare to lose, or find other resources. The camera pans down to reveal a knife in the Tevinter Imperium.
The Tevinter Imperium is often mentioned, but has never appeared in a Dragon Age game. Dorian, the Tevinter mage who served as a companion to the Inquisitor, will appear again, but everything and everyone else surrounding Dragon Age 4 is a mystery. And its likely to remain a mystery for awhile. Bioware is gearing up for the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda next year, and there haven’t been any announcements about a new Dragon Age title.
