Report: Dragon Age: Inquisition contains 40 possible endings, spans 5 full regions

Dragon Age: Inquisition will contain 40 different possible endings, according to the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine (as reported by BioWare forum user “Jaldaris93”).

According to executive producer Mark Darrah, these endings are influenced by choices and actions taking throughout the narrative, and “will all be meaningfully different from one another. You won’t find 40 endings with only slight degrees of variation between them.”

OXM’s Dragon Age coverage includes a wealth of other information as well. According to the publication, there will be five regions to explore in Inquisition: Fereldan (the area from the first game), The Free Marches (Dragon Age II), Orlais, Nevarra (a land that allows mages more political power than in most others), and the Dales (inhabited by Dalish elves).

The companions that join with the player’s Inquisitor across these lands will all be on-disc—no characters will be added through DLC because according to creative director Mike Laidlaw, “how deeply enmeshed in the system companion characters are, we can’t just add them on the fly.”

Though Inquisition will boast the most customization options for the player-character in the series to date, there will only be 4 voices to choose from—two for each gender used across all races. The reason for this, Laidlaw informed OXM, is “a matter of file size”—more voices means requiring more disc and hard drive space. The studio is, however, experimenting with ways to differentiate the voices, such as altering pitch.

More details are available on Jaldaris93′s report of OXM‘s coverage on the BioWare forum.

Dragon Age: Inquisition launches on Windows PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One sometime this fall.
