Dragon Age Inquisition: The Descent Announced

Dragon Age Inquisition Descent

The next major DLC release for Dragon Age: Inquisition has been announced.

Titled The Descent, BioWare is bringing Dragon Age: Inquisition back into the Deep Roads, where players can take on hordes of darkspawn, and eventually reveal a secret that will "shake the world to it's core."

The news comes with a newly released trailer for the DLC.


Some of the footage shows returning darkspawn enemies absent from Dragon Age: Inquisition, including ogres and genlocks. We also see other underground goodies and a revamped Deep Roads for the first time in heavy detail.

The DLC will be released simultaneously on the PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. BioWare and EA have previously stated that all future DLCs for Dragon Age: Inquisition will be for current generation consoles only, meaning the Xbox 360 and PS3 will not have The Descent as a download.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is also going to be free on EA Access for the Xbox One, which means consumers can play the game for free on the system if they are a subscriber to the EA access service.

This will be the second major single player DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition. The previous release, Jaws of Hakkon, was a Microsoft-exclusive for a few months, being released in March for the PC and Xbox One. The remaining consoles received Jaws of Hakkon in May. Other DLC released for the game includes two free multiplayer DLCs, and the Black Emporium update, which added the titular shop into the game free of cost.

Currently, there is no price point for The Descent at this time, but the DLC will be released next week on August 11th. It is likely it will follow suit with Jaws of Hakkon, and be around the $15.00 range.
