Dragon Age Trespasser DLC asks whether you can end the Inquisition

BioWare announced the final DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition (opens in new tab)'s single-player campaign over the weekend, and it may give you your toughest choice yet. Taking place two years after the conclusion of the main story, Trespasser follows an Inquisition that seems to have outlived its usefulness as a powerful, border-crossing, world-saving organization. And yes, like the rest of Dragon Age: Inquisition's recent DLC, it's only for current-gen systems (opens in new tab).

A new threat emerges in the form of a Qunari invasion, but even this issue is more intimately tied to the Inquisition's continued existence than the all-consuming danger of the Breach. As its founder and master, it's up to you decide whether the Inquisition can or even should persist despite the widening cracks in its foundation.

Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw says this creates a tension similar to the Krogan genophage issue in the Mass Effect franchise: the good they can do in the war against the Reapers is put in sharp relief against the galactic threat they may once again pose. Unlike the lighthearted going away party that was Mass Effect 3: Citadel, Trespasser will offer a "smorgasbord" of lore as you embark on one last mission with your companions.

For more of Laidlaw's insight, check out Ashe Soriano's full interview, embedded beneath the trailer below.
