Dragon Age: Inquisition will have four player co-op

After the success of Mass Effect 3's co-op multiplayer, Bioware has announced that it will be implementing a similar system in the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition. You'll be able to team up with three friends, choosing from 12 characters across three classes, to tackle what the developer describes as "an action-packed dungeon-crawling four-player co-op experience".

"Following the success of Mass Effect 3's multiplayer mode, Dragon Age multiplayer includes fast-paced matches requiring strategic team gameplay while adding Inquisition's tactical class combat and extensive loot and crafting systems," said BioWare's announcement.

There will be one major difference from Mass Effect 3 though. "Our goal with Dragon Age multiplayer is not to affect your single-player campaign," Bioware explains, referring to the way success in Mass Effect's co-op matches contributed to your chances of victory in the main storyline. "We simply want to give our fans the chance to play with their friends for the first time in the Dragon Age universe."

This means that items and experience earned in co-op won't be transferable from multiplayer to single player, but you will learn useful combat tricks along the way. "If you play Dragon Age multiplayer, you will learn how each class plays a different role in combat, how different skills work, and how your party composition can give you a tactical advantage on the battlefield," says Bioware.

Dragon Age: Inquisition launches on November 21st for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
