Play DA: Inquisition next week Thursday through EA Access
Hey, remember EA Access? That subscription based offerring from EA that will give you access to their games and early access to upcoming games? It’s like PlayStation Plus just within the EA stable of titles. Well, IF you’ve subscribed or are thinking about it, know that being an EA Access member will mean you’ll be playing Dragon Age: Inquisition next week provided you’re playing on Xbox One.
Inquisition is the next title to get the Early Access treatment from EA. The game is out worldwide on 18 November, but EA Access members will get it on Thursday, 13 November. This Early Access will give you six hours to spend with the game before the rest of the world. You’ll be able to create your character and start the single-player campaign. Co-operative multiplayer quests will also be accessible. Once the game launches properly on 18 November, and if you end up paying for a full copy (with the 10% discount EA Access members get), your Early Access version will click over and you’ll be able to continue your game where you left off.
Diehard Dragon Age fans will likely jump at this, but for everyone else: is this neat? Is this, basically, a glorified demo that you’re paying for? Let us know what you think.
If you’re frothing at the mouth for all things Inquisition, then head on over to this neat interview on GamesIndustry.biz where executive producer Mark Durrah discusses the influence Skyrim has had on not only Dragon Age, but the future of the RPG genre. It’s a really interesting read and well worth checking out.
