Morrigan not a party member in Dragon Age: Inquisition

But "she plays a significant role".

Pivotal Dragon Age 1 party member Morrigan will not join your team in Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare has revealed.

She will, however - as teased by the DAI trailer (below) - have a role to play in the game.

"It is fair for people to understand that [Morrigan] will not be a party member. That's going to disappoint some people," Dragon Age boss Mike Laidlaw told GameInformer, "but it's important for us to be upfront about that."

"It's not a cameo," added writer David Gaider. "She plays a significant role."

BioWare is being cryptic about whether that role will involve tying up the plotline of the baby she conceived (probably - there were various outcomes) at the end of Dragon Age 1. That baby, she prophesied, would have the soul of an Old God.

"[Morrigan] has a human role in this plot," said Gaider, "which may surprise some people because they might only think of her as a plot device. She has this big plot she's involved in, and while that's true to an extent, I'm taking her to a human place. That will make sense after the fact."

How close your Grey Warden was to Morrigan in the first game will also play a role "of varying degrees" in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is due out in the autumn of 2014 on both current and next-gen consoles as well as PC.
