Dragon Age: Inquisition to add multiple playable races, mounts

Nobody expects the Elvin inquisition!

The original Dragon Age: Origins allowed players to pick from one of several races as they began their journey, but its divisive sequel, Dragon Age 2, set players in the prescribed role of a h

uman named Hawke. The third title in the franchise, Dragon Age: Inquisition, will see the return of multiple player races.

This juicy tidbit was revealed by GameInformer. "Large and varied environments, customisable armor, and the return of multiple player races are just a few of the ways BioWare is addressing feedback from previous titles in order to shape a new future for the franchise," read the report.

Additionally, Inquisition will have mounts: a first for the series. These were shown off in GameInformer's video below, then confirmed by series executive producer Mark Darrah on Twitter.
