For more information, see the Dragon Age: Inquisition Multiplayer page.



4 player co-op (you can run with less than 4, but it will be harder)
Earn gold through missions/weekly operations and/or purchase platinum
Buy chests at the end of missions that contain potions, recipes, etc
No gear between SP & MP, they are completely separate, as are the economies
Crafting in MP is through salvaging gear you don't want then creating gear that you do
There will be an Inquisition HQ online, accessible via tablet, PC, etc to handle inventory and crafting on your MP characters
Twelve characters, four for each class (warrior, rogue, and mage), will be available at launch.

For more information, see the Dragon Age: Inquisition Multiplayer page.

#DAI Multiplayer Announced! Not connected to the SP game (ala galactic readiness), Free DLC, enjoy!

User
Does affect any of the single player story? I.e. Strength of the Inquisition to get better outcomes for ending/or other plots

Mike Laidlaw ‏@Mike_Laidlaw
Nope. No story impact, aside from themes.

John Epler ‏@eplerjc
To clarify, playing MP vs. not playing MP will have no impact on your SP experience.

User
@AarynFlynn count for SP so my question is, IS the MP going to have ANY effect on the SP at all?

Aaryn Flynn ‏@AarynFlynn
@User No gated content. But we do have some cool ideas for the future, even as we keep the experiences distinct

Mark Darrah ‏@BioMarkDarrah
And no, singleplayer content is NOT locked behind MP.

Ability Drain ‏@AbilityDrain
Since the characters work for our Inquisitor, will some of the items we unlock in multiplayer become available in story mode?

Mike Laidlaw ‏@Mike_Laidlaw
No, they're separate modes.

Ability Drain ‏@AbilityDrain
Thanks for replying. Ok, one more: will we get to meet some of those characters in single player? Or are they strictly MP only

Mike Laidlaw ‏@Mike_Laidlaw
More details later.

user
@IGN @BioMarkDarrah Please, can we actually have a Co-op RPG experience where we pick dialogue options and make open story decisions?

Mark Darrah ‏@BioMarkDarrah
@user @IGN Not this time. Its on the list for a later game, though

Patrick Weekes ‏@PatrickWeekes
Also, MP served as a fantastic testing ground that made certain our combat was fun and deep.

Patrick Weekes ‏@PatrickWeekes
It is wholly optional, but its inclusion absolutely resulted in a better SP experience.

User
MP doesnt have an impact on SP but does SP have an impact on MP? Like you can only play a mission once youve 'unlocked' in SP?

Mike Laidlaw ‏@Mike_Laidlaw
Nope. Consider them separate.

User
Hi Mike. In the DA:I MP, do you HAVE to have 4 players? Or can the missions scale down for 2 or 3 players?

Mike Laidlaw ‏@Mike_Laidlaw
You can run with less than 4, but it will be harder.
