Free DLC and new patch come to Dragon Age: Inquisition today

Dragon Age Inquisition Livestream

We had a few complaints about Dragon Age: Inquisition, many of which were addressed in subsequent patches, but one thing nobody can complain about is a lack of things to do in the game. The game’s huge world is about to get even bigger as BioWare has released two new pieces of DLC.

The first, The Black Emporium, is more of an in-game shopping mall than anything else. Accessible from the War Table, The Black Emporium adds four stores to the game, allowing players to purchase powerful new weapons, accessories, and crafting materials, as well as change the appearance of their in-game character.

But the real meat of the DLC lies in the second add-on, the Dragonslayer multiplayer expansion. This allows players to craft an item called the Dragon’s Call that adds High Dragon battles, a new unique map, and three new characters, “an Avvar Skywatcher, a Virtuoso whose music is deadly, and Isabela, the Raider Queen of the Eastern Seas herself.”

Both pieces of DLC are available now, and while The Black Emporium is a relatively small download at around 200MB, the Dragonslayer add-on is much larger, weighing in at a hefty 3.85GB, according to Eurogamer.

In addition to the DLC, Dragon Age: Inquisition is getting another patch today. As is usually the case, the patch fixes a number of issues and improves stability, but it also adds the ability for PC players to sheathe and unsheathe their weapons. For more information, see the full patch notes.

The patch also provides some preparation for the upcoming arrival of the Jaws of Hakkon DLC on a few systems. The DLC has been available for some time for those playing on the Xbox One and PC, but is finally coming to the PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360 on May 26.

Unlike the Dragonslayer and Black Emporium DLC released today, Jaws of Hakkon expands on the Dragon Age: Inquisition storyline. Take a look at the trailer below.
