Hug your companions in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Inquisition will have a level cap of around 25 or 30, a- shut up and talk about hugging already.


For the first time, Dragon Age: Inquisition will give players the ability to hug some of their party members.

BioWare revealed the news as part of a Q*A session on Raptr. Other interesting snippets include:

  • There are eight romances, and two are restricted by race. At least one of these romances will be a character who isn’t one of your companions or advisors.
  • Human Inquisitor character who aren’t mages will have a noble background, as in Dragon Age: Origins. Dwarven Inquisitors will be surface dwarves.
  • If you’re a Qunari, you’ll be bigger than a human but not as big as Iron Bull. You’ll be able to customise your horns.
  • There are lots of character customisation options, but no sliders for adjusting body shape. The character creator will include in-game lighting previews.
  • The approval system has been overhauled so you can’t spam your allies with gifts while ignoring their preferences. You can help companions achieve their goals to please them, but if you upset them they may leave your party.

There were plenty of other answers that weren’t focused on romancing and character customisation, but I’ll let you read about combat and other details for yourself. The Q&A has been helpfully summarised on Tumblr if you’d like to learn more.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early October.
