Dragon Age: Inquisition is soon to receive its largest update so far, and BioWare wants you to help test it.
The fifth Dragon Age: Inquisition patch isn’t just about critical bug fixes; BioWare intends to add new content and features, which explains why it needs to beta test the update broadly before deploying.
On the BioWare Blog, the developer said it will open the next patch to “a select group of PC players via signup in a closed, developer-like environment”.
“You’ll be able to sign up for the beta program through the Keep in the near future, so stay tuned for more information.”
As for the patch contents, one of the key additions is the Black Emporium, “a mysterious underground shop run by an immortal proprietor”.
The Black Emporium offers “powerful artifacts and tools”, “epic weapons, powerful accessories, new crafting materials and schematics”. It also houses the Mirror of Transformation, where you can change your Inquisitor’s appearance.
Closer to home, party storage will be added to the Undercroft, so you can keep all your crafting supplies handy without maxing out your inventory. You’ll also be able to change the colour of your armour pieces, which is rad.
An auto-attack key will be added to the PC single-player, along with options to change subtitle size and shader quality.
