Today Bioware announced a new DLC, The Descent, for their game, Dragon Age: Inquisition.
This DLC takes us back to the Deep Roads. The DLC will be released for PC, PS4 and the Xbox One.

You can find the announcement here:
http://www.dragonage.com/en_US/news/the-descent

A quote, then:

Quote:
Explore the legendary Deep Roads, but ensure that you come prepared. A perilous journey awaits underground, where vast, darkspawn-infested caverns will challenge the Inquisition like never before. Meet memorable new characters, learn more about dwarven history, and collect epic loot as you fight to solve one of Thedas's greatest mysteries.


There's a trailer which you can watch here:

If you want to dicuss this at the Bioware forums, Dutch's Ghost at the Bioware forums has made this thread:

Oh, that comes at a good time. I've just finished my game of DAI and am starting a new one. Hopefully the add-on can be added on in the middle of a game.

This time I'll try the Solas romance, but I gotta say, I have some suspicions about that elfy -- even before I finished the game last time I knew he had a wrongness about him. But come to think of it, decent old Blackwall turned out to be not much of a prize, either.

Haven't had time to play any of the new content, but the graphics look pretty sparkly. Early reports are that the DLC is great.

Me too! Apparently it can be played at any level, but I'm going to wait until I have my Focus up to the third level.

I have to say, though, I still prefer DA:O by far of the three games. DA:I is a great game, but the whole open-world concept means that the story takes second place and gets lost sometimes. DA 2 was decent, story-wise, but didn't have enough world to explore. DA:O has just the right balance between story, character, and exploration.

hagatha, why no to try Cullen? he is naive and sweet, pink romance. I think one needs to be human or elf to romance him.

Cullen is kind of sweet, but in keeping with my current character, a Dalish mage who supports the freedom of all mages, it's Solas this time. Though seriously, no woman in her right mind would go for him. He's clearly not what he seems, and I knew that even before I finished the game for the first time. Though, to give him credit, he does keep warning her off.

I played as a mage and I still went for Cullen successfully happydance .

Does anyone know how long the DLC is? Judging by the price should last quite a bit.

Oh yeah, most of the men in DAI will go for a comely Dalish Inquisitor. grin And Cullen does seem awfully sweet. He's the marryin' kind.

But from a role-playing standpoint, Solus is the only way. My Mage is staunchly pro-mage; she even banished those pesky Wardens. She always reminds people that she's Dalish and doesn't believe in Andraste. She wants to disband Circles permanently. She never believed that her Mark was from Andraste, and said so. Plus, she's been in the Fade, like Solus.

The DLC is apparently quite a decent size. I thought the Jaws of Haakon DLC was a good deal, too. Lots of content and some nasty high-level baddies (I never was able to kill that flock of Despair Demons, even with my level 25 party scared ).

I am downloading the DLC now, it is 2.2 GB.

I will play again as a human female mage since there are good tanks and good rogues.

mcc, the thing I like best about the party member choice is that you can actually play a party of all mages, rogues or warriors if that is what you want, since there are three of each.

I was hoping that Dorian, Viv and Solas would have an argument when I took them all out together with my mage, but they've been curiously quiet. Dorian asked Solas a couple of questions; that's about it.

The most interesting parties all have Cole in them, though, since he finks on people. He just outed Dorian in my last session, and previously he gave me pretty strong hints about Blackwell and Solas. I didn't play Cole much in my first game, since I was a dual-dagger rogue myself and chose the assassin path, but now I go nowhere without him. He's just too interesting. Next I'll see if he has anything to say about Vivienne and Sara.

hagatha, I have just restarted. I have not seen anything related to the DLC, have you?

Cole is more useful than one can imagine.
