Dragon Age Inquisition Romance: Solas Limited To Female Elf Players, Game Length Estimate 80 Hours
Are you all excited for November yet? What a stupid question, of course you are! Now, BioWare writer Patrick Weekes has let slip some tidbits on Dragon Age: Inquisition's length and a (for BioWare) relatively odd romance choice.
Weekes tweeted out that even though he is not a completionist player at all, he finished the third installment of the Dragon Age franchise in about 80 hours. He did also add that while he's not a completionist, he didn't rush through it either. That would make it seem like an "average" playthrough then could be around 80 hours.
In other, saucier news - and of the type that true BioWare fans eagerly await, of course - Mark Darrah, also of BioWare, confirmed that while the elf party member Solas will be a romance option available only to other elves, and female ones at that. After the "anything goes" vibe that Dragon Age 2 went for with its romances, this seems terribly restrictive. Darrah nonetheless promises Solas' romantic preferences will be justified by the story.
BioWare is quite well known for being an LGBTQAI-friendly gaming company, so it's probably too early to get upset about this. Let's just see how it plays out in the 80+ hours we'll spend with the apostate elf!
Dragon Age: Inquisition will be released on October 7 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
