So Dragon Age: Inquisition will have multiplayer - because of course it does. I don't quite know how to feel about it yet. Sure Mass Effect 3 had a good co-op multiplayer component with some staying power and DA: I's multiplayer will be 4-player co-op that looks similar to ME3's. For me, anyway, in the rock paper scissors world of multiplayer, co-op beats competitive all day, every day.
You can watch the trailer below and make of it what you will.
