Dragon Age Inquisition GOTY Edition Inbound

Yesterday BioWare announced that the Game of the Year edition for Inquisition will drop next month.  For those new to gaming, Game of the Year editions typically come about after a game is massively successful (I don’t know if technically they must have won Game of the Year) & the publisher decides, “Screw it!” and throws as much extra content onto a disc as they can to wrangle in any stragglers.  They can actually be a bargain if the added content is worth it.  And based on what’s going into Inquisition’s GOTY, I think this is one purchase that will be well worth the cost.

Included in the GOTY edition will be:

  • The base game (obviously)
  • All 3 expansion DLCs
    • Jaws of Hakkon – explore the Frostback Basin to uncover the fate of the first Inquisitor
    • The Descent – explore the Deep Roads to find the source of earthquakes plaguing Thedas
    • Trespasser – the final & most recent expansion, conclude the Inquisitor’s story by finding Solas’ fate
  • All official add-ons
    • The Deluxe Edition upgrade that came included with the Deluxe Edition of the original release, which includes 3 mounts, new customization items for Skyhold, & I believe the Flames of the Inquisition bonus gear pack
    • Spoils of Avvar – item pack that includes 2 new sets of armor, several schematics, 5 new mounts & new customization items for Skyhold
    • Spoils of Qunari – item pack that includes 2 new armor sets & schematics, 1 new mount & new customization items for Skyhold

Personally, this sounds like a steal to me for those who haven’t bought the game or, like me, haven’t purchased any of the DLCs yet.  If I were to buy all this content individually today, the price would quickly add up.

$45 for base game (deluxe edition) + $15×3 for each expansion + $5×2 for the add-ons = $100

Considering the GOTY edition is listed on Gamestop’s site at the regular price of $60, that’s a $40 savings!  And if you’ve got the patient to wait a bit, the price may be even lower.  So yeah, I think it’ll be worth picking up for anyone who hasn’t already purchased the content.  Unfortunately, based on what I’ve seen, this edition is only available for PC & next gen consoles.  So gamers who have 360 or PS3 versions will have to stick with buying the content individually.

The GOTY edition hits shelves on October 6.
