Dragon Age: Inquisition Receives Game of the Year Edition

Considering how many Game of the Year awards it had won (including coming a very respectable second in our very own GameSided Game of the Year 2014 awards), a Dragon Age: Inquisition Game of the Year Edition was inevitable. Surprisingly, it took almost an entire year for it to get done, as the Dragon Age Youtube channel just posted an official announcement trailer earlier today.

Coming to the PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 6, 2015 (sorry, prospective owners with a PS3 or Xbox 360), Dragon Age: Inquisition – Game of the Year Edition comes with all three expansions; The Descent, Trespasser and Jaws of Hakkon. Additionally, it comes with a deluxe upgrade bringing spoils of the Avvar and spoils of the Qunari as bonus DLC item packs. Essentially, the bundle contains everything that made it the choice of over 130 game of the year awards last year, plus the post-release content that wasn’t taken into consideration then.

What’s odd about this announcement is the timing. It comes about two weeks in advance of its October 6th release date, which is not a lot of leadup for a repackaging of one of 2014’s better titles. Furthermore, Dragon Age: Inquisition itself was released on November 18th last year, marking 11 months later. Compared to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, which had shorter post-launch content legs and a Game of the Year Edition ready for May, I’m not sure if the timing is right for EA. October and November are going to be stacked, and re-releasing another 60+ hour long game might be a bit overkill.
