Dragon Age: Inquisition
Dragon Age: Inquisition is a third-person action RPG and the third installment in the Dragon Age series. Players select a race and customize the appearance of their main player-character, while also having control over other party members who join later in the story. Combat can take two forms depending on the player's choice, either through a more strategic system similar to Dragon Age: Origins, or an action-style reminiscent of Dragon Age II. Romance aspects to the game are now dependent on scenarios occurring in the story as dictated by the player's choices, rather than the previous gift and dialogue system.
Following the events of Dragon Age II, the mages and templars are now in the midst of a civil war. Meanwhile, a Breach has occurred between the the physical world and the Fade, spelling disaster for the land. Only the player-character has the ability to close this Breach, and restore peace to the world.
Dragon Age: Inquisition received positive reviews with an average score of 89%, praised for its environments, engaging characters, combat system, and overall improvement from the previous games, while the story was both praised and criticized by some.
If you have experience playing the previous games in the Dragon Age series, than you'll have a good idea of what's involved for the Platinum. The game requires a playthrough on Nightmare difficulty which is available from the beginning, and is only particularly tough in the beginning. There are also six missable trophies to watch out for. Otherwise, if you start the game on Nightmare and unlock those six missables, the Platinum can be obtained in one, long, playthrough.
Expect roughly around 100 hours, depending on strategies and how much exploration is done.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 have a separate list from those on the PS3. Also, the PS3 list only contains the Jaws of Hakkon DLC, while the PS4 list also has trophies for The Descent and Trespasser DLC.
You'll need to do a playthrough on Nightmare difficulty in order to unlock the Inquisitor trophy. Nightmare is available from the start, so if you wish to avoid doing a second playthrough, we recommend starting there. Nightmare will feel quite challenging in the beginning, but things will get easier. If you don't feel confident just yet, then select an easier mode, then a second playthrough on Nightmare.
NOTE: During your Nightmare playthrough, be careful NOT to press Triangle in the options menu, which will reset the difficulty to Normal and lock you out of the Inquisitor trophy.
During your playthrough, you'll also want to focus specifically on getting the other five missable trophies. These include both the On Burning Wings and The Brightest Of Their Age trophies for recruiting all the available companions, committing to a romantic relationship for the Beloved And Precious trophy, and the Belle Of The Ball for getting the full approval of the Orlesian court. Check out the Dragon Age Inquisition trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details on these.
Otherwise, simply play through the game while collecting Herbs and Materials, while also close all the rifts you come across.
Be sure to make multiple manual saves as you play, in case you accidentally lock yourself out of a missable trophy. Also, check out the Dragon Age Inquisition trophy guide links under our Links tab for detailes on other trophies you still may be missing and their requirements.
