More than a few of you likely considered BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition one of the finest games of 2014, what with its beautiful world, engaging story, and dynamic combat system. This week, BioWare dropped an unexpected jewel on us in the form of Dragon Age: Inquisition – Jaws of Hakkon, the first downloadable content pack for the award-winning role-playing game. It’s available first exclusively on Xbox One and PC at this very moment for just $15 (or save 10% with EA Access). And – no surprise – it’s well worth picking up.
Jaws of Hakkon is set in an overgrown wilderness populated by the Avvar hunter people, and tasks you with exploring an ancient Tevinter fortress that hides some rather intriguing secrets. Curious about the fate of the last Inquisitor and the powerful dragon he hunted? Well, you’re in the right place: It’s your job to find the final resting place of said Inquisitor, who bit the dust some 800 years prior.
You get to face off against new enemies, as well as gather new legendary armor and weapons across roughly a half-dozen hours of adventuring. Make it to the finish line, and you’ll a battle against an ancient god of war, hell-bent on destroying the world. Oh, and you’ll wipe out a cult in the process. What better way is there to spend a weekday night?
One thing worth noting is that Jaws of Hakkon is aimed at those who have played a fair amount of the main Inquisition story. You should be at least level 20 before diving in, and you’ll need eight power points to open up the expansion’s new area, Frostback Basin. Indeed, in many ways, Jaws of Hakkon definitely feels like a fresh sandbox for high-level adventurers to play in – a huge new area in which you can wander around and complete a pretty epic main quest, while also uncovering plenty of side-quests.
We’ve been having a great time exploring all of this new content and are already looking forward to checking it out with our other character. Pick up Dragon Age: Inquisition – Jaws of Hakkon on Xbox One today!
