Fallen London and Sunless Sea developer Failbetter has announced Dragon Age: The Last Court, a browser-based game set before Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The Last Court is due for an imminent release and will be playable via Bioware’s Dragon Age Keep, a site where players can build up their character’s backstory in preparation for Inquisition.
Players in Dragon Age: The Last Court take on the role of the Huntress or the Scholar and will influence the region of Serault, an area at the edge of the game’s world Orlais, through a crucial period of its history, tasking the player with redeeming an ‘ancient shame’.
Gameplay involves managing a court, being careful with who you chose to be friends with and dealing with the trials and tribulations of your citizens and making decisions that will influence the future of the land.
The tie-in title runs on Failbetter’s StoryNexus platform, the same engine that underpins the popular Fallen London and is catered towards narrative focused browser-based games. Failbetter mentioned that it was teaming up with Bioware back in February.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is due for release on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe. The game will also be available five days earlier to EA Access subscribers, but only for a maximum of six hours.
