Morrigan has 'significant role' in Dragon Age: Inquisition, but not a playable one

Morrigan is back in town, but don't bother inviting her to your Dragon Age: Inquisition party. As creative director Mike Laidlaw told Game Informer, the Witch of the Wilds has an important part in the third Dragon Age chapter, but it won't be as a party member.

"That's going to disappoint some people," Laidlaw told Game Informer, "but I think it's important for us to be upfront about that." Lead writer David Gaider added, "It's not a cameo, she plays a significant role."

Morrigan didn't appear in Dragon Age 2, but Laidlaw said BioWare knew the core of the Inquisition storyline, which he described as the character's "moment," since "midway through Dragon Age: Origins." Morrigan's story was the focus of Origins DLC 'Witch of the Hunt," which Joystiq chief wizard Ludwig Kietzmann felt didn't address the game's big questions convincingly.

Talking of Origins, Gaider confirmed players' past interactions with Morrigan, romantic or otherwise, will affect "the various states" her Inquisition self can be in - Bioware producer Cameron Lee recently confirmed saves from previous DA games would affect Inquisition.

We'll have to wait until the fall of next year to see what Morrigan's been brewing, when Dragon Age: Inquisition casts itself onto Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
