Following the launch of Dragon Age: Inquisition last November, Electronic Arts has not released any sales numbers to show how well the latest installment of the Bioware-developed title has performed to date. Yet, the fantasy series was commended during an EA earnings call earlier this week after the publisher announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition was the "most successful" launch of any Bioware game thus far.
However, with no additional details given, it was unclear what exactly Electronic Arts was using as a measurement of success since Dragon Age: Inquisition sales figures are still being kept a secret for the Bioware RPG. Offering some clarity on the recent statement to investors, an Electronic Arts representative told GameSpot that the earnings call revelation that Dragon Age: Inquisition has been more successful than any other Bioware game was indeed based entirely in launch sales statistics. However, the publishing giant still isn't willing to reveal any specifics about those figures.
"Most successful based on units sold, but we are not disclosing that total."
Not only has Dragon Age: Inquisition apparently been a big financial success for both Bioware and EA, but gamers are clearly enjoying the game as they continue to rack up more and more play time. According to VG/247, fans have spent more than 113 million hours within the title's story-based campaign. That statistic, which was also announced during the recent Electronic Arts earnings call, only pertains to single player sessions of Dragon Age: Inquisition. The number would drastically go up if all multiplayer matches were also calculated.
To thank the fan base for helping make Dragon Age: Inquisition such a success, Bioware has decided to offer free music downloads from the game's soundtrack, as recently reported by the Inquisitr. For the next two weeks, Dragon Age: Inquisition fans can download the original tavern songs heard within the game. After being offered for free for an initial period, the tracks will then be made digitally available as paid downloads beginning on February 9.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is out now on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. While total hours of play inside the title's story campaign continues to grow, Bioware has still not announced any plans for future add-on content to bring more narrative or gameplay features to Dragon Age: Inquisition's single player mode.
