Windows Central has recently rolled out an aggressive Twitch livestreaming schedule. Tuesdays we play The Witcher 2, Wednesdays we play various Xbox One games, and Saturdays we play Xbox One games and give out big prizes. And now we're starting up a weekly Thursday stream to boot. That's a lot of chances to tune in for live commentary and gameplay while chatting with your fellow readers and viewers. It's like a live interactive podcast!
Our new Thursday night stream focuses on Dragon Age: Inquisition from Electronic Arts – chosen by our terrific and loyal viewers! We'll be playing Inquisition live every Thursday night at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific) for the foreseeable future. I'll also be writing a full column about the events of the previous week's stream. Even if you miss a stream, you can still catch up and follow along on the next one!
Update: The stream has now ended. Read on for the full replay video, and tune in next week for this week's recap and a new episode of our playthrough!
Tip: If watching the stream in another window, close this one to avoid audio echoes.
Dragon Age: Inquisition
The third game in EA BioWare's legendary fantasy-RPG series Dragon Age, Inquisition brings Dragon Age to Xbox One and Playstation 4 for the first time, as well as PC and previous-gen consoles.
Following the events of Dragon Age 1 and 2, the land of Thedas is plagued by civil war and strife. Worse, extradimensional portals have unleashed a threat that could destroy the world at large. Players create their own unique character from a variety of classes and races and then set out to bring peace to the land. To do this, they will head the Inquisition – a large-scale religious and political movement.
With hundreds of hours of gameplay, the choice of either action-based or strategic combat, and the ability to choose the direction and philosophy of the Inquisition itself, Dragon Age: Inquisition is a truly epic role-playing experience.
Join us tonight as we begin our journey towards unifying Thedas!
- Dragon Age: Inquisition – Xbox One – 42 GB – $59.99 – Amazon – Xbox Store
- Dragon Age: Inquisition – Xbox 360 – 42 GB – $59.99 – Amazon
- Dragon Age: Inquisition – Windows – 42 GB – $59.99 – Amazon – Origin
We'll be streaming Dragon Age: Inquisition for 90 minutes tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific).
To join us, please follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you'll need to watch from the Twitch website or a separate app to participate in our always delightful stream chat.
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi.
