Dragon Age: Inquisition GOTY edition is Epic Games Store’s free mystery game

The Epic Games Store has announced that it is giving away the 2014 Game of the Year winner Dragon Age: Inquisition for free. This promotion runs from May 16 to May 23, during which the Game of the Year Edition of Dragon Age: Inquisition will be available at no cost.

Typically, the store teases its free game offerings a week ahead but adopts a different approach for these special promotions, often featuring more high-profile games.

Dragon Age: Inquisition won the inaugural Game of the Year title at The Game Awards in 2014, beating contenders like Bayonetta 2, Dark Souls 2, Hearthstone, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The Game of the Year edition includes the base game and all three major expansions: Jaws of Hakkon, The Descent, and Trespasser, among others.

Released as the series’ third entry, Inquisition’s story sees players trying to resolve factional conflicts in Thedas while dealing with a demon invasion from a celestial portal. Players cross multiple regions to amass allies and power, constructing a force capable of challenging the demon threat. This Game of the Year version also gives access to all the story DLCs.

Despite being nearly a decade old, Dragon Age: Inquisition remains a celebrated and significant addition to the Epic Games Store’s roster of free games for the year. Normally retailing for $39.99, the game’s next free offering will once again be a mystery, with details to be announced in a week.

However, some spotted that it wasn’t available to download in some regions, causing them to complain on Reddit. One user based in Turkey, said: “Are you out of your mind Epic? Why Dragon Age not available in my region?”
