Want something new to listen to? Some tunes to make your living room, office, or local bar sound like a Skyhold tavern, perhaps? Good news! You don’t have to fire up Dragon Age: Inquisition just to get your fix – the team at BioWare has you covered.
Tavern Songs is exactly what it sounds like it should be: A collection of tunes as performed by various bards you encounter throughout the game. Sure, these songs are largely there to provide background noise and entertainment, but the lyrics also tell stories and can offer significant insight into what exactly is going on in the world of the Inquisitor.
We’ve received many inquiries from our fans asking where they can get these songs, and we’re thrilled that you’re enjoying them as much as we do. As our way of saying thank you for being the awesome community that you are, we’re excited to announce that for the next two weeks, you can download these songs from a desktop computer free of charge!
The soundtrack is downloadable directly from BioWare, free of charge before February 9th. After that, the studio’s planning on releasing the tunes via “many popular digital platforms”.
…if you’d prefer to spend your time singing songs in Orlesian, there’s a full French version of the soundtrack available for download, too!
Making the bundle even more interesting for the musically-inclined: The album also includes sheet music for each of the featured songs, so you can learn the words, the chords and the notes behind the haunting melodies. If you really want, you can perform and record your own version, and submit it to the Dragon Age Fan Celebration Contest (which yes, is open to Australian and New Zealand gamers as well as residents of Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada (excluding Quebec), Chile, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States (including the District of
Colombia)). The comp’s open now but submissions end February 16! Be quick!
Dragon Age: Inquisition is available now for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
