Gamers who have invested countless hours in the Dragon Age Inquisition campaign were waiting to see how the story could continue. There’s a decent amount of content in Jaws of Haakon but that doesn’t mean it’s great. If you are a true Dragon Age fan and have spent around 10 hours with the Jaws of Haakon add-on, you’ll definitely have the same opinion. In Jaws of Haakon, players are taken to a new region known as Frostback Basin.
The title indicates a frosty climate, but it is near the end of this DLC that the temperature starts to drop. The environment includes a large forest, and it’s filled with bending rivers, treetop camps, dark swamps and immense hills. Similar to the earlier gaming environments, you will notice that crystal shards and astrariums make a comeback. As a result, players are given a valid reason to search every nook and cranny of the map. The side missions primarily contribute to the major amount of time spent in Jaws of Haakon. Truly speaking, without the side missions, there is only so much you can do.
The story is quite simple in Dragon Age Inquisition Jaws of Haakon. Rumors have erupted that the remains of the last Inquisitor lay somewhere around Frostback Basin. As you’ve guessed by now, players are tasked with discovering the body. There are tiny revelations that occur along the way, ultimately leading to a might boss battle. However, it never gets quite interesting. It’s all pretty clockwork with the gamers retrieving items, flipping switches, fighting more capable opponents and The End.
If you are dedicated to the main story, you’ll end up finishing it in a couple of hours. However, if you want to extract the true value of this DLC, it is highly recommended that you pay attention to the side missions. If you are not a fan of gaining achievements and fetching stuff, you won’t have much fun completing the side quests. Most of the side missions lead to sub-par loot with some resistance boosts and stat boosts along the way.
