It helps to have friends.

In the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition , you can choose up to nine followers to join you in your challenging quest. In the latest video released today, we're introduced to three of them.

We see the powerful Warrior, the agile Elf, and the mystical Mage, all of whom have a distinct skill set and style of combat. Obviously, which allies you select will depend heavily on the type of hero you choose to be; for instance, I like the idea of a well-rounded, diverse party. Hence, if I'm a Mage, I'll want to have that Warrior and Elf to assist me. Of course, you could go with a party of all heavy-hitters, or something like that.

It's all up to you, really.
