Switching to a fancy new console for Dragon Age: Inquisition, but still want to maintain all your personal history in the Dragon Age franchise? Don’t worry, Bioware is setting up Dragon Age Keep so regardless of platform you can have all your previous decisions impact your experience in Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Dragon Age Keep is currently in beta, and will basically allow you to say what decisions you made in previous games and then transfer them to the game, Producer Cameron Lee told VG247.
You can drill down to hundreds of decisions if you want to, or just the major ones. It’s up to you. And then you can bring those decisions into your game of Inquisition. It’ll automatically change the world based on that. The beauty is that if you’ve lost your saved games, or if you want to go from 360 to PS4 then you can do that now, whereas if you just used the saved games you wouldn’t be able to. It’s pretty cool
What if you don’t really remember and decisions conflict with one another? Well, Dragon Age Keep will account for that.
So we made an algorithm that will go back over all of these hundreds of choices and it’ll find anything in conflict. So it’ll say, ‘You couldn’t have made these two decisions: which one did you really make?’ It reminds people.
And if you are new to Dragon Age (or skipped II), is using Dragon Age Keep necessary for anything to make sense?
Realistically, it’s too complicated. If you haven’t played the previous games, you don’t need to go to the Keep. You can just get the world state as it is. Or, if you want to, you could go to the Keep even as a new player, and say, ‘Well, what are the big events that have been happening in the Dragon Age world?’ It’s just like a bit of an introduction. I think it’s a good tool for new fans and existing fans if they want to use it.
Sounds cool to me. If you want to check it out for yourself, here’s the link for the beta sign-up for Dragon Age Keep. Dragon Age: Inquisition is hopefully coming out November 18th.
