For those of us who have played through both major Dragon Age titles, there has been a slight worry as to how our save files would transfer over to Inquisition on our next-gen consoles. BioWare has produced an interesting way to allow players to customize their Dragon Age worlds in order to create the experience they want in Dragon Age: Inquisition.
“Within the Dragon Age Keep, you’ll be able to customize a Dragon Age historical world state to your exact specifications drawn from Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II story decisions. These include hero attributes, companion details, quest results, and more. Customize as much or as little as you wish. Then you’ll be able to import your saved world state into Dragon Age Inquisition at the start of a new game. For new players, the Keep will serve as a great way to understand the people, places, and events that shaped the world leading up to DAI.”
This is a great way for new players to shape their own worlds without having to rush through both titles (although you should still play both), and it’s a fantastic tool for players like me who have played through multiple games with different decisions. For example, if you want to change the outcome of the Landsmeet in DA:O, you can do so before starting Inquisition. While no other details have been offered, it makes me wonder just how important these decisions will be upon starting Inquisition, especially decisions that directly link to The Warden and Hawke.
