Due to the fact that Dragon Age: Inquisition will bring the franchise to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 for the first time, Bioware is developing a web-based app to release alongside the game which will allow fans to set up their world state based on past decisions made during the first two titles regardless of platform. Up until this point, the Dragon Age Keep app has been the only officially announced method to prepare customized game saves but the developer announced on Sept. 1 that they are also working on a full save import system.
This is the first time that Bioware has stated their hopes to still allow proper save imports. Before this point, the developer has only ever told fans about the Dragon Age Keep whenever the possibility importing files was mentioned.
While Bioware is currently looking into allowing gamers to import their previous Dragon Age save files, there is no guarantee that the feature will actually be included. As such, there are currently no details on how the system would work. It is likely that fans would only be able to transfer their saves to the same platform which means anyone planning to get the game on a next-gen console would still be required to use the Dragon Age Keep to prepare their in-game world state.
Dragon Age: Inquisition launches on Nov. 18 for the Xbox One, PS4, and their last-gen counterparts as well as PC. The game was recently confirmed to feature a co-op multiplayer mode in addition to its traditional single player campaign.
