The producer of “Dragon Age: Inquisition” has commented on the impact of decisions made in the previous installments on the series. In an interview with The Official Xbox Magazine on Jan. 3, Cameron Lee said that all of the important choices, including those made in the DLC expansions from “Dragon Age: Origins” and “Dragon Age 2,” would affect the world state of the sequel.
Bioware Montreal will be using an application called “Dragon Age Keep,” which gives players the ability to go through the story from the earlier entries without having to play the video games. Furthermore, the data from the program can be imported into “Dragon Age: Inquisition.” You can take a look at his comments below:
Yeah, so the Dragon Age Keep includes the ability to go through and set all these different decision and action points from the previous games and the DLC, and I think even one of the flash games. Coming into Dragon Age: Inquisition there's a lot of those decisions that impact the story and impact the world. The world is really a character as well if you think about it, and how that world is set up by the player as 'their' world is really important to us, so we wanted to make sure that... You know, one of the primary reasons that we did the Keep, is that we'll know when the player sets up their world that's the world they get. So you will see a lot of those impacts coming through, both very large and very small as well.
Cameron Lee was also asked about Bioware Montreal hiring multiplayer designers for “Dragon Age: Inquisition.” The producer replied by saying that he did not know about the new employment opportunities. However, he hinted that the development team is looking at adding multiplayer but the final decisions have not yet been made. You can find a set of screens featuring the software product with the slideshow gallery on the left side of this article and his response below:
I have no idea at all in terms of hiring, but you know, the Mass Effect multiplayer stuff is really good, so we've certainly looked at options like that, but we haven't decided on anything in terms of multiplayer at this point.
Bioware Montreal should have some time to implement multiplayer into “Dragon Age: Inquisition” since the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game won’t be released until later this autumn season.
