Bioware games are generally big on providing players with choices and making them feel like those decisions matter. The developer’s plans to continue this trend with Dragon Age: Inquisition as the upcoming release will take into account all choices from the series’ first two installments to help customize the story of the new game to their experiences. Speaking to OXM on Jan 3, Bioware producer Cameron Lee confirmed that Dragon Age: Inquisition will even continue choices from DLC add-ons for the previous titles in the franchise.
The good news is that fans won’t be required to actually have purchased and played the DLC packs in order to enjoy this feature of the third Dragon Age title as the game will give fans the ability to answer all important past decisions that have been posed to players in past games through an included survey mechanic. Using the “Dragon Age Keep,” fans will be able make choices based off the first two games, all of their DLC, and even the flash game so that the story campaign of Dragon Age: Inquisition can be catered specifically to each player. This means that gamers won’t have to have played every piece of past content. Additionally, this will allow those picking up the next-gen versions of the game to be able to continue the series with their own decisions despite the fact that their old save files won’t transfer to the new systems.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will release later this year on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. The game is being built using the Frostbite 3 engine.
