Leaked pictures from Dragon Age Keep

One of my favourite things about sprawling RPG’s that span multiple games is that your save carries through, bringing with it the choices you’ve made and their consequences. I don’t think any would have quite liked Mass Effect nearly as much if that wasn’t the case. The same will hold true for the impressive Dragon Age: Inquisitions – but there’s a problem. Many will be playing this game on new systems. That’s where Dragon Age Keep comes in to play.

While there’s no fancy system to import save games from PC, Xbox 360 or PS3 to the Xbox One or PS4 that doesn’t mean those of you who’ve transitioned to a different console – or even from an old console to PC – won’t have your choices carry through.

The Keep is a system that allows you to remake those choices through a web-based front end, and then import that created save in to Dragon Age: Inquisitions when that game is out later this year. It means you’ll be able to fight with a bunch of menus and images instead of Dragons and Qunari if you want to continue your legacy in the next chapter of Dragon Age.

The whole thing functions as a questionnaire, asking you to select things that will have an outcome on the events of Inquisition. It does contain quite a  number of spoilers for the first Dragon Age games, so unless you’ve played through those games, you may want to give these leaked pictures  – and the tool itself – a miss.

Reminder: HUGE SPOILERS

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces. I am also the emperor of the backend

  • Brady miaau

    That is a very nice idea, I approve.

    I hope I approve of the actual game too. Hype, hype, hype.

  • http://www.themovies.co.za Rinceable

    APPROVED. Love it when you can recreate. I mean, I played ME 1&2 on a different profile and was able to recreate a character for 3 on another.

    • Kromas of City17

      I bought the Genesis DLC for 2 and 3. Still have yet to actually use them. :)

      • Matthew Holliday

        any dlc for any mass effect game is worth replaying the whole game for.
        fact.

        any excuse for more time as shepard

        • Kromas of City17

          I half disagree. The Genesis DLC is for Lazy people. If I want to play a new Shepard in ME2/3 I always start at 1. :P

          • http://www.themovies.co.za Rinceable

            Good man!

          • Kromas of City17

            The only time ill excuse the use of the DLC is if you lost your saves and even then “WTF why did you not back up to the cloud or at the very least a external drive??!!”.

          • http://www.themovies.co.za Rinceable

            Agreed. Unless you are playing Dark Souls 1, and you aren’t allowed to make a copy… OvG got to level 80 and the file corrupted, bye bye game! RAGE QUIT 9000+!

          • Kromas of City17

            AHHHH … the reason I never finished Skyrim. Stuff happens every now and then I suppose.

          • Nate

            Lazy? Lol, we are talking about playing videogames, right? Some people don’t want to replay the same content over and over.

  • Matthew Holliday

    Been waiting for more news on this, its been in the pipeline for a while.

    Looks similar to the interactive comic for Mass Effect 2 on PS3.
    that was awesome.

  • Sith JJ

    Interesting.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Decisions carry over? Jaaaaaaa…….. sorry, I’ve played ME & DA – they are the incredibly poor cousins of The Witcher when it comes to that.

    • Matthew Holliday

      honestly, i thought all 3 ME games did a pretty good job of it, in terms of relationships with characters.
      barely affects the story and doesnt make any difference at the end of the trilogy, but the relationships were just as important as the story in mass effect

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        They were fine, guess I’m still annoyed by how little previous decisions affected the story after the way they hyped it.

    • MasterXavier

      You are kidding right? Almost no decision was carried from The Witcher 1 to The Witcher 2, most were just a mention and some were actually annuled, let me guess you are one of those people that played only the second entry yet calls himself a fan of the series, I like the Witcher, both 1 and 2, they are great examples of how make choices matter IN-GAME, in import matter they are… well, the same as Dragon Age really, if anything the fact that Bioware is making the Keep so people who changed console or went PC can make and import their world state into Inquisition put them ahead CD Projekt Red, where the Xbone and PS4 players will have to use the preset background everytime.

      I’m looking forward to both entries, but you cannot say that TW is better than DA at the one thing they are not.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Sure I can, I just did… and you guessed wrong.

  • GooseZA

    I hope they have an options for, “shit, I can’t remember now – remind me?”

    I am seriously looking forward to this. Still only have 1 play-through on DA1 and DA2, so while I understand most options I have not “lived” them yet.

  • sidney ruddock

    it is interesting. oct. can’t get here fast enough.

    • Charl van der Merwe

      Sorry to tell you, but it has been pushed back by 1 month to november :(

      • sidney ruddock

        I just checked. Your right my man. If that’s the case then I wouldn’t be surprised if that turned into Dec. You know just in time for xmas. Money money money.

  • HisDivineOrder

    It amazes me that EA can’t finish this thing in a month. They’ve seriously delayed THIS? Their incompetence knows no bounds.

    • Charl van der Merwe

      Erm, EA is the publisher, Bioware is the developer, so Bioware would have to finish it, not EA.Also knowing the history of EA forcing its developers to finish games and release them with bugs, they can take as long as it needs really…

  • Marissa Janelle Moltzen

    I hope they do this for the next mass effect. I have all of the DLC for it and it would be a shame if it wasn’t like this.

  • Cyberats

    Great gameplay, hope for the old skill trees and equip ability for NPCs, the DA2’s sucked.
    Not many changes in story caused by player choice, I agree with other posters. Hoping this improves in Inquisition.

    • sidney ruddock

      If it does’nt that will drop the revenue share. Your right about DA2. Nowhere to go but up.

  • Charl van der Merwe

    THis is fantastic! I have never actually had the previous game STILL installed by the time the next one comes out.Great innovation by BIOWARE

    • sidney ruddock

      Innovation or marketing strategy. It’ll be a first for you and me both.
