Will we be able to direct import saves into the Keep?
Unfortunately we won’t be able to directly import saves. However, over 300 choices are accounted for in the Keep, so you’ll be able to recreate your Dragon Age universe down to the details.
Do I have to pay to use the Keep?
No, the Keep is online only and is free for everyone. All you need is an Origin ID to log in.
What about if I played all Dragon Age games/DLCs on the same platform?
Nope, it still won’t direct import. But, if you played different Dragon Age games or DLCs on different platforms then the intention is for the Keep to recognize that regardless of how/where/what/when you played. However, you do not need to have played DLCs to set any choices on Keep related to them.
Can I have more than one world state?
Yes, you can create and save up to 5 world states in the Keep. So for example, if you want to create a Darkest Timeline where everyone dies, you can.
Is there a character creator?
Sadly not. The Keep will attempt to recognize your Wardens and Hawkes from previous playthroughs so they can be reflected as part of your history, but you won’t be able to edit appearances or customize new characters, as that information is not carried forward to future titles.
How will Dragon Age: Inquisition know what choices I have made in the Keep?
There is a World State Manager in the Keep that allows you to mark a world state for import into Inquisition with the click of a button. When you start a new game in Dragon Age: Inquisition you will then have an option to import from Keep. It’s that easy!
Will the Keep work on tablet or mobile devices?
Yes! You can take the Keep with you on the go for instant world state creation and changes.
Do I need to use the Keep before playing Dragon Age: Inquisition?
No, visiting the Keep is not mandatory before playing Inquisition. There is a default world state in the game that will load if you haven’t exported one from the Keep. But if you would like Inquisition to reflect your existing Dragon Age universe, it is recommended you visit the Keep first.
Is it just going to be a giant checklist?
Nope. That’s all we’re going to say about that.
Does every choice in the Keep impact Dragon Age: Inquisition?
Not every choice will impact your playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition, however this means we can accommodate importing for future Dragon Age titles.There is also something to be said for faithfully capturing what you did in previous games for the record, regardless of whether that is reflected in a future title.
When is the Keep being released?
The Keep will be live and open to everyone about a month before the launch of Dragon Age: Inquisition. So likely some time in October. The exact date is still to be determined, based on the results of the beta feedback.
Will the Keep take classes/specializations into account for my hero?
Classes, race, gender and origin story are taken into account for your hero, yes. However, specializations are not. As the Keep continues to grow and evolve, it may be something added in the future, but currently its focus is on hero data that impacts the world choices.
Are there explanations/context for choices?
Yes, there will be some context and backstory available to help newcomers or to jog your memory when making a choice in the Keep.
Will your Dragon Age: Inquisition playthrough decisions be directly imported into the Keep, or will you have to go back and select them again?
If you are online while playing Dragon Age: Inquisition (or the next time you go online), your story choices will be sent to the Keep.
