Using the DA Keep: Tech Specs

 

Are there any browser requirements for the Keep?

No, the Keep will work for all modern browsers. However, we do recommend visiting the site using Chrome on your desktop computer for your first time visit, as it seems to work best there. We are working on squishing bugs in other browsers in the meantime.

 

Is there a way to access the Keep offline?

Unfortunately not. However, you don’t have to be online for very long to create your World State and upload it to Dragon Age: Inquisition. Once that’s complete, you can disconnect from the internet and start playing the game. 

 

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.

 

Saves and World States
 

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.

 

What about if I played all Dragon Age games/DLCs on the same platform?

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.

 

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!  

 

Can I have more than one world state?

Yes, you can create and save up to 9 world states in the Keep (though we are looking at increasing that number to 10). So for example, if you want to create a Darkest Timeline where everyone dies, you can.

 

Are there explanations/context for choices?

Yes, there will be some information available to help newcomers or to jog your memory when making a choice in the Keep. If you click on the '?' button for each choice, it will provide context and let you know what happened in that particular plot. 

 

Can I share my world states with people not on my Friends List?
You'll have to add a friend first to share your world state with them. For instructions on how to add friends, see the tutorial

 

Your Heroes
 

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. 

 

Wait, so I’ll be able to see my Wardens and Hawkes in the Keep? 

Yes, but it’s only a 2D image that is uploaded to the site to act as an avatar for your hero. No other character data is imported into the Keep. We should mention that importing your custom Warden or Hawke will not have any impact on Inquisition. You can switch from one of the defaults in the Keep to your custom Warden or Hawke at anytime.

 

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.

 

Why are my heroes/accomplishments not showing up?
We're working hard to smooth out any remaining issues with the syncing feature. For more information, check out the 'how to' post

 

In Regards to Dragon Age: Inquisition

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Keep Beta and Beyond

 

When is the Keep being released?

The Keep moves to open beta starting October 29th. While it will still be in beta, the site will be accessible to everyone. 

 

Why can't I use the Beta Feedback Tool?
If you’re using browser extensions like AdBlock or Ghostery, they can interfere with the Beta Feedback Tool appearing. We suggest disabling them on the Keep – there are no ads here anyway. 
 

Do I have to pay to use the Keep?

The Keep is online only and is free for everyone. All you need is an Origin ID to log in.
