One feature that existed in previous Dragon Age games that was oddly missing in Dragon Age: Inquisition was a personal storage chest that allowed players to store the excess inventory items that they wished to keep. Since the recent launch of the series’ third entry, many Dragon Age: Inquisition fans have repeatedly asked for Bioware to implement some kind of similar storage system in the franchise’s newest installment.
Earlier this week, Dragon Age: Inquisition creative Director Mike Laidlaw confirmed via his personal Twitter account that a storage mechanic is indeed one of the most requested features that players would like to see added to the game. While some kind of personal storage mechanic won’t be added in the game’s upcoming patch, Laidlaw did confirm that Bioware is still looking into the possibility of adding some kind of storage chest to Dragon Age: Inquisition in the future.
“Not in this patch. They are hotly requested features, though, so we’re continuing to evaluate.”
Without a way to store items in a chest, fans are forced to deal with the limited inventory of what their characters can personally carry. This tends to become problematic once players begin to juggle not only their own inventory, but the gear of Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s nine companion followers as well. Needless to say, items begin to quickly begin to become an increasing issue when trying to manage items for that many people using the limited inventory system of the game.
If Bioware does add secondary storage to Dragon Age: Inquisition, it would be the first time that the developer has added a feature based upon fan requests. According to a report by the Inquisitr, the developer recently confirmed that they will be reworking the way that party banter and conversations will trigger based upon player feedback.
Additionally, Mike Laidlaw also revealed that the next patch will add the option for PC players to walk within Dragon Age: Inquisition simply because it was a feature that players wanted. After being asked why Bioware felt the need to implement a walking feature, Laidlaw gave the following statement.
“Player preference. It was widely requested, so we threw a few people at implementing and testing it.”
Beyond investigating ways to possibly add personal storage to Dragon Age: Inquisition, the development team is also still hoping to give player the option to alter their characters appearance throughout the course of the game. Like storage chests, this is another popular feature that Laidlaw revealed to be commonly requested by fans.
