Prior to launching Dragon Age: Inquisition late last year, BioWare released a web-based application called the Dragon Age Keep that allowed players to build their own custom world state within the world of Thedas, based off the decisions that they were presented throughout the course of the Dragon Age franchise. This gave fans the ability to carry over their personal stories from the popular role-playing game so that they could continue their adventure across all platforms.
This was especially helpful, since Dragon Age: Inquisition brought the series to the newest generation of consoles for the first time. Those who picked up one of the new systems couldn’t simply import their old save file since they were now playing on a brand new platform. The Dragon Age Keep was BioWare’s answer to this problem.
However, since the Dragon Age Keep was first released, BioWare has been listening to user feedback in the hopes of improving how the application functions, and the developer announced on Twitter today that they have deployed a new update to The Keep that made changes based off player feedback.
“Latest Keep release is now live & we’ve added a few things you’ve been asking for!”
Providing Dragon Age fans with a more in-depth look at what this week’s new update for The Keep changed, the developer shared expanded details on what is now new about the web-based app on the official BioWare Blog.
“The Dragon Age Keep is all about letting you shape and share your Dragon Age experience the way you see fit, and we have been listening to your feedback on how to make it better. In our latest release, we introduce a number of features that give you more customizability and control over your Dragon Age legacy, including your heroes, world states, and career.”
One of the biggest changes to The Keep gives gamers the ability to finally see all decisions that were presented inside Dragon Age: Inquisition. The plot points from the series’ most recent installment were added to the app shortly after the game launched. However, until now, users were only able to view the decisions that they had actually unlocked while playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. The latest update for The Keep now gives players the ability to fully view all entries from Dragon Age: Inquisition, regardless of their actual play history.
The update also featured several improvements that were intended to further customize their world states that are saved to the Dragon Age Keep. This included options to upload custom portraits and the ability to finally delete saved playthrough settings from the world state manager.
In addition to improving the user experience inside the Dragon Age Keep, BioWare is also currently working to bring out the next big content update for Dragon Age: Inquisition. According to an earlier report by the Inquisitr, the developer expects that the free Black Emporium patch will be available across all platforms next month.
