‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ DLC Will Only Work On Newer Systems

You’ve beaten Dragon Age: Inquisition, and you’re practically foaming at the mouth (okay, maybe not) for more story. Well, bad news for those of you who still haven’t jumped ship to current-gen platforms: future DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition will only work on new systems.

Sorry, Xbox 360 fans. Oh, and PlayStation 3 fans. Let’s not forget those.

Fortunately, BioWare has set up something in place that allows those playing on older systems to transfer their save to a newer platform — provided they have the money to procure new hardware, that is. Here’s what BioWare wrote on its forums.

“All future Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One only, so we designed our Save Importer feature to help make the transition to a new console as easy as possible. Below, we’ll walk you through the migration process for each console, as well as provide a helpful FAQ.”

In order to actually transfer your save, you’ll have to run through a few steps. Keep in mind, this will only allow you to transfer files from your PlayStation 3 to a PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360 to Xbox One. PC users, you’re out of luck. Still, it’s a convenient way to upgrade without losing progress — on consoles.

We don’t know a great deal about what’s in store for future Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC, but we do know that developer BioWare is most definitely not done with story-heavy add-ons to the already content-packed product.

The game’s first DLC, dubbed the Jaws of Hakkon, was first released on PC before being released on all consoles. In the future, it sounds like we’ll be seeing day-and-date releases — sans the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, of course.

The news may be disappointing to fans who haven’t picked up their current-gen console (or own a gaming PC), but it will hopefully lead to richer and more detailed graphics. Or for all we know, it will just keep the framerate consistent. Well enough, right?

What do you think about BioWare’s rather bold move? Does it affect you? Are you still playing Dragon Age: Inquisition? Why not let us know in the comments!
