Nobody may expect the (Dragon Age) Inquisition, but luckily it seems like we can expect that the decisions made in previous entries of the Dragon Age series will carry over into BioWare’s upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition, in particular those of the previous entry, Dragon Age II.
During a panel at PAX Australia, BioWare writer and producer Cameron Lee mentioned:
“We know, we are not going to talk about it yet. We know what we want to do. It will absolutely come across, your decisions will carry [across], it will matter.”
While Cameron was mum on further details into how these decisions will affect the next Dragon Age game, or how save files from the current-gen consoles would carry over to Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s release on next-gen consoles, he assured the audience at their PAX Australia panel that BioWare has plans in place for it all to work.
Cameron and BioWare also mentioned that Dragon Age: Inquisition will see some changes to the series’ previous interpretations of moral choices and decision-making. While the upcoming game will keep the core elements of Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II and their use of meaningful player decisions, the game will also incorporate factors like the player’s level and stats, companions that may be journeying alongside him/her, and other unique influencers.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is currently scheduled for release in late 2014 on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
