Dragon Age Keep images reveal Inquisition world state questionnaire


Images from the Dragon Age Keep beta have emerged online, and they reveal a detailed questionnaire designed to determine the state of the world in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

The images, which popped up on Imgur and were spotted by Reddit (via VG247), contain spoilers for both Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2. The questionnaire is pretty detailed, and digs into much of the major decisions made during the first two games in BioWare's fantasy role-playing series.


The questionnaire asks questions such as, "What happened to the warden at the end of Dragon Age: Origins?", "Did Hawke join the mercenaries or the smugglers?", "Who now rules Ferelden?", "What happened to Shale?" and "What happened to Merrill?" It's important to note that the Keep is in beta and so the questionnaire may be changed before release.

Last month BioWare announced a delay to the Dragon Age Keep, which ties in with the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition.

The Keep, a "companion web experience" for Inquisition, never had a solid release date and still doesn't have one now - it was always due out at some point before Inquisition and that's still the case.

The closed beta for the Keep will be extended "accordingly", BioWare said. It has been running for "several months" and you can sign-up to take part.

The Keep lets you to customise the starting state of your Dragon Age: Inquisition world, deciding what happened at major plot points throughout the series' history. Once you've customised your world, your choices will be compiled into a file that your Inquisition game can import - very much like importing saves from previous Dragon Age games.

The Keep was invented for numerous reasons: for newcomers, to overcome compatibility issues with Inquisition using a different engine to Dragon Age 1 or 2, and to allow people to carry on their Dragon Age stories on new or different hardware (there are PS4 and Xbox One versions this time).
