Dragon Age 2 decisions will carry across to Dragon Age Inquisition

The decisions made by a player in Dragon Age 2 will carry across to Dragon Age Inquisition, developer BioWare confirmed during a PAX Australia panel captured by GameSpot Australia.

"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," writer Cameron said in response to an audience member's question asking how BioWare is going to take into account players save files across next-generation and current-generation systems. "But yeah, we can't go into details on how it is going to work."

It was also revealed during the panel that BioWare is making changes to the dialogue system in Dragon Age Inquisition seen in its past games but isn't getting rid of it. Inquisition will still contain the moral choice system but the studio will include other elements, besides the player's decisions. Inquisition's dialogue trees will also be influenced by the player's statistics and any companions that are present during a conversation.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is slated for release in fall 2014 on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
