Dragon Age: Inquisition will no longer release downloadable content for its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, and BioWare will introduce a save-importing feature for those who want to bring their progress to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
The import/export feature will become available when Dragon Age: Inquisition's Patch 8 rolls out later this month, BioWare said Monday on the game's official blog.
Like other games that have enabled cross-generation save export and import, this only works for bringing Xbox 360 data to an Xbox One, or PlayStation 3 data to a PS4. Cross-platform import (360 to PS4, etc.) is not supported, nor is PC data export/import.
If a player bought the Jaws of Hakkon or Spoils of the Avvar downloadable content on PS3 or Xbox 360, that content is available for free on the newer consoles, provided the same PlayStation Network or Xbox Live account is used to download it.
Only one gamesave is available for import at a time; importing an additional save file will overwrite the previous one. BioWare has offered a step-by-step FAQ for how this works, as well as how other features such as platinum and DLC skins, weapons or costume items figure in.
"All future Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only," BioWare said. Three extensions have been released so far, Jaws of Hakkon, Dragonslayer (free) and Spoils of the Avvar, the latter coming June 9.
