Dragon Age: Inquisition Web App Delayed, Closed Beta Extended

Web-based companion app Dragon Age Keep to launch alongside Dragon Age: Inquisition, no end date given for beta extension.

Dragon Age Keep will be delayed to coincide with the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare has announced. BioWare's blog confirmed the "companion web experience" closed beta will now be extended, but didn't specify an end date.

Dragon Age Keep allows players to create and modify game saves, bringing over their choices from Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II. Players can then import the world state into Dragon Age: Inquisition. Since announcing the companion app, a closed beta for Dragon Age Keep has run for several months.

Gamers can apply to enter the closed beta at dragonagekeep.com. Players interested in Dragon Age Keep can follow its official Twitter account for all the latest updates and announcements.

Recently, it was confirmed that Dragon Age: Inquisition would be delayed by one month. BioWare also said the game will have straight, bisexual and gay romances.

Dragon Age: Inquisition will be released November 18. Dragon Age Keep's exact release date is still to be confirmed.

I signed up for this Keep beta at the very beginning..did I get an invite? Of course not.

The Keep will still release before DA:I to give players time to make the world states if they want to. They answered a question about that yesterday. It just won't release at the original date.

Delayed to coincide with the DA:I release? That makes no sense!


Bioware has said it needs to launch the Keep prior to the game , since the ENTIRE point of the Keep is to build up the world from the previous Dragon Age games (since your saves no longer carry over). 


This thing is meant to be able to allow you to make all the decisions and setup the game how you did while playing the other games and get DA:I's world state correct for how you want it to be BEFORE you start the game, not at the same time.

These companion apps are always crap.  Just cancel it.

Before the recent delay, the app was to be released a week after DAI. Surely, the game wasn't delayed to synchronize the dates of release?

They said that they were releasing it a month prior to the game so instead of sometime in September the keep will be released somtime in October. "sighs" I wish people would stop jumping to conclusions x(

@Thanatos2k It's not companion app. It's app where your saves from DA:O and/or DA II will be and from where you'll be able to change or create a completely new save to import into Dragon Age Inquisition.

@isshiah I'm not sure where you got that from but it was to be released around a month before DAI originally so people could prepare their world states for import.

@xxthefallenx The article said "Coincide" which means at the same time. 

However I posted this on the bioware forums and a developer responded saying they still intended to release it before the game launches.

@gagula94 @Thanatos2k So it's a companion app? 


Some companion apps have little effect on the game (GTA V), some companion apps let you look at your character's stats (Destiny), some companion apps let you play the game (The Division - if Ubisoft follows through), this app lets you create a save. It's a companion for the game. It's a companion app.

@nadastigmata @isshiah yes, that sounds more reasonable. 


I got it from a youtube fan who is usually on top of things.


Or perhaps I dreamt it....the damn fade won't leave me in peace.
