Track / Format Production
Overview For RPG games, and in particular BioWare's games choices matter. Over hundreds of hours of gameplay, across multiple titles, fans have been shaping their Dragon Age universe since the launch of Dragon Age: Origins. However, the traditional save import system, responsible for carrying those choices to future titles, presents a number of challenges when it comes to moving data across generations and platforms. From corrupt save game files to platform-based restrictions, find out how the Dragon Age Keep's unique web-based approach successfully solves for cross-platform and generation challenges while creating the opportunity to engage with fans before, during, and after a game launches by building a franchise ecosystem.
