Anyone who’s spent time with Fallen London can tell you there are no better writers in the videogame business than Failbetter Games. So it makes perfect sense that Bioware would hire them to bridge the gap between Dragon Age 2 and Dragon Age 3 (i.e. Dragon Age: Inquisition). The Last Court, a game in the style of Fallen London, covers the events after whatever happened at the end of Dragon Age 2 and before the events that begin Dragon Age: Inquisition. I can’t really tell you what those events are because I was pretty bored and had stopped paying attention by the time Dragon Age 2 ended — I think it was a boss battle — and I haven’t played Dragon Age: Inquisition yet. According to the trailer above, something blew up and some people reacted accordingly.
The Last Court will be part of Dragon Age Keep, a browser-based questionnaire that stands in for Bioware’s imported save scheme from previous games. You answer about 300 questions and then tap into it when you start playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. That’s a pretty clever way around all the cross-platform shenanigans going on these days.
The Last Court will be live in “a little more than a week”.
