Dragon Age Keep is a free online application that allows players to tailor decisions made in Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition. Decisions made in Origins and Dragon Age II can be imported into Inquisition; it is the only way to transfer choices into Inquisition. The Keep will presumably also be used for Dragon Age 4. The Keep can be accessed on a variety of devices (including tablets and smartphones) through an Origin account. A beta version of the application was publicly released on October 29, 2014.

The Keep scans the linked account to check for any pre-existing Wardens or Hawkes. If there aren't any, there will be an option to choose from a selection of pre-defined heroes. Once the protagonists from the previous games have been selected, an animated video, narrated by Varric, describing the events of the previous installments will play. Any time the story branches, the user will have the ability to alter what happens.

After the video is over or skipped, the "Tapestry" can be used to select major decisions quickly and efficiently, while also clearing up various canon errors.

You can have up to 10 different World States saved in the Keep at any one time, and can edit or delete them at any time (though you must have at least 1 World State saved). It is possible to share one's World States with other Origin users.

There are approximately 300 choices that can be made in the Keep.

An official Feature Tutorial was released on YouTube from BioWare Base, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HmktEiXcvw
