If you are playing Dragon Age Inquisition for the PS3 or Xbox 360 and decided to move to the current-gen consoles, then this is great news for you.

Most gamers have the dilemma of repeating their play-through from a certain game in an current generation console because there is no way to transfer their old save date from the previous-gen consoles of the same game. Well looks like EA and Bioware is aware of this common problem and decided that they will be launching a save importer feature for Dragon Age Inquisition.

If you are wondering why you should start to import your game saves from your old consoles is that all of their future DLCs will only be available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. So if you are planning to shift to the latest consoles, here are the guidelines for importing your save data:

 

Migrating Your Dragon Age: Inquisition Savegame and Profile on PlayStation®

Single-Player

Exporting a Savegame from a PlayStation®3 System

How to create a new exportable savegame from the Black Emporium:

  1. On the PlayStation®3 system, you must travel to, or load a savegame file, in the Black Emporium to create a savegame for export.
  2. In the Save Game menu, select NEW SAVE GAME and press [L2] to export to PlayStation®4.
  3. A message appears to inform you what happens when a savegame is exported. Be sure to read the details.
  4. You can choose to proceed or cancel. The button to proceed has been moved from [CROSS] to [TRIANGLE] to prevent players from accidentally proceeding before reading the full details.

If you proceed, the following message appears: “Uploading savegame to server.” Once the export is complete, the following message appears: “You have successfully exported your current game.”

What do I have to be aware of when exporting savegame data?

  • Only 1 exported savegame is available for import at a time.
  • Attempting to export an additional savegame overwrites the previous exported savegame.
  • Attempting to create a savegame for export outside the Black Emporium triggers a message that you must complete this action in the Black Emporium.

Importing a Savegame to a PlayStation®4 System

How to import a savegame exported from the Black Emporium:

  1. On the PlayStation®4 system, select Main Menu and then Extras.
  2. On the Extras screen, select Import PlayStation®3 System Save Data. The following message appears: “Checking for savegame on server.”
  3. A message appears with a summary of the available savegame data. Verify that it matches the previously exported savegame data.
  4. You can choose to proceed or cancel. The button to proceed has been moved from [CROSS] to [TRIANGLE] to prevent players from accidentally proceeding before reading the full details.
  5. If you proceed, the following message appears: “Downloading savegame from server.”
  6. Once the download completes, you should see the following message: “You have successfully downloaded your savegame.”
  7. Load into the Black Emporium on PlayStation®4.

The savegame data import for the single-player campaign is complete. You can now use the Mirror of Transformation located in The Black Emporium if you want to modify your imported character.

  • Using the Mirror of Transformation is recommended because some customization options were not available on the PlayStation®3 system.

What should you be aware of when exporting savegame data?

  • An error message appears if there is no available savegame to import.
  • An error message appears if there are missing DLC items. All DLC used to create the game on the PlayStation®3 system must be present on the new system for the import to proceed.
    • Uses existing save-lock functionality from the main game.
  • You may see a generic error message if something occurs that we don’t have a specific message for.

Multiplayer

Migrating Multiplayer Data on a PlayStation® System

How to migrate multiplayer data:

  1. On the PlayStation®4 system, select Main Menu and then Extras.
  2. On the Extras screen, select Migrate Multiplayer Data.
    • IMPORTANT! You can only migrate your multiplayer data once.
    • You can only migrate multiplayer data from PlayStation®3 to PlayStation®4 via the PlayStation®4 menu.
  3. A message appears to inform you what happens when multiplayer data is migrated.
  4. You can choose to proceed or cancel. The button to proceed has been moved from [CROSS] to [TRIANGLE] to prevent players from accidentally proceeding before reading the full details.
  5. The migration process takes a moment. When it completes, you should see the following message: “Your PlayStation®3 system multiplayer data has been successfully migrated.”

The multiplayer data migration is complete. You can continue playing on PlayStation®4.

What should you be aware of when exporting savegame data?

  • If you have previously completed a multiplayer data migration on the account, you see an error message to that effect.
    • This is a one-time, one-way migration.
  • “Migration Error – Player is disconnected from online services (EA, PSN / XBL).”
    • An online connection is required for the migration to complete.
  • “Migration Error – Player has a purchase transaction in progress.”
    • This is generally caused by an MTX purchase that has not completed. Start the game on PlayStation®3 to let the transaction complete.
  • “Migration Error – Player has more than 99 Platinum on their account.”
    • You can only migrate your account if you have 99 Platinum or less. Any remaining Platinum on PlayStation®3 is not transferred to PlayStation®4.
    • If the balance is 99 or less, the balance remains on PlayStation®3. PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®4 then have two separate balances.
    • If the balance is 100 or more, the migration stops, and you must spend the Platinum on PlayStation®3 before proceeding.
  • You may see a generic error message if something occurs that we don’t have a specific message for.
