BioWare today kicked off PAX by announcing the full details for the Dragon Age Toolset. BioWare will be presenting the Dragon Age Toolset at the Penny Arcade Expo today through Sunday. For those not attending the show in Seattle, we have included the details below.
Designed specifically for Dragon Age: Origins, the Dragon Age Toolset will provide players with developer-grade tools that will allow them to produce their own content. In other words, this stuff lets you build mods. Here are the details:
- Create Original Adventures: Using the full set of Dragon Age assets and locations, users can modify the areas by adding new quests, characters and scripting to craft their own adventures, fate-defining conversations and cut-scenes.
- Powerful Script Editor: Users can fully customize combat and creature AI, allowing them to create detailed action sequences full of heart-pounding party-based tactical combat.
- Content Creators Community: BioWare plans to have a dedicated community area online where content creators can share content easily and get content updates for the toolset.
- OnGoing Toolset Content Updates: BioWare plans to release additional assets and features for the toolset in the future, allowing for expanded creation of new areas.
