As the fidelity of game experiences increases across all aspects of game design, story is a critical piece of the puzzle that allows developers to increase player engagement, weave the gameplay experience together, and create deep emotional connections to content. 

This session will explore story design fundamentals in BioWare games, such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Star Wars: The Old Republic, and how these fundamentals can be used in consideration of story perspective in any game design project.
