Dragon Age 4: What We Know So Far
The Dragon Age series is one of the most beloved RPG franchises in gaming history, and the upcoming Dragon Age 4 has been hotly anticipated since its announcement. Here’s everything we know about the game so far.
Dragon Age 4 was officially announced at the 2018 Game Awards with a teaser trailer. The game is being developed by BioWare, the same studio behind the previous Dragon Age games, as well as the Mass Effect series.
Development of the game has been ongoing since at least 2015, with rumors of a fourth installment in the series swirling for years before the official announcement. However, the game has faced a number of setbacks and delays, including the departure of key staff members and a significant overhaul of the game’s development.
While we don’t know much about the specifics of Dragon Age 4’s gameplay, we do know that it will be an action RPG similar to previous games in the series. Players will likely control a customizable protagonist who can recruit companions and engage in tactical combat.
BioWare has also hinted at some major changes to the series formula. In an interview with IGN, BioWare’s Mark Darrah said, “We’re trying some new things in the game, and we’re also trying to take some of the things that we’ve learned from both Inquisition and Andromeda and put them together.”
The story of Dragon Age 4 is shrouded in mystery, but we do know that it will continue the narrative threads established in previous games. Specifically, the game will focus on the rise of the Dread Wolf, a character first introduced in Dragon Age: Inquisition’s Trespasser DLC.
The game’s teaser trailer also hints at a possible return to Tevinter, a powerful empire in the Dragon Age universe. In the trailer, we see a statue of a dragon with Tevinter writing on it, and we hear a Tevinter voice saying, “So you found me at last. I suspect you have questions.”
While we don’t know much about the specific characters that will appear in Dragon Age 4, we do know that the game will feature both returning and new characters. In a blog post, BioWare’s Casey Hudson wrote, “As BioWare’s first game in this new era, we have been careful to select a team of enthusiastic developers with a variety of backgrounds and experiences, who are all united in their passion for the rich stories, unforgettable characters, and vast worlds of Dragon Age.”
BioWare has also teased that the game will feature “more nuanced and layered companions” than previous games in the series.
Dragon Age 4 is one of the most highly anticipated games in recent memory, and while we don’t know much about it yet, what we do know is tantalizing. The game’s focus on the rise of the Dread Wolf, its possible return to Tevinter, and its promised changes to the series’ formula all make for an exciting prospect. We can’t wait to see what BioWare has in store for us with Dragon Age 4.
