Dragon Age Dreadwolf: All The Info You Need


Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is the official title although no release date has been set yet

Thedas will be revisited in Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, a new entry in BioWare’s cherished fantasy role-playing game franchise. Though we still don’t know much about the next adventure’s course, one of the most eagerly awaited new games in a while is about to change.

According to an official announcement, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf will officially launch in the summer of 2024.

The announcement was accompanied by a brief teaser that featured several locations on Thedas’ map, including Rivain and the Grey Warden headquarters in Weisshaupt. Additionally, we hear a voice discussing Antiva. All of which are highly regarded locations in Dragon Age mythology that we haven’t had the opportunity to visit.

Discover everything we currently know about Dragon Age: Dreadwolf as we wait for the reveal.

Release date and platform rumours:

There is currently no official launch window for Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, so the game’s release date is still very much up in the air. To ensure that “Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is an outstanding game,” BioWare laid off 50 developers in August 2023, according to news reports. This has only made the future of the eagerly anticipated new installment in the cherished fantasy series seem more uncertain. The news was followed by the announcement that the studio is being sued by the former BioWare employees.

Perhaps a date will finally be confirmed for the impending reveal in the summer of 2024.

The last time we heard a hint about when we might anticipate returning to Thedas, it was in a financial report that implied the return would still occur in 2024, which seems to be a year away. However, there hasn’t been a recent update in this area.

The development status of Dragon Age 4 was also disclosed in a blog post from 2022, stating that it had reached the Alpha stage. It was reported that the BioWare team was able to complete the game from beginning to end: “Up to this point, we’ve been working hard on the various parts of the game, but it’s not until the Alpha milestone that a game all comes together. Now, for the first time, we can experience the entire game, from the opening scenes of the first mission to the very end. We can see, hear, feel, and play everything as a cohesive experience.”

The post continues on to say that “the game is not finished by any means”, but the milestones indicate its nearer completion.

Gameplay Leaks:

Reddit users claimed to have seen early alpha stage footage of Dragon Age 4, leading to the appearance of gameplay leaks for Dragon Age Dreadwolf in February 2023. The post is still active and describes a section that takes place in the Grey Warden fortress headquarters, known as Weisshaupt, even though the links to gifs and screenshots have since been removed. It also discusses a few purported classes, the existence of Red Lyrium, and even the potential evolution of Dragon Age Dreadwolf’s combat, which divided players because it seemed to be moving toward a God of War-like style.

Cinematic Trailer:

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf’s in-game cinematic was unveiled by BioWare on Dragon Age Day 2022, and it prominently featured Solas once more. The most intriguing aspect of this cinematic, however, is that Varric Tethras—the endearing outlaw and storyteller we initially met in Dragon Age 2—narrates it. Varric introduces the Dreadwolf to those who are unfamiliar with the series and discusses Solas’ goal, which provides a fantastic summary of where Dragon Age: Inquisition left off.

The last line Varric says in the scene, “We’re the only ones who can stop him,” alludes to the famous dwarf making a comeback and possibly even collaborating with the character we’ll take over for. It makes sense, given his prominence in the Inquisition and his appearance in the Dreadwolf prequel comic.
