As previously hinted by BioWare General Manager Casey Hudson, a brief teaser for the new Dragon Age game (untitled as of yet) debuted at The Game Awards 2018 last night.
The teaser is entirely centered on the rise of the Dread Wolf, an Elven God who successfully disguised himself as the companion mage Solas in Dragon Age: Inquisition. In the final DLC story expansion, Trespasser, Solas revealed himself to the Inquisitor - the player character - and his plan to restore ancient elves to their former glory. This will presumably be a central theme in the upcoming new installment.
BioWare also shared a message on their official blog, where they revealed that work on the project has been going for 'quite a while now'. Perhaps the next Dragon Age isn't as far away as rumors would have it, then.
We have been working on a new Dragon Age game for quite a while now and I am pleased to finally tease the existence of this project!
While we won’t be sharing any details for now, I can tell you we have been building a new team around a core of Dragon Age veterans, people I’ve worked with on Dragon Age, Jade Empire, and some of whom I’ve worked with since the Baldur’s Gate days.
While I have been focused on Anthem, the rest of the team has been hard at work exploring ways to push BioWare’s storytelling to the next level.
I’m so excited to show you more!
Mark Darrah, Executive Producer
Making players into heroes of their own stories has been my real-life quest since Baldur’s Gate.
Over the years I’ve taken on increasing challenges: building vast living worlds, devising fun party-based combat and illustrating fantastic stories. Now, I’m honored and excited to continue BioWare’s rich legacy of colorful companions, romance and epic choices in my favorite fantasy franchise.
We’ve gathered our strongest team yet and are venturing forth on the most epic quest ever!
