DRAGON AGE: DREADWOLF announced by BioWare

BioWare have confirmed that the next game in their Dragon Age series of fantasy CRPGs will be called Dreadwolf, but the game has no release date as yet.

Dreadwolf will be the fourth game in the series. It began with Dragon Age: Origins in 2009 and then continued with Dragon Age II (2011) and Dragon Age: Inquisition (2014). Set on the continent of Thedas, the games initially chronicled the invasion of the civilised lands by a monstrous race called the Darkspawn. Subsequent games have focused on political intrigue and the conflict between wizards and the world's religious orders. The games have spun off a number of novels and comics.

According to BioWare, Dreadwolf will focus on the character of Solas, a character from Inquisition, who will serve as the titular Dreadwolf and the game's main antagonist.

BioWare have been working on the game since Inquisition's release, but development was complicated by several ideas and builds for the game being scrapped and then started over. Staff were also seconded to help on Mass Effect: Andromeda (2017) and Anthem (2019). The direction and format of Dreadwolf has changed several times during development, with a strong multiplayer focus being scrapped in favour of being a single-player-only game.

BioWare have not set a release date for the game, but it is not expected before 2023 at the earliest. BioWare are also working on a new Mass Effect game.

The aesthetic of that title screen seems more fitting for Paw Patrol than an adult RPG.
