Dragon Age 4 is coming – check out the Game Awards teaser
The rumors have been confirmed: Dragon Age 4 – as it probably won’t be called – is a reality. BioWare published the first teaser at Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards.
The teaser also shows an old friend – unfortunately not Sten or Morrigan from the earlier titles, but Solas from Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Its open worlds were not to everyone’s taste, after Dragon Age 2, which unfortunately felt a bit unfinished with all its qualities, some saw it as an improvement. These people will be happy that the last part will be picked up if the hashtag at the end, #DreadWolfRises, is an indication.
But first Anthem will come at the beginning of the coming year anyway, which is probably the reason that Dragon Age 4 has been so quiet the last few years.
“We’ve been working on a new Dragon Age for quite a while and I’m excited to finally be able to anteasean the project’s existence,” Executive Producer Mark Darrah writes in a blog post on the BioWare site.
“We’re not going into the details yet, but I can tell you that we’ve built a new team around a core of Dragon Age veterans. I’ve worked with some of them on Dragon Age and Jade Empire, and I’ve worked with others since the days of Baldur’s Gate. “
Dragon Age’s new Creative Director is Matthew Goldman. He already promises that companions, romances and big decisions play a role again (and ironically, which should not be found in Anthem).
“Making players the heroes of their own stories has been my real-life quest since Baldur’s Gate,” writes Goldman.
“Over the years, I’ve taken on ever greater challenges: creating huge, living worlds, devising fun party-based combat systems, and illustrating fantastic stories. Now I’m honored and excited to see the rich legacy of BioWare’s multi-faceted companions, romances, and epic choices in to continue my favorite fantasy franchise. “
“We have gathered our strongest team yet and are embarking on the most epic quest yet!”
According to insider information, it should take at least two more years, which seems increasingly likely after the short teaser without real game scenes.
