BioWare can’t help but spill the beans and share what they’re up to. Perhaps that’s why they announced they were in the midst of a new ‘Dragon Age’ back in 2018. It’s 2023 now, and we’re still being fed on trailers while the game’s anticipation remains sky-high, and the gaming community is buzzing with excitement. After a few months of silence, the studio has released a new trailer… which only suggests that we’ll have to wait a little bit longer.
The age of the dragon feels quite lengthy
These years haven’t been easy for BioWare: the once well-oiled machine has faced problems due to massive employee layoffs and the lackluster success of some of their projects, such as ‘Mass Effect Andromeda’ or ‘Anthem’. It seems like they’ve placed all their hopes on ‘Dragon Age: Dreadwolf’ and a new untitled ‘Mass Effect‘ about which we know absolutely nothing for now.
This new 50-second trailer, celebrating “Dragon Age Day” (apparently, that’s a thing), has basically served to tell us that in the summer of 2024, we’ll get the first major trailer (or at least, a “full reveal,” whatever that means). Essentially, it’s the typical teaser for a trailer that’s been quite common lately, but after six years of waiting for more news.
Alright, it’s not what we expected, but it does have something very good that was almost forbidden for us until now: a date. We don’t know if it’s a date for an imminent release or if it’ll just lead us to another future date. By then, the game will have been in development for nine years, and all we know is that it will focus on Solas as the main antagonist and will be a direct sequel to the previous one, which isn’t common in the franchise. If you’re hoping to get lost for hours in the landscapes of Antiva, you’ll still have time to replay ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ before experiencing the saga with next-gen graphics.
