It is always good to get a pleasant surprise every once in a while, and for all the Wardens, Inquisitors, and Champions around the world, today is one such day. BioWare and Electronic Arts have finally revealed the full title of the upcoming Dragon Age sequel, and it will be called Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.
It should come as no surprise, as we have known for some time now that Solas will be the main antagonist in the sequel, and he goes by the Dread Wolf moniker.
“Solas, the Dread Wolf. Some say he might be an ancient elven god, but some say not,” BioWare said in a Dragon Age: Dreadwolf blog update. “Others say a betrayer of his people…or a saviour who now seeks to rescue them at the cost of your world. His motives are inscrutable and his methods sometimes questionable, earning him a reputation as something of a trickster deity—a player of dark and dangerous games.”
“Whether you’re new to Dragon Age stories or you’ve experienced them all, using Solas’s namesake no doubt suggests a spectrum of endless possibilities on where things may go. But at the core of this, like every past game, is you. If you’re new to Dragon Age, you have no need to worry about not having met our antagonist just yet. He’ll properly introduce himself when the time is right.”
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf bucks the trend for the series in that it functions as a direct sequel of sorts, expanding upon the story in Dragon Age: Inquisition and bringing back Solas and potentially more familiar faces. This will ensure that veterans have something to look forward to, and teasing newcomers into trying out the older games.
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf will not be released anytime soon, but BioWare has promised to show more about the game in the coming months.
