BioWare has released the title for the next chapter in the Dragon Age franchise. Dragon Age: Dreadwolf doesn’t yet have a release date, but the studio has opened up with some new info and promises more to come this year.
When we last saw new Dragon Age content, it was way back in 2015. A year after the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, the Trespasser expansion was released and revealed that your companion, the mage Solas, was actually known as the Dread Wolf of Elven legend, sometimes considered a god, sometimes a betrayer, and more.
“Solas, the Dread Wolf. Some say he might be an ancient elven god, but some say not. Others say a betrayer of his people…or a savior 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.”
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf won’t be released in 2022, but in the announcement accompanying the title reveal, BioWare promises that we’ll find out more later in the year. This tease also came with some background and hints at the premise and, of course, the inclusion of Solas as a confirmed “antagonist”.
“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.”
When that time will be right is still up in the air, but having an official title and the promise that more info will come later in the year should give us all something to chew over as fans have no double started the art of theorycrafting over why the title is Dreadwolf as one word while Solas is called the Dread Wolf, in two words. Hmm.
