Dragon Age 4’s main location will be Tevinter, according to a new BioWare book.

BioWare: Stories and Secrets from 25 Years of Game Development was recently released and in it, it’s revealed that the forthcoming Dragon Age game will be set in the land of Tevinter, as originally reported by Eurogamer. Tevinter, while existing in the lore, is a place that hasn’t been visited in the Dragon Age games before, making it a first for the series.

As pointed out by Eurogamer, Tevinter was set up at the end of the Trespasser expansion for 2014’s Dragon Age Inquisition. The book indicates that places other than Tevinter will be visited as well, which makes sense considering Dragon Age usually sees players trekking across multiple different lands.

Antiva City, the capital of Antiva, is shown in the book too. This city borders Tevinter to the east and is surrounded by water. Other concept art depicts an Antivan Crow, who is an assassin “celebrated for their mastery of stylish slaying” that wears a mask, wields a sword, and has multiple sidekicks, according to Eurogamer.

Alongside that concept art is an image of Mourn Watch, who guards Thedas from occult threats and hangs out in a necropolis. Eurogamer points out that while the location of this necropolis isn’t mentioned, necropolises are used in Nevarra, which is a part of Thedas, as its citizens are known for mummifying their dead. Like Antiva City, Nevarra also borders Tevinter. Other images in the book depict The Deep Roads, which are dwarven tunnels in Thedas, and The Lords of Fortune, which is a treasure hunters’ guild.
