BioWare has been hard at work on the next chapter of the Dragon Age franchise and today the studio is ready to reveal a title. The next game in BioWare’s fantasy RPG series is called Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.
Fans of the series will know the Dreadwolf is a reference to Solas. Without going into spoilers, Solas, a magical party member and potential love interest in Dragon Age: Inquisition. BioWare released an official blog that’s light on details but dives into Solas’ story a bit more.
“Solas, the Dread Wolf. Some say he might be an ancient elven god, but some say not,” the blog says. “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.”
BioWare says that using Solas’s namesake “no doubt suggests a spectrum of endless possibilities of where things may go. But at the core of this, like every past game, is you.”
Solas has been teased for the next Dragon Age game since 2018, but BioWare says veterans and newcomers to the franchise will get their chance to meet the Dread Wolf in due time.
BioWare confirmed that Dragon Age: Dreadwold will not be releasing in this year, but that development is ongoing. The team is promising more information later this year.
