The title of the fourth mainline entry in the Dragon Age franchise, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf was revealed in June 2022 by Bioware. Currently, information about the game is very scarce, but on Dragon Age day 2022, Bioware revealed a cinematic trailer for their upcoming title.

The trailer sets the stage for the approaching game with a special focus on Solas. For those who aren’t familiar, Solas has been a major part of previous Dragon Age games. He goes by the title ‘Dreadwolf’ which essentially is the name of the incoming game. He was a playable character in Dragon Age: Inquisition and will clearly be vital in Dreadwolf too.
Also, fans of the franchise will immediately recognize the voice of Varric, another notable figure in previous titles. Varric narrates the story of Solas in the trailer titled ‘Who is the Dread Wolf?’ You can watch the trailer here:
The trailer would make more sense to people who have played Dragon Age: Inquisition and the Trespasser DLC and are aware of DA’s lore. Varric Narrates:
I knew him as Solas, a thoughtful mage obsessed with dreams, but long ago, he had a different name – Fen’Harel, the Dread Wolf. Ancient Elven God of Lies or heroic rebel against tyranny, depending on which story you believe. In his final fight with the Elven Gods, Solas imprisoned them and created a veil that split our world from the raw magic of the fade. But now, he wants to tear down that veil and destroy the world, and we’re the only ones who can stop him.Varric’s narration from Dragon Age: Dreadwolf cinematic trailer
It was revealed back in October that Dragon Age: Dreadwolf had reached its alpha milestone, meaning that it can be played from the start to the end. Despite that, we haven’t had any gameplay reveal nor any release date for the game. But, entering alpha mode doesn’t guarantee that the game is anywhere near complete. To polish the game entirely and launch it as a final product could take a lot of time.
The last main game in the franchise, Dragon Age: Inquisition launched about 8 years ago now. So, it’s about time the sequel arrived. However, instances of games launching in unfinished forms make us believe that Bioware should take its time and launch the best version at release.
