Fovfmtgkgjgihmthgkbvdvlkfvdlv!!! That is essentially my reaction to discovering that there is a new Dragon Age in the works, and in case my incredible words (word?) didn’t sum up my feelings well enough I am officially ecstatic! Dragon Age has long been a series I have held a strong fondness for with Dragon Age Inquisition being one of my favourite games on next generation consoles, it was a huge improvement on Dragon Age 2 though make no mistake I did enjoy my time in Kirkwall.
But Inquisition reaffirmed my love for the series, it was the first game I actually purchased brand new for my PS4 and it didn’t disappoint, I enjoyed being the inquisitor, winning allies to defeat what appeared impossible odds. Bioware truly do have a habit of creating some of my favourite games, both the Dragon Age and Mass Effect series are amazing. I for one cannot wait to see what is up next for the heroes in Thedas. Will our journey as the inquisitor carry on? Will we see the champion of Kirkwall again? Or perhaps my favourite thought, will we get to see the hero of Fereldan again? All of those are possible, there is no way that the cast of characters Bioware has already established will be forgotten, I’m already confident we will have familiar faces in our party.
Now I know that most of the focus is on Anthem right now especially since it has been pushed back to early 2019, perhaps a surprise for some but not for me, I knew there was no way we would be seeing Anthem this year, it was an ambitious task to say the least. However it has been confirmed that there are team members at Bioware who have already turned their attention to Dragon Age and they are hard at work ensuring the 4th instalment will be just as good, if not better than the last. I know that I am one of the few who actually thought Andromeda got a lot more hate than it deserved but Bioware needs to get the new Dragon Age game right, Mass Effect and Dragon Age are the 2 biggest franchises they have at the moment and considering the fact that Mass Effects future is rocky at best they need to ensure that their fantasy series lives on and truly delivers to its fans.
The is one thing that I can say for definite and that is that after the tweet from Casey Hudson the team are planning on making sure the game still has plenty to offer you after the story has been finished.
Reading lots of feedback regarding Dragon Age, and I think you’ll be relieved to see what the team is working on. Story & character focused.
Too early to talk details, but when we talk about “live” it just means designing a game for continued storytelling after the main story.
