Very expected: Bioware’s next epic RPG, Dragon Age 4, has received several teasers and rumors lately – Twitter posts, short clips and interviews that give us small hints about the game’s potential storyline. However, these tidbits aside, Bioware has largely kept quiet about the game as a whole, with no indication of when we might be able to hear more or even know its official title.

Today, that silence has been partly broken. Just a few hours ago, Bioware announced big news: Dragon Age 4 was officially titled “Dragon Age: Dreadwolf”. Although I’m not too familiar with the Dragon Age lore (I’ve only played Origins), Bioware claims that the nickname “Dreadwolf” refers to Solas, a former member of the Dragon Age Inquisition squad.

This time he will not help the main character on his journey – he will interfere with him. The elven mage appears to have gone from hero to villain in this title, given that Bioware describes him as an antagonist with “incomprehensible” motives and “questionable” methods.

Bioware assures players that whether they’ve met Solas before in a Dragon Age game or not, they have nothing to worry about: he’ll “introduce himself properly when the time is right”, whatever that means.

In addition to the vague plot details mentioned above, Bioware provided us with a few other useful details. First, the game won’t release this year (no surprises), so anyone who was hoping for a Dreadwolf launch over the 2022 holidays will have to adjust their expectations. However, don’t be discouraged, because there is good news too.

While we won’t get a real 2022 release, Bioware is planning some kind of opening later this year. We’re not sure what its content will be, but gameplay footage and an info dump seem like safe bets given how much time has passed since Dreadwolf was first teased.
