The long-awaited next installment in the Dragon Age series finally has a name: Dreadwolf. While little is known about the game so far, fans are already speculating about what the title could mean. Some believe that the word ‘dreadwolf’ is a reference to Fenris, a character from the previous games who turns into a giant wolf. Others think that it could be a hint at the return of the Archdemon, a giant dragon that served as the main antagonist of Dragon Age: Origins. Whatever the case may be, fans are eagerly awaiting more information about this highly anticipated game.
Electronic Arts dropped a surprise reveal today, officially confirming the full title of Dragon Age 4: Dreadwolf. This news comes as a relief to fans who have been waiting patiently for any updates on the highly anticipated game. EA has been hinting at the title for years, going all the way back to the very first tease for a new Dragon Age game, which closed in #TheDreadWolfRises hashtag. Subsequent teasers have also featured Solas, a powerful, villainous elven mage known by the Dread Wolf moniker. It is still unclear what role Solas will play in the game, but with the confirmation of the title, fans can rest assured that they will finally get some answers when Dragon Age 4: Dreadwolf releases.
Solas is one of the most enigmatic characters in the Dragon Age universe. His true origins and motivations are a mystery, even to himself. Some say he is an ancient elven god, while others believe he is a betrayer of his people. What is clear is that Solas is a powerful being with a deep connection to the Fade. He seems to be searching for something, or someone, and is willing to sacrifice anything—or anyone—to find it. This has earned him a reputation as a trickster deity, and many believe he is playing a dangerous game with the fate of the world at stake. Only time will tell what Solas’s true goals are, but one thing is certain: he is not to be underestimated.
BioWare creative director Mike Laidlaw tantalized Dragon Age fans with a hint at the nature of Solas, the elven mage and companion introduced in Dragon Age: Inquisition. In a recent blog post, Laidlaw emphasized that player choice is still central to the Dragon Age franchise, even with a new character like Solas. He went on to say that players will get to know Solas better as the story progresses, and that they should be prepared for some surprising twists and turns. This is sure to be music to the ears of Dragon Age fans, who have come to expect complex and nuanced stories from the franchise. With Solas set to play a major role in the upcoming DLC, players can look forward to an exciting and unpredictable ride.
