Dragon Age: Dreadwolf teaser reintroduces the world of Thedas

It’s Dragon Age Day, and BioWare celebrated by releasing a new teaser trailer for Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. Titled “Thedas Calls”, this trailer gives us our first in-engine look at some places players will visit in the game. We also learned when we can expect to learn more about this title.

Thedas Calls - Dragon Age Day (2023)

The main throughline of the teaser is a dynamic map of Thedas, the world and continent on which the Dragon Age series is set. It jumps to different places in Thedas, like the city of Antiva and the beaches of Rivain, as different characters narrate and reveal their own ambitions and goals. Essentially, this teaser serves to reestablish Dragon Age: Dreadwolf’s setting ahead of its full reveal, which EA and BioWare promise will happen in summer 2024 at the end of the trailer.

Wish lists opened up for Dragon Age: Dreadwolf on Steam and console storefronts today, and its updated description there reveals a bit more about the highly anticipated RPG. It says that the fate of Thedas “teeters on a knife’s edge,” so players need to come in and become a new leader for the continent.

“You’ll forge a courageous fellowship to challenge the gathering storm,” the game’s Steam description states. “Friendship, drama, and romance will abound as you bring striking individuals together into an extraordinary team. Become the leader and light the beacon of hope in their darkest moments.”

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf was first teased at The Game Awards in 2018, and we’ve only received occasional updates since then. The most substantial one before now was last June when the game’s title was confirmed to be Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. Its development has reportedly been rife with issues, with the project reportedly being rebooted during development and multiple staff departures and layoffs happening over the past several years. BioWare is clearly trying to reinvigorate hype and interest in its games again with this and November’s teaser for the new Mass Effect.

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is in development for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, and we’ll learn more about it next summer

The best Bioware games of all time
Male and female Shepard fist bumping.

BioWare has been one of the most prominent Western developers of RPGs for decades now. They made their mark on the industry early on by crafting deep stories told with a level of writing that was otherwise absent from video games as a whole. Not only were they masters of crafting original stories, but they even managed to inject new ideas and twists on existing franchises. In those early days, BioWare was strictly a PC developer, but have slowly transitioned into developing more console-focused experiences and are arguably more known now for these games than their earlier works.

After so many years releasing dozens of games, BioWare has given us some absolute classics -- as well as some major disappointments. No developer is perfect, and BioWare is proof that even sequels to critically acclaimed games can fall short of their predecessor for one reason or another. We felt it was time to look over the entire BioWare catalogue and list their best games of all-time. The top spots in this list in particular were hard to put in order, and depending on the franchise, setting, or gameplay style, you will probably order them slightly differently, but for the most part the games at the top of this list are agreed to be among the best this developer has ever made.

Finding Titans in Anthem can be a game of chance, but it doesn't have to be. Luckily, there are certain missions where you fight one (sometimes even three!) and locations that you can visit in Freeplay where your chance of spotting a Titan is far greater.
