The release date of Dragon Age 4
Despite the fact that the development of the game is currently a Open Secret: Dragon Age 4 has just been officially announced by BioWare. But even now, BioWare is not ready to say much about the game.
"Hey guys, we've been working on a new Dragon Age game for a long time, and I'm pleased to finally annoy its existence," said Mark Darrah, Executive Producer in a BioWare blog post. "While we will not provide any details for the time being, I can tell you that we've built a new team around a core of Dragon Age veterans I've worked with with Dragon Age, Jade Empire, and some of those I've been working on the days of Baldur's Gate.
"I'm so excited to show you even more!"
Back in May 2017, the writer Alexis Kennedy stated that he was part of the story of the game in one Film Interviews Eurogamer: This part of the story, he revealed, is "well separated from other parts of the game." At that point, the game was still clearly in its early stages of development.
A Later From the Kotaku Report It also revealed that some members of the Dragon Age development team had been removed from the title to focus on creating Anthem.
In addition, a recent report from Ve nture Beat indicates that the release date of Dragon Age 4 is at least three years away The title for the fourth installation has not even been chosen iar with the studio ".
Dragon Age 4 News and Rumors
The Game Awards 2018
According to a report by Venture Beat (and understood correctly by Eurogamer) it is likely we will make a sort of announcement regarding Dragon Age 4 received during the The Game Awards 2018. Interestingly, what emerged as this announcement was the game's first 1-minute teaser trailer, which reintroduced Fen & # 39; Harel. the elven god of treachery and Sola of Dragon Age Inquisition.
We have not received details on the gameplay or story, but now BioWare's confirmation is enough to itch the hype move.
Regardless of whether or not BioWare had confirmed it. Dragon Age fans were pretty sure another game would be in progress. On the one hand, because they trusted the power of their willpower, and, on the other, because in recent years BioWare's insistence that something was actually happening. It's the secret that was never really a secret.
The most recent unofficial confirmation comes from executive producer Mark Darrah, who tweeted in January 2018 that he works on both Dragon Age and Anthem, BioWare's next major IP.
Half way through my trip to Barcelona! I show here Anthem internally to EA. I am EP of BOTH DA and Anthem and work next with @Bio_Warner as Game DirectorAnthem, but both franchises are working hard. I am looking forward to sharing more in the future. January 24, 2018
Though he is now The company left the company, BioWare's veteran Mike Laidlaw tweeted that there were a few games in the Dragon Age series back in mid-2017. Previously, Alexis Kennedy was the writer who made a headline news after comments he made in an interview with Eurogamer were considered as semi-official confirmation of the existence of the game and its place in it.
No planned end is planned for DA. There is a developing plan that tends to anticipate two games. https://t.co/6Tp1lP6d5G[19459025(August82017
In the interview, Kennedy was annoyed that he was given "considerable autonomy to work on a storyline that is well separated from other parts of the game."
] "I do not want to overdo the grade [I'm writing]:" Kennedy was trying to add something. "It's nothing grandiose, but it's something special. In Dragon Age, much has been said so far."
History and Character
Each game in the Dragon Age series had a strong emphasis on history and character, and fans will be glad that dragons know them. The age of 4 may not be any different.  After Mark tweeted that he was working on the game, BioWare general manager Casey Hudson intervened with his own ingenious tweet, saying in this tweet that it was too early to discuss details, "but the game would be" on Geschi focus and character ".
I read a lot of Dragon Age feedback, and I think you'll be relieved to see what the team is working on. Story & character focused. Too early to discuss details, but talking about "live" simply means designing a game for continued storytelling after the main story. January 25, 2018
It is not clear if this will be the case, a brand new standalone game or whether it will continue directly from Inquisition. The end of the Inquisition Trespasser DLC certainly suggests that there is a story thread with Solas in which the Inquisitor would pursue the elf to stop his plans.
We already know that there are authors who work on lore and side quests after Alexis Kennedy interviewed Eurogamer in 2017. He acknowledged that he was working on a part of the game that is "well separated" from the rest and focuses on a few lore that is not widely used.
Kennedy, who has worked on titles such as Sunless Sea and Fallen London, said the theme would not come as a surprise to those familiar with his work. For us, this means that his quest (or quest) involves thoughtful decisions, themes of tragic love and desire, and an underlying sense of discomfort.
New Live Elements
The Kotaku January 2018 report on Anthem and Dragon Age mentions that the sources informed Kotaku that Dragon Age had been "rebooted" more "live" to implement elements "in the game.
Of course, there was some fan-panic in response to EA's growing preference for service-based games. Fans expressed concern that BioWare would be launching the Dragon Age series on a […] Destiny 2 online multiplayer route.
That does not seem to be the case. In his tweet Casey Hudson also noted that the considered "live elements" are indeed a way to continue the story of the game after the main story is complete. We've already seen this in games like Assassin's Creed Origins .
Things we would like to see
A World Like Dragon Age: Inquisition
We hope the next Dragon Age game has a map similar to Dragon Age: Inquisition. We think we hope it's big and open without being overwhelming. It was the perfect follow up to the closed and repeating charts of Dragon Age 2 and we want this approach to continue.
Discover more of Thedas
There is one very notable part of Thedas that players are allowed to explore, and that is the Tevinter Empire. The Empire, once the most powerful nation in Thedas, is a shadow of its former self. Its history, the stratified social structure, and the maintenance of a magocracy would make it an immensely interesting and diverse part of Thedas players can explore while the franchise team continues to explore issues such as social injustice, power, and prejudice.
The fact that the area serves as a reference in all other Dragon Age games is enough to give the impression that Dragon Age 4 is a suitable environment. However, the end of the Dragon Age: Inquisition Trespasser DLC gives the impression that this is even more likely as he sees the Inquisitor stabbing a dagger into a map of the Empire with a vow to track down Solas.
Solve this cliffhanger
Our previous point brings us to this point – we really want Sola's plot to be further explored. He is the perfect focus for the next game and the player's approach to him is the perfect narrative.
