Dragon Age Dreadwolf Release Date Rumors, Story, and Gameplay

Dragon Age Dreadwolf has been in development for a long time. It’s been almost a decade since its predecessor, Dragon Age Inquisition, launched and it’s finally time to start talking about the Dragon Age Dreadwolf release date as he emerges from the shadows.

Fans of the role-playing series know that Bioware delivered a giant bombshell at the end of Dragon Age Inquisition, and we’re (im)patiently waiting for the next installment to see how the story unfolds.

That said, we’ve compiled everything we know about Dragon Age Dreadwolf’s release date, the game’s story, and what we’ve seen of it so far. There are spoilers for the upcoming series, so be warned.

Dragon Age Dreadwolf Release Date Rumors

We I don’t know a release date for Dragon Age Dreadwolf yet, but rumors suggest it will be released in late 2023.. These rumors come from GamesBeat, who spoke to people with insider knowledge about the game. GamesBeat’s source made it clear that the role-playing game is on track for a 2023 release.

Given how close we are to the end of the year, we suspect that if that date still holds true, we’ll most likely see Dragon Age Dreadwolf release in late 2023 – most likely just before the holiday season.

The game was officially revealed at The Game Awards 2018 and has continued development ever since. The last entry in the series, Dragon Age Inquisition, was released in 2014, so it’s been almost a full decade since we’ve played a Dragon Age game.

History of Dragon Age Dreadwolf

Dragon Age Dreadwolf takes place after the cliffhanger events of Dragon Age Inquisition and its DLC. The “Dreadwolf” refers to the revelations that (incoming spoilers; come back now) Solas was the evil Dreadwolf who had been opposing you all along. So, we can expect this game to revolve around battling Solas and his Darkspawn antics.

Bioware published a Codex entry for the game in a blog post. The Codex entry refers to Brother Genitivi, a Chantry scholar who appears in previous games and is a historian who writes about the culture and events of the people of Thedas.

During the trailer (below), an idol is seen between the figures of a wolf and an elf with an outstretched hand. The details are light on the plot, but it can be assumed that this is an important reference to Solas and his legacy, and the idol will most likely play a central role in Dragon Age Dreadwolf.

Dragon Age Dreadwolf Game

The last we saw of Dragon Age Dreadwolf is in The Game Awards 2020 trailer. It hints at the return of Darkspawn and ends with a teaser about Solas.

Although it’s not about gameplay, it gives us a brief overview of the game and what we can expect from its tone.

Although not confirmed for The Game Awards, BioWare continues to tease more information about the game later this year, so hopefully we’ll see some Dragon Age Dreadwolf gameplay in December.
