Last year, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf was finally named and released from his alpha, a sign that his development is going pretty well, and BioWare shared a video telling the story of Solas for the Dragon Age Day. It’s not much, but fans have been able to wait with the animated series Dragon Age: Absolution on netflix. While waiting for the studio and Electronic Arts officially take the floor to tell us more, it is the rumors and leaks that are scrutinized, rightly. So this weekend Insider Gaming published an article discussing the current state of the game, which later resulted in the broadcast on Reddit of gameplay and lots of detail.
To begin with, the rumor that its release is scheduled for 2023 and which is starting to date would be very optimistic, because Dragon Age: Dreadwolf would not yet have all of its features or all of its characters’ dialogues (textual and voiced), in addition to retaining stigmata of changes in its overall direction. This would have taken place in early 2021, transforming it from a multiplayer game into a purely solo title, as Jason Schreier mentioned at the time. Well, there would therefore remain components that are felt in the current experience, of which a central hub at the destinywhich would always play a role. On the side of our companionswhich would always be recruited over the quests, they would therefore populate this hub accessible via a portal and could be equipped according to our wishes as well as receive modifications as we progress. On the other hand, they could not be controlled, like a FFXV.
The short sequence of gameplay and the visuals visible via this link would therefore come from the alpha and from a playtestertaking place in a dungeon attacked by Darkspawn (infused with red lyrium), there Weisshaupt Fortresswith the player embodying a Shadow Keeper equipped with sword and shield, having as companions Davrinanother member of the Shadow Keeper And Rook, a dwarven thief. The objective would be to reach the library by eliminating the enemies, with a dragon attacking from the skies, causing its share of troubles along the way, which would act as a boss with the aim of chaining it.
Real-time clashes compared to God of War (2018)which is not surprising seeing the “L + R” combo that recalls the Spartan Rage and which is attached to a gauge, in addition to the different skills and basic attacks that can be used. It would be possible to jump like in Inquisition and the animations are touted as smooth. The video shows the execution of a kick and a charged sword attack, but nothing more, so hard to tell. In terms of interface for equipment, it obviously reminds Destiny 2 and other recent ones Assassin’s Creedwith the character in the center and several slots serving to equip it with a helm, chest armor, main weapon, shield and various accessories (amulet, belt, rings).
So what do you think of this leaked preview of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf ? While waiting for its release, Inquisition is he still for sale on Amazon.
