EA and BioWare are whetting fans’ appetites with some new short stories that act as a prelude to Dragon Age 4.
Though not its official name, fans only got a proper glimpse at Dragon Age 4 back in August, two years after its initial annoucement.
Now, EA and BioWare have confirmed that another reveal is planned for the upcoming Game Awards on December 10.
What that reveal will entail (be it a cinematic trailer or a first look at gameplay) is unknown, but fans can prepare themselves with a collection of short stories shared on the official website.
The four stories have been written by members of BioWare as part of today’s Dragon Age Day celebrations, an unofficial fan-made event that EA and BioWare contribute to.
These stories apparently ‘paint a picture for the future of Dragon Age,’ as well as provide some kind of insight into what to expect at The Game Awards.
As exciting as this may be for fans, this does come less than a day after the series’ executive producer, Mark Darrah, announced he was leaving BioWare, as well as BioWare’s general manager Casey Hudson.
Darrah hasn’t yet explained why he’s chosen to leave, although he has tried to assure fans that the Dragon Age series is in safe hands, with Christian Dailey, studio director at BioWare Austin, taking over as executive producer and Matthew Goldman remaining as creative director.
The announcements of a Mass Effect trilogy remaster and an entirely new Mass Effect game alleviated some fears, but these sudden departures don’t exactly inspire confidence.
Dragon Age 4 is in development and is currently expected to release in 2022.
