Current news[edit | edit source]
There it is, fellow Thedosians. Out of the blue, BioWare have released a sneak preview of the the next installment of the Dragon Age series, for IGN's gamescom 2020. Unlike the previous video, this one is entirely devoted to the next Dragon Age, and it is chock full of concrete information, ranging from character names, voice actors, to concept art and behind the scenes of animation production.
In addition, the official website of https://www.dragonage.com has been updated, and a tag line was added, that reads "The world needs a new hero. Will you answer the call?". However, the website is not yet fully functional, and the link to "more updates" is currently broken.
You can watch the video here.
The video starts with Casey Hudson, the current general manager for BioWare, who previously worked on the original Mass Effect trilogy; introducing this sneak preview, and describes the game as still being in very early stages of production.
The videos features Mark Darrah - Executive Producer, Gr…
In an ocean of silence surrounding the production of the next Dragon Age, a droplet of news will seem like spotting a glimpse of land over the horizon.
During their annual EA Play, in the segment about the "future of gaming", i.e. the next-gen consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X, EA's Chief Studios Officer by the name of Laura Miele talks about using technology in EA's future games. She mentions BioWare, as images of what appears to be the next Dragon Age installment show on screen, and she says "BioWare imagines and creates worlds where you become the hero of your own story, and we're using this next generation of technology to make these fantasy worlds your reality".
The full 50 minutes video can be watched here and the segment in question starts at 44:10.
Here are the screenshots of images shown in the presentation. Potential spoilers for Dragon Age 4 to follow, so be warned.
The first image appears to show some kind of a large tree, possibly in a graveyard, as there are urns and co…
A new Dragon Age comic has been announced for release on January 15th, 2020.
Entitled "Dragon Age: Blue Wraith", the 3-issue mini-series will feature Fenris prominently. According to a release from Comicbook.com, "Dragon Age: Blue Wraith starts off with the fanatical Qunari seeking to topple the Tevinter mageocracy. Caught in the middle, one powerful young mage’s desperate search for her father brings her face-to-face with a notorious mage hunter—Fenris, the Blue Wraith."
The creative team for the comic will feature writers Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, with art by Fernando Heinz Furukawa and covers by Sachin Teng.
Good News Everyone!
Behold our long silence is now broken and we are made whole once more. After a long silence we finally have some proper dragon age news for you, Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights, has been announced! Already there is a great deal of speculation that much like Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne, Dragon Age: Asunder and Dragon Age: The Masked Empire, this is the latest installment in bioware's trend of building up to the next game by doing a book about the setting beforehand to further flesh it out and build up hype. Unlike previous titles though, this one will not be a novel but rather an anthology of short stories set in Tevinter.
So all of this has naturally furthered speculation that the game's setting will be in the Tevinter Imperium. On the cover is a depiction of a Grey Warden, a Qunari and an elf who seems to have similar marking to Fenris. So hopefully this will be enough to tide us over until the next game. Hang in there gang! Maker Watch Over You.
After a long wait, BioWare has released a new teaser trailer for Dragon Age.
Accompanying the trailer is a new blog post written by Mark Darrah & Matthew Goldman. Goldman states "We’ve gathered our strongest team yet and are venturing forth on the most epic quest ever!".
Read the blog here.
Here's hoping it won't be such a long wait until we hear more news.

The book is available for purchase at Darkhorse for $19.99
There is also an interview with Varric included below:
Interviewer: Thank you so much for finding the time in your busy schedule for us; it’s truly an honor! And why don’t we just jump off from there: You’re an adventurer, known for your exploits alongside both the Champion of Kirkwall and the Inquisitor — you’re a best-selling writer — and you’re the Viscount of Kirkwall, a major trade city in the Free Marches with plenty of its own problems. How do you find time for it all?
Ser Varric Tethras: It’s not finding time that’s the challenge. The real obstacle is Seneschal Bran. Adventures don’t follow schedules, and neither do… well, any of Kirkwall’s problems, to be …
A new Dragon Age comic series will be released in October 2018.
On June 29, 2018, Dark Horse Comics announced that the creative team behind Dragon Age: Knight Errant would return for the three-part Dragon Age: Deception. Writers Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, artist Fernando Heinz Furukawa, colorist Michael Atiyeh, and cover artist Sachin Teng are all returning for this new series.
The first issue will be released on October 10, 2018.
In addition, BioWare and Dark Horse have several other collaborations set to release later this year: Dragon Age: Hard in Hightown on July 31, 2018, Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne Deluxe Edition on September 18, 2018, and Dragon Age: The Calling Deluxe Edition on October 17, 2018.
I've just received following email from the Wikia/Fandom support (also available here):
Hello from FANDOM,
On May 25th, 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a new European data protection regulation, will go into effect. Unfortunately, in order to comply with this regulation, we will remove the Monobook skin from our network as it is not possible to bring it into compliance.
We understand that this is a drastic step and is an inconvenience for you and your community but we must be in compliance with this new regulation. For more information about the GDPR, please see https://www.eugdpr.org/gdpr-faqs.html
First thing first: Given that the DA Wiki has always been one of the few that are actually optimized for Monobook, is it ready for the irreversible switch to the Oasis skin?
Secondly, I dunno about you, but the lack of transparency about how exactly Monobook isn't compliant with the GDPR (you don't see Wikipedia abandon it, after all) and the shortness of this notic…
You can now pre-oreder the deluxe editions of 'The Stolen Throne' and 'The Calling' as well as 'Dragon Age Library Edition Volume 2'.
The deluxe editions of the novels will feature brand new illustrations; foil stamped cover bound in supple faux leather; and a ribbon bookmark.
The 'Dragon Age Library Edition Volume 2' is an oversized hardcover book that collects Dragon Age: Magekiller #1-#5 and Dragon Age: Knight Errant #1-#5 and features creator commentary and behind-the-scenes material.
Hi all! This is a quick note to inform the community that based on the conversation here, we are moving away from the forums and focusing on the discussions.
Because of this, the forums are now archived.
Firstly, here is some recent BioWare news you may or may not be familiar with.
Following an unsuccessful launch of Mass Effect: Andromeda, the BioWare studio responsible for the series, BioWare Montreal, was shut down and absorbed by EA Motive. The future of Mass Effect is not clear.
Casey Hudson, the project director for Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3, has left BioWare in 2014, but returned to BioWare some six months ago to replace Aaryn Flynn as the general manager. Recently he has stated that the the production on the next Dragon Age game was completely rebooted to "add more live elements". Naturally, with it being EA, the fans assumed it means EA are adding lootboxes a'la Star Wars: Battlefront II fiasco. But, Hudson was quick to clarify (or at least he tried to) that by "live" he meant "designing a game for continued storytelling after the main story". Whether that means spin off books/comics, DLC, multiplayer - nobody knows.
But less vaguely, recently Kotaku reported that EA have pushed back t…
Good News Everyone!
In a more bizarre twist, Varric Tethras' pulp-noir novella, Hard In Hightown is undergoing de-fictionalization and will be released as a full book.
Prolific dwarven author and heroic companion of the Dragon Age games, Varric Tethras brings us the collected edition of his breakthrough crime-noir drama, Hard in Hightown (with help from his trusted human confidante, Mary Kirby)! This volume is beautifully illustrated by Stefano Martino, Álvaro Sarraseca, Andres Ponce, and Ricardo German Ponce Torres, with a painted cover by E.M. Gist!
Twenty years of patrols have chiseled each and every stone of the Kirkwall streets into city guardsmen Donnen Brennokovic. Weary and weathered, Donnen is paired with a recruit so green he might as well have leaves growing out of his armor. When the mismatched pair discover a dead magistrate bleeding out on the flagstones, they’re caught up in a clash between a shadowy organization known only as the Executors and a secretive group of Cha…
On October 12, 2017, Mike Laidlaw, Lead Designer of Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 and Creative Director of Dragon Age: Inquisition, announced that he was leaving BioWare after 14 years.
It's with a mix of emotions that I'm announcing my time with BioWare has ended. After 14 years and a chance to work on Jade Empire, Mass Effect and all things Dragon Age it's time for me to move on.
In my time at BioWare I have been lucky to work with some of the most talented and hardworking people in the industry. It's been an honor to be part of the Dragon Age team, and I have every confidence that the world we've created together is in good hands and I'm excited for the road ahead.
For the near future, I plan to spend my time reconnecting with all the amazing games and worlds that my peers have created, and I look forward to sharing those experiences with all of you on Twitch and Twitter.
To everyone who's taken the time to share feedback and experiences, your amazing cosplays and artistic cre…
