"So... you've found me at last. I suspect you have questions."
Solas, the Dread Wolf


The Dread Wolf Rises is the current working title[confirmation needed] of the fourth installment of the Dragon Age video game series.

Announcement Edit

The 2018 Game Awards teaser trailer was released on December 6, 2018. Most of the video shows a close-up view of the lyrium idol, a dwarven artifact uncovered by the Champion of Kirkwall during the events of Dragon Age II. The image shown at the end of the trailer depicts the idol in the center, an unnamed character to the left, and what is likely a wolf to the right. The idol is surrounded by seven circles, two of which have not been greyed out, and the ground appears to be on fire.

At the end of the trailer, Solas's voice can be heard, saying, "So... you've found me at last. I suspect you have questions," echoing his remarks at the end of Trespasser.[1]

DevelopmentEdit

As of late 2018, it has been stated that the game has been in development "for quite a while."[1] It was revealed at the 2018 Video Game Awards.[2] Sources within BioWare have stated that the game will be released no earlier than 2021, and that as of late 2018, the game is without an official name.[3]

Plot Edit

The game starts at some point following the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition, particularly those of Trespasser.

Dragon Age: Knight Errant.


During the events of Dragon Age: Deception #3, an elven servant named Gaius is revealed to be impersonating a Magister in Ventus while reporting to Solas. He reveals that a "weapon imbued with red lyrium" stolen from Kirkwall has been traded away for information. According to writer Nunzio De Filippis this was not something Solas would have approved of.[4]
