Fans searching for even a smidgeon of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf rumor should definitely sit down and take a deep breath. The next iteration in the franchise has been in the works for quite some time, but gamers have only gotten snippets of information about the title. Short cinematic trailers have offered fans hints about the plot, but Bioware has yet to release even a gameplay teaser. According to anonymous sources, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf’s 2023 release date may be a fever dream, and its combat is influenced by Final Fantasy XV, offering players less tactical control over their party members.
Insider Gaming claims to have spoken with numerous anonymous individuals concerning Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, and the news isn’t good. While the title adheres to the gameplay rhythms established in prior games in the franchise, it appears to be venturing even farther into hack and slash territory. Players will be unable to directly control their party members in terms of micromanagement. Instead, they will only be able to give directives in the manner of Mass Effect.
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf also appears to require more time than planned to perfect its features. While the multiplayer component was removed, reports indicate the game preserves a multiplayer feel by having a central hub from which the player would go on missions through teleport mirrors. These tasks will also be utilized to attract partners into the center, who may be outfitted with gear and conversed with in the normal Bioware way.
The game supposedly still has a lot of missing material and prerecorded voice lines, thus its release date in 2023 is uncertain. Players may have to wait until the next year to get a taste of Bioware’s next adventure.
