BioWare Announces a New Dragon Age Game With a Cryptic Trailer and Hashtag

#TheDreadWolfRises

BioWare already released a new trailer for its upcoming live-service game, Anthem, tonight but the company surprise dropped a new teaser for what looks like a Dragon Age project, rumored to be Dragon Age 4.

The trailer didn't reveal much on plot or characters, as Dragon Age 4 is rumored to be very early in development and years away from release. But we got a hashtag for #TheDreadWolfRises. According to Dragon Age lore the Dread Wolf is another name for Fen'Harel the elven god of betrayal.

The Dread Wolf is embedded deep in elven lore of the series. BioWare has teased a new Dragon Age project in BioWare general manager's regular company blogs. Most recently Hudson told fans to keep an eye out for Dragon Age news in December (aka The Game Awards).

In a blog post following the trailer BioWare executive producer Mark Darrah says that a new team of core Dragon Age veterans, and developers on Jade Empire and some who've worked with Darrah since Baldur's Gate will be working on the new Dragon Age.

No word yet on what a new Dragon Age will look like, but keep an eye out on the Dread Wolf. It rises.
