Here's Some Dragon Age 4 Teasers to Keep Your Hopes Alive

Here's Some Dragon Age 4 Teasers to Keep Your Hopes Alive

Yes, BioWare's next project is still rolling along.

Dragon Age 4 is still in development at BioWare, but yesterday, we finally got another glimpse of it. Though it was only a few screens that lasted for a few seconds, this seems to be our first look at Dragon Age 4.

Toward the end of their showcase, EA showed off next-gen projects from their studios. There were three teaser scenes from BioWare which are quite clearly Dragon Age-related, the first of which is the ominous tree you can see just below.

The tree could likely be a vhenadahl, or "tree of the people," which are major landmarks for elven culture. It fits with the general idea of where the plot is headed, after the conclusion of Dragon Age: Inquisition's Trespasser DLC, that we'd see more focus on the elves.

Next, there's the scene where red lyrium, shaped like deep mushrooms, are growing up from what looks like the ruins of a church just below. If you're unfamiliar with the item, red lyrium is an organic matter that thins the Veil; a barrier that, when weakened, allows demonic foes to enter the world in which Dragon Age is set.

You can glimpse a bigger mass of the red lyrium just below. This matter has been a big focal point for the Dragon Age series throughout its history, especially in Dragon Age: Inquisition, where it was utilized for a demonic invasion of the world at large by the antagonist of the game.

And that's it for Dragon Age 4. This is only the second time we've seen any sort of teaser for the game, the first of which was when BioWare's sequel was first announced at The Game Awards back in December 2018, with the tagline "The Dread Wolf Rises."

Previously, we've only heard snippets of information about the sequel. In October 2019 it was revealed that yes, Dragon Age 4 is still a long way away", and before that in April 2019, plans for a canceled version of the game surfaced, that would have focused on heists.

The next Dragon Age game is likely still a ways off, especially as it looks to be targeting next-gen. BioWare didn't have much to show during yesterday's EA Play Live broadcast outside of the teaser, as Anthem's planned overhaul is still in its early stages. It'll probably still be a while before we see the next big BioWare game in action.
