BioWare has provided fans with an update on the current state of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, the fourth core edition in the long-running RPG franchise. Dreadwolf, which was first mentioned in 2018, is the next major project that BioWare will most likely release. Despite this, it appears that the game is still a long way from seeing the light of day.
BioWare announced today in a new blog post on the Electronic Arts website that Dragon Age: Dreadwolf had attained Alpha status. In brief, this implies that the entire game is now playable from beginning to end, resulting in what BioWare refers to as a “cohesive experience.”
While this is a step forward for BioWare, the game is still a long way from being ready for release.
“Of course, the game is far from done, but Alpha is one of the most critical game development milestones for a variety of reasons,” BioWare GM Gary McKay noted.
“We also want to stay open and honest with you, our community, and keep you up to speed on what we’re working on. We hope you’ve enjoyed our Dreadwolf development updates this year, and we hope to share more in the future.”
Despite being known about for quite some time, we’ve seen very nothing of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf outside of a few cinematic trailers and test video. However, given that the game has already achieved Alpha status, this might alter in the coming months. Regardless of when we get our next significant look at Dreadwolf, it’s encouraging to know that development is proceeding apace. If all goes well, it could debut around 2024, but that’s just my best guess.
