Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is now The Veilguard

The upcoming title in the popular RPG series from BioWare has been in development for quite a long while. The game originally known as Dragon Age: Dreadwolf promises to bring back the iconic series with a brand new storyline and exciting gameplay innovations but the information we currently have about the game is scarce. So far, only a few teasers and bits of information about the lore and the possible protagonists of the game have been revealed by the developer studio, but this will change very soon. It turns out that Bioware has plenty of surprises in store for the game, and the first one is a name change.



Dragon Age: The Veilguard

Quite unexpectedly and after years in the making, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf has been renamed to Dragon Age: The Veilguard, and all the fans will surely be glad to know that it will finally be revealed very soon. Bioware has shared a publication on its official website where the studio shares the philosophy behind this name change.

"At BioWare, we create worlds of adventure, conflict and companionship, where you’re at the center of it all. As fans of our franchise know, every Dragon Age game has delivered a new standalone story. Set in the world of Thedas, these tales explore epic locales and threats, always thrusting you into a new conflict. Each game also introduces a new lead hero – The Warden, Hawke, The Inquisitor – that you can call your own. You can expect all that, and more, with the new game. And of course, much like your unique hero, it wouldn’t be a Dragon Age game without an amazing cast of companions – right?"

"Each of the seven unique characters that make up your companions will have deep and compelling storylines where the decisions you make will impact your relationships with them – as well as their lives. You’ll unite this team of unforgettable heroes as you take on a terrifying new threat unleashed on the world. Naturally, the Dread Wolf still has an important part in this tale, but you and your companions – not your enemies – are the heart of this new experience."

With that in mind, the studio has decided that Dragon Age: The Veilguard is a name that fits much better the upcoming title. However, the fans are probably more interested in the full reveal that will take place next week, which promises to offer fifteen minutes of gameplay. Rest assured that we will offer you all the information about the reveal and remember that the best deals to pre-order Dragon Age: The Veilguard will be available with our comparator ahead of the game's release.
