Dragon Age 4 has been officially named Dragon Age: Dreadwolf Game. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of a new BioWare RPG, but don’t forget there are plenty of people working to bring you all those wonderful adventures. One of those development teams just voted to unionize.
There was an earlier report about the Dragon Age 4 QA team coming together, then titled, and now it turned out to be true. As shared on Twitter, KWS Edmonton United has “unanimously voted 16-0 and will form a union.” KWS has previously supported BioWare projects like the Mass Effect Legendary Edition and the Legacy of the Sith expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, and is also lending its QA talents to the studio for Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. KWS is located in Edmonton, the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta. Covid cases averaged 1,000 a day when the unionization report appeared, and health concerns were a major driving force behind unionization. While that number of cases has since dropped, it’s great to see KWS vote in the affirmative nonetheless. More details about the organization will come later.
More details on Dreadwolf will come later as well. We don’t know much about the upcoming RPG at the moment, but even the name carries a lot of weight. If you’re wondering who Dreadwolf is, here’s the short version: It’s Fen’Harel, the elven god of trickery and betrayal. Dragon Age: Inquisition party member Solas was revealed to be the incarnation of the deity, kicking off the events of the new game. Get ready for a lot of fan theories.
As far as concrete information, we don’t know much. We’ve seen concept art for a new character class, combining archery with magical abilities. After the game’s senior creative director left BioWare, there was concern about the status of the new game, but Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is still on track for a 2023 release.
