Dragon Age: The Veilguard (2024; PC, PS5, Xbox Series)



Who is the Dread Wolf?

Solas, the Dread Wolf. Some say he might be an ancient elven god, but some say not. Others say a betrayer of his people…or a savior who now seeks to rescue them at the cost of your world. His motives are inscrutable and his methods sometimes questionable, earning him a reputation as something of a trickster deity—a player of dark and dangerous games.

Whether you’re new to Dragon Age™ stories or you’ve experienced them all, using Solas’s namesake no doubt suggests a spectrum of endless possibilities on where things may go. But at the core of this, like every past game, is you. If you’re new to Dragon Age, you have no need to worry about not having met our antagonist just yet. He’ll properly introduce himself when the time is right, but we did hint at his return when we announced #TheDreadWolfRises back in 2018.

More Dragon Age: Dreadwolf later this year

We suspect you have questions and they’ll be answered in time. While the game won’t be releasing this year, we’re growing closer to that next adventure. Rest assured, Solas is placing his pieces on the board as we speak. That’s all we have for now, but we hope knowing the official title has sparked some intrigue, as we’ll be talking more about the game later this year!

What do you think #Dreadwolf could mean?

I prefer Dreadwolf. Veilguard sounds too much like Seezeguard, as if we were at a buffet in Thedas. In any case, I still have to play Inquisition before I tackle this game.

I don't know about that trailer. Looks a lot more goofy and cartoony then the previous games. I loved the first 3 games so I'm still hyped for it but that trailer is a let down.

Game looks fun, however I have a question. The last game in the series I played was Dragon Age II, despite always planning to play Dragon Age: Inquisition. Did the last game drop the party control mechanics from the first two games altogether, or is this Mass Effect-esque gameplay an optional playstyle?

It's been like 10 years since I beat Inquisition but I'm pretty sure you could control your party in DA:I but you could also just let the AI do it. It was definitely going more towards Mass Effect style then the previous 2 games but I still thought it was fantastic. And on Dreadwolf even though my initial thoughts on the trailer were middling I have seen some previews of DA fans who have played it and say at least from the limited time they had with it they were very positive on it.

A salad bar at that buffet, to be precise.

Thanks. I love ME but wonder how well I'd like its mechanics regarding combat in a DA game. Not that I haven't played other such games (like The Witcher III: Wild Hunt), but I just don't associate it with DA.
