Developer BioWare has just announced that Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, the upcoming sequel in the hit series, has officially completed its Alpha milestone, a key phase in the game production process. That basically means the game has a full playable experience, and can now move into cementing its final features. Here’s the big announcement from BioWare’s feed:
Dragon Age remains one of the most acclaimed adventures in its genre, weaving together complex lore with fun settings. Its mythology has sometimes been expanded at the expense of its gameplay, as previous titles had a few annoying mechanic issues. But these hardly compromised the decision-driven storytelling, which is very effective.
The latest sequel has remained fairly quiet. It barely announced the title last June, revealed that Solas is the focus, and reinforced that players will be asked to make key choices again.
Now, BioWare is seeking out tactical feedback and reviewing their new story. They revealed that players will be able to visit Minrathous, which has enormous potential, and is basically a reward for longtime fans who are genuinely invested in the lore.
Based on the pacing of similar titles, it’s a bit easier to speculate on a potential release window. Fan communication is always appreciated, and it sets proper expectations.
Surprisingly, BioWare randomly revealed in their official blog post that they have a team hard at work on “a new single-player Mass Effect game”, and a fresh update for Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Mass Effect is one of the most beloved science-fiction games in the industry, with large scale gameplay balanced by well-written characters. The original trilogy was recently remastered for the Legendary Edition, adding a modern makeover and interface, so interest in the series has been renewed lately.
