BioWare Has A Brand-New Name For The Next Dragon Age

Almost four years after teasing 'Dragon Age 4' at The Game Awards 2020, EA and BioWare are about to re-reveal the game - and it has a brand-new title. The highly-anticipated Dragon Age sequel is now called Dragon Age: The Veilguard, and we're getting a big gameplay reveal very soon.

In a new blog post over at the EA developer's website, executive producer Gary McKay dug a little deeper into the reasoning behind the team's name change. In short, as the game progressed and its characters became more integral to the experience, BioWare wanted to rename the game to better reflect its overall direction.

"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.

So, to capture what this game is all about, we changed the name as the original title didn’t show just how strongly we feel about our new heroes, their stories and how you’ll need to bring them together to save all of Thedas. We proudly introduce to you Dragon Age: The Veilguard."

As we mentioned up at the top, the team is about to show off The Veilguard in a big way. EA and BioWare will share "over 15 minutes of gameplay from the opening moments of the game" on June 11th at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST.
