Today's EA Play Live (opens in new tab) event gave us a new - small - look at Dragon Age 4 (opens in new tab) as part of a montage of games that will appear on PS5 (opens in new tab) and Xbox Series X (opens in new tab). It's the first time we've seen the game since a teaser trailer at The Game Awards 2018 (opens in new tab) and even if it was just some pretty concept art, we're grateful for the crumbs.

We didn't get any gameplay, new footage, or even the name uttered aloud during today's showcase, but at least we know it's still in production, and looking promising.

It's been six years since Dragon Age: Inquisition (opens in new tab), a game that ended with the bombshell that one of your companions, Solas, was actually Fen'Harel, the elven god of betrayal. We knew Dragon Age 4 was going to let us see more of the sneaky slaphead, and Bioware has delivered, as confirmed by a blog post (opens in new tab) from the studio in September 2019. 

"I can say... that one of our projects has a large and growing team in Edmonton working through pre-production, and based on the progress I’m seeing, I can confirm that indeed the Dread Wolf rises."

Last we heard (opens in new tab) from the rumor mill, Dragon Age 4 was being built with Anthem's toolset under the code name Morrison and would be a live service game. Casey Hudson, GM of Bioware, clarified this didn't mean the death of single-player Dragon Age.
