The developer released a behind the scenes look at Dragon Age 4 and sprinkled in some in-game footage of the upcoming game. The story is set to be based around a main character who is powerless and focused on a world where the people in charge refuse to address the issues facing them. The developer revealed that the game is still very much in early production.
“The things that you can expect in the next instalment are going to be stories that focus on the people around you,” the developers revealed. “And the friends and family you make.”
Some of these new characters were teased as shots of the actors recording lines for their parts were highlighted. Bellara and Davrin were unveiled to be two new characters coming to Dragon Age 4.
As for gameplay, many new environments were shown from snowy mountains to dwarven ruins. “In the next Dragon Age you get an opportunity to see new things, new places, and interact with people who lived and grew up in these spaces as well,” BioWare explained.
Elements of the combat were shown and gave the impression combat will be more hands-on than past instalments. The playable character was shown facing foes with their shield held up and dodge rolling out the way of incoming attacks.
