With EA and BioWare previously having confirmed that they would be revealing Dragon Age: Dreadwolf in full this summer, and with leaks insisting that the action RPG is set to launch in 2024 itself, there’s been no shortage of speculation on when in the coming days we’ll be seeing it exactly- though there have, interestingly enough, also been claims that the game will be appearing in an unexpected form. More specifically, it’s been claimed that Dragon Age: Dreadwolf has been renamed.

That has now been made official. BioWare has announced that Dragon Age: Dreadwolf has indeed been officially renamed, and is now going to be called Dragon Age: The Veilguard. What’s the reason behind this new subtitle? As per BioWare GM Gary McKay, unlike the previous subtitle, The Veilguard helps reflect the game’s emphasis on its core cast of characters, rather than on the Dread Wolf (who will still remain an important part of the story).

“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,” McKay says.

The studio has also revealed additional details on the game, revealing that once again, players will be stepping into the shoes of a new protagonist, as has been the case with each new Dragon Age game. Additionally, The Veilguard will also feature seven companion characters.

“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,” McKay says. ” 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.”

And when exactly will we get our first look at the game? BioWare has confirmed that it will be premiering a gameplay reveal for Dragon Age: The Veilguard on YouTube on June 11, at 8 AM Pacific. The reveal will be over 15 minutes long and showcase gameplay from the game’s opening section. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days.
