Dragon Age Dreadwolf looking to get romance options just right

By Sean Lawson,

BioWare is hard at work crafting our next foray into the Dragon Age universe, and while we are patiently waiting for this next instalment of the series, it's been revealed Dragon Age Dreadwolf's alpha milestone has been reached.

Dragon Age Dreadwolf looks to be making positive progress after BioWare announced that it has reached the Alpha milestone for the next instalment in the Dragon Age series. The developers are looking to dive into the pacing of the story and how the romances come across to the player as they traverse the world of Dragon Age Dreadwolf. BioWare perfecting all of this and providing players with the perfect experience when the game launches in a possible 2023 window is exactly what we like to hear here at TT.

Dragon Age Dreadwolf is one step closer to revealing our romance options

It's been over eight months since we have had any form of an update on Dragon Age Dreadwolf, and now finally we have received a fantastic insight into where the game is at thanks to a blog post over on EA's official website from Gary McKay, the general manager at BioWare. Dragon Age Dreadwolf has officially hit its Alpha stage and is now a playable experience "from the opening scenes of the first mission to the very end." This also means we are one step closer to hearing about all the possible romance options that lay in wait for us.

Following the announcement that the game can be played from start to end, McKay says: "Of course, the game is not finished by any means, but Alpha is one of the most important game development milestones for a number of reasons. First and foremost, we can now turn our sights toward bringing the visual fidelity to its final form and iterating on gameplay features.

"Additionally, we can now evaluate the game's pacing, how relationships evolve over time, and the player’s progression, as well as narrative cohesion — essentially how the story comes together. We can take the story we’ve written and see if we’re expressing it well through the characters, dialogue, cinematics, and ultimately, the player’s journey. Now that we have the ability to do a complete playthrough, we can iterate and polish on the things that matter most to our fans."

Romance is an integral part of our roleplaying experiences, not just in the likes of Dragon Age Origins or the Mass Effect series, but all games that provide this sort of gameplay element — yet, none do it quite like BioWare. Hearing that this is now one of the many focuses BioWare is eagle-eyeing is very exciting and we are sure that the developers are aware of how invested we as fans get into our love stories — so they best make these the juiciest romances to date.

While we are probably still a ways off from seeing the new characters and romance options, knowing that the game is now in a fully playable state from start to finish is incredibly exciting and we at the TT news team are waiting with bated breath for another update. Dragon Age Inquisition was an incredible experience that finished with a certain character's story being left wide-open for a plethora of possibilities — and we want to know what happens next.

We can't wait to see what BioWare has cooked up and what badass weapons and skills we can use to decimate our foes whilst we travel around with our romance option having a ball of a time. Dragon Age Inquisition even made it onto our best RPG list and we hope Dreadwolf will as well. Are you guys excited for Dragon Age Dreadwolf? Looking forward to seeing what romances lay ahead?
