3 things we’d like revealed about Dragon Age next month and the 1 thing that’s guaranteed

Every gaymer around has heard of Dragon Age. Often due to its fantastic LGBT portrayal, as well as it’s stellar writing and huge community that dedicates itself to writing amazing fanfiction, and creating incredible fanart. Both of these things needed more than ever, thanks to the long wait for Dragon Age 4.

We’re not complaining. We’re very aware of the struggles BioWare have been under, and we’re more than happy to wait.

That said, it was recently teased on Twitter that December 4th would be an important day for Dragon Age fans. With the full tweet from BioWare stating: ‘today marks 10 years of Dragon Age! This year we’re excited to join the community’s party on December 4th and celebrate a decade together in the world we all love. See you on 12/4 for Dragon 4ge Day!’

As expected, everyone went wild with speculation on what could be revealed on the day. We too have our own theories, based on nothing but our rabid desire to have more BioWare goodness in our lives.

A teaser for Dragon Age 4

While we don’t think that we’ll be as lucky to get an actual trailer revealing Dragon Age 4, especially as it seems to still be in very early development, a teaser trailer isn’t too hard to imagine.

During the Video Game Awards last year, fans were overjoyed to hear a short monologue from none other than Solas. Whether we’ll hear something like that from him again remains to be seen.

Dragon Age Remasters

Dragon Age 4

Yes you can already play Dragon Age Inquisition on the PS4, PC and Xbox One, and yes, that’s a great game and all… But, and this is a real big but, it’s no Origins and 2, now is it?

Slandering aside, fans have been begging BioWare for years for both Mass Effect and Dragon Age remasters. Whether that’ll actually happen remains to be seen, but we can’t deny that we want it all the same. Hell, we’ll even accept it on Switch if need be!

Crushing disappointment

Believe it or not, this isn’t a slight at BioWare but our own expectations.

No matter whether it’s a reveal of something extraordinary or not, it’s almost guaranteed to let someone down. Even worse, there might not even be a reveal at all. Which means that we’ll, along with the majority of the crestfallen community will be spending the rest of our day crying into our pillows. Please think of us during these troubled times.
