Dragon Age Day – Blue Wraith Comic Limited Edition & More

Dragon Age Day - Blue Wraith Comic Limited Edition

The community and developers from Bioware have come together for the Dragon Age Day on December 4th, following a similar tradition to the sister franchise of Mass Effect with its N7 Day. Not only was it a special day to celebrate all things Thedas, but this year also marks the 10th anniversary of the Dragon Age franchise, with the first game in the series, DA: Origins, originally hitting the market in November 2009.

With this huge milestone for the series and the reassurance that the Dread Wolf is still rising, many have expected this D4 day to be special. However, Dragon Age Day 2019 is similar to the Mass Effect Day 2019 in more ways than one.

The developers from Bioware have taken to the company’s Twitter to share what Dragon Age franchise means to them and to congratulate the fans on 10 years of adventures together:

Check out Bioware’s Twitter to see the team’s personal messages as to what Dragon Age means to them, who is their favorite character and more: John Epler, Patrick Weekes, Casey Hudson, Lukas Kristjanson, Karin Weekes, and others.

While it is slightly disappointing yet absolutely expected to not hear anything about the new upcoming Dragon Age game, it is thrilling to see the team engage the community and share their passion for the game that is only matched by fans of Thedas.

To celebrate this special day, Bioware also announced huge discounts for all Dragon Age games through December 10:

And finally, the last but not the least is the special limited edition of the upcoming comic about everyone’s favorite Dragon Age 2 elf companion. Fenris makes his comics debut in this canonical continuation of BioWare’s dark fantasy epic! With the fanatical Qunari seeking to topple the Tevinter mageocracy, one powerful young mage’s desperate search for her father brings her face-to-face with a notorious mage hunter–Fenris, the Blue Wraith.

  • Find out what Fenris has been up to since the incident in Kirkwall!

If you have been out of the loop on Dragon Age since the release of Trespasser, allow me to bring you up to speed:

  • During The Game Awards 2018, the developers from Bioware have been on hand with a short cryptic teaser video called “Dread Wolf Rises” featuring Solas and painfully familiar Red Lyrium Idol. Hawke disapproves.
  • August 2nd, 2018. In Bioware’s Mid-Summer Update, Casey Hudson revealed that “we hear loud and clear the interest in BioWare doing more Dragon Age and Mass Effect, so rest assured that we have some teams hidden away working on some secret stuff that I think you’ll really like – we’re just not ready to talk about any of it for a little while…
  • September 2018, Casey Hudson has taken to Twitter to reassure fans that “Some weird stuff going around about how our future games will be influenced by Anthem. Of course, when we do a Dragon Age game it will be designed from the ground up based on what Dragon Age should be. Same with Mass Effect… Anthem is a specific thing that’s unique from our other IPs in many ways. What carries forward is what we learn about game design, which is a constant evolution.”
  • In April 2019, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier published a lengthy investigation into the past and present of Dragon Age 4
  • Bioware September Update 2019 confirmed that the Dread Wolf is rising
  • Kotaku’s article on the possible Anthem overhaul briefly mentions that Dragon Age 4 is still in development at Bioware

So far this is the extent of the knowledge about the upcoming Dragon Age 4. Not much, but it is nice knowing it is coming sooner or later.
