The player takes the embodiment of Hawke who is the Champion of Kirkwall. The players get to choose the race of the protagonist to Rogue, Mage, or Warrior. The race of the character governs different weapons and fighting styles during the gameplay. One of the main reasons that made DA 2 gameplay boring was the redundant environments. If we look beyond the obvious flaws of the game, DA 2 is still a pretty well-rounded game. Maybe not as impressive as the other parts of the franchise but it’s pretty enjoyable.

This breach acts as a portal between the physical world and the world of spirits. The player of the game is portrayed as the sole survivor of this breach and has apparently developed the ability to close the segments of the breach.
The player meets several challenges in his heroic mission to completely seal the breach. Do you have what it takes to stop the Darkspawn in their treacherous intentions? Find out in this action-packed Role Playing Game.

The news that has caused the highest uproar amongst the Dragon Age fandom recently is the official confirmation of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. The cinematic trailer was launched during the 2020 Game Awards. The trailer hints at the possibility of a fight brewing between Solas & Varric. This speculation is based on the narrator’s voice sounding uncannily like Varric.
There have been countless story speculations surfacing since the trailer was released. According to various rumors that are circulating over the internet, the game may be released in 2023 or 2024 at the latest. We do not know exactly when Dreadwolf will be out. The graphic quality & intriguing storyline that is portrayed in the trailer is already spewing our excitement and level of expectations from Dreadwolf.
Dreadwolf has been under development for a while now. So, we can certainly expect the developers to reveal the release date very soon.
Dragon Age Spin-offs
We have covered all the main games of the Dragon Age franchise in the previous section of this post. Apart from the main storyline, Dragon Age also released Spin-offs and flash games from time to time to keep the fandom hooked. Unfortunately, the spin-offs did not succeed in harboring the legacy of this franchise. Due to this very reason, all these games led to the brutal fate of cancelation. However, we decided to cover these games in this section to commemorate the contribution they once added to the Dragon Age Franchise.
1. Dragon Age Journeys
|Release Date||22nd October 2009|
|Developer||Bioware, EA 2D|
Dragon Age Journeys was the first tactical flash game made for free play by the joint venture of Bioware & EA 2D. The game did not receive the anticipated response from the players and was thus canceled after only 3 chapters. The game does still appear on some websites but does not load due to detachment from EA servers.
2. Dragon Age Legends
|Release Date||16th March 2011|
|Initial Release Platforms||Facebook, Google +|
The Dragon Age Legends was a free-to-play flash game that was launched as a spin-off to the Dragon Age 2 main storyline. This game was released as a replacement for Dragon Age Journeys. Unfortunately, much like Dragon Age Journeys, Legends also failed to muster much success and eventually failed to retain its place on the game platforms. The game was then reduced to an offline download with a preset storyline & characters.
The game took place in the city of Kaiten where the protagonist plays beside an NPC named Ravi. The player had to devise a strategy to rescue the son of Ravi in their heroic expedition.
5. Heroes of Dragon Age
|Release Date||5th December 2013|
|Developer||EA Capital Games|
|Game Status||Cancelled on 24th January 2023|
Heroes of Dragon Age was yet another spin-off of the legendary Dragon Age Series but specifically for mobile platforms. The game presented a role-playing element in the pre-existing storylines of various Dragon Age Arcs. Basically, this game provided an alternative angle to the main storyline. To keep players more interested in the game, developers added a card collection element in the game as well. The most outstanding feature of the game was probably the art style and stunning visuals that blew life into the otherwise simplistic gameplay.
Other than this, Heroes of Dragon Age did not provide any backstory or canon events to the main timeline of the story. The game had average user activity and the cancelation of the game did cause only a little uproar from the community.
6. Dragon Age: The Last Court
|Release Date||November 2014|
|Deactivation Date||17th November 2020|
The last spin-off of the Dragon Age franchise was Dragon Age: The Last Court. The game was also a part of the Dragon Age Keep expansion. The Last Court was a card game that comprises the player taking on challenges and earning rewards. The game could be easily played on your standard web browser without any advanced system requirements. The simple text-based game turned out to be a good time killer for the Dragon Age fans.
Fans did not hesitate to express their disappointment upon the cancellation of the game on various social media platforms. Despite all the attempts to make EA bring back the card game, fans have only tasted disappointment yet. However, with the soon-anticipated release of Dreadwolf fans have more exciting things to look forward to.
