During the opening ceremony of Gamescom 2020, the developers of Bioware released a sign of life for Dragon Age 4. A look behind the scenes shows mainly developers, but also a lot of concept art and even isolated "gameplay" scenes.

The last time we talked about Dragon Age 4 was when it was revealed that it won't be released until 2022 at the earliest, but that was almost a year ago. Now there is finally new food for the valiantly waiting fans. As part of the Gamescom opening in 2020, the devs from Bioware talked about their goals in a video, named the strengths of Studio Bioware and provided a few insights into the development:

Lots of concept art related to Dragon Age 4 and engine footage

In addition to a veritable slide show of concept images showing exotic locations, magical creatures and new characters, and motion capture recordings, the video even shows fairly tangible engine scenes. These do not represent the final scenes in any way, but give a good impression of the graphics. This does not stand out so much spontaneously from the still gorgeous Inquisition. But the skills of a warrior with a shield make a difference and are well staged.

Dragon Age Video does not please all fans

The reactions of Dragon Age fans to the video vary. While many are of course happy to finally hear something new from the beloved series, others expect more: The game has been in development for years and the current lack of in-game scenes is rather unsettling.

How is it for you guys? Are you happy that there is at least something? Or should the developers wait until they can show scenes from the game itself? The comments section is waiting for you!
