Wow what an exciting day! Today, BioWare and Electronic Arts revealed a brand new trailer for Dragon Age: The Veilguard at the Xbox Games Showcase. In this trailer we get a glimpse of Thedas, and we meet your team of seven companions, each with their own rich story to discover and shape – and together you will become The Veilguard.

You’ll unite and lead this team of unforgettable heroes as you take on a terrifying new threat unleashed on the world of Thedas.

Naturally, the Dread Wolf still has an important part in this tale –we haven’t forgotten him by any means – but you and your companions  are the true heart and soul of this new game. We are so excited for you to experience just how strongly we feel about our new heroes and their stories, and how you’ll need to bring them together to save all of Thedas – that we changed the game name to Dragon Age: The Veilguard to better reflect the exciting path that is ahead of you. 

Dragon Age: The Veilguard expands upon the Dragon Age stories, worlds and characters from previous games, where players will enter a vibrant land of rugged wilderness, treacherous labyrinths, and glittering cities – steeped in conflict and secret magics. As a new hero – a character you create – along with your companions, you will challenge and take a stand against a pair of corrupt ancient gods who have broken free from centuries of darkness and are hellbent on destroying the world.

Meet the Companions! As you play, you will be rallying a team of seven companions, each with their own rich lives and deep backstories – and each bringing their own expertise and unique abilities to the fight. Your companions are characters to befriend, lead, grow and even fall in love with. You are never alone. You get to choose who to take into battle with you –  and together you will face down demons, dragons and those corrupt gods on the battlefield.

Amongst these new companions that join the fray, we will recruit allies such as the Veil Jumper Bellara, the intriguing necromancer Emmrich, and the private detective Neve –  all coming from iconic factions in Dragon Age lore, and each possessing individual skill trees and specialized gear for advanced team progression. Dragon Age fans will spot some familiar faces, too, such as the archer Lace Harding who returns to the series as a full time companion.
