But the person in charge of Bioware reminds us that there is still a lot to do
The Dragon Age RPG series has been on hiatus since 2014 with the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Electronic Arts is working on a new title in the franchise, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf and the game’s development has reached the alpha stage and is now playable from start to finish.
In February, Bioware General Manager Gary McKay said that the game was entering the production phase and now, eight months later, the alpha phase has been reached. “Now, for the first time, we can experience the entire game, from the opening scenes of the first mission to the end. We can see, hear, feel and play as a coherent experience,” McKay said.
The start of the alpha phase does not mean that the development of the game is in its final stage, but it is an important moment, as the head of the studio says: “First and foremost, now we can focus on bringing the visual fidelity to its final form. […] We solicited feedback from several sources, including our community board members, each with unique perspectives and experiences, (as well as) our QA team and a lot of internal testing. “
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf will now undergo refinement
With the start of a new phase of production, developers can now assess “game pacing, how relationships develop over time and player progression, as well as narrative coherence, essentially how the story unfolds.”
We can take the story we’ve written and see if we can express it well through characters, dialogue, cinematography, and most importantly, the player’s journey. Now that we’ve played the whole game, we can do it again. And polish what matters most to our fans. ” adds McKay.
A Bioware executive says that now that he can play Dragon Age: Dreadwolf all the way through, he even has his favorite parts. He reveals that with the new game, they will be able to bring parts of the world that were previously only mentioned in other titles to be explored in the new game.
Gary McKay says there’s still a lot to do and he’ll continue to be “transparent” with fans about the game’s development, noting that the team is also busy developing a new Mass Effect.
