Following the smash success of Baldur’s Gate 3 last year, it only seems reasonable for other game devs to want to replicate some of that success. A fantasy RPG with a colorful and varied band of classes and races, sounds pretty fun, right? BioWare is hoping to grab some of that BG3 magic with the latest game in their perennial Dragon Age series, Dragon Age: The Veilguard. And the trailer, which you can view below, sure looks upbeat and irreverent!

In the trailer, we get to meet a ragtag band of whosits and whatsits, each with their own specialty. They are: Harding: The Scout; Neve: The Detective; Emmrich: The Necromancer; Taash: The Dragon Hunter; Davrin: The Warden; Bellara: The Veil Jumper; and Lucanis: The Mage Killer. Your player character, the mysterious hooded figure toward the end, will get to be the leader. Pretty good gig if you can get it.

The key art for Dragon Age: The Veilguard shows the player character surrounded by other characters, beasts, and a dragon.

The official synopsis for the game reads:

When corrupt gods break free from centuries of darkness, the odds will be stacked against you. You can’t do this alone. Rally a team of seven companions, each with rich lives and deep backstories. These are characters to befriend, and even fall in love with. Among them, an assassin, a necromancer, and a detective will each bring their own expertise and unique abilities to the fight. You are never alone; decide who to take into battle and together face down demons, dragons and even ancient gods.

The gameplay trailer for Dragon Age: The Veilguard will drop June 11, so come back to take a look at that. Release date for the game is Fall 2024. It will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.
