Some signs that luckily, more than related to the game itself, were derived from the organizational problems that BioWare has suffered in recent years when working on multiple projects at the same time. Unfortunately, tensions between EA’s financial goals and what Bioware itself wanted to offer its fans has led to the departure of some veterans of the series over the years, including creative director Mike Laidlaw.
Thus, the developers of Dragon Age Dreadwolf hope that this new game stays with both the narrative and usual style of the saga, as well as with the expectations of living service what EA is looking for. And it is that some of the ideas for this game include a multiplayer mode in which several players will be able to control the different companions, or missions that would change not by the decisions of the user, but of the entire community.
