Dragon Age: The Veilguard gets cinematic ahead of gameplay showcase

With all the games that have been shown off in the last few days, it’s easy enough to miss out on some — even high-profile ones like Dragon Age: The Veilguard. It played a big part in yesterday’s Xbox Showcase, but between Perfect Dark, Doom, and Fable, it’s understandable if you missed it (no matter how great its trailer was).

Thankfully, tomorrow morning we’ll get a chance to see even more of the game, when Bioware and Electronic Arts host an official gameplay reveal on Dragon Age’s YouTube channel. We’ll get more than 15 minutes of action, so be sure to tune in — and, in case you missed it, here’s the cinematic trailer again!

Electronic Arts Inc. and BioWare premiered a new cinematic trailer showcasing a brand new cast of companions who will join players in their journey through Dragon Age: The Veilguard, an all-new single-player fantasy RPG experience coming to PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in Fall 2024. Dragon Age: The Veilguard builds upon the pillars the iconic series is best known for, delivering a bold and heroic adventure guided by rich storytelling, fluid and strategic combat, companions and fellowship, and choices that matter. Tune into the official gameplay reveal of Dragon Age: The Veilguard featuring more than 15 minutes of gameplay from the opening moments of the experience on Tuesday, June 11 at 8:00 a.m. PT at the Dragon Age YouTube channel.

In this next chapter of the critically-acclaimed saga, players will step into Dragon Age’s newest fully-customizable hero, Rook, battling on the front lines alongside an extraordinary cast of heroes known as the Veilguard. Fellowship is central to the experience of Dragon Age: The Veilguard, with each companion entering the fray with their own storylines, motivations and skill trees. In this tale that will decide the fate of Thedas forever, Rook must rise up, rally a team and forge relationships to become the unexpected leader others believe in.

“Dragon Age: The Veilguard features some of the deepest companion storylines in Dragon Age history, navigating romance, tragic loss and complex choices that will affect relationships with players and the fate of The Veilguard,” said John Epler, Creative Director of Dragon Age: The Veilguard. “BioWare’s storytelling roots shine through every chapter of this adventure, and we are incredibly excited for Dragon Age fans as well as those new to the series to experience this crafted, character-driven narrative that is so intertwined with our studio’s DNA.”

Each companion in Dragon Age: The Veilguard brings their own expertise to the field of battle, summoning the grit to stand together and face impossible odds. Throughout their adventures, players can mix and match different team combinations of two of the game’s seven total companions at a time, to adapt to certain challenges and link powerful combinations that can turn the tide of any battle. The game’s cast of companions includes:

  • Bellara, a creative and romantic Veil Jumper obsessed with uncovering ancient secrets.

  • Davrin, a bold and charming Grey Warden who has made a name for himself as a monster hunter.

  • Emmrich, a necromancer of Nevarra’s Mourn Watch who comes complete with a skeletal assistant, Manfred.

  • Harding, the dwarven scout, returns to the fray as a companion with her big heart, a positive outlook, and a ready bow – as well as unexpected magical powers.

  • Lucanis, a poised & pragmatic assassin who descends from the bloodline of the House of Crows, a criminal organization renowned throughout Thedas.

  • Neve, a cynic fighting for a better future, both as a private detective and a member of Tevinter’s rebellious Shadow Dragons.

  • Taash, a dragon hunter allied with the Lords of Fortune who lives for adventure and doesn’t mind taking risks.

Fans can add Dragon Age: The Veilguard to their wishlists on PlayStation, Xbox and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
