The acclaimed Dragon Age series, including Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II, and Dragon Age: Inquisition, is currently on sale on Steam with a whopping 90% discount. With this incredible deal, there’s no better moment to take a look back at the games that have captivated millions of players worldwide and set the stage for the highly anticipated next installment, The Veilguard.

Dragon Age Origins: The Beginning of an Epic Saga

Dragon Age: Origins launched in 2009, marking the beginning of BioWare’s beloved fantasy RPG series. Set in the war-torn land of Ferelden, the game introduces players to the Blight, a cataclysmic event led by the darkspawn and their Archdemon. Players take on the role of a Grey Warden, one of the last members of an ancient order tasked with defending the world from this ominous threat. The game is celebrated for its deep narrative, complex moral choices, and rich character development. Each choice influences the game’s outcome, making every playthrough unique. The tactical combat system, combined with a party of diverse companions, offers a challenging and engaging experience.

Dragon Age: Origins sets the foundation for the series’ lore, exploring themes of power, betrayal, and sacrifice. The game’s world-building is meticulous, drawing players into a universe where magic and political intrigue intertwine. The success of Origins paved the way for the future of the franchise, establishing a loyal fanbase eager for more adventures in Thedas.

Dragon Age II: A Tale of Ascent and Conflict

Dragon Age II follows the story of Hawke, a refugee who rises to become the Champion of Kirkwall. Released in 2011, the game takes a more personal approach, focusing on Hawke’s journey over a decade, dealing with themes of survival, family, and power. Unlike its predecessor, Dragon Age II confines most of its story to the city of Kirkwall and its surroundings, allowing for a more detailed exploration of the city’s politics and its people’s lives. The game’s narrative is presented through the lens of Varric, a charming dwarf storyteller, adding a unique flair to the storytelling.

Despite mixed reactions to its more streamlined gameplay and limited locations, Dragon Age II is praised for its strong character interactions and emotional depth. The game delves into the complexities of mage and Templar tensions, setting the stage for future conflicts in the series. Hawke’s tale is one of personal growth and tragedy, making it a compelling chapter in the Dragon Age saga.

Dragon Age: Inquisition: A Battle Against Chaos

Dragon Age: Inquisition, released in 2014, is the third major installment in the series, expanding the scope and scale of the franchise. Players assume the role of the Inquisitor, tasked with closing the Breach, a tear in the Veil that separates the physical world from the Fade, the realm of spirits and demons. The game introduces a massive open world, filled with diverse environments, from lush forests to arid deserts, each brimming with quests and secrets to uncover.

Inquisition is lauded for its stunning visuals, intricate world-building, and complex character relationships. The game’s narrative weaves together threads from previous installments, featuring returning characters and unresolved plotlines. Players’ choices have far-reaching consequences, affecting the fate of nations and the balance of power in Thedas. The combat system combines tactical planning with real-time action, offering flexibility in how players approach battles.

The Veilguard: The Future of Thedas

As fans eagerly await the next chapter in the Dragon Age series, The Veilguard promises to build upon the rich legacy of its predecessors. Though details remain scarce, early teasers suggest a focus on the mysterious and magical elements of Thedas, particularly the Veil and its impact on the world. The Veilguard is expected to continue the tradition of deep storytelling, complex characters, and moral ambiguity that has defined the series.

The anticipation for The Veilguard is a testament to the enduring appeal of the Dragon Age franchise. Each game has added new layers to the world of Thedas, creating a vibrant and dynamic setting that captivates players. As the series moves forward, The Veilguard holds the promise of new adventures, challenges, and discoveries, keeping the spirit of Dragon Age alive for both new and returning fans.
