Dragon Age: The Veilguard

Dragon Age: The Veilguard Will Be Completely Offline

In a recent discord Q&A for Dragon Age: The Veilguard, BioWare confirmed that the recently revealed title will be completely playable offline. Players will also not need an EA account to play. Additionally, according to game director Corinne Busche in an IGN report, the game will also not have any microtransaction or battle passes.” You don’t have to connect online. Our focus is on making this the most complete single-player game we possibly can.” Said Busche. “It is very important to us that [the system] is built into the client. You can play this game entirely offline. No connection, you don’t have to link to your EA accounts. That’s been a really big request”. Dragon Age: The Veilguard will launch this fall for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.

The game’s details:

From the storytellers at BioWare comes Dragon Age: The Veilguard, an all new single-player fantasy RPG experience. This bold, heroic adventure is built to deliver on what the series is best known for: rich storytelling, fantasy worldbuilding, companions & fellowship, and a world where you matter. In Dragon Age: The Veilguard, you’ll embark on a quest to face powerful Elven gods and stop the destruction they’re unleashing on the world. You are known as Rook, battling on the front lines alongside a compelling cast of companions with individual storylines and motivations. In true Dragon Age fashion, companions are central to the experience and as Rook, you must rise up, rally your crew and forge relationships to become the unexpected leader others believe in.


Solas, the Dread Wolf and Elven Trickster god of legend, wants to tear down the Veil that separates Thedas from the world of demons, restoring his people’s immortality and glory—even at the cost of countless lives. But his ritual goes awry, and his worst fears are realized, as two of his most ancient and powerful adversaries are released. They seek only to finish what they started millennia ago – the complete and utter domination of our world. Rook’s journey to stop these two powerful deities will span across all of Thedas to bustling cities, lush tropics, boreal forests, fettered swamps and the deepest depths, but be wary of the evil forces along the way like the Dark Spawn, Venatori Cultists and Demons of the Fade.
