Details about Dragon Age 4 – or more accurately, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf – have been few and far between, but they’re thankfully fresh. blog post (Opens in a new tab) Provide insight into how the game’s skill trees are designed and classes are assigned.
Allowing you to access the player’s “imagination” is at the heart of how the skill system is designed, says systems designer Luke Barrett. Barrett says that “because we support so many options, we designed something that can be customized extensively, rather than a more linear progression system.”
An early version of the skill tree design shows a sort of snowflake, with purchasable skill nodes at each intersection point. The tree shows six different colour-coded skill sets, which apparently represent different types of class disciplines. It looks like you’ll be able to cross borders freely between different disciplines, and buy skill upgrades that effectively allow you to create multi-tiered builds.
It’s worth bearing in mind, of course, that we’re seeing very/very early versions of the design here, and every detail is subject to change before it’s implemented in the final game. The developers hint that this design has already gotten multiple revisions from what we’re seeing, but those points around customization and freedom seem to remain at the heart of the whole idea.
UX designer Bruno Borio explains, “After multiple rounds of iteration and validation, we’ve come to the final design for the skill tree (which we can’t wait to show you). It was very important to us that the role-playing imagination and customization options be visible at a glance. sight without confusing the player.”
It’s unclear how any of this fits into previous Dragon Age 4 leaks. One of those sent players speculate on the class system based on which in-game faction you choose to join.
We don’t know for sure when Dreadwolf will be released, but it could be one of the biggest New games of 2023.
