Will Dragon Age 4 Have A New Protagonist?

From The Warden in “Dragon Age: Origins” and Hawke in “Dragon Age 2” to The Inquisitor in “Dragon Age: Inquisition,” each of the previous “Dragon Age” titles featured a different main character, and “Dragon Age 4” will be no exception. Though fans of The Inquisitor will likely be disappointed to learn that they won’t be able to step back into their shoes, the new protagonist promises to bring an entirely new angle to the series.

As revealed in the “Dragon Age 4” trailer which dropped at the 2020 Game Awards, a new mystery lead is slated for the title. As explained by the trailer’s narrator, Varric, “It’s time for a new hero.” This fresh protagonist will have “no magic hand, no ancient prophecy,” and because of this, the unlikely hero will be “the kind of person they’ll never see coming.”

The jury’s still out on whether or not this was the right move for “Dragon Age 4.” Even in these early days of the upcoming title’s slow rollout, outlets like Eurogamer, Game Rant, and Screen Rant have all expressed surprise and concern about the choice. Though shifting away from The Inquisitor as the protagonist seems abrupt considering the twists at the end of “Dragon Age: Inquisition – Trespasser,” it’s hard to say how their story may continue as a potential NPC in “Dragon Age 4.” Further, how will an everyday protagonist without magic skills become a force to be reckoned with? Only BioWare knows the answer.
