Netflix has announced a new animated series based on Dragon Age.
Dragon Age: Absolution will make its debut on the streaming service in December, and will consist of six episodes.
According to Netflix, the series will be set in Tevinter, an empire within the Dragon Age universe.
You can watch the trailer here:
It features an entirely new cast of characters “inspired by and authentic to Dragon Age lore”.
This includes “elves, mages, knights, Qunari, Red Templars, demons, and other special surprises”.
Netflix has also confirmed that Absolution was created in collaboration with BioWare.
Earlier this month, BioWare confirmed that the next title in the Dragon Age series would be called Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, and will revolve around the character Solas in some way.
It said: “Solas, the Dread Wolf. Some say he might be an ancient elven god, but some say not. Others say a betrayer of his people… or a saviour who now seeks to rescue them at the cost of your world.
“His motives are inscrutable and his methods sometimes questionable, earning him a reputation as something of a trickster deity – a player of dark and dangerous games.
“Whether you’re new to Dragon Age stories or you’ve experienced them all, using Solas’s namesake no doubt suggests a spectrum of endless possibilities on where things may go. But at the core of this, like every past game, is you.
“If you’re new to Dragon Age, you have no need to worry about not having met our antagonist just yet. He’ll properly introduce himself when the time is right, but we did hint at his return when we announced #TheDreadWolfRises back in 2018.
“We suspect you have questions and they’ll be answered in time. While the game won’t be releasing this year, we’re growing closer to that next adventure. Rest assured, Solas is placing his pieces on the board as we speak.
“That’s all we have for now, but we hope knowing the official title has sparked some intrigue, as we’ll be talking more about the game later this year.”
