Dragon Age fans know the Gray Wardens well. The warrior group are the stars of Dragon Age: Origins, battling the awful dark spawn throughout Theda’s fantasy world. It is the gray guards who lead the charge against every blight, ensuring the survival of the world. In Origins, the player is initiated into the Gray Wardens via a ritual called Joining, which involves imbibing darkspawn blood. My wife loved Alistair, a reluctantly heroic Gray Warden and … well … you know. After all, it’s a BioWare game.
On Dragon Age 4! Or whatever the game ends up being called. BioWare has released a new image for the game, and in it teased the look of the Gray Wardens. Gray Wardens confirmed! And robes!
The photo was tweeted by executive producer Christian Dailey.
@SerGoldman I got you! Is this the right amount of tip and gray?
Good Friday everyone. I hope everyone stays safe and well. 🙂 ?????? pic.twitter.com/LbAmD1SKGR

What does that tell us about the game? Little! As Tom reported in January, BioWare’s fourth major Dragon Age game will be set mainly in Tevinter, an as yet unvisited country within the franchise world of Thedas. It will be interesting to see how the Gray Wardens affect things.
In Dragon Age Inquisition, you could either make the Gray Wardens allies or send them packing. See how it goes down in the video below:
Perhaps Dragon Age 4 will see the order restored to its former glory and play a key role in the events of the game.
A trailer released at the Game Awards last year was told by Dragon Age 2 sidekick Varric, while concept art for the game, released at Gamescom 2020, appears to show other recurring faces like Isabella and Tevinter native Dorian. And of course, the villain Solas is still knocking around.
BioWare has never set a release date for Dragon Age 4, though EA has previously indicated that it will not arrive until after April 2022.
