'​Dragon Age 4' Multiplayer Noted In BioWare Job Listing

It seems that the next Dragon Age title, currently unnamed, which made its first appearance at The Game Awards 2018, will have some form of multiplayer content.

This news comes from GearNuke, who - similar to when they found Rockstar Games' next-generation job listings - reported that BioWare is currently searching for a franchise technical director, who'll work on online gameplay.

And so they are. Amidst a wealth "vision" and "role model" talk, BioWare states its intentions to hire someone with "experience developing multiplayer games".

I mean, it makes sense. BioWare's Mass Effect 3 and Andromeda, even Dragon Age: Inquisition, had multiplayer features. Though online play in Dragon Age 4, or whatever name it may have on launch, will presumably be more advanced.

Could we see a full co-op campaign? Or a Dragon Age take on head-to-head modes? Perhaps an improved PvE, what with everything BioWare learned while developing upcoming online-only title, Anthem, due for a 22 February release.

Though, fans will no doubt rather BioWare kept to its Dragon Age routes; it is, and should stay as, a single-player-focused experience. We all love a good game with mates, but nothing beats a brilliant single-player campaign. And that should be DA4's top priority, shouldn't it?

Either way, it's going to be a while before you find out proper multiplayer details. The game was only announced around a month ago, and BioWare devs have already put an expected timescale of three years on it.

What we do know is that its story will base around the return of a familiar character. The DA4 Game Awards trailer depicted the hashtag #TheDreadWolfRises, after all.

I don't want to give to much away without a spoiler warning, but those who played Inquisition will know of Solas and The Dread Wolf. If you want to find out more, head here and have a read.

What do you think about this news? Are you looking forward to the next Dragon Age? What multiple features would you like? Make sure you let us know.
