Dragon Age Dreadwolf Retitled The Veilguard Gameplay BioWare

Fans Say Dragon Age: The Veilguard Looks Like a Cartoony Shrek Movie and Aren’t Happy

Ahead of the official gameplay reveal this evening, BioWare has released a short snippet from Dragon Age: The Veilguard to please fans. Why do the fans need pleasing you may ask yourself? Well, after the official reveal trailer this weekend, many of them have criticized the game’s visuals and art style saying it looks like a “Shrek movie”.

If you watched the trailer (linked below) you can’t deny the resemblance. However, that doesn’t mean this CG-like approach is a bad thing. If anything, Dragon Age: The Veilguard looks rather stylish so far. Sure it lacks the realism from DA: Inquisition and the ruggedness from the first two games but it works. In my opinion anyway.

Some hardcore fans, on the other hand, don’t agree with me. Since the reveal trailer was released, social media and the YouTube video have been bombarded with nasty comments related to the visuals. One comment says “How did we go from dark fantasy to Saturday morning cartoons?”.

Another comment has compared Dragon Age: The Veilguard to Fortnite saying the cartoony visuals and character design look similar to the battle royale game. Of course, there’s also the Shrek movie reference where a user claims the game gives off “Shrek vibes”.

At the moment, there are more negative comments surrounding Dragon Age: The Veilguard than positive. From the trailer’s song choice to the “upbeat and Marvel squad-like” theme, fans are ripping into the game.

Some fans have even compared the game’s trailer to a hero shooter saying the video plays out like the original Overwatch reveal trailer. I won’t lie, I get that a bit too. One comment says BioWare changed the name to “Veilguard” to suit the new children’s game art style because “Dreadwolf” was too badass and doesn’t suit it.

One major concern around the game from most fans is whether or not Dragon Age: The Veilguard is a multiplayer live service game. Many of them believe that after watching the trailer, that is the case.

The short gameplay snippet, while intended to tease fans, hasn’t helped much either. The video is but a few seconds long (24 to be exact) and shows off an environment and a few seconds of walking. There’s no sign of what gameplay style to expect in Dragon Age: The Veilguard.

BioWare is expected to showcase 11 minutes of Dragon Age: The Veilguard this afternoon. At 5 PM CAT, the gameplay reveal trailer will go live and hopefully, squash all the worries fans have. Dragon Age: The Veilguard is expected to launch later this year on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
