Geoff Keighley is likely better known as the talking head behind The Game Awards, an annual event that celebrates some of the best and most beloved titles that managed to surpass expectations and become a new beacon of what is possible within the creative medium that has frankly taken unsurpassed steps in the past decade alone.

This coming Thursday on December 10, and interestingly attempting to fight Cyberpunk 2077 for your eyeballs and meager attention span, Geoff Keighley will be sitting aside such notables as Gal Gadot and Brie Larson to bring some quality entertainment as we all argue incessantly about what the game of the year should actually be.

Alongside that arguing is going to be some additional content, however.

A newly announcing sneak peek at what fans can expect from the upcoming Dragon Age that has been notably silent as of late; an aspect that hasn’t gone unnoticed by critics of the most recent iteration that some noted ‘felt heartless and empty’ and others drew comparisons to being forced to do ‘busy work’ as players meandered across wide regions with very little to do.

This has made the upcoming Bioware title, the next iteration of Dragon Age, a hotly debated topic: some note that Bioware simply isn’t as capable as they used to be, drawing arguments that mirror the Ship of Theseus conundrum of identity and self-preservation.

It’s never wise to count chickens before they hatch, however, and if anyone can mount a monumental comeback it’s the studio behind the legendary Knights of the Old Republic, so eyes are being peeled to see what Bioware is going to offering fans for the upcoming title.

That being said, it’s up in the air precisely what circumstances as a ‘Special Look’; we could just see a developer talking about how genre-defining the next iteration is, some sweeping landscapes, and a couple of pieces of dialogue out of context.

What fans are hoping is that we’ll get to see an in-depth look into the upcoming title that can put the volume of studio doubters a bit lower than what it’s been in the past for adequate reasons, a bit of meat behind the story, and player agency while revealing a bit of action that users can expect to dive into whenever the title is ready to breach.

Some have pointed to early 2022 as being the absolute earliest the title can be expected.

At any rate, we won’t need to wait too long to find out precisely what Bioware has up their sleeve, or at least to figure what they’re ready to reveal.
