Does Dragon Age 4 have multiplayer features and does it even need them?

Following the success of Respawn Entertainment's Jedi: Fallen Order, EA and BioWare have had to make a tough decision regarding the future of the next Dragon Age title.

Below, we have everything you need to know about how Dragon Age 4 is going to shape the series going forward.

No More Multiplayer

This will come as welcome news to some fans, and tragic news to others, but EA and BioWare are abandoning all planned Multiplayer and GaaS features from their upcoming RPG.

In an effort to pivot the title into an entirely single-player experience, following the success of Cal Kestis' outing, major changes are going on behind the scenes at BioWare.
