As is true of the Elder Scrolls series, the regions featured in each instalment of BioWare’s Dragon Age series so far are an important part of their events. People have been speculating that upcoming Dragon Age 4 would be set in the Tevinter Imperium, following the way Dragon Age Inquisition’s final DLC pack Trespasser wrapped up – with the Inquisitor’s knife seeming to single out the region on a map. This setting isn’t actually confirmed, but fans will be able to enjoy some of the land’s stories regardless. A collection of short stories based on Dragon Age 4’s potential setting is coming.
Patrick Weekes, who is currently the lead Dragon Age writer and author of some companion novels to the series, has posted a tweet (via PCGamer) looking to clarify that the upcoming collection of short stories isn’t solely by him. Instead, he’s one of four editors of the book, which is called Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights, and he says it’s “an anthology of short stories set in the Dragon Age universe.”
Details on the Amazon pre-order page for the book are sparse, but you can get a good look at the front cover, and judging by what we know from the series about the Tevinter Imperium, we can guess that the stories might feature some tales about mages and magic-users. Unlike other many other places in Dragon Age’s continent Thedas, the use of magic in Tevinter is not hugely restricted.
According to the Amazon page, the book will be available in paperback and is due for release March 10, 2020. Its other editors are Chris Bain, Matthew Goldman, and Christopher Morgan.
Hey, all: this isn’t accurate. It is NOT a novel by me.
We cannot wait for you to see them! https://t.co/xLijSP7ngS

Although you won’t have to wait too long for the book, it looks like Dragon Age 4 could still be a way off, so the collection could be great way to get your fill of Dragon Age lore in the meantime.
