Dragon Age companions recreated in The Sims
The Sims 4 has some of the best character designers in the industry, and one player is using it to recreate party members from Dragon Age games.
For most of the past decade, there has been significant overlap between The Sims 4 and dragon age players, and one of them managed to recreate the companions from BioWare’s fantasy saga in The Sims 4. Although the character creator in Dragon Age: Origins left a lot to be desired, even back then, both franchises have since earned a reputation for having a powerful set of tools to create one’s in-game avatar, with Dragon Age: Inquisition Easily have the best character designer in any BioWare title.
Yet, as much fun as it may be to play the hero of Ferelden, the champion of Kirkwall or the herald of Andraste, one of the most famous and appealing aspects of the dragon age saga comes from its colorful cast of characters – the player’s party members, in particular. From the haughty Morrigan, Witch of the Savage Lands, to the temperamental Magister of Tevinter, Dorian Pavus, these memorable companions have left a strong impression on fans of the dragon age Games.
A player of The Sims 4 named Pocketpeanuts managed to recreate the companions of Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Inquisitionby sharing the completed list of participants with the sims community on Reddit. Recreations have also found traction on Twitter, where former dragon age producer and director Mark Darrah retweeted them.
Although it is difficult to create a Qunari under the constraints of The Sims 4, the resemblance between the recreated versions of Morrigan and Alistair is by far the strangest. We also can’t help but admire the effort to recreate a Mabari War Hound using the pet design tools in The Sims 4as the results almost match the original.
With The Sims 5 in the first tests, and Dragon Age: Dreadwolf Apparently aiming for a late 2023 release, both franchises are nearing their next chapter. Based on what Electronic Arts was willing to disclose about the direction of the sims suite, the emphasis on personalization in The Sims 5 could allow gamers like Pocketpeanuts to recreate their favorite characters from other games with even greater depth and precision. By the time The Sims 5 fate, players will likely be introduced to the cast of characters in Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. Although not much is known of the companions of the fourth dragon age for now, gamers should expect the marketing of the BioWare title to start very soon.
The Sims 4 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
