Sprinting and jumping through an open environment might not be what comes to mind when gamers think of Bioware’s Dragon Age franchise, but that could soon change as Dragon Age: Inquisition will introduce several new mechanics which are more at home in action titles than role-playing games. While answering fan questions, Dragon Age Executive Producer Mark Darrah confirmed on March 31 that the upcoming third installment of the popular fantasy series will give players the ability to jump and sprint.

This will be the first Dragon Age game to feature advanced movement mechanics and likely is being added due to the developer’s strive to create a larger world space for fans to adventure in. After all, bigger maps will require that players have new ways to maneuver through them.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to release this fall on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3. The game is being built on the Frostbite 3 engine which will allow it to launch across console generations while still being able to utilize the advanced visuals of Xbox One and PS4 hardware. Inquisition will let fans travel to the country of Orlais, which is ravaged by civil war, for the first time in any Dragon Age title.
