“Dragon Age: Inquisition” is set for an Oct. 7, 2014 release date per Electronic Arts. With the delay of “The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt”, that puts BioWare squarely in the driver’s seat for AAA RPGs during the hot holiday sales season.

Meanwhile, the new trailer from Electronic Arts runs nearly two minutes and gives a mix of gameplay and story to help whet player’s appetites. It also helps serve to showcase the large and varied environments that are planned for “Dragon Age: Inquisition”. The world of the latest in the series will be much bigger than either of the two previous games though it won’t be completely open world.

Returning characters pop up as well with Leiliana and Cullen, now an ex-Templar, both shown prominently in the trailer. While players won’t be able to make either of the two characters a part of your part, they both play prominent roles as the heads of the Inquisition’s shadow and military arms. They also figure into the new War Table mechanic that allows the inquisitor send allies away on missions.

You can also spot the use of mounts in the trailer. Players shouldn’t get their hopes up too high though because, despite the appearance of dragons, mounts will be restricted solely to ground-based animal species.

The final scene in the trailer is interesting as well. All of the major players in the Inquisition are gathered around a table in a scene reminiscent of DaVinci’s “The Last Supper” painting.

For those that don’t know, “Dragon Age: Inquisition” thrusts players into the role of the Inquisitor following a tear in the Veil, which leads to demons invading Thedas. Players will not only need to enter into combat but command the Inquisition to find the cause and put a stop to it.
