I’ve heard it said before that a videogame trailer comprised entirely of long zooms and pans of nothing but environments and terrain means that the developer behind the game doesn’t really have all that much new to share with the world, but is still desperate to remind everyone their that game exists.

The latest trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition at first seems to have materialised for the same reasons, and under the same circumstances, if it weren’t for a few scenes that include a bit of activity from the world’s denizens… and the fact that EA and BioWare have confirmed the game’s release for late 2014.

Also: It looks incredible!

In new blog post on the official BioWare blog, game producer Cameron Lee lets us know what we’re looking at in the new video, all of which is rendered in the latest Frostbite engine “which supports massive areas, destruction, and the most advanced next-gen technology we’ve ever seen,” allowing the team to create a game with “its own realistic ecosystem with predators, prey, factions, and opportunities to expand your Inquisition.”

“The world’s population is based on an emergent system that adjusts what you’ll encounter based on how your actions tip the balance in the area,” Lee continued. “You’ll see towns attacked by bandits, deer fleeing from wolves, giant’s feeding on bears, and countless other scenarios.”

Not only are the background systems complex and interesting, but the resultant visuals are spectacular allowing for “weather that creates naturally-formed puddles, spider webs that blow in the wind, and huge amounts of various materials that look more realistic than anything we’ve ever created in a BioWare game!”

Take a look below and let us know what you think of Dragon Age: Inquisition so far, now confirmed for a ‘Fall’ release in 2014 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC:
