At this point, we're already well past the original promise of a "late 2013" release for BioWare'sDragon Age: Inquisition, a game that that developers initially planned would heavily "draw fromSkyrim." Mark your calendars, though, because BioWare has revealed via a new trailer that the game is now due for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 on October 7, 2014.
We got our first look at Inquisition at the Penny Arcade Expo last fall in a hands-off demo that showed off a new combat system and more meaningful storyline consequences to player actions. The developers seem keen to avoid the narrower story focus that led to a relatively poor reception forDragon Age II and return to the more expansive world-building of the original game.
The new trailer doesn't focus explicitly on these elements, though, instead showing off some impressive, Frostbite 3-powered glowing magical effects amid appropriately overwrought storyline exposition. Internet sleuths are already parsing the trailer's imagery for clues about which characters will be returning this time around.
