Dungeon Siege 3 teaser is bereft of dungeons

Perhaps the most glaring thing about the new Dungeon Siege 3 teaser, apart from its complete lack of gameplay footage, is its complete lack of dungeons. It's a nice CG introduction to the backstory and all, but ... what are we supposed to besiege? The branching narrative?...
