BioWare Teaser Suggests New IP Reveal at Gamescom
BioWare may officially reveal its next project at Gamscom next month.
That, at least, would seem to be the indication of a recent teaser trailer released by the studio. The trailer, which has been posted to a website entitled “You’ve Been Chosen,” is only 40 seconds in length and begins in a trashed room with a man sleeping on a bed. It then switches over to a nameless individual running through a dark alley. At one point, while he’s running, the screen flashes to a headless man sitting in a chair with smoke pouring out of his neck.
After that, he arrives at a car which he tries to open, only to find the door locked and a doppelganger of himself sitting in the front seat. We then get quick flashes of ring of fire burning on the pavement followed by a hooded individual with a glowing white face, after which the runner wakes up and realizes it was all a dream. It ends with the words “What really happens when we sleep?” appearing on the screen.
The video’s description also says the following:
They are watching
Your power is rising
You’ve been chosen”
While BioWare hasn’t confirmed anything, many are taking the reference to Cologne to mean this project’s full-fledged reveal will be coming at next month’s Gamescom event. Others, digging into files attached to press emails, meanwhile, have noted that several include the name “Shadow Realms.” This would match several seemingly MMO-themed domains claimed by EA earlier this year.
