Bioware shock

Last week I told you guys about the Nightmare teaser from Bioware, the one which made it seem like Bioware would be revealing something completely new during Gamescom. Well now we’ve got a second teaser and it’s just as ambiguous, but at least we get a date.

Here is the You Have Been Chosen Spark Teaser:

For the non-video viewing, I would normally explain what happened but I’m not sure that I can. A young man is sitting in a dingy cafe in Asia somewhere, drawing a weird symbol on a napkin. His phone keeps ringing with an unknown number. His eyes glow a bit, and then his phone seems to experience an electrical storm and blows him away from the table. The camera pans out while this happens and we see a hooded figure looking in through the cafe’s window.

The YouTube description merely says:

Do you know they are watching?

Your power is rising

Cologne, Germany

You’ve Been Chosen

08.13.14

13th of August? Why, that’s the first real day of Gamescom, and the day that EA has its press conference. Coincidence? We think not.  What could EA have up their sleeve to show us? I’m still speculating that it’s related to the Shadow Realms trademark that EA filed earlier this year.

People are already so desperate for news about the game formerly known as Mass Effect 4, as well as any bits we can glean about Dragon Age: Inquisition – another new IP from Bioware might just make us overly excited. What new game would you like to see them do? Did you pick up on anything in the trailer that maybe gives us more of a clue?

Gamescom is only a little over a week away. I’m actually not sure that I can contain my excitement – it’s going to blow me away if I get to see Bioware’s big announcement in person. Let’s just hope that this isn’t a sign that they’re jumping on the MOBA bandwagon. Please, just hope and pray.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

  • Umar

    A black man with a samsung getting a call from California from an Unknown number while eating Chinese and drawing a circle of fire from what I assume is a premonition and then he suddenly turns into Raiden and can control the elements. Finally the camera zooms out and we see a hooded rapist with a missing persons poster on the pole to the right…..

            You’ll feel that way once you’re done with RDR

          • Rince/Trev4quoteofweek

    • FoxOneZA

      It’s hammer time yo!

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Well you might be. Let’s investigate this, shall we? ….. Are people trying to catch you the whole time?….. Are you squeezed into a small ball on a daily basis by Asians? …….. Are you ever forced to fight other pokemon? …….. Do you have special powers at all? ……. And finally, are you now starring, or have you ever been part of an animated TV series?

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Sure teasing a spark could be a new game, or it could just be EA mocking Bioware with what they’ve lost creatively.

    • Viking Of Science

      *burn

    • Umar

      Would much prefer a new Bethesda game….Namely one that ends in ‘out’ and is the fourth iteration

      • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

        You deserve MOAR upvotes for that.
        I’m currently re-immersing myself into one of their other gems

        • Umar

          Ahh, your favorite one?

          • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

            While I adored FO, Skyrim just gets me, you know? Maybe because of my wishes to shout and drink mead and nomnoms cheese wheels all day

          • Umar

            LOL Every month or so your avatar changes back to Skyrim lol I can see it gets you :)

          • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

            Actually, I have not played Skyrim in quite some time, until recently when I picked up the Legendary edition…

          • Dutch Matrix

            The Legendary edition just sucked me right back into Skyrim. It is also the game that made me decide to go with PC for the Next Gen. The graphics are amazing. And the loading screens are gone so quick I cannot even read them!

          • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

            Aye, I have new rules for this, my third playthrough (starting as mage this time):
            – 6 hours of sleep per 24 hour period
            – Breakfast, lunch, dinner consisting of fruit, veg, meat and mead/wine
            – NO fast travel

          • Dutch Matrix

            Divorce papers by the end of the weekend? :)

          • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

            Nee wat, BALANS BROER BALANS!

          • Dutch Matrix

            Ek lees eers Ballas! Maar vergewe my. Ek is vreeslik sensitief vir alkohol. Het nou net ‘n Witblits artikel gelees…

          • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

            Haha ballas

        • Lord Chaos

          Damn the single upvote limit.

  • Mossel

    There’s a 13th month?

    • Dutch Matrix

      Nee, maar daar is ‘n agtste maand en ‘n dertiende dag…

      • Mossel

        …ek weet. Ek hou net nie van die konvensie nie. dag, maand, jaar. Nie maand, dag, jaar nie.

        • Dutch Matrix

          Dis EA en Amerikaners. Wat verwag jy?

  • Rags

    EA wants to have its own MOBA. And who better to put the risk on than Bioware? :>

  • Mark Treloar

    I’m reminded of Watch dogs.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Sounds like a love child from Infamous, Watch dogs, Assassin’s Creed and Sleeping Dogs…. Half life 3 confirmed!!!
