Bethesda dropped a teaser image over Twitter this morning which claimed some sort of a reveal would be coming within the hour. An hour later and no big reveal has occurred, but the plot has certainly thickened. Their initial teaser was an image composed of parts of three different images. Since, these three images have been fully revealed on GameSpot. What's with these industrial, robotic images?
Keep in mind, this is a teaser from Bethesda Softworks, the publisher, and not Bethesda Game Studio which is the developer of Skyrim and other delightful games. As such this teaser could be in reference to any number of Bethesda's publishing partnerships -- or even a new one. Obsidian, id, inXile, Arkane, Rebellion, Splash Damage or Human Head -- the list goes on.
For now, we have these three strange images to pour over. The red eye is certainly referential to 2001: A Space Odyssey, though I doubt we're looking at a HAL 9000 video game. The third teaser shows some humanoid shaped shadows in the background, and the second seems to be either bullets or gears or... I have no idea. Take a look and see if you have any better ideas. If I had to lob a guess... it looks Unreal quality. Maybe something for PC?
What is #1960?
