BioWare released a strange video this week that takes the whole "teaser" thing to a new level. This particular teaser is titled "Nightmare," and consists of less than 40 seconds in live-action footage, featuring some heavy supernatural themes and bearing the ominous tagline "You've Been Chosen."
In Nightmare, a young man is suffering through a rather horrific dream, one in which he's being chased by what appears to be a similarly-dressed figure. But when we look under the individual's hood, the face is absent, replaced by a blinding light. At one point, we are treated to the image of a man in a suit, sitting in a chair and lacking a head. A ring of fire burns on asphalt, and at the very end, we're told, "You've been chosen."
The only description provided is fairly cryptic, reading:
The time is near
They are watching
Your power is rising
You’ve Been Chosen
So what's the deal? Is this a teaser for some kind of urban fantasy game? The big reveal will drop at gamescom next month in Cologne, Germany. At least that part's pretty clear.
