Smoke monster face? It even had the same sound effects with it.

LOST game you've always wanted is here, Patrick.

Yes please

Oh my stars and garters, this could be wonderful. Or a massive letdown. Never know with Bioware.

Posted by CornBREDX

Ya they emailed me about this, too. I think it looks dumb, but that's just my opinion on realistically nothing as that's all this shows game(anything) wise.

We'll see what the game actually is eventually and maybe I'll change my mind then.

This has me interested at least.

The name Bioware might be more exciting if I knew what it even meant anymore, but something other than a sequel is always good news.


Also, live action is always better with Sam Lake making constipated faces.

It's going to be a F2P MMO or MOBA. I guarantee it.

So is this the new IP that Edmonton has been working on?

Posted by Kiwi

There is an ilovebees-esque viral marketing thing unfolding for this as well, which you can follow along with or contribute to here: http://www.reddit.com/r/SeekingHenna/

Not much figured out yet, but you can see the seeds of it all here: http://dulfy.net/2014/07/25/help-wanted-with-mysterious-message-seeking-henna/

The smoking man-face shot was Twin-Peaksian. I'm quite excited by this if it is that Edmonton game they spoke of as a non-fantasy, non-space setting would be cool for a Bioware game.

Finally, the Shirley Manson RPG I've been waiting for!?

Posted by Rasgueado

I ... ok I'm definitely sure there is probably more to this, but that strikes a really similar chord to the opening of The Secret World.

Are we 100% sure that this isn't a road safety commercial?

Chameleon Twist III!?

@rasgueado: The secret world looked cooler to me personally. Wish we could a single player game of that style.

Twice bitten thrice shy, Bioware.

Horror RPG?

At least I hope, need some more Bioware RPG in my life.

Posted by Oldirtybearon

Reasons to be excited:

  1. It's a new IP from Bioware.
  2. This is likely what Casey Hudson's Edmonton team has been working on since wrapping ME3.
  3. It is unlikely this is a Bioware Austin game, as that's an MMO developer and MMOs are crappy.
  4. EA has likely learned its lesson from trying to brand a fucking RTS as a Bioware game.
  5. It looks modern day, with a heavy emphasis on the supernatural.

Reasons to be skeptical:

  1. Jury is still out on if Bioware is back after their recent slump.
  2. This is likely what Casey Hudson's Edmonton team has been working on since wrapping ME3.

I want to be excited, but I need to see more of this and play DA3 before deciding if it's worth getting excited for another Bioware game. For the record I really, really hope this turns out well. Nobody makes RPGs like Bioware, and they are consistently my very favourites in the genre. From KOTOR to Jade Empire to Dragon Age to Mass Effect, I absolutely love the games these guys make and I don't know if my heart can handle another rush job.

Please be good and interesting. I don't want bioware to become techland.

Posted by Grondoth

Ah, I've been chosen to become part of a morally grey powerful organization that is trying to end a universal threat. Now what are the four places I gotta go?

Posted by andrew2696

BioWare FMV game, calling it.

Though honestly I still really like BioWare games apart from Dragon Age II. I mean I really liked Mass Effect 3. I mean it had problems but there were some great moments in there like the whole Krogan stuff and a lot of the crew stuff. And Citadel might be my favourite DLC ever. I know it was fan service but it was also balls out crazy.

Posted by 93The_Ace

Well, that's a good trailer. But, who knows if this'll be any good

Posted by Crunchman

Real life inspiration from the nightmare that was The Old Republic.

Posted by doctor_kaz

Ten years ago I would have found this interesting. But now Bioware is a pale shadow of what it used to be. There's no reason to get excited about anything that they do anymore.

Posted by Mr_Creeper

I'm not even sure what to make of this...

Posted by Rejizzle

?

Posted by FeverChill

I thought it looked like a car commercial, I was expecting a "...it's not a dream, it's the new Lexus" or something like that.

Posted by roughneck117

@oldirtybearon: According to Aaryn Flyn, the game is not being made by Bioware Canada, so neither Montreal or Edmonton. So its not Casey Hudsons new IP. Its gotta be Austin, unless theres a secret studio in the US or elsewhere that Bioware opened.

Protagonist another young white hollywood male model... hopefully it's customisable.

God Dammit.

Posted by DieHappyGames

Not going to break my rule, just because it's bioware: cinematic trailer for a game is the equivalent of an empty statement.

Yeah, alright, you've hooked me, Bioware. That's the kind of creepy magical shit I like.

Posted by Cybexx

A modern day game from Bioware could be interesting. Is it Persona without the anime? Is it the first Bioware game without combat? Is it open-world?

Put it out on fucking Steam again please EA. :(

Put it out on fucking Steam again please EA. :(

Official response from EA: No

Posted by Viking_Funeral

So... dialogue wheel, multiple areas to visit in the middle of the game, and initiation into a special order of warriors?

Could be cool. Let's see some gameplay.

Posted by Maitimo

EA wouldn't greenlight a horror game, so probably Urban Fantasy. Plenty of potential there to squander.

Posted by militantfreudian

I can't believe I missed this; I checked the website over a dozen times in the past couple of days. Well, this looks interesting to say the least.

Posted by shaftwaxer

I want to love it BioWare. Really. I do. Give me a reason to. I want to blindly love all the things you put out again. Please give me that chance.

Posted by Metric_Outlaw

This definitely looks like a MOBA.

Posted by NoodleUnit

Right, "Bioware".

Same and same.

Posted by Roger778

@dr_mantas:

I have a feeling this could definitely be a horror game. Maybe even an RPG, too.
