Check Out BioWare's Third Eerie Trailer for Its New Project -- What Is It Teasing?

Plus, BioWare will hold a special "fan event" during Gamescom on August 13; will be live-streamed.

BioWare today released a third teaser trailer for its its upcoming unannounced project and published details about a special "fan event" to be held next week at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

The teaser, titled "Impact," shows a young woman who appears distraught saying the phrase "It's not my fault" over and over. As the camera pans out, we see that she is standing in front of a house that has been sucked into the ground by some unknown force.

The video ends with a line of text that asks, "Can you control your power?" It also includes the tagline, "You've Been Chosen," which BioWare used for the past two trailers. That is also the name of a teaser website that you can access at www.youve-been-chosen.com.

You can watch the first two BioWare teasers here.

We may not have much longer to wait to find out what BioWare's mystery project is. The developer also today announced that it will hold a special "fan event" during Gamescom next week. The event takes place at the COlogne Marriott Hotel on August 13 from 3-7 PM CEST.

If you can't attend in person, BioWare will stream the event live on Twitch.

BioWare's mystery game is not being made by any BioWare developer in Canada, and is not the new IP that the studio talked about at E3 this year. What do you think it is? Let us know in the comments.

She forgot her phone on the way to work and when she turned around to get it, her gigantic ears caused a small tornado that leveled the house.

could be about a game where you play as a person with superpowers in the modern day similar to the "Heroes" tv series

I don't care what all the haters say, i think Live action trailers are "THE BEST" way to showcase a video game. 


It's what every true gamer thinks.......am i right? Yes, yes i am. [full stop]

i've not seen any of the trailers for this new project till now. and watching that.. seems painfully obvious. dark gritty story driven character based game about people comming to grips with supernatural powers, perhaps that chick could make black holes or whatever. looks interesting i guess, but nothing new, think heroes, chronicle, afflicted.

I wish Bioware would go back their roots and make the games that they were really good at, and not tease us with shit like this. I really want Jade Empire 2 :(

That girl reminds me somewhat of Anna Torv from Fringe, so that's a good thing. I don't know what to expect, though, and it's not like teasers are supposed to help in that respect. 

The one kind of horror themed game I would like most is something that's similar to Clive Barker's Undying (hence, my user pic of a Howler).

I would love a game to allow you to go through the process of learning your powers and the potential negative effects of that learning process. Either way, I'm definitely intrigued.

It's like I'm watching a thriller movie; how.........boring.

from what I've seen in the three trailers, I'm getting some sort of "Heroes" vibe. Here's hoping Masi Oka will be in the next one.

Waiting for all of the stupid "color" jokes, whining about Bioware and (insert game here), and some kind of "witty", and I put that in quotations because they're more stupid than witty, comments about Bioware's stance of the LGBT community.


Come on guys, that's just about all you're capable of talking about these days when it comes to Bioware, might as well get to it.

Would not be surprised if this is a MOBA, since every dev and their pets are making them now it seems.

Yeah, it's a video game.  Just figure out which Movie/TV Show/Comic/Whatever they're copying.  Looks like X-Men or Heroes.

Kinda reminds me of i am number 4 or jumper its these kids that have powers and theres another watching them develop their powers and is most likely going to be running away from that black smoke guy or something around the lines of that probably a open world mmo maybe or its like mass effect where u get others in ur crew

Looks like a superhero/powers game. I wouldn't be surprised if it's an MMO, I'm getting that vibe from it for some reason (hoping I'm wrong though).

This is getting annoying now. I consider Bioware's emails spam but I can't unsubscribe because any future Mass Effect information will likely be sent via the same spammy newsletter.

As an oldschool Bioware fan I'm hoping the game turns out sweet. I'm kind of hoping for a group of teens inexplicably gaining powers and working together to find out why; but then again that might just be me wanting to play Persona 4 again.

Between the second and third teaser I'm thinking this is going to be a Heroes style superhero/villain rpg with a slightly darker tone.

A fairly interesting trailer, though being so vague it really does nothing to get me interested in whatever project they're promoting...

With each new trailer I'm caring less and less, so I would hardly call it a teaser.

@Pelezinho777 This, again? It's been 2 years and the ending wasn't even that bad. Get over it.

Pateu's postulate: '' As an online discussion about RPGs or sci fi grows longer, the probability of a comparison or bashing involving Mass Effect 3 approaches 1. ''


Congrats on being sheep.

@Marsh87 I'm getting that impression now, too. Yeah, I can't wait to see the reveal trailer to this.

@Gankstar_VX84 Yeah it was pretty obvious in the second trailer but this one totally confirmed it for me.

@OutlawJT Was thinking the same thing and this new teaser certainly reinforces that idea.

@ThePowerOfHAT Oh I loved the FMV sequences of old games, especially Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight. I don't know why they had to scrap that and go for in-engine cut-scenes. Today's talk about games being "cinematic" only makes me think of how cinematic those FMV sequences were.
