BioWare to reveal new IP at Gamescom, trailer hints
Mass Effect and Dragon Age studio BioWare may announce a brand new IP at GamesCom, if a teaser site and trailer launched by EA is any indication.
The website, You’ve Been Chosen.com, is working intermittently. It states: “The time is near. They are watching. Your power is rising. Cologne, Germany. You’ve Been Chosen.”
Gamescom 2014 will take place in Cologne from August 13-17.
In September 2012, BioWare Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flynn confirmed a Mass Effect 3 follow-up, which he said was in development alongside a new IP “built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology”.
“Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect started as single games but grew into vast universes. But we aren’t stopping there,” he said.
“While Casey [Hudson] continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology.”
Earlier this year EA filed a trademark for something called Shadow Realms.
