Last year a collection of mysterious videos were released teasing a brand new game from Mass Effect and Dragon Age creator BioWare. No one had a clue what they were for, but the viral marketing campaign was effective in getting gamers excited.
Unfortunately that excitement died quickly for many when the game was revealed as being a four versus one online co-op game titled Shadow Realms, in which you and three other players would team up to take on a powerful player-controlled enemy (or you alone would take on four others). As it turns out, interest in the game was apparently even lower than thought, as BioWare has announced that they’re actually canceling it entirely.

Over the past few weeks we’ve seen a series of strange and intriguing viral marketing teases for an upcoming BioWare and Electronic Arts game known only as the You’ve Been Chosen mystery project.
BioWare was part of EA’s presentation at Gamescom 2014 today, mainly for Dragon Age: Inquisition, but also to finally reveal what this mystery game of theirs really is. The game is officially titled Shadow Realms and it’s…probably not what you were hoping it would be.
Continue reading for all the details and to check out two trailers, one live-action that brings all of those teasers together and the other a gameplay trailer, as well as a gameplay demo.
The fourth teaser for BioWare’s mystery project, currently known only as You’ve Been Chosen, has been released. You can watch the previous three right here if you missed them.
The new teaser is titled “Fire,” and continues the common theme of people with super special abilities using their powers, one way or another. BioWare is at Gamescom 2014, and a special event for the game is scheduled to go down tomorrow, so hopefully we’ll have a title and hopefully some gameplay (or at least a cinematic) to share then!
For now, you can check out the “Fire” teaser below.
Another teaser has been released by BioWare and EA for their mysterious You’ve Been Chosen game, which has had a bizarre and intriguing viral marketing campaign thus far.
The teaser, called “Impact,” fits in with the previous two videos (“Nightmare” and “Spark”), all being cryptic and strange. It would appear that the game could possibly be some kind of mix between X-Men and Harry Potter, where people with special abilities are chosen for something, but nothing is confirmed yet.
You can read about some new information and check out the teaser below.
Recently a mysterious teaser trailer was released for something new from Mass Effect and Dragon Age developer BioWare. The teaser was called “Nightmare,” and declared clearly and quite cryptically that “You’ve Been Chosen.”
Now a second teaser for the mystery project has been released, this time dubbed “Spark,” and the mystery grows. It too is strange and reveals little, but is worth watching if you’re excited by mysterious new games from top developers being teased through viral marketing.
