London calling.

Another binary image for the next BioWare game has appeared online in the developer’s Facebook page.

After decoding said image, it leads to this: a greatest hits cover from The Clash.

Let’s put two and two together.

The last binary image showed revealed the British Secret Intelligence’s website.

Plus, as Beefjack notes, what’s The Clash’s most famous song? London Calling.

Bam. London. Right?

We’ll find out everything on December 11.

    You can’t really say it would be London Calling. That’s their most iconic song it all depends on what they want to say really.
    Rock the Casbah and Should I Stay or Should I go charted better and sold a bit more.
    The last song could make sense if they wanted to have a departure from the currently barebones RPG model of ME2 to a more shooter or some sort of different MP game. Or even if they wanted to let you play as someone other than Shepard.

    Rock the Casbah fits in with the Political themes hints and the remote connotation of British Secret Intelligence in that it accidentally caught, albeit this is US military, two RF-4C aircraft landing at Bergstrom Air Force Base when they were singing the lines the king called out his jetfighters.

    Not to mention Casbah is Citadel when you translate it and The Citadel is probably the greatest creation of the Protheans.
    You could use Should I Stay or Should I go considering the fate of the Protheans or even the fate of Shepard I guess.
    It’s not one song basically, it’s a few I guess.

    @1 Like your thoughts about the casbah/citadel translation. The British Secret Intelligence Service building is also known locally as Babylon on Thames due to its design. I wonder if that’s the connection Bioware were going for? As cool as it might be, I just don’t see them releasing a major game set in London :(
