bioware teaser

CVG‘s carrying what it claims to be a still from the trailer of BioWare’s VGA reveal. It’s close, children.

The shot shows a first-person perspective where a woman is seen to be reaching out to a child.

I won’t spoil it for everyone by telling you what the game is,” a source told the site.

But it’s going to have a lot of hardcore BioWare fans jumping out of their seats.”

EA’s apparently confirmed it’s a shot taken from the trailer, but not much else.

BioWare teased on Tuesday in its latest binary code a red herring. So far, pointers are indiciating that the title is somewhere in the Mass Effect universe: a multiplayer-based spin-off the main event, Mass Effect 3.

We’ll find out this Saturday at the VGAs.

    Jumping out their seats ‘excited’ or jumping out their seats ‘furious’?

    I’m guessing maybe the latter.

    If it’ll have Bioware fans excited then we can assume it’ll be a sequel to something. Looking at the games they’ve released its either Mass Effect or Shattered Steel or at a stretch, MDK. All of their other games dont match that setting. Not unless its Baldur’s Gate set in the future.

    Those fences in the bottom of the image doesn’t look very Mass Effecty. New IP, perhaps?

    It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s an FPS. Judging by the crosshair, it might just as well be the scoped view (which is also a sort-of-FPS perspective in ME1 and ME2 when using sniper rifles). Also keep in mind that the guy shown in the teaser actually does hold a sniper rifle.

    I’m sure CVG’s US source isn’t terminal hype monger Geoff Keighley, oh no.

    Anyway, we’re supposed to think the guy pictured earlier is taking aim at this woman — CVG running with that line in return for the shot — but really he’s looking out for her and will shoot a half destroyed Geth as it leaps at her or somesuch.

    What about a downloadable game. Kina prequel of the sequel. Maybe 360 exclusive, maybe ps3 exclusive (because srsly, this novel stuff gonna suck)

    I’ll cry happy tears if it turns out to be MDK3 but I’m pretty sure Interplay holds the rights to that.

    This IS Mass Effect 3.

    okay so the clothes in the pic do look like they are from ME and the crosshairs seem to be similar to those that are used by some of the sniper rifles in ME2, so i’m thinking it might just be a true expansion to ME2 (ya that bridging dlc that they saying their making) that all the fans are dying for or it could something entirely different either way i’ll be getting whatever the fuck it is they’re teasing

    btw: did someone see the third person in the upper left corner of the screenshot? he is running away from something i believe
    @8. Aimless: yeah, that’s what i was thinking
    i really want to believe its ME3 or some other ME-game but i just cant be sure
    just two more days and we’ll know…

    The technology looks dated back further then the current timeline in Mass Effect, it’s more likely that it’s a multiplayer spin off or some sort of prequel to Mass Effect, maybe something during the First Contact War which I remember someone mentioning when the first teaser came out…but there is no way this is Mass Effect 3 or a true follow up to the Commander Shepard story, and since many times it has been said that Mass Effect will be a trilogy it definitely has to be some sort of prequel spin off or something completely unrelated…
