BioWare Chooses You For New Horror Title: See Nightmare Here

BioWare Chooses You For New Horror Title: See Nightmare Here

Why hello Nyarlathotep, I didn't see you there, wibble wibble.

As for what it will be when it grows up, your guess is as good as anyone's, but BioWare clearly has something fun on the way. You've Been Chosen, the Nightmare teaser beckons, but chosen for what? Some fantastic, dream-like imagery, by the look of it; here's hoping that nice fellow in the sharp suit isn't going to do anything too damning to your precious Sanity.

A quick trip over to the website reveals a few cryptic notes. "The time is near. They are watching. Your power is rising. Cologne, Germany. You've Been Chosen." Presumably the Cologne reference has to do with Gamescom, so we should be finding out more in August.

Wish I could be there! I've always liked German beer, though if it's going to become the stuff of nightmares, perhaps it's best to keep a distance. In the meantime enjoy the teaser, and try to avoid Their unsettling gaze ...

If this is some sort of horror game from BioWare, I look forward to romancing whatever ghosts, nightmarish apparitions, or eldritch abominations players will encounter.

That right there should be the gay option for male characters. Come over here, Smokey!

You can romance the different old gods and high priests, looking forward to romancing Nyarlathotep, Hastur or Cthugah!

We'll see how they'll deal with the horror genre then, if you have any means to defend yourself, or just another, keep running and don't look back thing. :p

You know your company doing well when people are making joke bout your horror game. Meh maybe they can avoid screwing this up too.

Um...Wouldn't that cover ALL horror games?

I don't mean to sound snarky, I'm actually curious. Is there a horror game where you don't fight back or run from something/someone?

Anyway.
OT: Should be neat to see how BioWare handles a full horror game. They've dipped their toes in horror every once in a while with their other games, so it will be neat to see them dive in.

Hope they don't jump on the shallow side of the pool.... <.<

I got an email from Bioware titled "YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN". My heart skipped a beat. Was I invited into some early alpha or beta project? Oh joy of joys!

Nope. Just a clever marketing scheme. Damnit Bioware.

I'm not sure if it's related, as I am not familiar with the source material, but that still bears a striking resemblance to this one:

Might give us some kind of clue as to what it's about if it really does draw from the same inspirational well.

people make jokes out of all kinds of things

OT: it will probably be something really underwhelming...like a mobile game

If this trailer isn't the most clichéd and David Lynch-rip off trailer ever,

I have never watched any of the many, many, many Horror movies or games I've watched or played.

PS: translation: fraking boring!!!

A horror title... from BioWare? Well played, EA, well played.

The... gentleman... in the chair does look a bit Nyarlathotep-ish, doesn't he?

Oh god...Bioware....doing a Lovecraftian horror game. I'll be in my bunk.

Dead Space 3's DLC was indeed scary, but not the type I find enjoyable. No thank you EA.

Or Slendy, or Malone (Those who have heard of him will have an idea of who I'm talking about.). I concur, I hope this IS an RPG, and you have a means to defend himself. And speaking of, does anyone else want a Creepypasta RPG?

a horror where you can kill monsters is no horror game

Well then, I guess there aren't a lot of horror games, are there. Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Dead Space the First (I already know about the fact that people claim the later games in that series weren't horror), Condemned: Criminal Origins...apparently, these are no longer horror games.

to be honest maybe i wasent clear enough horror is not to triump(to fight and kill) over the nightmare then it would not be a horror.

a horror is a never ending nightmare like a zombie outbreak. you know that no matter how much you fight you can never win.
take call of cathulu in the end

.

resident evil, silent hill, dead space(he goes insane and his world is doomed) are horror games. condemned not so much.

I know, right? I thought it was for the Dragon Age Keep. Whatevs', I hope the best for this. I wonder how the gameplay will be. Bioware has always done RPGs with lots of dialog, charismatic characters and a big tendency to cinematics. Most horror I know in games comes mostly from gameplay. I don't think the game will be truly scary, but very psicological and tense.
