BioWare has revealed that it has “future events” planned specifically for gamers who are unable to participate in the U.S.-only BioWare Bazaar.
There was a countdown. There was an explosion! And then there was the BioWare Bazaar, a virtual online auction that will let gamers vie for a huge selection of sweet BioWare swag, like stickers, t-shirts, posters and even branded PCs and Xbox 360s. But there’s a catch: Because of “last-minute legal complications,” the contest is only open to residents of the U.S., minus New York and Florida, which left an awful lot of BioWare fans out in the cold and not too happy about it.
But have no fear! BioWare loves you all and has plans to make sure everyone gets a shot at… well, something. “In the coming weeks, we will be announcing details about future events specifically for fans living in those territories which were excluded from participating in the first BioWare Bazaar,” co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka said in a message posted on the BioWare Social Network. “The future events will be a bit different from the first Bazaar in how they’re set up and structured, but our goal is to feature the same caliber of awesome prizes and great BioWare collectibles.”
No word on what the “future events” might be but as Zeschuk and Muzyka noted, the Bazaar was “the start of a year-long celebration around BioWare’s 15th anniversary,” so they’ve got lots of time to figure out something cool. In the meantime, I’m still collecting auction tokens – I knew all along that BioWare wouldn’t let us down.
