BioWare's New Mystery Game Is...

Last week brought reports that BioWare plans to reveal a new game at this year's Video Game Awards on Spike TV. Although the developer didn't provide actual details, it offered a 20-second teaser trailer (featuring 4 seconds of actual footage) and two QR codes. Needless to say, gamers took the bait and ran, dissecting and speculating.

Unfortunately the hunt for the truth was short lived. If a SCEE Russia Twitter entry was correct, then the mystery game will be a multi-platform Mass Effect 3. Surprised? You shouldn't be given the three clues offered last week: the possible appearance of the M-29 Incisor Sniper Rifle in the video, the QR hinting to the atomic mass of iron, and the other QR pointing to the fictional planet Aequitas located in the Fortis system--a system residing in the Mass Effect universe.

"Company #BioWare Award for #VideoGameAwards showed a teaser, in which we can see the first footage #MassEffect 3," the translated Twitter entry read.

As of this writing, the passage has since been removed, confirming that SCEE Russia may have spoken too soon. In BioWare's defense, the SCEE Russia staffer could have been wrong, and the clues lead to a Mass Effect spin-off. Guess we'll see next month on December 11.

    Razor512They need to stop being lazy and release mass effect 3 already. I have played through all of the mass effect 2 expansions and now I am suffering from mass effect withdrawal.I need some mass effect 3 now please.Th the game being released is not mass effect 3 then they need to stop what ever they are doing and release mass effect 3


    Lazy? Excuse me? Half Life 2 took six years and Starcraft 2 took ten. Both of which turned out to be fantastic games. Simmer the fuck down and wait. Rushed games are never good.

    Ah yes finally! Man I had so much fun with ME2 that I held off on going through the relay until I had every single other quest done. Seriously that dang relay was waiting for like 2 months. XD
