Bioware has begun a new ad campaign, but for what? Follow along at www.youve-been-chosen.com and enjoy the videos dubbed “Nightmare” and “Spark” below. Personally, I think/hope they are trying to pull off the nerd trifecta. With Dragon Age and Mass Effect they already have Fantasy and Sci-Fi covered. I would love to see what they could do with super powers in a modern setting.
The good news about video game campaigns like this is that they are usually afraid of losing the public interest, so the reveal should be pretty quick.
It appears the game is Shadow Realms. A 4vs1 episodic RPG… sounds intresting. A little info from the site…
From the storytelling experts at BioWare comes Shadow Realms™, a new 4v1 story-driven Online Action RPG with dynamic co-op missions in a constantly evolving BioWare world. Join an ongoing adventure with new episodes released frequently. Experience the thrill of making your own choices as to the path you take through the story, uncovering new mysteries and revealing hidden twists unexpectedly as you progress.

Summon all your powers as you prepare to battle a player-controlled Shadowlord, who possesses the ultimate weapon – the human mind.
The power is yours. You’ve been chosen.
