Game Informer recently got a hold of the first teaser image from BioWare’s newest, currently unannounced franchise. The game’s official reveal will be a part of next month’s festivities at the Spike Video Games Award show on December 10th.
As far as teaser images go, this is actually a pretty good effort. Without obviously painting the game in any one particular direction the image only hints at what BioWare’s latest franchise might entail, but at the same time those hints aren’t so vague as to provide no speculative sustenance whatsoever.
We can reasonably assume two things based off the teaser. The first is that BioWare has moved away from the high fantasy setting of the Dragon Age series, as well the sci-fi trappings of the Mass Effect franchise.
The second is that at least one area (be it the whole game or just one part) will be desert based – note the pale blue sky and the sand kicked up by the crashing vehicle. Sand dunes are also present in the background, and the character flying through the air appears dressed for a desert (or at least very hot) environment.
Are BioWare planning an Uncharted 3-esque RPG? Who knows!
