I had the same email but the website is blocked at work. Can't see what it's about.

The website seems to be a bit under stress, but I'll save everyone the effort and tell you that there is no extra information there other than this:

The time is near.
They are watching.
Your power is rising.
Cologne, Germany.
You’ve Been Chosen.

Watch the new “Nightmare” teaser from BioWare.

Sign up for the latest updates.


Very helpful. :rolleyes: Let's see what happens.

Was about to post the same, no real information whatsoever. :) The campaign does work though, quite curious now.

Campaign? Is that something in the email? What's it about?

EDIT: I only just understood what you meant about the campaign - you meant the advertising campaign. I agree, it's got me interested as well.

No, I used a Dutch translation there, maybe I didn't make it all to clear. I meant "ad" "ad campaign". It's clearly a teaser for something to come, they send you this e-mail, making you feel "chosen", but don't reveal much information and people start talking about it. Quite effective if you ask me.

No no, you were quite correct. Since this is discussing a video game though my first thought was a single player campaign rather than the advertising campaign. As I said in my correction above, you're right that it's done its job - I want to know more. ;)

Would have been cool if these videos were rendered using the game's engine, you know it being late 2014 and all.
