Following today’s teaser clip and single image for BioWare’s new game, the developer’s provided two subtle hints at what it’ll be via their official Twitter account. The clues come in the form of barcodes, each holding a different binary message.
There are two ways we can put these clues together. The first, as provided by VideoGamer, is to say that: Iron is the most common element on Earth and that -128.5°F is the coldest temperature ever recorded on the planet. Therefore, this game takes place on Earth.
The second way, as provided by NeoGAF member EatChildren, is to say that: Mass Effect planet Aequitas is known for its Iron Canyons and that Aequitas has a surface temperature of -89°C. Therefore, this is a new Mass Effect game.
So. You’ve seen the trailer. You’ve seen the still. Your thoughts?
