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

BioWare and Electronic Arts have released a “Nightmare Teaser” trailer (and website) for the studio’s new game ahead of Gamescom next month. Needless to say a proper announcement with actual details relating to the game will follow at the event, but for now gamers can watch the trailer after the jump and ask themselves, “What really happens when we sleep?”

In what appears to be a slip-up of sorts on EA’s part, an email sent to fans and press relating to the teaser contained a thumbnail image named “Shadow_Realms_Teaser_video.jpg”. This, along with the fact that  EA trademarked the name Shadow Realms back in March, seems to pretty obviously imply that the game will be titled Shadow Realms.

Apart from that little tidbit, however, there is almost no other information on the new game. We will have to wait and see what the makers of Mass Effect and Dragon Age have in store for us at Gamescom in a few weeks.
