Could BioWare be building a horror game? That’s certainly the implication in this so-called “Nightmare teaser,” which hints at a Gamescom reveal.

The live-action short features a hoodie-wearing white dude running around in a nightmare dreamscape populated by an infinite alleyway, a suited man with a gushing cloud of smoke where his head should be, and a stone-faced doppelganger of our hero(?) locked inside a muscle car.

Don’t look for sense where there is none (yet). Check out the trailer below, then head over to www.Youve-Been-Chosen.com to find a newsletter sign-up and some cryptic text:

The time is near. They are watching. Your power is rising. Cologne, Germany. You’ve Been Chosen. Watch the new “Nightmare” teaser from BioWare. 

Cologne, Germany is the site of Europe’s annual Gamescom consumer show. It kicks off on August 13, 2014 and runs through August 17, so we should get some clarity on this Nightmare in a few weeks. In the meantime, what do you think is going on here?

There are countless genres of video game genres to get lost in -- but one of the most popular is the first-person shooter (FPS).

How to get Power Armor in Fortnite
The fallout power armor in Fortnite.

As soon as Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 3 was revealed to have a crossover with the Fallout franchise, we all knew it had to include the Power Armor. Now that the season is out, we can confirm that there are not just one, but three different versions of the iconic metal suit to wear, but it may not be quite what you hoped.

Instead of being something you can find and use on the map to become an unstoppable killing machine in like the source material, the Power Armor you can get in Fortnite is just a set of skins.
