Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Review - An RPG Masterpiece

Obsidian Entertainment, the Orange County-based studio beloved for their RPG heritage, have launched a teaser page on their official website, presumably building up to a new game announcement.

Featuring an Ouroboros symbol (the fantasy favourite depiction of a dragon eating its own tail) with the number four in the centre, the page features the cryptic text "What do the words mean? Nothing. The Dirge of Eír Glanfath is sound without form, a lone voice crying out in mourning because it must.", with a link leading to a forum that the developer has established especially for fans to speculate on what is only being referred to as "Project X".

Guesses have been pointing towards the long rumoured-licensed game based on the Wheel of Time franchise, but it's still far from confirmed.

Obsidian is currently working on the 2D RPG, South Park: The Stick of Truth with THQ, due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March 2013.

Please be Wheel of Time. The ouroboros lends to it and maybe the 4 stands for the fourth age (i.e. after the setting of the books)?

Yeah the Wheel of Time series has been in need of better adaptations ever since Legend had a crack in the late 90's. That release was horrible.

Why would they have a giant 4 if they're making the third of something? Classic misdirection?

dungeon siege 4?

rav - sounds about right, its the only license they hold where there have been 3 previous games.

theres also some text in the source

"To tenderness, fellowship. To fellowship, vigilance. So bring we all to the Night Market. I am the Spindle of Esenath. Know me by my light and stand with me in darkness. "

I doubt its the wheel of time game - that was supposed to be an MMO and I can't see anyone developing an MMO in today's environment without creating a significantly different strategy to anything else out there. Maybe though, they might have retooled the game to fit a different genre, which seems sensible given that they've already bought the license.

Fallout 4?

Of course the whole elf style reference doesn't add much creed to that, but still they did a good job on Vegas.

Bethesda will be making Fallout 4.
Posted 08:17pm 11/9/12
I'm kind of hoping Bethesda don't touch Fallout again myself :P (Other than having another studio develop it for them ala Vegas).

After Skyrim I am happy for them to have another crack at it. New Vegas was just so much better than Fallout 3 though it wasn't even funny.

That site has code commented in it:

Um clearly because that 4 is just 1 part of the cryptic information they're releasing. I see a 3

Please be more fallout, maybe with the skyrim engine seeing as surely they still have some kind of gig with Bethesda (regarding the the whole ip ownership thing) going by New Vegas' success.
Posted 01:22am 13/9/12
Maybe more Neverwinter Nights

Its a kickstarter project for a new IP based on the old isometric RPGs..... I am disappoint.
