Bioware, the developer of the tentatively-titled "Mass Effect 4," has revealed another teaser for a new intellectual property. According to a report from Aus Gamers on Aug. 7, a new live-action video showed a mysterious woman constantly muttering that it wasn't her fault, possibly referencing to a giant sinkhole that swallowed up an entire house at the end of the footage. The earlier teaser trailers showed more mysterious individuals along with other paranormal activities.

The new intellectual property is expected to be called "Shadow Realms." A representative from Bioware recently clarified that the Canadian studios won't be involved with the project. As a result, it appears that the development for the mysterious project is being handled by another internal unit.

The Canadian studios do have several big-budget games in production. The first of which is "Dragon Age Inquisition," which is being released later this year on Nov. 18. The second project is the aforementioned "Mass Effect 4," a spiritual successor to the first three installments of the science-fiction series. Bioware is also among the studios that will be working on a "Star Wars" project after Electronic Arts acquired the licensing rights last year.

The aforesaid "Shadow Realms" is expected to be officially announced next week at GamesCom 2014. The convention takes place at Cologne, Germany, starting from Aug. 13 and lasting until Aug. 17. Both Microsoft Studios and Sony Computer Entertainment are going to be holding press conferences at the event. So it may be possible that the announcement could be coming during the media briefings of the two console manufacturers.

Bioware could also reveal more details for "Mass Effect 4" at the same event. The studio has been talking openly about the latest installment of the series although it still does not have an official name. You can find a screenshot of the previous title, "Mass Effect 3," from the official Facebook page of the series near the top side of this article.
