Update: The teaser site for Obsidian’s new RPG project we told you about yesterday has been updated, revealing more details about the mysterious "Project X".
The most important change to take note of is the fact that the number four has now become a three, revealing it to be a countdown rather than an indication of what the title may be. This means we should get more answers when the number reaches zero, which will happen on Friday.
New text has also appeared though, which reads, "The book unread is unwritten. The reason we don’t explain it is the reason we use it. Its power is in its mystery. That is the Leaden Key, in part, in whole. Is it clear?"
"Digging for truth buries the seeker."
Though that’s the only text visible on the page, a quick look its source code reveals a bit more: "Two centuries ago, your divine champion told the people of Dyrwood to grovel at his feet. If you’ve come on pilgrimage to the blasted crater that was our reply, Godhammer Citadel is *that* way."
So, does this give us any crucial hints about what the game is? The fact the number has changed makes Dungeon Siege 4 a less likely candidate than it was yesterday, but it’s still possible. While Obsidian has spent a fair amount of time in the past working on other company’s IPs, there’s nothing to suggest this couldn’t be a brand new endeavour of its own.
We’ll find out more over the coming days.
Original Story: A teaser for what appears to be a countdown to the reveal of a brand new game has appeared on popular RPG developer Obsidian’s website.
The landing page currently features the number four enveloped by an Ouroboros, an ancient symbol depicting a snake or a dragon eating its own tail. The text below reads: "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."
Clicking on the image takes you to forum landing page for Project X Speculation & Discussion where Obsidian fans have begun to speculate on what the words mean.
Described as a forum for "Obsidian’s next RPG endeavor" it teases said game is so secret "not even its project codename is yet being revealed."
Stick around for updates and speculation.
