A hint of a new game
Frictional games may be teasing people about their next game. It may be possible that they are using ARG for the same. ARG refers to the Augmented Reality Games. They are a way to engage with fans, game lovers and use them to promote their titles.
The two popular releases, Amnesia and Soma make the people more desperate to know about this. This ARG tease started in December 2019.
Earlier this year, there was a GIF that was trending all over the internet. The GIF shows a small white design on a completely black background. It was like a small embryo, which may be related to the nature of the game.
There were other reports also, according to which, if you carefully look over the symbol present on the lower right of the screen, you will get a piece of URL. The URL is suWaF-aldV4.
When you put this into a YouTube URL, you find an unlisted video on the Frictional Games account. Another discovery gives one more YouTube code which leads to a video named “Box 7 Reel2, Partial Success”. The video clip hints towards what’s coming.
The first clip features a picture of rocks with a blue color eye on it and in the second clip, there is an intense noise. Though it is not clear right now, the video, the sounds, the symbols, all these hints to a new thrill coming your way.
These types of ARG Campaigns definitely provide huge popularity and make it big news. Companies use ARGs to increase the curiosity and interests of people. If this is true then this will be great news for the gamers and gaming fans out there. The fans are already waiting for this to happen, and are trying their best to find out what’s cooking.
