Yesterday, we reported that Obsidian Entertainment had teased a new title on their official website. Today, the website has been updated with the number encircled by the Ouroboros reducing from 4 to 3, indicating that it is indeed a countdown.
Furthermore, the text beneath the image has also changed, and reads as follows:
“The book 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.”
However, that is not all. Taking a look at the page source code reveals more information, which goes like this:
“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”.
Obviously, this doesn’t really make things much clearer, although it could potentially rule out Dungeon Siege 4 as the number was revealed as a countdown. Speculation continues!
Update: The countdown has now reached 2 with this quote:
“I recognize your pain. Your kind must learn it comes from straining against the turning of the world. It spins thus. You cannot stop it. One day, you will wake up. You will stop pulling. The pain will be gone. Until then, all your waking hours are suffering.”
Also, you can find the following embedded in the page’s source code:
“< !–. X . X X I T X — >
< !– In time, waves washing against the fingers of Geiran’s Grasp will call them back into the sea. The difference between you and the sea is that the sea does not stop. — >”
Speculators on the Obsidian Entertainment forums believe this message to be the name of the project. Going on the assumption that each period denotes a vowel and each x a consonant, it is believed that this project is entitled Eternity.
What do you guys think?
