UPDATE: With more information coming out, it has come to light that this is XCOM 2. I imagine with E3 just around the corner this was a ploy for publicity and marketing. It also means more information is to come!
So I was going through my emails last night and I noticed one from a few days ago saying “The ADVENT Administration Welcomes You” and I had no idea what this was, but saw it was from “2k” so I figured I would check it out. I was on my phone, but even still the images started to glitch and freak out which is when I had that slight thought of “OH NO, I SHOULDN’T HAVE OPENED THIS EMAIL… :(“.
Reading the email and using logic I realized that this is probably a campaign to hype up this game or thing. Not sure if it is a “game”, but I would assume it is since this is a game developing company.
From the email I am gathering that ADVENT is a community that is growing and a place to live with ease and safety. This is the email received.
Your Future Starts Now!
We are thrilled to share all the exciting ADVENT news with you. It’s a wonderful time to be alive. Stay up to date with all the latest right here.
Experience a new way of life like you’ve never dreamed possible.
Imagine a place free from hunger, from sickness, from war. Now imagine if that place was truly possible.
The ADVENT Administration strives in creating a global community in which all citizens can live comfortably—and now, you can be a part of that reality too. Built from advanced technologies, the new City Centers are havens where all citizens can live in peace and prosper for generations to come.
So being curious and having that slight “I’ve probably been hacked, and I am on my phone so why stop here..” feeling. I clicked the Learn More and it brings you to this URL: http://www.adventfuture.org/
This site is basically a selling page for ADVENT while showing that the whole thing is a lie and that someone or a group of people are watching. Everything glitches out and is making this place sound dangerous saying “ADVENT LIES” and instead of millions living the ADVENT way, millions are missing.
Here is a screenshot from the webpage itself if you want to read everything without it glitching out because as you scroll, if you scroll too far past a certain point of the section it will start to change and quickly too. The second one is the site after it has all the corruptions in place.
I think the idea of running campaigns like this is kind of cool, but doesn’t mean the end product will be great… It could just be a great way to ensure some launch sales because of the HYPE and curiosity of the consumer. I imagine there will be more details brought out in the future, such as Alpha’s and Beta’s of the game since those are becoming a lot more popular and this company did one with its last big release “Evolve”.
I just thought this was kind of cool because it seems like shit is about to hit the fan and become intense.
Looking through the page on the surface and you will find a pamphlet to sell you on the place. You can view it on their site here or on my site: ADVENT Gene Therapy Clinic (I hosted it incase they remove it or the link becomes broken)
You will also find 4 photo’s with captions that can be shared via Facebook or Twitter, letting the world know there is happy residents at this “ADVENT” place.
Back tracking on the page a bit there is also this image:
Which is clickable and opens a gallery with 3 images displayed in a slider (only 2 are different then the main image).
I think that this is exciting and can’t wait to see what they bring in the future 😀
What are your thoughts on this whole thing?
