Bioware Next Mass Effect Will Appeal to Longtime Fans and Newcomers

ME (1)

The next next Mass Effect game will appeal to seasoned fans and newcomers alike, developer BioWare has said.

Speaking on Twitter, BioWare Montreal studio director Yanick Roy said it is “too soon to say” if the Mass Effect Genesis system would return for the new game.

“But we’ll be sure to be friendly both to old fans and to newcomers,” Roy said.

Roy also responded to a question regarding whether or not the new Mass Effect game will retain the franchise’s open-mindedness when it comes to gender options and GLBTI-inclusive stories.

“There is no reason to believe otherwise at this point, don’t worry!” Roy said.

BioWare announced the next Mass Effect game last September. It will not feature Commander Shepard, as his story came to a close in last year’s Mass Effect 3.

The untitled game will run on the Frostbite 3 engine and, according to executive producer Casey Hudson, will be “fresh and new.”

    Better have Shepard appear even in cameos! He/she did not die in that mess in London, as the last scene showed, if one is watching closely. But, even so, there are other stories this fan is wondering about: 1) Romances: James and Jack, Tallie and Garrus, Edie and Joker 2) Children: Wrex and Eve’s son, Mordin. Did they have any others? 3) Couples: Liara and Javik: Did they actually travel the galaxy, exploring? 4) Finally, how did the galaxy rebuild?
    But, as I said, having Shepard just disappear would not be a good idea! He/she IS Mass Effect, and, without Shepard, even just making cameo appearances, there will be uprisings that will make the last ones look calm!
