Mass Effect – Latest Details
Mass Effect 4, is definitely coming, but so far almost nothing substantial has been revealed from EA or Bioware. Every now and then we get the occasional teases from people involved in the game, through interviews or by some very exciting tweets.
Industry insider Shinobi602, has shared some information in Neogaf regarding Mass Effect’ release:
“From people I’ve talked to close to the thing, it’s still a 2016 release but haven’t yet nailed down deciding between Spring or Fall. EA usually has multiple high-profile releases every year, and with Battlefield 5 targeting Q4 2016, for now until I hear more, I’m assuming earlier than Fall is the target. They did however release NFS Rivals and BF4 at the same time, so it could still be the Fall. Of course, delays are always possible with any game, but this thing’s been in development since 2012. It won’t skip next year.”
Chris Wynn, Senior Development Director of Mass Effect, recently tweeted about the combat of the game by saying:
“Combat is looking pretty great in the latest builds. Biotics plus weapons plus powerful hardware is amazing.”
Michael Gamble stated on Twitter:
“Oh, what’s that? The Mass Effect team is finishing another milestone soon? It’s almost like we are building a real game or something.”
Mass Effect should make an appearance at E3 later this year, lets hope we’re in for a treat
What could Michael Gamble be referring at? Lets hope that everything comes together, and we do get to see something truly spectacular at E3 later this year. Mass Effect has been in development for such a long time, and it would be quite exciting to see what Bioware has in store for the future of the amazing Mass Effect universe.
To call the next game ‘Mass Effect 4’ or ‘ME4’ is doing it a disservice and seems to cause a lot of confusion here. We have already said that the Commander Shepard trilogy is over and that the next game will not feature him/her. That is the only detail you have on the game. I see people saying ‘well, they’ll have to pick a canon ending.’ No, because the game does not have to come after. Or before. Or off to the side. Or with characters you know. Or yaddayaddayadda. Wherever, whenever, whoever, etc will all be revealed years down the road when we actually start talking about it. I do not call the game ME4 when I talk about it ever, [because] that makes people think of it more as ‘what happens after ‘Mass Effect 3’ rather than ‘what game happens next set in the ‘Mass Effect’ Universe. Obviously fans are going to speculate content, character and story until we actually reveal details in the years or months to come as you have almost no actual details, just don’t get bogged down in ‘well how are they going to continue ME3.’ Chris Priestly
