  • Mass Effect: Andromeda

    We all know that a new Mass Effect game is inevitable. There are already rumours that it's gonna be announced at the EA conference. It's apparently halfway done and Yanick Roy, the studio director for Bioware Montreal [developer of the new ME] will be visiting E3 for the first time in 8 years.

    It's been over 2 years since the last game in series... makes sense to announce it, perhaps with a short trailer like it was done with ME3, to build up the hype. New protagonist, new worlds, new species - it's a rich universe. Just hoping it's not a prequel.





    Any thoughts? Excited or just not interested after the last Mass Effect ?

    I'll wait and see how the new DA:I turns out, then I'll know how I feel about a new ME. Right now, it doesn't really excite me.

      I want to have a glimmer of hope but then I remind myself they probably still have the same writers on staff. Mass Effect was my re-entry into gaming and the way it ended hit me especially hard.

        I'm not excited. Even a bit worried. I have this prejudice against revisiting franchises with a different storyline when they're so heavily associated with a specific one. It's a similar concern I have for The Witcher, though not as reassured.

          Couldn't care less. Might be a piece of shit for all we know and people are still going to buy it.

          I agree with Reptile. Let's see what Bioware can do to rescue Dragon Age. Then we'll know if this is a lost cause.

            The rumoured title is Mass Effect Contact. (maybe referring to first contact war?)

            I am not holding my breath to get shafted by another greenhorn feeling game, the only people I trust are reds, the last game left me feeling blue.
            Now then, since that is out of the way I sure do hope they don't butcher it, they have their hands on a pretty sweet universe, still, not gonna keep any hopes for this one unless and hope to be surprised.

              In any case, I'll buy it for the multiplayer.

              I don't like the fact they're making another Mass Effect storywise. Mass Effect was made to be a trilogy and nothing more.
              If it's a sequel, I'll be pissed a little, because they can't take into account the choice you had in ME3. It would mean 3 complete different "world state" from the start (even four).
              If they manage to make something else than "saving the universe" again, I will be more interested. Maybe some kind of investigation in space, I liked a lot the premises of ME1 for that...

              And I'll say it again: BioWare needs to make a new IP. It could demonstrate if they have something left in their brains or not.

              Someone at Gamestop's said this is a whole new trilogy, a prequel to the first one.

                I hate prequels.

                  DA:I and the new ME are made by different studios if I'm not mistaken.

                    I wish they took the franchise into bold new directions like make it like Wing Commander OR X-Com.

                    EDIT: Or both. Man, that would be something.

                      Some different people work on them, there are also some that work on both. Either way, the two franchises have been very, very similar - while it may be mostly different teams, it's still the same company, so the same development philosophies apply.

                          Nope. It's gonna be about teh characters and romance. Because that's what makes Bioware special. Seriously though, I totally agree. Either do a genre chnage with the IP, or create a new IP altogether. And do some house cleaning; why are Casey Hudson and Laidlaw still the creative directors? They've proven their incompetence time and again.

                              Frankly, I just don't know where can they take the franchise next. I mean, what else is there to do? We've saved the universe from giant machines hellbent on destroying all advanced life. They can't possibly top that and they have to know that - no matter what comes next, it's gonna have a smaller scale.
