It’s here; information on Mass Effect exists… kind of.
Casey Hudson, Bioware’s executive producer, revealed some vague information on the title during EA’s E3 press conference. He confirmed that the newest Mass Effect title will feature a completely new cast of characters and a slew of new planets.
Some prototype footage was shown depicting a new portion of the universe, with war-torn environments; which is a vast departure from the locations in the original trilogy.
It is also worth noting that Hudson restated that BioWare Montreal is designing Mass Effect 4, and the Edmonton studio is creating some other unknown IP that is designed to tell “contemporary stories.”
With the creation of an entirely new universe, the team now has a “chance to have a clean sheet of design to start at the most fundamental set of principles you can have,” said BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn.
