Bioware asking for fan’s input for new Mass Effect game

Earlier this year Bioware made it clear that the company would be developing a new installment for the ‘Mass Effect’ series. Although Bioware is only at the drafting table for the project, fan’s input is already welcomed.

At this point we don’t know anything about the upcoming title, what platform it will play on or who the main protagonist will be. With your help though, some of the more pressing story-lines and plot-twists could be included in the game. The Executive Producer, Casey Hudson, asked for fan’s input on his Twitter account stating, “We’re in early stages of designing a completely new Mass Effect game. What would you want to see in it?”. (BioWare, Next-Gen)

I'd love to see a turn-based spinoff of the me3 universe. Sorry, I still have x-com fever. Going to the doc tomorrow.

X-Com actually feels kind of like Mass Effect at times due to the music and the alien ships and bases and the armor.

I think a DL Mass Effect turn based squad combat game is a no brainer. Imagine calling in fire support from a tank or calling in a shuttle to exfil trapped troops.

Likewise I think another Fallout Tactics game would rock.

I've already pre-ordered a copy of Wasteland 2 and am thinking of getting the upcoming ShadowRun game.

Since when does EA actually listen to their fans? Battlefield 3 would be on Steam, we would not have online passes for single player games, there would be roster updates for sports games annually without the need to buy a new game each year, they would not drop online support so quickly, the list goes on.

I don't see why they are asking

They asked fans for an ultra collectors edition for Mass Effect 3 and in the end scrapped it.

I wouldnt mind being able to choose a race for the SP. But only if they're willing to give each their own animations. Armor customisation for each race and LOTS of it and race exclusive powers. On top of that since each race has stereotypes to their personalities so there could be dialogue options exclusive to a race along with racial bonuses.

Assuming its like ME1-3 and we have a ship could we have space battles? This would be awesome because we could customise the colours of the ship and add different weapons and upgrades and it would be a nice addition IMO! Best way to think of an example would be AC3 with naval warfare :)

Don't let Shepard go.

I'd vote no MP what so ever, even as a tack-on or "extra;" Single Player only without co op or some typical MP component.

Also if possible have an easier way to complete 3 with Sheppard alive (I know there's one way to however it's harder to complete) and continue with his story; It'd be nice to see him through another fight.

I say make a prequel and set it during the rachnia wars and the creation of the genophage

I would love to see something as open-ended as Privateer or Fallout set in the ME universe, though EA probably has them on too tight a leash for something that awes- I mean "risky." :(

Why the hell does everyone want Shepard back? Whether you like the ending or not, I'd say it's clear his/her story's over. Really feel like they've done everything they can/should with that group of characters. Cameo here and there would be great - hell, required - but I think it's time for a new central cast.

1.) Ditch EA...and ME
2.) Go back to MS
3.) Make Jade Empire 2 and a Baldur's Gate open world RPG.

My advice to Bioware:

1. Cease all work on a future Mass Effect game
2. Pour all resources and energy into building a time machine
3. Travel back to the halfway point of ME2's development
4. Somehow convince Drew Karpyshyn to stay on the Mass Effect 2 team, also, make choices from the first game have more of an impact in the second
5. Manage to keep Karpyshyn on board through Mass Effect 3, also, make choices from the second game have more of an impact in the third
6. Probably the most important step. Do not allow Casey Hudson and Mac Walters to write the ending alone and then not have it peer reviewed by the rest of the team

Given that it became more like Gears of War with ME2, the misstep with ME3 ending among with other issues with ME3 and inability to admit said misstep in any honest or meaningful way, what the point?

Though really its three simple things:
1) Go back to ME1.
2) Be honestly through when making the game. give the dev team time.
3) don't make it all about one character. And if its post ME3 and Sheppard's in it - you've f*cked beyond recovery.

Dont listen to fans they ruin everything.
LiquidSword93  +   1183d ago
No point in asking what they want if you ignore them, bioware.
mananimal  +   1183d ago
Why ask fans when you jerks already know what we wanted for Mass Effect 3, but being your predisposed to your Publisher's Agenda, you didnt give a crap & went ahead. & did what you wanted, so why ask?, its too late, another mighty franchise as been ruined, The founders have left the sinking ship called Bioware. Its Over, get it?! over.

Im not buying into ANYTHING Published by those devils called EA, nothing. Save your inquiries cause CORE Gamers, True Fans of what was once a great Franchise, have already moved on.
