Mass Effect 4 might have more playable races other than just humans

GamingBolt: "After BioWare’s Casey Hudson, the man in charge of the Mass Effect franchise, earlier revealed that the new Mass Effect game- Mass Effect 4, or whatever it is going to be called when it eventually comes out- is is very early stages of development and BioWare would like fan feedback to know what will we included in the game, fans obviously started sending in suggestions." (BioWare, EA, Mass Effect 4, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

i always wanted this, but they shouldnt go crazy with the amount of playable races if it means it will lessen the content or length of the game

also ets have the story on a plantery scale and not a galatic one, you simply arent gonna top the epicness of the ME trilogy, and it would feel contrived to do so

so ditch inter galactic travel and lets have a planet or city ro roam about, imagine having the entire of nos astra and use those flying cars to travel the map? imagine being an under cover agent total recall style

or even maybe have the game set on a newly colonised small moon, you could then even build an enitre planet! albeit a very small one and free roam around it Skyrim style!! the possibilities are endless with this franchise

I agree. A more controlled arc is clearly what they're after considering the direction they took in mass effect 3; not to mention the universe will shine a little more brightly if it's concealed behind a tighter setting. Don't get me wrong I love mass effect's galaxy trotting and visuals but I think the art style would do better with a setting that isn't so.... white and space ship-y. Yeah there are lots of places in between that rock but there's a lot of white space ship-y moments in the mass effect series that just sort of dull out at times. As an environment it felt quite sterile.

I just hope it wont be on ps3/360 but on ps4/720 instead . the trilogy was neat , but it's obvious consoles hindered its goal of being some free form adventures , with instead lots of choices and planets , but confined within corridors ...

i hope each race has its own racial abilities like the krogan could have 50% damage resistance from melee damage or the geth could have tech bonus for all tech powers.

I wonder how they'd do it, as each 'playable race' you would think would cost them more. Maybe it's possible they'd use the same voice, but it would still need a bunch of unique lines, and perhaps record some line multiple ways...think of the way a Krogan talks, and thus if a Krogan is not putting aggressive force behind his words, then it wouldn't be Krogan.

If they need 10 commander shepards...err scratch than 20 since it would need female versions, the dang voice talent would be really expensive. Especially in ME5 and 6.

Im against many playable races because it makes it so much more difficult to maintain the character to play out like each race. Kinda of an epic job for Bioware. If its half cosmetic and mostly an illusion of the races like in Dragon Age then its fine if ppl want that but not me. I want to believe in that race just the way I understand human beings.

They should focus on one playable race and weave an intricate story with some better gameplay systems.
