Mass Effect 4? Next Game Explained

During the Montreal International Game Summit (MIGS), IMGMR got the opportunity to interview Bioware Montreal's studio director Yanick Roy. During this interview, we were able to learn a little bit more about the upcoming Mass Effect installment after the conclusion to Bioware's popular trilogy.

Frostbite 2 FTW!!!

I'm not sure switching engines at this point is such a great idea :/

bootycandy1971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

Why not?? It's a more efficient and powerful engine.
Yes, it will delay the game by a bit. So what? I'd rather wait an extra year knowing that my $60 purchase goes to a game that's worth it, not using dated mechanics.

Bootycandy OUT.

The new engine will have more of a mass effect on the game as a whole.

Legion211971d ago

Definitely agree, don't fix what isn't broken. They've been using this engine for years and they're familiar with it. EA is ruining bioware/Mass effect

linkenski1971d ago

Listen folks. The modified UE3 engine used for the Mass Effect trilogy has seen it's days now, and ME3 actually got a little bit of critisism that the engine showed its age. Plus the trilogy is ended. The next game is likely to go in another direction, and i think Bioware want to move forward.

thegamingadvisory211971d ago

@legion21 Just because something is not broken does not mean they can not improve on it. If the graphics stayed the same the game will be stall and everyone will complain about how the graphics look nvr change . Change is not always for the bad . In Bioware we Trust

The first ME looked good for it's time but by the time even ME2 came out UE3 was already looking dated. I couldn't be happier they are changing tech.

Legion211970d ago

@thegamingadvisory2 using UE4 would make more sense. EA just doesn't want to pay.

I'd only be interested if they make it like the first Mass Effect, bring back the cool down weapons and make it more like an RPG.

I don't know about creating a new character, I put so much work into my Shepard and with the horrible ending we got...I don't know, it's like watching a TV series, liking the main character and his character development and then when you get to the series finale it turns out to be crap...your left there thinking "This guy and show deserve more then this, they should of went out with a bang".

We'll see I suppose but I'm not going to trust them.

linkenski1971d ago

I'd love to have another 'create-a-character' but they should make ME4 into a singular story, not a trilogy. That way things probably wont go wrong again :)

bootycandy1971d ago

Judging by the huge overhaul, it looks like its gonna be a long time before the next ME, imagine the work going into a game like that....where do you even start?

nassour1971d ago

I'm happy that they're switching engines

djslimzz1971d ago

Step by step...

I'm looking forward to see how Frostbite 2 will make such an impact on the series!

AngelicIceDiamond1971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

O M G you guys cant even wait a full year after ME3, take a vacation a break go to Hawaii. This gen devs announced there games way, way, WAY to early.

ChampOfChamps1971d ago

Just like the movies, they want to start building up hype... can't blame them!

XxWalksOfShamexX1971d ago

All they really revealed is the engine, it will be running on. They're still determining if it's going to be a sequel or prequel. They aren't even in the early development stages, so its not like they aren't taking a break now.

KMCROC1971d ago

Love the idea of switching engines,but it will be the Same tedious back & forth make friends ,save a son ,save a race , save the universe, find something thought to be lost. Just not with Shepard ,guess the Trilogy pack will be my last buy of anything Mass Effect. i will forgo & pass on this game or any that follow.

lashes2ashes1971d ago

Haha you don't play a lot of RPG's do you? You just summed up all of them lol. That's one of the few things mass effect still had that was from RPG style gameplay. I'm all for better side quests but if they change it any more it will be a third person shooter.

KMCROC541971d ago

Not saying the RPG game-play are lame, it just sounds lame to have to do this all over again within the same timeline of this ME saga, but without the protagonist we played it with. could see this if maybe it took place say 2 -5 centuries later, but to do it in this time line seems dumb.(JMO)
