GS:BioWare executive producer Casey Hudson says next game in series will offer new ideas; feature film with Legendary remains in production.
It will be in first person view , mark my words people.
it will be the first one I don't finish or maybe even start then
It will come with deodorant and a bar of soap.
Please let the mass effect franchise die. At least for the next 2 years... We all had enough milk from that cow... EA should invest that money to A) make the dragon age franchise playable and fun again. B) make the Dead Space franchise playable, scary and fun again. C) make a new IP.
The next Mass Effect game will be a complete non-factor in my gaming life. Despite how cold the ME2 demo left me, I went ahead and bought the trilogy based on all the accolades. ME1's story kept me going through the game, though the shooting gameplay was so stale I couldn't stand to play for long periods of time. ME2 bored me so much I traded the game in before finishing it. ME is just another series whose popularity I'll never understand.
I want it to be MMO styled. Or Co-op of sorts. I dunno I really enjoyed the game despite the ending. No matter what ME will be put through the EA machine and cripple it. Luckily all the crap EA's doing is optional and won't be affecting me.
Watch Destiny and see how EA buckles to follow it in 2014 with Mass Effect 4. I am a little scared we will see this AI child come back and say you still suck, game over, good bye in Mass Effect 6 as he nukes your world. I have never felt more trolled by a developer than watching that unfold in Mass Effect 3 for the first time. I don't expect full MMO of any kind in Mass Effect 4 or we will be waiting until 2018 or so to see it arrive, but if Bungie sets a new bar someone is going to try to compete with them.
Regarding: "Luckily all the crap EA's doing is optional and won't be affecting me." Gamers are foolish to believe this, but I suppose back in the days of horse armor there were also gamers who said "luckily horse armor is optional and it won't be affecting me". Now we pay full price for partial games and pay extra for the DLC to complete the experience, because the only other choice is to stop playing the games we love.
A Mass Effect MMO would be the only option that would make me consider buying another ME.
The only thing "fresh and new" is going to be the big dookie EA/BioWare take on its customers.
It will be micro-transactions and day one dlc.
If that happens i will personally make a deal with Reapers um i mean "fictional" Reapers *rolls eyes* and bring their wrath on EA/Bioware :] Long live RPG Mass Effect !!!
IF it's FPS, then I might get it.
should have a new enemy besides the reapers
Its gonna be more dudebro.
Dude, I hope not, bro.
Nah EA will innovate by creating the first brodude game instead.
R.I.P MassEffect you where great while you lasted.
Why they aren't releasing the game annually (every 2 years) and each game has improved on the last. They include lots of content and a pretty decent multiplayer in mass effect 3 which I reluctantly tried because it tied into the single player, and it wasn't bad. I'm sure the next mass effect will probably be set further into the future and the possibility's are endless.
You have a great universe to explore, Mass Effect was only one part of it.
first person shooter...with microtransaction weapon skins. Get the exclusive Bacon Weapon skin by buying specially marked bags of doritos
You forgot about the Triple XP bonus codes from bottle caps of Mountain Dew.
Bioware will never do a triple xp or triple credits event. They were asked time and time again to do this for ME3 MP and they simply won't do it, messes with their micro transactions. They just quit on ME3 after a dlc was released 3 weeks ago, I'm salty at Bioware/EA for this.
You will get to play as harbinger?
I was only kidding. :)
I'M ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL over this comment and I KNOW YOU FEEL THIS
I don't care anymore, Eaware.
Do they mean that it will be an action-RPG like the first? Or a full shooter?
Unless they can prove us wrong with Dragon Age 3, Bioware stopped making RPG's sometime during the development of Mass Effect 2. DA2 and ME3 certainly weren't rpgs and mass effect 2 only had half the rpg in it that me1 had. Bioware is long dead.
BioWare - I'm sorry - but Mass Effect has totally lost its flair. You released a superb first game - you built an interesting world and outstanding characters. Arguably - some people would say that the second game was even better. But then something happened...and I'm not talking about Mass Effect 3 even. EA - as bureaucratic as they are - thought: "Hey! Mass Effect could bring us so much more money and we can promise our shareholders so much more income!" So what happened? Something that happens far to often in this industry: The franchise got neglected in favor of making the game more appealing for a wider audience. This may work with a franchise such as Uncharted or Halo - but Mass Effect has always been its own beast - and that is largely due to the fact that it has always been a single player experience. One that doesn't end with the first game - but that continues with the second and third game. So: DLC was developed, multiplayer was introduced, the second and third game were put on PS3 - completely ignoring the first game - and even an "Action" mode was introduced in Mass Effect 3 - which pretty much takes away the entire immersive experience from the game. I don't have to mention the ending. Then EA released Origin, Game 1+2 were on Steam, Game 3 was not... BioWare pretty much seized their communication with their fans on their "social" network. BioWare used to be famous for the relationship they had with their player base. And instead of coming forward and talking with the players - we got nothing but EA damage control. BioWare argues that they don't visit the forums because of all the hate. Well - you don't ignore your girlfriend just because she's mad at you. So yea - lots has happened with Mass Effect and I'm not interested any longer.
I loved Mass Effect 1 to death, and when Bioware went forward to make Mass Effect 2, they said they would fix the little problems. Mainly, my original complaint about ME1 was that you would loot FAR to many "Avenger 'x'" and the like. In ME2 they pretty much got rid of that problem because they gutted the loot system altogether. In ME1, I loved the augment and shield mod system, and again in ME2, that was pretty much gone. In fact, when I saw what ME3 became (gameplay wise) I skipped the game altogether. It's become too focused on appeasing the "CoD generation" and not the gamers that supported the original.
i think they mean with characters and planets garrus will be miss
What is with all the Mass Effect hate? The trilogy was amazing and I would love for the Mass Effect Universe to continue. Sure, I don't want any returning characters, but a whole new story and enemy would be great. Bioware is great and even though a lot of people hate EA, Bioware still delivers great games.
"What is with all the Mass Effect hate?" I respect your opinion and won't debate you on what you think of BioWare. But, do you really have to ask that? That horse has been beaten to the sub-atomic level at this point.
