Mass Effect 4: Why Should It Be a Sequel

For the author a sequel seems the optimal option for Mass Effect 4 as it will not only attend to players’ demands, as it will give continuity to a fantastic world, full of exhilarating content and never-ending surprises. (Mass Effect 4, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

That was some read and it would blow some expectations if it is indeed a sequel.

It sure would but they will probably make a prequel though, i'll have to write about it in another article.

What I would like to see. Starts out a prequel and ends up a sequel. It could be used to "fix" the ME3 ending.

It would be like a Star Trek Voyager where a ship gets stuck in another Galaxy with no way to return home.

Takes place during the period Shepard was stuck on Earth before ME3. The council selects an elite group of soldiers from all the main races in council space. Turian, Quarian, Krogan, Salerian, Asari, Volus and Human. It would be like the multiplayer where you select a race and they become this new shepard.

They are on a mission to get information on the Reapers from the Omega Relay. All the upgrades from the Normandy have been shared with the council to create the ship. Something happens and they are sent to another Galaxy.

If it is a new trilogy I would set it like

4. New Galaxy and prevent a war or stop a war.
5. Build upgrades to get back home and possible
6. The choice of ME3 ending where something has gone wrong and have to put it right.

With a prequel there will narrative constraints and a lot rehashing, with a sequel they can go crazy. I hope the next game is not about saving the galaxy but is on a much smaller scale.

I agree narrative constraints will be a problem with a sequel. The 3 choices will cause problems.

It will anger fans further if they made one choice canon.

Yes, it would be much hard to create but also much more exciting to play and it would create a strong connection with the previous games.

Let's be honest "Current" Bioware has no problem winging it when it comes to narrative. If the ending to ME3 proves anything its that they have no problem slapping together a bunch of contrivances when they can't think of anything.

So, really they could do anything they want. Whether it makes any sense is another issue.

I would like to see the next Mass Effect game get back to more exploration elements, like what was presented in the first game of the series. I enjoyed ME1, 2, and 3, but with ME4 I want to explore the Milky Way galaxy, discovering new races/species of beings, and kicking their a!# if they get out of line. Or perhaps an intergalactic war between beings in our closest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy. I really hope it's not a prequel. I want all new characters in all new circumstances. The characters from this trilogy were great, but it's time to move on from Shepard's crew and friends and give us the proper beginning to a new ME trilogy.
