Mass Effect 4: Will the Reapers Return?

Will the reapers return in Mass Effect 4? I would be more than glad to say no, they won’t come back, but unfortunately, there is a huge chance that these ancient aliens will be back regardless the timeline of the upcoming story.

Maybe they will be commanded by Shepard.....

BioWare said Shepard won't return so it's unlike that it will happen.

hard to think the decisions wont matter when you merge organics with synthetics....

Yeah 100 percent human. Shepard might be gone but maybe. A reaper shepard or some other type of hybrid or maybe a virtual ai shepard might still exist in control atleast of a portion of that force probably with some bs about bringing the universe together or something weren't the relays destroyed maybe he sets them again withou a dark motive like the original reapers

They said Shepard wont be main character but they never said Shepard wont be in the game at some time maybe as special mission or something...

I wonder If Bioware will have 3 diffrent openings following Control, destruction, or Synthesis endings. Or maybe EA will help them further destroy the series by adding more multiplayer and forcing them to release an unfinished product that Freezes all the time.

Senyra1460d ago

They'll probably set it in a far future, so these decisions won't matter anymore.

I'm dying for another Mass Effect!

OrangePowerz1461d ago

They could set it in the past.

brich2331460d ago

Thier wouldnt be any point to set the story in the past after what happened at the end of Mass effect 3.

OrangePowerz1460d ago

Why? Could be set in a time when the reapers attacked.

We knew what happened in FF7 and Crisis Core was still an excellent game although we all knew how it will end.

Senyra1460d ago

Yes, no one knows if it will be a prequel or sequel so far :P I hope it's a sequel tho.

OrangePowerz1460d ago

It could be either. Mass Effect has a huge backstory that hasn`t been explored much like the war between the Humans and Turians at the first contact and so on or all the previous civilizations that got whipped out.

In prequels we do know how it ends, but I think they could still make a great prequel using the rich backstory they made for the universe. My favorite example is Crisis Core because that game pulled of a great prequel using all the rich backstory they only hinted at previously.

Of course it could go wrong as well because we have a rough undertsanting how it would end so it`s easy to make a "bad" prequel. On the other hand if it`s a sequel without Shepard it`s equally easy to make a "bad" sequel since everybody is very attached to the characters and a sequel without the iconic characters might work less good than a prequel without the iconic characters.

Either way I`m looking forward to a new Mass Effect and hopefully they go more back to RPG instead of moving further towards a shooter game.

I'm not even sure how they will pull off a sequel but good lord please don't be a prequel. Hopefully they just do some inevitable retcons and set the story after the trilogy.

Mass effect does have a pretty rich universe, but not enough to live up to the trilogy. The turian-human contact war would undoubtedly be lame, and I certainly don't want to play as some other race in some previous cycle. Even a parallel story taking place during the trilogy would probably not work well.

Mass effect is an amazing franchise and I love it but I really hope they keep going forward with the narrative and not backwards. I would much rather get retcons than a prequel, and just hope they don't write themselves into a corner again.

krazykombatant1460d ago

Casey Hudson is a shameless prick and BioWare back themselves into a corner with their shitty writing. Not gonna buy another piece of garbage game from them.

But thats just liko my opinion so take it as you will.

I just want a whole new experience. Hopefully showing off more whatever the main city would be. Bring back the RPG elements of the first one.
