Mass Effect 4 gets new environments while a cinematic is being prepared

Mass Effect 4 team starts work on a new cinematic, and the game gets some new amazing environments! (Mass Effect, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Yeah but will Bioware keep their promises this time, they didn't for Mass Effect 3, they didn't for Dragon Age 2, and DA3 is looking like they are trying hard to hide the promises they aren't keeping. Well see what they promise when they officially announce the game and show gameplay.

While I agree with most of your comments about DA2 and ME3 not living up to expectations because of unfulfilled promises, I cant help but to disagree in regard to the new iteration. Dragon Age Inquisition looks absolutely fantastic. It looks like Bioware learnt from their mistakes with DA2, and is poised to deliver a game that dare I say may match the "origin"al....Get it ;)

Nice stuff. If bioware screws this game up like they did mass effect 3 it will be their downfall
TrueJerseyDevil  +   480d ago
Mass Effect 3 was actually a decent turn around from the screw up that was Mass Effect 2 in my opinion. hope 4 is good
There was absolutely nothing wrong with ME3 and I'm so sick of all the whining about the ending. Bioware gave us the greatest space opera science fiction trilogy ever and all people want to do is cry about the ending. It is the journey that was important not the destination. The people who made death threats to the developers should be ashamed of themselves.

Non linear exploration on moons and planets please! It'd be cool if they have sections like at the beginning of Star Trek Into Darkness, in which you can come across primal races and help find a way to save them from an impending doom. I miss coming across random space stations on barren rocks with unusual side missions, it'd be nice to have more of those with elaborate plots that might lead you across the galaxy.

Speaking of Star Trek, I wouldn't mind having the skydive into the planet atmosphere from a ship type scene to play in the game.

Sort of like this, but star trek style in Mass Effect.

CyrusLemont  +   480d ago
Omfg, yes! That's such a sick idea.

so the game is good but the ending isn't
xXxSeTTriPxXx  +   480d ago
The game was a masterpiece but dat ending smh.

Although ME1 felt like an open (ish) game, it was also a chore. I'm the kind of gamer who will search every last rock on every last planet. So I've no idea of the number of hours I poured into it. ME2 had a better balance. ME3 did feel like an attempt to grab hold of non-rpg gamers, but it was by no means crap.

I hope they keep the great balance of 2 but with the cinematics of 3. Tall order.

ME2 story and antagonist were total rubbish. It was all one giant side mission all of it to go fight the terminator....

I refuse to see how you consider ME1 "openish" when ME2 was all corridors.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   480d ago
You are wrong krazy..........it had probes too....XD
Mister_Dawg  +   480d ago
Refuse all you like dude. I don't give a rats ass.
staticdash22  +   480d ago
I hope they can rejuvenate the franchise with this one. Although, ME3 killed the franchise IMO.

Hardly There is no bigger canvas than space itself.

Every time someone says mass effect 3 was not a great game it makes me realize how entitled new age gamers are. ME3 was amazing from beginning to end as was the multiplayer any who says the game was not amazing because of the ending is a spoiled brat and needs to get over it.
aliengmr  +   480d ago
So if having an opinion makes one "entitled", what does that make you?

You are "entitled" to your opinion, but that really doesn't make the writing "amazing" by any standards of the actual medium. In fact, it was good subplots linked together by a horrible, last minute plot.

Yes, the MP was surprisingly good and the subplots were well written, but the entire main plot was an absolute mess. Well below the standards Bioware set themselves.

If you liked it, great, but don't start in with those same tired insults that came from EA/BioWare's staunch defenders in the media. Bad writing is bad writing and blindly defending without a critical look is worse for BioWare in the long run. They messed up and should have been called out on it.
OsirisBlack  +   480d ago
Edited to add:

Having an opinion does not make one entitled, thinking an entire game needs to be tailored to meet your specific needs and then whining about it when it does not makes one entitled.

Let me put it this way, I had never played Mass effect I or II and got III after playing III I went back and bought I and II and played all the way through both of them. It was a great game plain and simple. Would some have liked the ending to be different ..... obviously but to say the game was not absolutely amazing because you did not like the ending is like saying .... You do not like the game of thrones books because your favorite character died. There is nothing in life where every aspect will be tailored to your liking. Just facts...... As for the blindly defending part of your comment. There is no blindly defending as I was not as invested as some of the other people who had already played parts I and II all of that being said the game was great and did not deserve all of the rage it received from the gaming community. IT came across without much sense and usually boiled down to "The ending sucked this game sucks." Which was not the case.

It has nothing to do with entitled. It's about the developer following through with promises made over the years, particularly regarding important decisions and how they'd greatly effect the events later on. A great example of Bioware throwing this out the window was with the Rachni Queen in ME1. We went through so much hell in ME1 and made the choice of preserving or exterminating the last of an alien species, and what do we get in ME3...? We get to save her again if we did the first time, and a couple e-mails. lovely.

A friend who actually works for Bioware confirmed that the game was rushed by EA to make quarterly profits, and instead of properly tying all the different storylines together in the end, Casey hudson sent all the writers home and he and a few devs slapped together the ending.

So sit down, shut up, and perhaps people would listen to you if you would have not started out with insults and no knowledge of the game itself. You sound like you only played ME3, which is typical of those who actually liked the ending.

Dont get me wrong, most of the game was great. But it all went to hell as soon as you launch the raid on the illusive man's station.
OsirisBlack  +   479d ago
Played and completed all 3 thank you very much. People would listen to you if you did not issue personal insults with the flair of a 3 year old. "Sit down, Shut up?" Great intellectual material there. I know the game was rushed as are most EA games (See Battlefield 4) The one thing I hate more than whiners is internet tough guys. Seriously.
MxRBrobaFett  +   480d ago
Meh. Can't get myself excited over BiowEAr anymore.
staticdash22  +   480d ago
Never forget marauder shields....
maniacmayhem  +   480d ago
I'm excited for Mass Effect 4, it will be interesting to see where the story goes from part 3.
aLiEnViSiToR  +   480d ago
Mass Effect Series was awesome and ME4 if that is how they will name it, its going to be glorious... GLORIOUS !!!
Alex_Boro  +   480d ago
Mass Effect is already ruined. Quit the milking.
Mr-Dude  +   480d ago
I liked the trilogy, a liiiittle dissapointed about the rushed ending but I enjoyed the whole trilogy and books btw.

Let's hope ME4, has more planets, new species and those great conversations. The Citadel DLC was awesome (great party and sad goodbye) But i'm gonna miss Garrus and Wrex, and Tali and Liara... and the rest...

They need to put this franchise to bed already. It's in shark-jumping territory.
