A Trailer of the Next Mass Effect is Ready, Might be at E3; Won’t be Xbox One Exclusive – Rumor

BioWare managed to keep the next Mass Effect pretty much under wraps, even if industry insider Shinobi602 did give us a few hints about it, including the working title “contact,” that apparently isn’t final.

Today he mentioned on Twitter that the game might actually make an appearance at E3, because a trailer has been ready for a little while already. (Mass Effect 4, PS4, Xbox One)

It wouldn't make logical sense for EA to limit a franchise with fans across multi platforms to one machine
Abriael  +   548d ago
Especially after they pulled out of exclusives first.
Anthotis  +   548d ago
It would be a bad business move to limit a game to an under performing and less popular platform.

Mass Effect 1 was the 6th best last gen game, but not at all hyped for a new Mass Effect. Give me a new IP please.

Besides all the other ME's are multiplat why would this be?

Good point however Mass Effect was originally only on Xbox. Mass Effect 3 came out on PS3 before Mass Effect 1
christocolus  +   548d ago

Angelic is right. All entries in the series are now multiplat so I don't see part 4 being exclusive.

However,the first masseffect was late to ps3 cos ea had to reach an agreement with ms(since they owned the rights to the first one)before they could bring it to ps.if you actually look back you would see both companies actually have a very good business relationship. Ms actually killed off their sports line up(xsn sports) immediately ea came onboard.

EA must be dumbest company ever to make another exclusive deal with MS.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   548d ago
The game has never been the same since the first one. They lost me after that even though I played 2 and 3 they just didn't have the magic the first game did. I wonder what the development difference between the first and the sequels was? Hrm.
My_Outer_Heaven  +   548d ago
I enjoyed the second and third one but I missed the planetary exploration and combat driving with the Mako.
rivencleft  +   548d ago
Planetary Exploration was my favorite thing about Mass Effect, loved it in the first game and I do hope they bring it back, loved ME 2 and 3 but I loved being able to drive around a planet then go loot an outpost instead of just mining them for minerals maybe bring it back so where you can still mine for minerals but you have to explore the planet to find those minerals for your ship hovering in orbit to mine, or mine yourself while you're down there and send it back up to your ship.

I prefer ME 2 over 1. The gameplay in first ME is frankly horrendous with horrible gunplay. The second one had the best mix of action and RPG for me and everything was more polished technically with better gameplay.
-Foxtrot  +   548d ago
I don't know I kind of liked the gunplay in Mass didn't feel as generic

Thermal clips just made it seem like another shooter.

Cool down weapons were awesome, added strategy to battles, made you reply on your skills/biotics and even your team mates aswell. By the third game you could just go solo, guns blazing into battle.
Ghost_Nappa  +   548d ago
Don't forget that it couldn't hold a stable 30fps to save its life.
maniacmayhem  +   548d ago
I agree with Orange.

I had the first Mass Effect and held on to it for the longest without playing it. Then part 2 came out so I decided to give the game a go. I went through part 1 first and thought it was a great game but when I immediately put on part 2 it was like night and day as everything from combat, controls, menus was improved 10+.

Part 3, in my opinion was a step down as every decision from part 2 didn't really matter. Especially the arachnid part.

I am really hoping part 4 is awesome and I hope Shepard is apart of it in some way.
OrangePowerz  +   548d ago

When was the last time you played ME1? I wanted to replay it after 2 and 3 and it was painful. The issue isn't with the ammo or overheating weapons, but rather with the aiming and shooting. In general it is also rather slowly paced. That doesn't mean that ME2 is better in every way, there are things that ME1 is doing better, but overall I feel that tge second game is much better compared to the first it's like AC1 and AC2.
thricetold  +   548d ago
ME2/3 are action movie tps cover shooters while ME was a shooting rpg, similar to that of fallout. People would lose their minds if fallout changed into a generic fps just set in the same universe.

Cool for the dude bro's but sucked for rpg fans.

Currently playing ME as we speak, got rid of my 360 a while ago and was jonesing for a good sci-fi rpg and decided to lift my boycott of EA, temporily of course as there is simply no way to get the game on ps3 but digitally.

Agreed the shooting could be tons better, but it improves as you level up if I remember correctly. In any regards its not THAT bad, just takes adjusting to like any other shooter.

I 100% agree with Foxtrot here ME1 FTW. I will never forget my specter assault rifle that I customized with cryo to where it could not overheat.

I really enjoy ME1, I have been wanting to play it for the 8th time but don't it or my 360. The gameplay IMO feels unique and it is a game I will never forget and go back to from time to time. The trilogy went a total different direction and sadly their will never be a game that delivers the same experience as it

What are you talking about that game just got better and better 3 was absolute brilliance I was glued to it absolutely loved it. ( not having a go just a friendly response)
LAWSON72  +   548d ago
I really enjoyed 3, it was not my favorite like ME1, but it improved upon customization and content, that and some of the missions were awesome with some insane action packed moments that delivered quite the cinematic experience and that MP was just epic and it is the main thing I am hyped for in the next ME.

The problem I have with it is the character development is not near as good as ME2 and even ME1 and I just have a huge problem with the ending. ME2 has soul when it comes to the Normandy and crew, while the first opened up in such an awesome sci-fi way with this discovery of an incredible universe. ME3 was to be the ending and IMO other than the wonderful destructive missions it was severely lacking in that regard

Does anyone expect the trilogy to be remastered?
Lucreto  +   548d ago
I do

I expect this E3 will be full of remasters
LAWSON72  +   548d ago
I am waiting to see hopefully if it is E3 will be the reveal. If not I will have to get the PS3 version because I am dying to play ME1. I would love a Xbone version so I can play the MP again with friends

Whatever this exclusive ends up being for the Xbox, I can't imagine that it will come from EA. I think they're still a little upset at not being to distribute TitanFall across the Xbx1/PS4. But it will be interesting to see what it ends up being for sure.
PaperMan  +   548d ago
Wasn't EA the ones who made the deal with MS to make Titanfall exclusive?

Even so I still think the new ME will be multiplat...
fonger08  +   548d ago
They did, but I don't think they forecasted how well the PS4 would come out the gate. I would bet the potential dollar difference between having released it as a multiplat would have been greater than what they recieved as a buyout for it being exclusive. Plus I think Microsoft want finance they rest of the development for TitanFall, IDK, EA is an odd company to predict.
KNWS  +   548d ago
I don't know why but i think Star Wars Battlefront is the timed exclusive for Microsoft

Its a megation if true. I expect it to be an EA title whatever it is though, might be wrong though?

I'd rather take Shenmue HD and 3 as the megaton exclusive
ArbitorChief  +   548d ago
Series went to crap when EA took over, was best when Microsoft published it, Mass Effect 1 was the best.
Mr-Dude  +   548d ago
Weird... what has publishing to do with development? Bioware made the games.... not MS

weird comment
AceBlazer13  +   548d ago
Even more weird he got agrees
Ghost_Nappa  +   548d ago
Cool. I think its great that people with a ps4 wont have to wait years to play mass effect like on ps3.
HollywoodLA  +   548d ago
Considering the xbox one is trailing the PS4 by millions and millions of units -- I wouldn't think the publisher would allow this third-party exclusivity to exist this gen.

It's not like xbox is going to outsell the PS4 any time soon.
jon200547  +   548d ago
mass effect 4 or whatever they are calling it
I dont know what to think right now about it to me its not going to be the same without shepard and the gang i hope the others that are still alive will be in it even though shepard will not but if not either way i am not going to be happy about it
sungin  +   548d ago
hope the pc version is optimized and enhanced than consoles.
F4sterTh4nFTL  +   548d ago
Mass Effect 4 is not going to be Xbox One Exclusive. It just won't. Next Question.
Father__Merrin  +   548d ago
ryse graphics will still be better than mass effect graphics, ryse can never be beaten
thinktwice  +   548d ago
Don't have high hopes for this but iam curious to see how things come along and how it will play out!
Djinn  +   548d ago
I just hope it's as good as ME3. That game was amazing. The first ME was garbage.
spartanlemur  +   548d ago
Fingers crossed for a sequel!

The mysterious recontact will be so much more fun than first contact, of which we already know a great deal (and the ending of course will still leave us waiting for some form of resolution).
RichardKing  +   548d ago
Please don't be a prequel.
BlakHavoc  +   548d ago
O god please show it! Mass Effect may have been my favorite franchise all last gen, I just have a thing for Sci-fi RPG's.
Jrmy84  +   547d ago
I hope is isn't exclusive, don't want to buy a XboxOne just yet.
