Eurogamer Portugal published the first two images from Mass Effect 2. Enjoy!
Green and water. Cool
It looks like an Uncharted: DF screen
"First two images" made me think screenshots, but in fact they are merely concept art. Neither of them were surprising in what they showed in any case. Oh well.
Concept art not screenshots. At least we get a tidbit of something from the awesome ME universe. heh
that was beautiful art work
I agree. Not more than two minutes ago have I logged off my PS3 from playing (i.e, trophy whoring) Uncharted, and seeing the above screenshot compelled me to think of Naughty Dog's game.
It's just concept art. Wish they had some real screens.
Loving the art..the scale seems to be a lot bigger this time..really cool and epic
Impressive? No. It is only art work.
Duhhhh .... I know it's art work... but i like it.
youre implying that artwork isn't impressive?
Why can't artwork be impressive. It's basically how they hope the actual game will look, and if it's anything close to this, it will be amazing. I'm a huge fan of concept art.
Yes I am implying that too. They have done much more impressive art than those shots. So have a great many other developers. Some of the artwork for the HALO series has been amazing. These two shots however, are not.
Morgan, if this was a ps3 exclusive game, im sure yould think those shots were the best thing since sliced bread.
These are not screens.
But I like the 'star wars' feeling they are going for. It looks really cool.
To me Mass Effect is what Star Wars universe should've become, since it's actually for grown-ups.
Artwork. Lookin good, yet still artwork.
Can't wait. Hand down one of the best games i've ever played. I just hope they improved the inventory system...
hell yeah...one awful inventory system. also adding weapon attachments was a hassle. still, it is the best 360 game this gen so far.
Mass Effect is one of the best game on 360 not the best for sure.
That be concept art and I must say, that sfirst picture is doing a pretty good impersonation of Uncharted's iconic U-Boat/waterfall scene.
ah yes god forbid somebody put greenery and water next to each other, how dare they copy such a revolutionary concept
How dare they, indeed! I liked the atmosphere in Uncharted. Maybe some of that will be present during this part of ME2. I love jungle levels in games. The Halo 3 one kind of annoyed me, though.(I think I played it one too many times)
Damn! I really want this game to be on ps3 too! Please make it happen!
but they look good. I just wish EA would confirm what platforms this game will be on, I own a PS3 but have to share the 360 unfortunately.
Yeah, the concept art of games always look great... Now I'll probably will get some disagrees without any reasons...
Another great game to add to my 360 library
the disagrees LBJ 4 MVP
What we all want to know: Will there be a PS3 version day and date with the 360 one?
I would hope that it never sees the light of day on ps3 , seeing as that would delay the game for about 6 months
@robs It depends. bioware has a PS3 team working on Dragon Age right now.Either way if you want ME 2 I recommend the PC version for that superior framerate and interface or the 360 version for a confirmed release with achievements.The PS3 version is "wait-and-see"
Considering the fact that the 1st one was published by Microsoft... and it was already established that it was an trilogy way before the bioware was purchased. So, there are more chances it will NOT come to the PS3. It would be stupid to think that deals and arrangements are burn and destroyed when a company is sold to another company.. when in reality any deal made by bioware and Microsoft stands.. no matter what EA does... Unless of course EA is willing to pay a ton of money to surrender the rights to the deals they made... in order to get Microsoft to spend so much money publishing Mass Effect.
"Knowing how unreal engine 3 works out on ps3 I would hope that it never sees the light of day on ps3, seeing as that would delay the game for about 6 months" With the way Microsoft had to pay for Final Fantasy XIII, its porting over to the Xbox 360 has delayed FFXIII from release for about 8 months. Mass Effect 2s' release on the PS3 could not be any worse then that.
Considering that the 360 has no games in 2009, I hope it stays as 360 exclusive just to please its fanbase.
I 100% agree with you. 2009 is looking to be very crowded this year for the PS3, but if ME2 does come out as multiplatform (360, PS3) then I'll for sure buy it for my console of choice. EA are cash whores so there's no reason to think that the franchise will stay exclusive...but we'll wait and see.
Ah, just watch the Bonus disc with the new Platinum Edition of ME. They basically say it's a trilogy and that its all about building your character from the first one. MS owns the publishing rights to ME1(no EA logo anywhere on the Platinum Edition) so unless MS publishes it on the PS3 it ain't gonna happen. Hopefully MS locks this up tight so there are no doubts. PS3 owners want it just so they can say "we have an exclusive" and then they will sh*t all over it.
omfg i cant wait til they show some footage of this game, and i have a feeling MS2 is going to become the best rpj of this generation
What game and genre are you talking about?
I'm sure he meant ME2. Give him a break. And I'm sure if the game is not best RPG it will come really close.
uppss i mean ME2 lol
Let me be the first to predict this game to be voted as Best RPG for whatever year it gets released.
sorry lol i i was first
That's what happens when I can't get on N4G.com until after work.
unchartaed drake effect. I mean that it looks so odd for being mass effect 2.
ooo. pretty, even though it is only artwork
But it looks like it got a huge influence with tomb raider similar to uncharted. Uncharted drake fortune isn't unique. Everyone knows that. I'm just saying the artwork looks odd for mass effect 2.
I didn't say ripping off. I quite like it, looks like a homage. If the concept art looks like that, what will the game? It appears developers seem to be able to ironically make the Unreal Engine look better than what Epic does.
It's bc in uncharted there's a Boat/waterfall scene and it looks a lot like that artwork.
I've seen too many Uncharted comparisons from the fanboys. Enough is enough. Mass Effect destroys Uncharted storywise. Nuf said.
that one picture kind of reminds me of Uncharted, but I seriously doubt it is in any way related. Why can't it be an awesome pic without looking like something else? The second one is totally based on Star Wars by the way...
Cannot freakin wait!
Lame. If they were gonna be concept shots, then call them concept shots in the description.
someone doesn't know what ARTWORK/CONCEPT ART means...
So, err, didn't bother mentioning that it's concept art? Kind of an important detail.
Cool art, but I really hope the game has more variety this time around. The writing was great in the last game and the story was very interesting, the combat was pretty fun and the graphics were good (despite the long load times and the texture pop-in). But the two dozen or so planets available were mostly very cookie-cutter with no personality or originality between them. All of the base interiors and cave interiors were literally identical to one another except on the 3 main story planets. I started to get really sick of side-questing because the planets were all so generic, boring, lifeless, and culture-less. The main story was very good, but it needs to have a bit better pacing and it needs to have more interesting side-quests or a longer main quest (I finished the original 100% in about 35 hours, but the main quest only took about 12!) All in all, I'm pretty darn excited for Mass Effect 2, but they've got some improvements they should make.
Well the announcement of a Mass Effect trilogy was during the time that a 2nd party deal between Microsoft and bioware. The EA-bioware deal however changed evrything. Microsoft only published the first Mass Effect but have not made a deal to publish the other two.The IP now belongs to EA not bioware or Microsoft.If Microsoft wants it exclusively they would have to pay EA.However EA recently reported a profit loss and needs to recuperate those costs and EA Has never attempted exclusivity since the beginning of their founding except to the Wii.Not to mention that if MS wanted to keep on it on PC or 360,they would need to pay a large amount to a wealthy publisher like EA which sounds crazy. If MS wants to keep ME2 on their system,they would have to pay 100 million dollars to EA. Now the question left is "What about Mass Effect 3?" Is Microsoft willing to pay the 2nd biggest publisher for an exclusive? We'll see
Where ever do you get those numbers? lol.
MS just published? Just a correction MS OWNS the publishing rights to ME1. They did not get sold to EA and while the IP might belong to whorewear or err EA they don't have the rights to ME1. Just look at the platinum edition that was just released. There are no EA logos on it at all. MS owns it thankfully so it can't be whored out by whorewear. =)
I'm currently playing through Mass Effect and I can't get enough of it! Knowing theres a sequel to look forward that is looking impressive from the first screens fills me with glee!:D
i bet anyone that ME2 will come to the ps3 and if it dosnt then by god i will eat my own c0ck.. deal anyone?
Ewww its just a game.Get over it
Have fun choking on d!ck.
You obviously don't make good decisions.
that doesn't really mean much considering you do that daily anyways :P
i don't care what this comes out on i'm getting it for the 360 y because if u have the 1st one you're stats and equipment get carried across to the 2nd one!
It might come to the PS3 or it might not. It all depends on whether Microsoft has worked out a deal with EA or not. Great game though, and it would be great if more people could get to experience it.
I don't think MS is in any position to pay tons of money for exclusives right now. With the economy the way it is I think MS will let a lot of exclusives become multiplatform as they finally realize that there's no stopping the PS3, no matter how much more expensive it is. Sony gaming brand recognition and loyalty is too insane for MS to simply put all it's muscle behind their console...they are going to realize that using money for exclusives during economic turmoil is not acceptable when they have bigger fish to fry with the rise of Apple in the home computer market, MP3 players, and cell phone arena.
I don't know about having bigger fish to fry since I'm sure the gaming division gets some $ regardless and they prob have some freedom with how it's spent. however, I don't see how ME2 &/or ME3 could stay exclusive with all that's been said in the above comments. so maybe if MS is smart they should try and at least get some sony $ for ME1... what do u think??
