Strategy Informer doesn't know what this new game will be yet, but stay tuned to find out more soon.
Should be sweet.
Doesn't look like it's going to be ME 3 though, looks like a military shooter to me. I for one want it to be a new IP, it's high time we got a play a exciting new futuristic military shooter.
ME3 is still a possibility, happy if it’s a new IP. It’s a win x win either way in my book.
Just saw the teaser trailer, it’s a new IP
Would have prefered a Jade Empire kind of game.
When I read "Mass Effect 3" I literally screamed like a little girl. Love Bioware, everything they do is godlike. And ME3 isn't that far off either, that sniper is very Mass Effect-y. Too bad that's not Shepard :'(.
Why can't it be Shepard ?
Because the real Shepard is female.
Shepard can be both male and female depending on player's choice, but in "every" promotional item, Bioware always uses the male version. Even in the games, default version is a male soldier named John.
I know. I was just teasing because the standard male Shepard is just another generic looking stereotype we've seen a million times. Jennifer Hale's voice acting turns female Shepard into a believable and interesting *commander* whereas male Shepard is a shallow one-dimensional cliche.
That picture's much bigger than I was expecting. If only they bothered to put textures that detailed into the PC versions of their games. The textures in ME2 (PC) would pass for medium res at best. Anyway, it's a Bioware game so I'm expecting some RPG elements and decision making.
Maybe they bought the Alpha Protocol IP and will do it some justice? Once can hope since the concept is right up their alley.
Doesn't look RPG'ish enough. What about Jade Empire, Bioware? What happened to it? :(
Whatever it maybe, no doubt it will be great. Bioware cant seem to do any wrong.
Dumbing down RPGs IS doing something wrong. That aside, this looks like a generic shooter. Oh dear.
Well I'm no die hard RPG player, but ME1 and 2 are spectacular games, some of the best this gen. So if "dumbing down" means making some of the best games out there, then yeah. Sorry, I didnt realise you were one of those people who can catagorise and sum up an entire project from one image.
I don't consider them blending RPG with other elements more as a dumbing down of it, just an attempt to make it accessible to a wider audience. Dumbing down the RPG would have been sticking to traditional RPG elements only and then implementing them poorly. DA:O, IMHO, has proven that they're more than capable making quality RPG titles.
In my opinion, Dragon Age was a mistake of a game. Everything in it was a downgraded version of ME2.
I couldn't disagree more with you. ME1>DA:O>>>>> ;ME2
Dragon Age came out a year before ME2. How is it a downgrade? Dragon Age was also vastly superior to Mass Effect 2. Leagues ahead of it.
Dragon Age, especially the PC version, is superior to Mass Effect overall.
Doesn't look like ME3, could be a new IP.
Yes it is new IP. Check Kotaku and Geoff on Twitter
Neither Kotaku nor Geoff Keighley didn't say anything about it being a new IP. IMO it's Mass Effect 3 or maybe KOTOR 3. I wouldn't bet on KOTOR 3 too much though since an MMO from Bioware is going to be released in 2011.
It's far too dirty looking to be a Mass Effect game and this is CG whereas all the images they released for ME games were using the in-game engine.
Love Bioware, they make brilliant games. I just hope this isn't another modern war FPS shooter. His armor does look futuristic though. New IPs from great developers are always welcome.
Even if it is "another" modern war first person shooter "shooter(?)", with Bioware at the helm, it will be unlike any other.
Nice catch, FPS***
Crysis 3 i keed i keed. Who knows maybe the next medal of honor:p Cant you people take a joke:(
They sure know their western audience!
Maybe he is a sensitive space marine like dom. MARIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
That's a type of sensitivity that I'm unfamiliar with.
That was damn funny dom killed his bottom bitch.
The gun looks consistent with the style of the Sniper Rifle from Mass Effect. Granted, it doesn't look exactly the same but it has the same features, just in different proportions and style. They did a change in art direction for Dragon Age, I don't think it's implausible for them to do the same for Mass Effect.
Why cant it be a new IP?
It very well could be a new IP, a new IP would be most welcome, provided it isn't tired or cliche. I'm just saying, that gun looks an awful lot like the Sniper Rifle from ME.
Looks like a slightly older Shepard. http://www.comicbookmovie.c... The dirt and the angle just make him harder to recognize. The sniper rifle and armor look consistent with the ME universe.
Maybe its a sniper soldier from KOTOR 3??? =D One can dream.... :(
I called it! Told you guys, this is BioWare's FPS project we heard about a while ago.
FPS? :( Surely hope is not.
New IP or not, I'm sure it's going to be one hell of a game.
This could be shepard....but I don't think that Mass Effects needs a new design...nothing wrong with the old one Does look like it could be a Mass Effect weapon though http://masseffect.wikia.com... Maybe it's Kaiden on the picture?
IMO I don't think it's Mass Effect 3. What I see is a chain link fence behind him. Maybe a kinda not too distnt future shooter kinda thing, IDK just guessing.
It better be another 50+ hour epic, bioware is my favorite western-rpg developers
Mass Effect was 20 hours at best, bro.
ME2 is quite longer than that, especially with the DLC.
Dragon Age was easily 100+, bro.
Depends how you play. if you rush through it and don't play the side missions, then sure you can do it in 20 hours or less. Not really a good way to play the game IMO. Better to play the whole game and experience it all IMO.
Same here. But I miss the Baldur's Gate games. I'd love for an old school game like BG to be released today =)
i don't think it is mass effect 3. if you look at the video glimpse on kotaku it says " from the creators of mass effect and dragon age comes their NEXT big game " I have it submitted btw.
There's no way to know what it is from that one image. However, my interest has been grasped.
just another generic shooter ... *sigh*
you got all that from a single picture -_-
but for Christ's sake... a lot of people say that is mass effect related... Its Not. it's A NEW IP...
New IP? Like..."Effect of Duty: Modern Mass"?
more like Mass of Dragons: Modern Age
Or Modern Age: Mass of Dragons
lol @ above posts
If anyone recalls... http://www.joystiq.com/2010...
i think that article relates to the ps3 version of mass effect 2
What ever it is, I know it will be good.
I bet (hope) it's something set in the ME universe but not involving the trilogy with Shepard. Maybe a prequel, something from The First Contact War with the Turians.
Bald guy with gun in grey suit. SOOOOO original. Can't wait. /sarcasm
Oh joy, another war shooter. Way to jump on that bandwagon, Bioware.
it's Shattered Steel 2
