it's a prequel of the Mass Effect based on Earth.
But i would much prefer a sequel.
After seeing this has convinced me its a prequel but I agree with you a sequel would be better
If it is ME, that's exactly what it will be, IMHO. Said that with the first news of it today.
Being that when you first play the game it ask you some question about your pass - like you were an orphan and joind the army or you were a well know person and dont take BS from any one.
That would be cool, considering how you chose your past in the first game, this one will let you actually play it out. However the whole gritty post-apocalyptic feel just doesnt seem visually sound for Mass Effect. Again, however, this could be the war Shepard was fighting in before he was hired as a Spectre.
I don't think the prequel will involve Shephard. The looks of this video is that it will be set at least decades, if not at least a century, before Shephard was born.
Color me skeptical, I just don't see bioware taking on another project at this time. Isn't only their Montreal studio open at this time? You would think that it would either be a completely new IP (let's say Shattered Steel) or ME3 due to the amount of projects already on Bioware's plate. Either way, I'll probably end up buying it.
Good analysis. Seems correct.
Bioware is a pretty big company, especially now that they are partnered with EA, I think they are able to create new IPs and not have to rely on just two. I hope this rumor is not true because we still have to finish the current storyline of Mass Effect. It doesn't really make sense to announce a prequel to a trilogy, before the third is even announced.
Don't mind!! Just like uncharted I rather see an uncharted 2.5 before 3.. These trilogies come & go to fast for my taste. I would miss mass effect if the last one came out now!!
First contact wars perhaps?
I'm glad the author posted the Big Ben screens. It popped into my head as I freeze-framed the vid earlier, but I thought my eyes must be deceiving me.
wow please be true!! I bet they will be making this at the same time as ME3, Bioware is a huge company employing 4--/500 people Any time more in Mass Effects universe is worth it! I wanna see how the mass relays were discovered on Mars, see the first contact war, the fights with Batarian slavers etc etc
This would be definitly interesting! A very good way to win more fans on the PS3 side
...what if you molded Shepard differently from Mass Effect 1 & 2? Would it create some sort of time paradox within your game saves?
Hmm it could be mass effect 3 and that the reapers attacked it. I dont see why they would make a prequel, nothing really significant happened there
