Del-Rey Books and author Drew Karpyshyn have announced the title of the second volume in the Mass Effect series of novels: Mass Effect: Ascension. Set between the first and second game, the novel will arrive in Summer 2008.
so excited. no really..
You act like MSFT slapped you to a corner pushed you over a desk and had their way with you from the back side. lol
ohh don't worry... Sony is releasing a book based on lair too. It's titled... Lair: Flop lords.
While novel would be great, I want the sequel for the game. ME story was much more than a novel and hopefully with it's success, they get to release the complete trilgy.
I for one am excited about this. I heard the HALO novels were awesome. I haven't read any of either series yet but the Mass Effect story was vaguely familiar to an Alastair Reynolds book I once loved. Revelation Space
I am looking forward to the next novel, the first one was a good read for sci fi fans and helped to set the stage of the game. Mass Effect is definitely the most exciting new IP established this year, I cannot wait for another game from Bioware
is an amazing game
I loved the first novel and I would totally get the second.
Hmm... The first novel hyped me up for the game and this will probably do the same for the second game in the series, but I didn't think the first novel had all that great writing. It was good but nothing I'd be rushing out to buy. Still, glad to hear there will be another; I will make sure to read it.
so is mass effect gameplay anything at all like KOTOR ?
Not too much, Mass Effect is a real-time shooter while KOTOR is a turn-based game with both swords/lightsabers and guns. So they do have their differences. But there are similarities also, like traveling with two other members, the branching dialogue (done a lot better in Mass Effect), etc.
Thanks i was quite curious. Happy Holidays.
the whole mass effect franchise will wind up exclusive.... but no worries, others will get some nice spinoff games of shepard's space journies. =D mass effect & xbox360.....novels, fun, epic experiences and a whole new world....mass effect is one of the best games I ever played... wow....tactical style shooting inside an RPG, and to win & explore all the planets...you got to upgrade your skills!!! exciting is hardly the word....its almost better than halo, and just sweet as hell!!
