Creative director of 'Mass Effect' Mac Walters has send out some tweets on Twitter in which he asks fans to share their ideas of what they would want (new feature, system or gameplay) in the next Mass Effect.
I want the game to be like Mass Effect 1 on almost every aspect. Maybe tighten the gameplay a bit and make the worlds have more contents than just mining for ores and whatnot. Make the Mako customizable. Add Zero-G ability just like in Dead Space. That would be an amazing idea actually.
Pretty much Oh and as always COOL DOWN WEAPONS....NO THERMAL CLIPS Seriously it's what made the second game feel like an over the top third person shooter. Instead of planning your fire fights, picking the right party members to make up for what your chosen class is lacking and being limited to your classes weapons took all the strategic elements out of the game when you could just go in there guns blazing. If they want to add VERY RARE thermal clip drops where you can keep on firing then fair enough but once you run out they'll go back to cool down.
Yeah, cool down weapons made you think your strategy twice before firing. It was an excellent well done idea. Which is why Cool Down weapons with Biotic Shepard made the game amazing. Although when you got the Spectre Weapons, they mostly stopped overheating :) . Except for the sniper.
All i want is AWESOMENESS in the next game!!!
lol cool downs were so broken. I remember I could rapid fire some of my weapons indefinitely because it would cool faster than it would generate heat. Good times. Though I am glad the atrocious cover system from ME1 is gone.
@WildArmed Isn't that the whole point of the next game....to improve on past gameplay features Cool down weapons are better then thermal clips...
I would like proper space exploration and combat! Not some half-assed RTS style arcade space exploration like all 3 previous games. A dev like BIOWARE has no excuses when it comes to polish in ALL aspects of a their games (especially ME) should feel/be thorough developed to their full potential aka, complete! As for the rest it would be awesome if we get an ME+ME2 hybrid when it comes to mechanics and character progression. BUT I would love to see them try new things both story and gameplay-wise. Oh and a good ending from the get go please ;-)
Mass Effect 3 was released in march of 2012 ... that´s friggin 3 years ago! AND THEY have the audacity to ask 3 YEARS LATER what we want to see in ME4?! Just woah.... What´s next : Do we have to tell´em HOW THEY SHOULD MAKE FALLOUT 4!! Have they not done any research on their own at all?! /shrug
They probably want to know so they can build dlc and charge more for it.
I'm with you, the exploration really Made it fun for me
Gief Shephard back!
Why do you want him/her back?. Shepards story is over and this is NOT Mass Effect 4 so it won't make sense to have him anyways. This will most likely be far removed from the overall story of the ME trilogy to begin its own story and will have new characters.
I hope they make it less like Mass Effect 3 it was basicly a third person corridor shooter unlike MassEffect 1 and MassEffect 2
The main thing I wish different is the way you choose the ending
Basically Mass Effect 1 but maybe a little darker, and Coop would be awesome
Always thought it would be an "easy" integration for co-op. Your friends can pop in as one of your teammates and fight with you. Once mission is over, you got back to your world and turn in any story/quests you want before jumping back into action
The only problem I could see with Co-op is the dialogue choices. If one of you wanted to be Paragon, and the other Renegade, what would happen?
As long as co-op doesn't affect the outcome of the single player campaign, the fact that there was something wrong with our internet connection meant I couldn't join in with other people and could only solo and didn't get enough EMS to get the full choice of endings. I'm living at home due to illnes and didn't pay the internet bill so I couldn't change to a better (and cheaper) ISP
More planetary exploration, more space station exploration. Space combat. Definately space combat. I want to be Jean Luc Shepherd!
One thing that they have been stressing is that the new ME game will have a much bigger focus on exploration. I want space combat as well.
No three colour endings! No star children! Scrap the fuel system from ME3, and I personally found the RNG loot drops annoying in multiplayer because my luck was awful.
If it makes you feel better, after spending about 200mil on the boxes in multiplayer, I still didn't have all the weapons/ chars. The rng system was pretty damn stupid. I stopped opening boxes at one point because it was a waste of time. All that money still sitting there. The gameplay was super fun though, can't stress that enough. DAI MP wasn't as fun as ME3 for me.. even though I prefered DAI over ME3.
Imagine the amount of money people spent without realizing that they were getting the same cards over and over. It was a great mode but the RNG overlapping crap totally butchered it.
I agree + bubs for your comment. Yeah, multiplayer was a blast but unfortunately I kept getting the same items, and never managed to get the gear/weapons at max. stats. I feel for those who used real money to buy the boxes.
I suggest sending a tweet to Mac Walters :)
A better ending than 3?
oh for the love of god, don't ask fans what they want to in the next ME... design the game how *you* want to design it, don't design via focus group.
They are just asking for SOME things that the fans may want in the game. They aren't asking us to design the entire game geez.
doesn't matter how much of the game it is, these devs are more than capable of making a game without resorting to focus groups.
Bring back some of the better cast, borrow from ME 1, but add timed clip change in battle .
No online play and only focus on the singleplayer :) Basically ME2 with better graphics.
I have always wished Destiny was rich in story like Mass Effect was. Now with Mass effect 4 coming. I would love to see smooth First person action as it is in Destiny in Mass Effect 4. Destiny definitely nailed the gameplay, if Mass Effect can mimic this. It will be MASSIVE!!!
moar ghey seks.
More RPG elements. More space exploration. Less linear levels. Basically more ME1 and less 2 and 3.
Agreed! I want my rpg back not another generic space marine tps like 2 and 3. Might as well play gears if you want it to be like those, imo.
Badass male character / sexy badass (not with manly behavior as fem shep) female as protagonist, and lots of hot female aliens. With great gameplay and graphics of course. More armor and weapon customization options and more open "ended-ness" and more hubs.
Never played Mass before. Anyways here's some of my ideas.. Have Full control of your space craft would be a good idea. Ability to enter a shooting gallery at will, once you enter the shooting gallery it will randomly pick any online player to play against. Also, Once you enter the gallery shooting room(1 VS 1) A score board will be displayed of the top 12 players who are the best gun fighter in the sector region of space. That way a player can get his or her bragging rights. Find unknown elements on uncharted planet never been explored before, and take them back to a scientist who can help reveal the properties of those elements you found on the planet. Later you can you those elements to build weapons/upgrades.
An RPG. Make my ammo and armor choices really f'n matter.
will they be releasing a remastered version for the nextgen consoles? i would really like to play this in a better framerate/resolution.
Uhmmm...shouldn;t the game be far enough along in development that the wants and dreams of the fans would pretty well become a moot point?
There's always DLC-milking.
To be done.
Not a great sign that the "creative" part of the team is already asking for ideas...
A better choices, gameplay, sidemissions.
More RPG less shooter.
Futuristic drugs , flying missions , unreal 4 engine ,space whores, family relationships, alien stow away, more gore , rival new age spiritual factions , dying planets , stars reborn , space station social hub for co op, poor races living on scrap planets causing unrest, alien disease spread to human, human alien hybrid character customization , oh and 24 player co op horde mode.lol
More exploration like in the first game but more free roming on planets on vehicles and on foot, I remember landing on a planet on ME1 and going along this cliff and down below I sniped all these guys before going in a base, it gave a better feel of how to aproach missions with diffrent strategys, oh and the action and gun play from the second was great too, apply open world planets, seconday objectives, deep weapon and armour customisation, improved choice making in cut scenes, cant wait for some gameplay hopefully we will see some at e3?
For it to be like mass effect 2 and not 3.
More gay and fabulous stuff.
Exploration! Give us huge maps to explore. Also, random encounters would be nice too. More rpg, less tps. Lastly. add some ambiguity to the paragon / renegade dynamic. The world, or the decisions we make in it, are not always so black and white, you know? It shouldn't be so obvious weather we are giving paragon or renegade answers.
I want item grinding, in other words to farm for items and a leveling system that forces you to grind for levels if you want to be able to do some extra difficult areas of the game. Pretty much Destiny. Bosses that requires a party to kill them, extra planets to explore, grind grind grind.
