The next Mass Effect has been named as Mass Effect Andromeda and is being released in Holiday 2016. This is being worked on by BioWare and will be a sequel to the original trilogy with Commander Shepard.

Teasing snaps of Mass Effect Andromeda were shown including a very fancy way to explore the new sections of the Milky Way we'll be travelling to. Sadly there's no solid gameplay or details yet.

There's more trouble only an Inquisition can solve on the way from BioWare, as creative director Mike Laidlaw confirms they're not moving on from Dragon Age: Inquisition yet. Sadly there'll be no Hero of Ferelden dropping by.

Our original Dragon Age character "will not be appearing" in the Inquisition in person. The Jaws of Hakkon was the first major new story content from BioWare and looked to the Avvar tribes.

Publishing juggernaut Electronic Arts will begin their E3 2015 press conference on June 15th, and it will run for an hour and a half. It begins 1.00pm PDT / 9.00pm GMT+1 in Shrine Auditorium. What's expected up on stage?

So far they haven't revealed what's in their E3 line-up but almost certainly it will have Star Wars: Battlefront, MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, DLC offerings for Battlefield: Hardline and hopefully the next Mass Effect.

It's pretty much a done deal that the new Mass Effect - which BioWare stubbornly won't call Mass Effect '4' - will have an online multiplayer side of things. This is hardly surprising since Mass Effect 3 introduced a successful formula.

The multiplayer wasn't directly connected to Mass Effect 3's main campaign, although it could have a slight impact on 'readiness'. The same sort of online component cropped up in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

It may be currently winning plaudits for its expansive singleplayer campaign, but Dragon Age: Inquisition had something of an unorthodox beginning.

Talking to Gamesindustry.biz, Bioware's Mark Darrah revealed that the game started out as a multiplayer prototype some time before the release of Dragon Age 2.
