Mass Effect 2 Review

Fashionably late to the PS3 party but better than ever.

It's N7 Day Again, But With Mass Effect Basically Dead, What Could Bioware Be Teasing?

article image

I'm no Mass Effect expert, but the idea of November 7 being N7 day just seems like a silly coincidence to me. A bit like May 4 is for Star Wars. Either way, we've arrived at it once more, except this time it's the series' 10th-anniversary celebration.

E3 2015: Mass Effect Andromeda opens EA's E3 conference, due Holiday 2016

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.

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.

BioWare looking for producer to "shape online for 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.

Casey Hudson, probably best known as the executive producer of the Mass Effect Trilogy, has left Bioware after 16 years with the studio.

In a letter posted publicly by Bioware, Hudson said he wanted to "take a much needed break, get perspective on what I really want to do with the next phase of my life, and eventually, take on a new set of challenges."
