Next Mass Effect Gets New Information at SDCC; Male and Female Armor Shown

on July 26, 2014 5:47 PM

New information about the next Mass Effect game has been shared at BioWare’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con. You can check out a quick recap below, courtesy of Twitter users Andrea Rene and Nerd Appropriate.

  • The next Mass Effect has a “Spiritual Successor” vibe.
  • Frostbite 3 allows the animation team to do things they “couldn’t even imagine before.”
  • Speaking of customization, the team wants to give players as much choice as possible.
  • It’ll be set during Shepard’s life time, but won’t involve him/her. It’s a completely new story.
  • Cooperative multiplayer is more important for BioWare than competitive.
  • Some of the characters from old games may make an appearance.
  • It’s too early to announce composers and races available to the players.
  • The mako will return, and it’s very fast.
  • The game isn’t titled Mass Effect 4, at least for now.
  • No release window was provided during the panel.

Below you can see renders of the returning Mako and of the armor for the hero in male and female versions.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
