Some might already know bits and pieces of this, but here’s what EA had to say about the Mass Effect 2 story in a press release put out today for GamesCom.
“Once again stepping into the role of the heroic Commander Shepard, gamers will command their crew on a suicide mission in space. Players will strategically select each member of their squad, all of whom have a direct impact on the direction of the story and the squad’s chances for survival. Players will select from a motley cast of characters including the newly revealed ‘Grunt’ – a blood-hungry Krogan.
Once players have assembled their squad from amongst the galaxy’s most powerful mystics, geniuses, and convicts, they must lead them on a suicide mission to discover why humans are vanishing from the galaxy. The success of the mission hinges on the squad recruited and their loyalty to the mission. Shepard’s future depends on it.”
I’m looking forward to this follow-up to Mass Effect’s shooter/RPG hybrid romp around the galaxy. It was one of the games I purchased an Xbox 360 for, to be honest. I love sci-fi, I love RPGs…shooters, well, we won’t go there, but I loved Mass Effect. Its a good thing I kept my game saves!
