Next Mass Effect’s Graphics Will Be a Generational Leap Over Dragon Age: Inquisition

Today I had a chance to check out Dragon Age: Inquisition at Gamescom, and to chat with BioWare Creative Development Senior Director Alistair McNally, who is also working on the next Mass Effect.

While Dragon Age: Inquisition definitely looked impressive running on PC (and you’ll learn all about it in a dedicated preview soon) McNally was very clear in mentioning that the next Mass Effect looks a generation beyond the upcoming fantasy game visuals-wise.

That’s because Dragon Age: Inquisition is still a cross-generation game, and there are a lot of factors limiting the current generation version due to the fact that the gameplay needs to be the same on old-gen consoles.

The next Mass Effect (unfortunately I could not convince McNally to reveal its actually title, to the surprise of no one, even if he did confirm that the previously leaked code name Mass Effect: Contact was indeed used by BioWare, but it’s not the official title) will not suffer from the same issue, so BioWare will be able to complete the generational leap.
