Mass Effect Devs Discuss its Future at Comic-Con!
So... Who's looking forward to the next Mass Effect? (I AM, I AM!) But how on Earth (or any planet for that matter) do they plan on continuing without Commander Shepard?!
Some questions could be answered on Saturday, July the 26th in this years San Diego Comic-Con where BioWare will be 'sharing their experiences in shaping the next Mass Effect game with new possibilities while staying true to the critically acclaimed series.' Either this or they will just tease us with open-ended answers, but either way I'm excited to hear what they have to say.
Mass Effect developers from the Edmonton and Montreal studios will sit the panel, including: Carl Boulay (lead animator), Fabrice Condominas (producer), Mike Gamble (producer),Noel Lukasewich (senior artist) and Jessica Merizan (community manager). So make sure to have your questions at the ready! Will you be reusing planets? Have you thought of any cool new species? Will there still be awkward relationship decisions? Will there ever be a nod towards Shepard's story or past decisions? These are just a fraction of my own.
If you're lucky enough to be attending Comic-Con this year then make sure to be in Room 25 ABC at 2pm early enough to grab a seat; with over 200 people claiming to attend already on the Comic-Con website it's bound to fill up quickly!
But if you can't wait that long then make sure to join in with molding the next Mass Effect game yourself by filling out the Mass Effect fan feedback survey. This quick survey mainly asks what you enjoy most about RPG games, which for myself has to be exploration and character development. What are you hoping will be included in the next Mass Effect?
"We start by asking fans what they want... New places, new characters, new people to fall in love with. We're taking you to a whole new region of space."
