When it was announced that Disney acquired the right for the Star Wars movies, reactions were mixed. There was a further blow when LucasArts, the company that helped bring us many Star Wars and other memorable games, was shut down. Now there is news that EA will be at the helm of future Star Wars games.
We don't know much about the next Mass Effect (aside from the fact that there will be one), but series executive producer Casey Hudson is hinting that it will be a pretty large departure from the previous trilogy.
At PAX East today, Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson revealed that BioWare is currently developing a brand new franchise. The unnamed game is currently being worked on at the studio's Edmonton branch, although that's about all they're ready to confirm.
Looks like EA and Bioware want to remind you that there's a new Mass Effect 3 DLC coming out tomorrow, and they're doing so with a last-minute trailer. Check it out after the jump.
It’s almost been a year since the release of Mass Effect 3 in North America. That means we’ve been listening to people gripe about the infamous ending for almost a year now. Since then, we’ve seen DLC that tried to explain the existence of the Reapers, get Aria’s lazy butt off her couch, and give us closure to the “WTF” ending. Nothing so far has adequately given the fans the desired closure, but will the third pay-to-play DLC be the charm?
Mass Effect 3 seems like one of the least likely candidates for story-driven DLC, and yet, here's another one. Much like Leviathan, it'll take place sometime before the ending of the game, and thus, probably won't have much of an impact on the larger story. Still, Mass Effect's gameplay is solid, and if you're itching for a chance to step back into Shepard's space-shoes, this looks like a pretty fun ride. Check out the new launch trailer for the DLC below, Omega launches on November 27.
Fresh off the "what the hell did I just see?" ending of Mass Effect 3, Variety has some news regarding the Mass Effect movie in the works. Wait, there's a Mass Effect movie in the works? Wait, Mass Effect 3 came out seven months ago? Well, either way, more info below.
In a recent interview with VG24/7, Bioware producer Fabrice Condominas has confirmed that the studio will continue to explore the Mass Effect universe. But will it star series protagonist Commander Shepard? As Condominas put it, "There is one thing we are absolutely sure of – there will be no more Shepard, and the trilogy is over."
EA's Summer Showcase event has revealed Bioware's plans for a new Mass Effect singleplayer DLC. The story-based expansion will take place during the events of Mass Effect 3, and will have players going deep underwater in a mech suit to explore a massive derelict. There you'll chase clues in your search for a mysterious being rumored to be powerful enough to destroy a Reaper.
Well, there's another notch in the belt that is the long and crazy story of Mass Effect 3's development. Today, gamers around the world revisited Commander Shepard's story to see what Bioware had been cooking up in the 'Extended Ending' DLC. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much, and that's pretty much what I got. It certainly improves on quite a bit, and I can say that's it's at least a little better than the original, but overall, it was fairly inconsequential.
