News broke this week of the next chapter in the Mass Effect series. Not only have they begun designing the next chapter of the galaxy exploring RPG, but we also know that it won't be featuring Commander Shepard as the main protagonist either. Now you can take that with a pinch of salt, publishers love to cause a fuss and a bit of hype with rumours and more to build interest in a game, for all we know it could feature "lieutenant Shepard" instead, or have him as a side line character, or perhaps be a new story with new faces altogether. One thing is for certain though, I can't wait to play it.
The announcement came from the Twitter page of Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series Casey Hudson as he tweeted "We're in early stages of designing a completely new Mass Effect game. What would you want to see in it?"
For me Mass Effect was a fantastic journey, it had one of the best scripted stories in modern gaming history, well voice acted, great graphics and an immensely scaled semi-open environment to explore, what else could I want? I think it is time for some new blood, new faces, new story and I'm hoping for a more futuristic setting, not another prequel please.
