Mass Effect


 

BioWare has revealed that the next Mass Effect game will need a brand new hero, not just a copy of Commander Shepard, as well as a brand new setting.

When VG247 asked BioWare Montreal producer Fabrice Condominas how the team was planning on approaching the next game he replied, “There is one thing we are absolutely sure of – there will be no more Shepard, and the trilogy is over.”

“This is really our starting point. Now the Mass Effect universe is vast, and very, very rich. So at this point in time, we don’t even know what kind of time frame we’re going to be in. All we’re doing is more gathering ideas from the teams, gathering feedback to see several things.”

“So first, we don’t want to make ‘Shepard 2′, or Mass Effect 4 with like, ‘oh there’s no more Shepard but you’re a soldier in the universe’. So this will be a very, very different context for sure, and nothing has been decided on the rest,” he added.

Filling the shoes of Commander Shepard will be a tough thing to do, will the series ever be the same without him/her?
