Mass Effect 3 to Include Cut Citadel Plot Line

Posted on November 30, 2011 AT 07:31am

THE BUZZ: Marc Walters, Lead Writer on Mass Effect 3, has revealed that a Citadel plot line that was cut from Mass Effect 2 will appear in the game.

Mass Effect 2 played down the importance of the Citadel, with players only finding a handful of quests that actually required you to be there, unlike the first game which centered around it. ”There was a Mass Effect 2 plot that was a kind of callback to the first Mass Effect that was going to be on the Citadel, and we cut it. But now it’s made a resurrection in Mass Effect 3, so I’m happy, but I can’t say what it is,” he said in the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine. ”That’s the nice thing about trilogies, sometimes you get a second chance.”

EGM’s TAKE: The Citadel is an amazing construct and looks fantastic in-game, so it’s good that Mass Effect 3 will give be giving players a reason to spend more time there.
