Exploring Mass Effect 4 possibilities
Looking into the possibilities of Mass Effect 4 it is hard to steer away from any spoilers for those of you who have not completed ME3 yet, but we are concerned about the approach BioWare will take to adapt on this popular franchise. Life after Shepard could be one of more varied paths and other heroes could be on the bench ready to play out the next chapter.
The continuation of the story has so much potential and Bioware need to take certain elements of Mass Effect 3 into consideration, as the galaxy’s remaining races are required to pick up the pieces. Reporting on the future of Mass Effect Official Xbox Magazine ask what the next step will be for not only ME4 but also impending sequels in this franchise.
Their view is that a sequel could be a possibility although there is a higher expectation that Mass Effect’s history will be visited more extensively. The aliens involved throughout the ME series have been great but they cant see a non-human protagonist and there is a high probability that future Mass Effect games are likely to focus on the period after the discovery of the Charon relay. Comics have covered the Turian Contact War, so this could be an ideal setting; there are many stories that can also be told about Cerberus.
With no real insight into what type of game we will see next, a Turian Contact War squad-based shooter would not be a bad direction to go in, a Mass Effect MMO is not one expected anytime soon, at the moment the safe money is on regular content, and weekly episodes would be considerably good for business. What would you like to see next from the Mass Effect franchise? Maybe you would like to see it set in the future rather than the past.
