If there's one game many RPG fans won't be able to do without in 2011, it's Mass Effect 3 .
More details continue to arrive and the latest batch involves both story and gameplay information. First and foremost, we learn that ME3 will be "a little more like the first game" and overall, it's more of a "traditional story." As we progress, we'll start to unravel more of Shepard's past and of course, whatever choices you make in the current will have a definite impact on the immediate future. Then there are new enemy types, the fact that gun battles are "quicker and deadlier," character customization will take center-stage, and yes, we will face some pretty bad-ass bosses this time around. Lastly, there's one detail that might really appeal to the hardcore: apparently, BioWare is amping up the difficulty, as they say the Normal difficulty in ME3 will be the same as Veteran in ME2.
ME3 is just one of several RPGs slated for this year, but you can bet BioWare's newest will be at or near the head of the pack in terms of overall quality. Anything less would be a disappointment.
