When it comes to Mass Effect , you expect memorable characters.

And that's exactly what BioWare will task a new Senior Cinematic Animator with doing: Helping create a dramatic, enduring character.

That's clear in a recent job listing for developer BioWare Montreal. This person will generate "emotionally believable characters that allow game players to interact with the game, whether photorealistic or stylized, in a realistic and believable fashion." That's a good sign; it means the emphasis on narrative and plot will be just as strong as ever. We're seeing that wane a bit these days so it's nice to hear.

Thus far, the fourth Mass Effect effort remains an unofficial mystery. We know it's coming, of course, but details remain scarce. For now, anyway.
