When it was announced that BioWare would be leaving Mass Effect protagonist Commander Shepard behind, some fans were none too pleased.
That debate still rages about the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda , but senior development director Chris Wynn says fans shouldn't be so grim.
When one fan said a Mass Effect without Shepard would be "embarrassing," Wynn replied on Twitter :
"I am well versed in the caparinhia, delicious. Be open minded to a Mass Effect with no Shepard, it can be good."
It's tough to leave the Shepard triology behind, no doubt about it. Role-playing and sci-fi fans alike consider the first three Mass Effect titles to be some of the best games ever, and to see a fresh effort without the only protagonist they've ever known, well, one can understand the dissent. However, this is BioWare. They can make good with just about any character, right?
In the past, we've heard the studio say that Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the "best and largest" installment ever , and they also want the new adventure to appeal to both veterans and newcomers . Hopefully, we'll hear more about it soon.
