Yesterday, BioWare said the new Mass Effect would definitely appeal to both long-time fans and newcomers .
Now, they're talking more about the development progress of the new installment. It sounds like things are moving along nicely, as evidenced by various Tweets from the team.
For instance, cinematic director Ken Thain posted :
"New #MassEffect story and main character reviews today. This sh**'s gettin' real! I think the fans will be really excited to play this story."
Producer Mike Gamble added :
"Lots of great @masseffect meetings today. Things are really moving forward. It's great to be involved in the universe again."
For most RPG fans, this is great news. While it's true that the third entry seemed to embrace more action-oriented traits, that's a common trend and one we just have to accept. More action, less thought; when it comes to blockbuster franchises designed for the mass market, anyway. And if EA wants to sell a truckload of the new Mass Effect , you have to assume it'll have some flash to go along with the depth.
Gotta make an eye-catching trailer, after all.
