Mass Effect 4
- Release Dec 31, 2016
Though Commander Shepard’s story might have ended in Mass Effect 3, BioWare isn’t quite done with their beloved space opera series—the countdown has begun for Mass Effect 4.
Solid information on Mass Effect 4 is scarce, but there are some things we do know. The story will likely include throwbacks to the events of Commander Shepard’s story, without direct relation to the previous games in the series, and a vehicle similar to the infamous Mako will play a role. New positions opening up at BioWare, including an online manager, have fans thinking multiplayer will return for the fourth game in the series. The hiring of Mass Effect 3 writer John Dombrow, as well as Halo 4 writer Chris Schlerf, also has players excited about the new narrative direction for one of the most beloved sci-fi game series in history.
Producer Mike Gamble stated at Comic-Con 2014 that the game was still years away from being done, but fans are already chomping at the bit. As BioWare releases more and more teasing tidbits, screencaps, photos, and concept art, the hype gets bigger—Mass Effect 4 is undeniably one of the most anticipated games of the decade.
