Additionally details have been made available by Bioware in regards to the tentatively-titled, "Mass Effect 4." According to a report from Gameranx on Aug.5, the development team disclosed that there will be a mix of old and new alien races in the science-fiction role-playing game. Although nothing specific was provided, the studio did mention that players will have various interactions with the diverse groups of inhabitants.

Bioware also confirmed that the multiplayer is going to return in the next game in the series. Instead of competitive battles, the development team is leaning towards more cooperative features found in "Mass Effect 3." However, the plans could change as nothing concrete has been set so far in regards to expanding from the single-player campaign.

Speaking of the third game, the studio admitted that the controversial original ending severely impacted the company. Bioware reassured fans that the epilogue weren't meant to make the player's choices worthless in the end. Instead, the development team was just trying to look for a way to end the story from the perspectives as game designers. In the future, Bioware is going to put more emphasis on the choices made by players. As a result, the fans should be able to be satisfied with the emotional payoff of making tough decisions.

The company is getting ready to release "Dragon Age Inquisition," which features multiple endings based on the actions of the main character that were made throughout the main campaign. The medieval role-playing game is now due to launch on Nov. 18 after being delayed once again. You can find a screen from the upcoming title near the top of this article (via the Facebook page of the "Dragon Age" series).

"Mass Effect 4" is in the middle of the development cycle. The studio has been releasing small bits of information about the new installment although not much has been shown so far. The potential sequel still has no official release date time frame.
