The storyline has been further speculated for tentatively-titled video game, "Mass Effect 4," which could be coming to the PS4, Xbox One and PC. According to a report from Gamer Headlines on June 29, Mac Walters once again reiterated that the plot of the upcoming title won't be directly linked to the first three games of the science-fiction role-playing series. However, the writer did not reveal any other details.
Bioware previously stated that the story of "Mass Effect 4" could take place before or after the events of the original trilogy. Gamer Headlines noted that the development team could explore some of the underdeveloped plot elements. Players may end up being involved in the Geth War, which is also known as the Morning War, between the Geths and Quarians. Furthermore, the next game could also provide more insight on the Krogan Rebellions as well as the Protheans.
Bioware was expected to show off the video game at last month's Electronic Entertainment Expo. The developer ended up posting a short video diary talking vaguely about the latest "Mass Effect" project. The aforementioned Krogan race was confirmed to return while some of the planets were also shown off. In the same video, the company also confirmed that a completely new intellectual property is also in development.
The production progress for "Mass Effect 4" is around halfway complete. Bioware is working on "Dragon Age Inquisition," which is coming out later this year on Oct. 7, at the same time. Both games are using the Frostbite 3 graphics engine and will be sharing some development tools as well. You can find a screen from the latest "Dragon Age" title near the top of this article (via the official Facebook page of the series).
The "Mass Effect 4" release date has been elusive. However, Amazon recently revealed that the video game is most likely coming to the PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms. The Montreal side of Bioware is accountable for the development of the newest installment of the series, which will be published by Electronic Arts.
