Mass Effect's PS4 Debut Still Stuck in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Posted by Sammy Barker

Years away, apparently

You won’t be playing the next Mass Effect title for some time, as BioWare has revealed that its upcoming intergalactic adventure is still years away. The snippet was supposedly stated during a San Diego Comic-Con panel overnight, which was attended by Phil Hornshaw from GameFront. Apparently, while the plot will not revolve around Commander Shepard, the game’s hero will have some form of association with the N7 special forces unit.

Despite promising a look at the development of the new game, the panel hardly delivered anything of interest. Andrea Rene of The Escapist managed to nab a few shots of “your hero”, hinting at the levels of customisation that you can expect in the full game. It also seems that the Mako – the speedy land vehicle featured most prominently in the original Mass Effect – will put in an appearance in the sequel. Judging by the language used in the presentation, it seems that you’ll be able to make this your own as well.

However, don’t get too excited yet, as the group of onstage employees stressed that things are likely to change between now and the game’s eventual release. Our takeaway: this is still a long way away.

I'm selfishly kinda glad. I won't be able to get a PS4 any time soon and knowing a Mass Effect game was coming out that I couldn't play would break my little heart.

well if shepard is going to play any roll or assosiation at all then it has to take place after ME3 so how are they going to let us carry on in the galaxy we forged by our decisions in those games as they were on last gen systems?

Ugh, the Mako. I wouldn't mind exploration in Mass Effect if it was done well. Unlike it was in the first game, where every planet was a barren wasteland and the Mako didn't exactly control like you'd expect a space age vehicle to.

Never got into a mass effect game. Would like to. So would like a trilogy port to ps4 before the 4th game comes out.

Ya, we'll see the next Mass Effect right around the time we see Final Fantasy 15, which should be the launch lineup for 9th gen consoles ;)
