This Mass Effect 4 Panel Comes with Commander Shepard's Endorsement

Hero's favourite public forum at Comic-Con 2014

Hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 follow-up Mass Effect 4 is in a weird sort of promotional limbo right now, strangely nestling somewhere between announced and unannounced. We know that the game exists, for example, but we don’t really know a whole lot about it – and that makes its inclusion in the Comic-Con 2014 lineup all the more intriguing.

Apparently, top dogs from both BioWare Montreal and BioWare Edmonton are planning to descend upon San Diego next week to dish a little more dirt on the impending sequel. Lead animator Carl Boulay, producers Fabrice Condominas and Mike Gamble, senior artist Noel Lukasewich, and community manager Jessica Merizan will all be present to “share their experiences in shaping the next Mass Effect game with new possibilities, while staying true to the critically acclaimed series”.

The panel will be held on 26th July, and while an official unveiling is unlikely, fans will surely want to listen in for any tidbits shared. According to the developer, the game is in a playable state right now, but is only about halfway through production. A formal announcement will likely be made at next year’s E3 – though some form of VGX teaser trailer seems possible, too.

love the Mass Effect series, shame the PS3 version of ME2 was poor port all the sound problems and long loading times really spoilt it for me

still that's why I own all the consoles I can, that way I won't miss out or have to put up with shody ports

Greatest trilogy ever... Don't even bother arguing with me because I'm not hearing any of it.

I'm seriously starting to doubt that supposed 2015 launch window. Gonna be a long while yet.

Love this series (ME3 annoyances aside). ME2 is still one of my favorite games of all time. Can't wait to hear more.

In fact I love most stuff from BioWare. I try very hard to forget that EA bought them and has started introducing some poor DLC decisions.

Still hoping for that rumored ME trilogy-remake for PS4...just played ME 1 and 2 last gen and loved it. Would love to play the whole trilogy again with all DLC included and without the technical issues.
