  • News BioWare Celebrates Ten Years of Mass Effect with N7 Day 2017

    Making history

    Today's the 7th November, also known as N7 Day, if you happen to be a massive Mass Effect nerd. For a decade now, BioWare has been using N7 Day to celebrate its sci-fi series, wheeling out announcements or reveals as well as spotlighting community efforts. Sadly, there don't appear to be any big announcements happening today -- where...

    Expanding the universe

BioWare has announced...

  • News Dragon Age Director Mike Laidlaw Leaves BioWare After 14 Years

    End of an age

    One of the main minds behind the Dragon Age series, creative director Mike Laidlaw has left BioWare after 14 years with the studio. Always happy to connect with the community, Laidlaw took to Twitter in order to announce his departure. His post reads: "It's with a mix of emotions that I'm announcing my time with BioWare has...

  • News Of Course ANTHEM Will Have a Beta Before Launch

    Why wouldn't it?

    ANTHEM, BioWare's big budget third-person shooter role-playing thing, will be getting a beta at some point before launch. The game's still a while away yet -- it's currently got a vague Fall 2018 release window -- but with projects like this, the developer is always going to be looking to the future and planning things out well in...




  • E3 2017 We Just Got a Little More Hyped for ANTHEM

    Mass Effect 1 and 2 lead writer is working on it

    We just got a bit more hyped for ANTHEM - the gritty sci-fi third person shooter that was revealed at EA's showcase. Why? Well, it turns out that Drew Karpyshyn's working on it. Karpyshyn was lead writer on both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, and he also wrote the Mass Effect expanded universe novels...

  • E3 2017 ANTHEM Is Aiming for a Fall 2018 Release

    Nope, not spring

    Oh, so it turns out that ANTHEM is farther away than we initially thought. The sci-fi shooter from BioWare was shown off during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference a few hours ago, and based on what we saw, the project looked reasonably far along. However, Business Wire has the game pegged for a fall 2018 release, so it's a...

  • E3 2017 Gritty Sci-Fi Open World Shooter ANTHEM Gets First Gameplay

    Mech it happen

    BioWare went ahead with a full gameplay demo of ANTHEM at Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference, and it looks pretty cool. There's a definite Destiny vibe here, with the science fiction and the shooting and the co-op and the loot, but again, it looks promising. You can check out the footage above. What do you make of ANTHEM? Suit up...

  • E3 2017 BioWare's ANTHEM Due Spring 2018, Not Exclusive to Xbox

    Important details

    BioWare's brand new intellectual property, ANTHEM, was revealed yesterday during EA's totally-not-E3 press conference. All we got was a very brief teaser trailer, so admittedly we don't have much to say about the project just yet, but what we do know is that it's going to be blown open at Microsoft's show tonight. The fact...

  • E3 2017 Gritty Sci-Fi Title ANTHEM Is BioWare's Next Game

    The makers of Mass Effect are back

    BioWare's new property was revealed earlier at EA's totally-not-E3 showcase via a brief teaser trailer. The game's called ANTHEM, and it appears to be some sort of gritty sci-fi title. It uses the Frostbite engine, and we'll be seeing more of it tomorrow at Microsoft's press conference. Got any first...

  • News Surprise! Mass Effect: Andromeda's Development Was a Mess, Says Report

    Space balls

    For many, Mass Effect: Andromeda was and still is a bitter disappointment. The title launched back near the end of March, and it was met with largely lukewarm reviews and an absolute thrashing from gamers across the internet. Almost three months later and it's barely being talked about anymore. To put it bluntly, Andromeda has...

  • News Mass Effect: Andromeda PS4 Patch 1.08 Makes Jaal Bisexual, Fixes a Few Things

    More bang for your buck

    BioWare has detailed Mass Effect: Andromeda's next patch. Update 1.08 doesn't contain the biggest list of fixes that we've ever seen, but there may be a few points of interest for those still playing the game. The headline here is that the patch allows for Angaran squadmate Jaal to be romanced by male Ryder. Previously, Jaal...










  • News Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster for PS4 May Finally Be Happening

    About time

    It's difficult to think of many last-gen properties that fully deserve to be remastered for the current generation. The Uncharted Collection is a good shout, and titles like Skyrim are arguably too popular to ignore - but the continued absence of a Mass Effect Trilogy remaster has always baffled us. This is a story that goes all the way...






  • News BioWare's Considering a Dragon Age Spin-Off Title

    Tactical advantage

    "Would you play a Dragon Age Tactics game?" asks series executive producer Mark Darrah over on Twitter. The BioWare veteran even posted a poll on the social media platform, with 49 per cent of voters answering "Yes!" We suppose that means we could be getting a spin-off Dragon Age game in the future, then. Sure, it's a bit of an...

  • News Mass Effect: Andromeda's Lead Writer has Jumped Ship to Destiny

    Andromeda will "blow people away"

    Mass Effect: Andromeda's lead writer, Chris Shlerf, has revealed that he's left the project and is now working at Bungie on Destiny. Going by Shlerf's tweets on the matter, it would appear as though his role has been fulfilled when it comes to BioWare's latest, with him leaving on good terms with the Canadian...


  • News Veteran Dragon Age Writer David Gaider Leaves BioWare

    The story begins anew

    Ask many a Dragon Age fan who David Gaider is and they'll probably point out that he's partly responsible for bringing BioWare's fantasy role-playing series to life. Gaider's typically great writing can be found in all three Dragon Age titles that have appeared on PlayStation platforms. He also wrote numerous novels and...

  • News Mass Effect: Andromeda Is in a Playable Form Right Now

    Still on target for late 2016

    We'll be the first to admit that this isn't a huge slice of news - especially when it originates from a series of BioWare employee tweets - but it would appear that Mass Effect: Andromeda is now playable, at least to some degree. In other words, the game's development cycle is supposedly going smoothly. "Just...

  • News Key BioWare Developer Leaves Mass Effect: Andromeda

    Making sense of the stars

    Chris Wynn, otherwise known as Mass Effect: Andromeda's senior development director, has ended his career at BioWare. Wynn was originally taken on by the developer in 2013 to help with the upcoming sci-fi project. So, what does this mean for the highly anticipated role-playing release?
