EA has yet to blow the lid off the next-gen Mass Effect game or Mass Effect 4 but we have solid information for you guys from a survey that has been verified by many industry insiders. Dragon Age: Inquisition leaked similarly and each and every info turned out to be correct.
Here’s the basic gist of what to expect from the game.
The next Mass Effect game takes place in the Helius Cluster (a cluster of 100s of solar systems in the Andromeda Galaxy), far removed by time and space from Commander Shepard’s heroic acts and the final events of the Mass Effect trilogy. You are a pathfinder, a combat trained but un-tested explorer leading an expedition into the Helius cluster to establish a new home for humanity. As you explore this sprawling series of solar systems (over 4x the size of Mass Effect 3), collecting resources and building colonies, you will encounter the savagery of untamed lands in the form of cut-throat outlaws and warring alien races.
There are obviously RPG elements to it as well.
To survive and colonize the wild reaches of space, you will need to grow your arsenal, your ship, your crew and make strategic (and often uneasy) alliances to fight against increasingly menacing foes. Along the way, you will encounter the remains of a once powerful and mysterious alien race, the Remnant, whose forgotten technology holds the key to gaining power in this region of the galaxy. As you uncover who the Remnant were, and the mysteries their ruins contain, you are drawn into a violent race to find the source of their forgotten technology that will determine the fate of humanity.
That’s not all, there’s also multiplayer horde mode. It’s a 4 player co-op mode that lets you and your friends take on challenges across the galaxy. You can unlock multiplayer specific weapons and gear and also earn an APEX currency with which you can buy things in the single player.
Last but not least, you can upgrade your Mako (yes, Mako is back!). You can explore the surfaces of 100s of planets in the Helius Cluster. You can equip and upgrade your Mako in many ways and add turbo boosters, upgrade the shield generator and many things. Mako is also customisable and you can use a lot of paint jobs to make it look the way you want.
There are more details but we will wait for BioWare to confirm them first before letting you know about it.
