New Mass Effect To Include Frostbite, Offers Up New Gameplay

Last week Casey Hudson sent the internet into a frenzy when he announced via Twitter that BioWare is working on a “completely new Mass Effect game.” We’re all still really excited about that news, though news from the developer today adds a couple of important facts to the announcement. What we’ve learned is that the new Mass Effect game will be running on the Frostbite engine, which is the very same that’s being implemented to build the new Dragon Age 3 title.

Yanick Roy from the BioWare Montreal studio was the voice behind these updates, and he continued on to give us some things to look forward to with the future of Mass Effect. First and foremost, he urges players and fans to find a way to forego their attachments they hold to the Shepard trilogy. With the closing of Mass Effect 3 the series is taking a new turn, and it will push forward in “new directions, both on the gameplay and the story fronts.” It will still hold on to the wide array of alien races and provide a giant galaxy to explore, so the core elements will be there.

The last thing that was mentioned in the update was that it will most likely be “quite a while” before we hear more word on the game. Right now BioWare’s focus is set to Dragon Age 3, and whatever else they plan to do with Star Wars: The Old Republic. It makes sense that we wouldn’t be hearing about the new Mass Effect until things with Dragon Age calm down.
