BioWare has said that there may be more to follow in the Mass Effect series even after the trilogy comes to a conclusion at the end of Mass Effect 3.
Speaking to GamerZines, Mike Gamble, associate producer for Mass Effect 3, has said that gamers should hang onto their Mass Effect 3 saves.
“It wouldn’t be a bad idea (to keep your ME3 saves). Obviously I can’t say anything, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea,” he says.
Obviously since Gamble couldn’t say much on the topic, it seems there will definitely be some more games in the Mass Effect franchise but not necessarily to do with the current storyline or main characters. Gamble has said that Shepard’s send-off will be quite satisfying to the player and while nobody knows yet how things will end, it just needs to make gamers feel that satisfaction, be it happy or sad.
Mass Effect 3 will be launching on 6 March for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 but gamers can get an early taste of the game in the demo that will be releasing on 14 February. According to ShackNews, the demo on the Xbox 360 will include a trial for Xbox Live Gold which will allow gamers access to the “Galaxy at War” co-op mode.
While the demo launches on 14 February, there will be some exclusive access gamers who get first access to it. For everyone else, the demo will be available on 17 February.
I actually just recently finished Mass Effect 2 because I had played it before all the way up to the Omega 4 Relay and then lost my hard drive. I was determined to have a character to import for Mass Effect 3 and now I’m so glad I finished the game because it refreshed me on everything that happened. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to ME3 and the next month is going to trickle by very slowly for me.
