First details of Mass Effect 4

[url=http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=862537]Via NeoGAF[/url] Details: -The Mako is back, they showed video of it, and there are images of it below. It's apparently quite fast now. -"Building a game about exploring places, so you need a vehicle for that " -"We learned some things about vehicle frustration" -They showed off armor renders, viewable below -"Sounds like the timeline of #MassEffect will be during Shepard's lifetime but won't involve Shepard...hard to tell @GambleMike being cagey!" [Note: Two other tweeters said it sounds like it takes place in another galaxy, though that's not necessarily mutually exclusive with this.] -"Team reiterates that it is not Shepard's story and that this story one is brand new." -"no timeline was announced at the panel. Some hints were made but I have to re-listen to the audio." -"You will see a bit of old with the new (old characters MAY appear) " -"Competition is critical but cooperation is bigger for us" @GambleMike speaking on multiplayer in #MassEffect / "cooperative MP is bigger for us (than competitive)" -"Spiritual successor" vibe for the next -"It's ingrained in us to give players as much choice as possible" - @GambleMike #MassEffect -"The animation team is now doing stuff we couldn't even dream about before" speaking on Frostbite 3 for #MassEffect -"it's not called ME 4 damn it! " [I'm going to keep calling it that until they give it a name.] -No announcements on player race choice of composers when asked -The internet kept dying for the people livetweeting so there are more details that aren't here -"I got video of the new #MassEffect Mako in action" -"Seems strongly implied that new Mass Effect will be set in totally different galaxy, but will contain familiar elements. #SDCC" -"Not playing as Shepherd, and Shepherd is not important to story - new uncharted areas. #SDCC" -"Mako is back in Mass Effect! More agile, no cannon. #SDCC" -"New Mass Effect is focused on exploration of planets, Mako is meant to be fast travel on them. #SDCC" -[Note]: Nerd Appropriate (one of the original tweeters) also said it sounded like another galaxy but they need to double check their audio recording.

    Have they said how many aliens you can bang yet? And if they would report to your cabin immediately?

    • One of the things I really disliked about Mass Effect 3's ending was the finality of it. No matter what you chose, the galaxy was forever and completely changed. And while Bioware may have their own reasons for setting this new game in a different galaxy, it seems like they aren't happy with the finality of ME3's ending either.

        • ...Curious about this, Still kind of ..disappointed Mass Effect 3 ended with me blowing up the reapers, then even AFTER the extended cut, Shepard still takes a breathe at the end , I guess it's just left up to me to decide if he's dead or not. I really wish they would get with a new publisher...unless EA isn't being facetious this time around.

          New Mass Effect does not retcon Mass Effect 3 entirely and thus is not going to get my money. It's also made by EAWare. As is Inquisition.. and we've already got 4 strikes in a row to prove they don't learn their lessons. Here's another 2 coming up.

            • I'm confused. How is the Mako back, but it takes place in another galaxy? Wouldn't another galaxy mean completely different societies, aliens, and technology?

              • what I'm hoping to see here is solid gameplay from the original mass effects such as the second because it was quite fast (because it's one of my favorite cover shooters with tactical gameplay) and I hope the developers take full control of nex gen capabilities and try to make full expansive worlds that are explorable. AND there including frost bite 3 so this could be sick.

                • This sounds laughably bad. At least Bioware will keep bringing the trainwrecks with Dragon age and Mass Effect.

                  • good to here the MP will be co-op. I love playing ME3 co-op a lot. I hope they expand upon it. The 11 waves of hordes with objective is quite addicting.

                  • It excites me to hear that exploration is a big deal. I loved exploring in all the previous games. I just hope we get great characters like before and i'll be fine.
