Mass Effect 2

I must be losing my mind as I was quite certain that Mass Effect 2 had already been officially announced, that is until I saw that EA Games had decided to officially announce the sequel today.

So if you didn’t know Mass Effect 2 is coming and it’s also only coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 PC in early 2010 which is an eternity away for most gaming fans.. at least we have a date range now though.

You can see the entire press release after the break and don’t forget to check out the Mass Effect website for new trailers and background images.

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (March 17th, 2009) – Leading video game developer BioWareTM, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. today officially announced Mass EffectTM 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the multi award-winning 2007 hit, Mass Effect. TheMass Effect trilogy is a masterful science fiction adventure set in a vast universe filled with dangerous alien life forms and mysterious uncharted planets. In this dark second chapter, Saren’s evil army of Geth soldiers has just been defeated, and humans, who are still struggling to make their mark on the galactic stage, are now faced with an even greater peril…

"We’re going to surpass the extraordinary gaming experience we brought our fans in Mass Effect by delivering intensified combat and expanded weapon options as well as increased depth of planet exploration, all while delivering a powerful, emotionally engaging story," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, General Manager and CEO, BioWare and General Manager and Vice President, EA.

    “So if you didn’t know Mass Effect 2 is coming and it’s also only coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 in early 2010”

    Don’t you mean Xbox360 And PC?

  • 🙁 I did indeed

  • Q121

    Hell I have not even played Mass effect 1 🙁 there are so many really good xbox 360 games that I have never played.

    Is the mass effect series similar to Fallout 3?

  • WitWolfyZA

    sort of…. but your 3rd person the whole time, with hours of dialogue propped in. In my opinion if you havn’t played Mass Effect yet. Then your seriously missing out on a brilliantl story line and great game mechanics aswel

  • Darthdad

    Is it similar to ‘Knights of the Old Republic’?

  • Kudo’s to them for releasing the sequel on the PC
    as well. Eventhough it’ll be a while after the 360
    version, at least they didn’t pull a Cliffy B(astard)
    by only releasing the first game and not bothering with
    the sequels. :angry:

  • Yeah, it is quite. 🙂

    Only without lightsabers. 😛

  • Fox1

    I also haven’t played Mass Effect 1. It’s now retailing at R299… but Gears 2 is R499…. but PGR4 is R299…but Fable 2 is R499…but Fifa 08 is R199…but Smackdown vs Raw 2008 is R199… But..but…but… :biggrin:

  • DarthPenguin

    And the gameplay isn’t near as shallow !

    I still don’t like Knights of the Old Republic.. but I loved Mass Effect.

  • I only ever bothered playing any RPG for more than a
    hour. That being with Fallout 3 and Mass Effect.
    Thoroughly enjoyed it. Can’t wait for nr 2.

  • Sorry, my first sentence is a bit out of whack there :dizzy:
    But I’m sure you get what I was trying to say :tongue:
