BioWare’s new IP appears to be an action game

Last Action Hero

I’m a huge BioWare fan. I obviously am excited for Mass Effect: Andromeda to be shown off at E3, and I’m confident that the success of Dragon Age: Inquisitions will help the team make a really sold new installment in the franchise – so far they seem pretty good at building on their successes and learning from their mistakes. We already knew the studio was working on a new IP, but it appears we’re getting a bit more info about it soon.

The state of the new IP must be far enough along already for there to be merchandise for it. That’s right, back in March, someone was able to walk around GDC with a t-shirt emblazoned with the new IP. Of course, we still don’t know what that looks like because no one took a picture of Mr McNally, but it’s rather cool.

Now, during EA’s Investory Day briefing, they teased a bit more which makes it seem like Bioware is already working on an action game. A slide from the presentation shows how lucrative it could be for EA to make headway into the action genre, something they’ve mentioned before as being important to the publisher. However, it’s the studio listed under the genre that gives us the clue.

EA Action

It makes sense to me – most RPGs are turning into action games and tons of action games are adding RPG elements. So why not have BioWare work on a new action game? At least this way there should be some cool storytelling and characters thrown in, too. I just hope that EA shows this off during E3. Actually, no, I hope they don’t. It’s always such a long wait for BioWare games, and I don’t want to be excited for something that’s only coming in a few years’ time.

EA’s also recently said its Assassin’s Creed” Style game is out in 2018. Is it made by BioWare?

    I like RPG’s. I played Mass Effect 2, I thought I was the shooting at things expert. I played Halo, I discovered I was not. I liked Mass effect shooting at things. Good balance between Action and RPG. or FPS.

      Mass Effect is a 3rd person shooter. FPS is First person. Like Doom. Or Borderlands. XD

        Yes, but in Mass Effect, I could hit things my guns. So I thought I was good. I felt like Mass Effect, particularly 2, had some “aim assist” or something in.

        AND I played Borderlands 2, all DLC. It was fun, a lot of fun. slog sometimes, but it was fun. And in that game I could, mostly hit things.

        I think Mass Effect is an RPG, first and foremost, that has big elements of other types of games, but it cleverly integrates it all so it feels like a proper RPG, that remembers its roots.

            yes. My guns. I missed the comma, of course, thanks for point it out.

            I could hit things, my guns.

            It is like that, By Jupiter and Toutatis.
