Mass Effect 2 was – aside from some playful banter betwixt joker and Edi - largely dark and ominous in tone. According to BioWare’s Casey Hudson in an interview with OXM, the third game in the series may just do a â€œReturn of the Jedi,â€ bringing a little more light-heartedness.
"The second story in a trilogy is where you traditionally end up in a fairly dark place. The third story is where you try and bring some fun and lightness back into it," said Hudson.
"One thing we tried to do with Mass Effect 2 was as well as bringing in the more mature stuff, we also tried to bring in a lot more humor so that we can go to these places without making it an overbearing experience. I think we have a lot more fun this time through characters like Joker and EDI."
Continuing, he says that "Mass Effect 3 is going to be the epic conclusion … so, a lot more darkness but also a lot more humor."
So there you go. ME3 is going to be funnier. Let’s just hope they don’t try too hard – and there are no Ewoks or characters like Jar-Jar Binks.
