The Mass Effect franchise was so well received we haven’t even reached it on our top 100 game countdown yet, you can check out our countdown here. But it looks like the next set of games will be ready for gamers starting in 2014 as the General Manager of BioWare Edmonton tweeted this out earlier.
Great time playing the next Mass Effect game in Montreal. Ambitious. Beautiful. Fresh but recognizable. And fun! pic.twitter.com/xHlHFGtVKM

Obviously that doesn’t give us much but it does confirm that the next game from them will be a new Mass Effect game that is rumoured to be less like a shooter and more like a fully fledged RPG again.
The most exciting part here though is that he has confirmed that the game is already playable which means we can now all hate him and start getting excited for a relatively imminent release.
Personally I’m hoping the new franchise will be a next generation exclusive as the new power of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One could open up an entirely new play style for one of the best franchises in the industry.
BioWare have already confirmed that the next game won’t be carrying on with Shepherd but I do wonder if the game will pick up from your previous achievements or trophies to change the experience in some way?
Okay I have a confession to make, I’ve never played through the franchise myself. I just haven’t had the time to dedicate to the immense storyline and every month brings a brand new game into my backlog and right now I just can’t ever see myself getting to it.
Should I be shot for this? Is the franchise really that good?
