The social networking website has seen a number of tweets relating to the upcoming DLC for Mass Effect 3 and we take a look at what they might mean.
Mass Effect 3 has been one of the bigger series on this current generation of consoles. Originally released for Xbox 360, the first game made huge waves in gaming circles. The third-person shooter, choice based, RPG was unique on the platform and Microsoft hailed it as one its premier exclusives.
The sequel soon followed and received much more of the same critical acclaim and financial success. EA had a new franchise on their hands and saw the potential of taking the series multiplatform, which they did with the third game.
However, PlayStation 3 users were yet to get their first taste of the Mass Effect series and EA had a little treat in store for them. The publisher announced that Mass Effect 2 would be released on the PlayStation 3 but on the new engine. That meant that the Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 would be built on the same engine as Mass Effect 3.
Bioware then showed off the third game at E3 and the hype, for some, was unbearable. However, when the game finally released, it disappointed a great number of fans who expected their choices and decisions from throughout the series to have more of an impact on the three different endings a player could unlock.
Mass riots and protest ensued on the internet before Bioware released a DLC with new endings to rectify the issues.
As it turns out there is more coming from Bioware in the way of Sam Shepard’s adventures in the Mass Effect universe. The next game in the series may start a new protagonist but there is still some Sam Shepard to be had before then.
The developers and voice actors of the game have taken to twitter to tease the fans of the series and this is what they had to say.
Caroline Livingstone, the director and producer of the voice over work tweeted: “@SethGreen Thank you for yet another fantastic session. And thank you for being such a kind person.”
Seth Green is the Normandy pilot, Joker, and that tweet seems like a bit of a goodbye.
Lastly, was Sam Hulick, the composer for the series, who teased, “What I’m up to lately: working on an unannounced Mass Effect 3 DLC.” Before continuing, “Tossing in piano and muted strings for this one particular piece.” And finally dropping the biggest teaser, “High potential for tears.”
I think it is safe to say someone is going to die in this DLC.
