The Joker‘s role will be handled by Troy Baker. His previous works include Booker DeWitt from BioShock Infinite, Snow from Final Fantasy XIII, Kai Leng from Mass Effect 3, Vincent from Catherine, and more.
In addition to that, the screenshots have also been released alongside the game’s box art.
Bioware has picked up two developers responsible for Kingdoms Of Amalur to join in on the development of the next Mass Effect game. Colin Campbell and Ian Frazier, who served as lead world designer and lead designer respectively, will be working on the upcoming game. Their new titles are lead level designer and lead gameplay designer respectively.
How do you feel about this news?
An infographic of Mass Effect 3 has been released. In the infographic we find out that 64% of all of the players did not actually meet Wrex in the Mass Effect 3 campaign. How can you?! He’s awesome! Interestingly enough, 82% played a male Shepard, and only a small 18% played as a female Shepard. 27% choose to save the quarians, 27% choose to save the geth. 36% choose to save both races. Check out more of the infographic below:
“We are starting to get ready to develop another Mass Effect game and it’s going to be a new thing,” Hudson said. “We want to be able to give fans an opportunity to get back into the world with these things you’ve come to know and love about the Mass Effect experience, but start something fresh and new; a new way for you to explore the whole universe in Mass Effect.”
It was also under the PAX East presentation that Hudson confirmed that the Mass Effect movie with Legendary Pictures remains in production. Despite the confirmation, no casting or release date has been announced.
“Hopefully it should be seen as a good thing,” Hudson said of the movie. “Because what we’re looking at are, I think, the right things to make sure it’s going to be great. It’s not just going to be a movie. It’s going to be really special.”
Lastly GameSpot reports that Hudson announced a new IP.
“That’s kind of our next thing. We’re focusing on delivering something new, the way we did at the very beginning of Mass Effect,” Hudson said.
My name is Jonathan Warner; I’m the Senior Producer on the Mass Effect franchise. I joined the Mass Effect Team when we launched ME3 and our Multiplayer Service and it has been a wonderful, wild ride!
It has been our pleasure to run and support this service for over a year now and provide the maps, kits, gear, and weapons that we all love. I wanted to thank everyone who played Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer, and participated in our challenges and events. You have made working on it a real pleasure.
After a solid year of dedicated service, we are now turning our attention to new projects and endeavors, but Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer will live on. Our challenge system and N7 HQ will be maintained and looked after.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you online!
The story of the comic book is still a mystery, but it’s quite a big possibility it’s not going to be about Commander Shepard.
Among the questions we find just how you’ll be able to access the DLC along with why there’s two files to download via Xbox Live to the Xbox 360. The FAQ contains spoilers. You can read the FAQ here.
The final Mass Effect 3 DLC will reunite you with your companions one last time.
The single player DLC, titled “Citadel”, is said to thrust you right back into the DLC where you’re tasked with solving a mystery conspiracy which is targeting Shepard. Among the returning cast we find Urdnot Wrex.
When the adventure is over, reconnect with your favorite characters from the Mass Effect Trilogy, try your luck at the Citadel’s Silver Coast Casino, blow off steam in the Armax Combat Arena, or explore and furnish Shepard’s own living quarters on the Citadel. With unique content and cinematics featuring your friends and romance interests in the Mass Effect trilogy, Mass Effect 3: Citadel offers one final chance to see the characters you have known for years and rekindle romances.
The second DLC is titled “Reckoning” and it will be available for free.
Prepare for the Reckoning! Newfound allies join the multiplayer war for survival in Mass Effect 3: Reckoning. The Geth Juggernaut, Female Turian Raptor, Talon Mercenary, Alliance Infiltration Unit, and more take up arms to stop the Reaper threat. Smash your enemies with the Biotic Hammer as you lay waste to the battlefield as the Krogan Warlord.
Wield 7 new weapons for multiplayer, including the Geth Spitfire Assault Rifle, Venom Shotgun, Lancer Assault Rifle, and amplify your arsenal with new equipment and weapon mods featuring the Geth Scanner and Assault Rifle Omni-blade.
Side note, I’m genuinely quite upset now. Not only do we get a shitty ending to the series, now find out that we have to pay for rekindling the romance. What?! This should have been in the main game for crying out loud! BioWare. I no longer like you and if you plan to do the same towards Dragon Age 3 I think I’ll go to your Polish sibling, CD Project RED. At least there I can have my fix of good games and not being bombarded with DLCs all the time.
The release dates are March 5th for Citadel and February 26th for Reckoning. The first one will cost 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) on Xbox 360, $14.99 for PlayStation 3, and 1200 BioWare points ($15) for PC.
