Next Mass Effect Caters to Veterans and New Players

The fourth game in the series will get newcomers up to date with previous events

The team behind the next Mass Effect game has confirmed that the new title will cater to both veterans of the franchise who completed all previous games, but also to newcomers who didn't get a chance to control Commander Shepard.

The Mass Effect trilogy has offered a great experience both in terms of gameplay and in terms of story, putting players in the shoes of Commander Shepard, a human that needs to stop a race of advanced aliens from destroying the universe.

The next game in the series will take the franchise into a new direction with a new hero but, according to BioWare Montreal boss Yanick Roy, the title will welcome both longtime fans and new ones.

While talking on Twitter, Roy confirmed that, while it's unclear just how the story of the original trilogy will be delivered to new players, the game will share with them the backstory of the universe.

What's more, he also pledged that homosexual romance options will be available to players no matter the genre of their protagonist.
