    Considering that we're so close to Omega, it has to be something new.

    Might have some relation to this:

    Michael Gamble ‏@GambleMike Give @Sjosz a hug for putting in some much overtime lately. He's doing it for an upcoming DLC, and it's unlike anything we've done before!

    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    You missed the most important part:
    "Michael Gamble ‏@GambleMike

    @ChubbyNinja1319 @Sjosz Naw. Omega comes out on November 27th. There's no way we'd be able to still work on it! "

    I want a DLC with more Jack damnit!

    So Montreal is taking the lead on the next ME game. I'm guessing that means Edmonton will handle the new franchise they're working on.

    Edit: The new ME will apparently be built on the Frostbite engine! That could get pretty interesting.

    Already have a good feeling about it.

    ooo 27th November, cheers for all the links guys.

    Soon as you had that Mission in ME3 with Aria and she says how they were forced off Omega, I knew a DLC would have to at some stage come out regarding Taking Back Omega, didn't think it'd be No.2 (Or 3 I guess if you count the EC). Here's to hoping it's as amazing as I thought it was going to be when that Aria mission popped up on my first ME3 playthrough. And I just hope I can put the rest of ME3 (Mainly the Ending and everything absurd that connects with it) aside for long enough to just purely enjoy the DLC!

    Should be good!

    Frostbite is cool.

    Check out the previous page, there's a mod I linked to that modifies the ending (no starbrat & happy ending though there is a version with no happy ending as well).

    Original endings?

    Not gonna lie, the fact they said they're "exploring new gameplay directions" kind of worries me. I just hope it doesn't end up feeling like an entirely different game; I want a new Mass Effect game, not a new game with the name Mass Effect plastered on the cover. :/

    You mean like, a Gears of War game with Mass Effect themes?

    People have always said that but it means nothing to me, having never played or even looked at Gears of War (couldn't tell you what the game is even about to save my soul). Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3 have felt the same to me, just with improved controls. I'm fine with them tweaking the combat to improve it, I just hope they don't throw the formula out the window and turn it into a, let's say, RTS game, or a FPS, or some kind of hack-and-slash action game. I like the third person shooter style they've gotten into for Mass Effect and I hope they don't just throw it out now. No clue how the change to a new engine will affect things either as I've never played a game made on the Frostbite engine.

    Tl;dr: I'm fine with mechanic changes as long as the core of the game remains intact.

    I have hope for the Frostbite Engine, but it really isn't built for RPG's. I would have been much more comfortable if they'd said they were just sticking with the Unreal Engine, perhaps even upgrading to the Unreal Engine 4. Frostbite Engine scares me when it comes to RPG's even more then the Unreal Engine. If they were using the RED Engine i'd buy the game regardless of how much I loved or hated Mass Effect by the time the next game comes out. RED Engine was developed specifically for RPG's and is just such a fucking beast. But I guess it would just cost them to much to license it from CD Projekt compared to Frostbite which EA already has it's hands on.

    I guess we'll see how BioWare handles the adaptation of the Frostbite Engine when Dragon Age 3 comes out, because that'll most likely come before any new Mass Effect games. Unreal Engine, Frostbite, RED Engine it doesn't really matter, it just depends how well they adapt to it and mold it to the style of their game. So we'll wait and see, but I have some hope yet.

    I just hope ME4 isn't an MMO. Though I don't know that BW would be eager to jump back into the MMO genre so soon after SWTOR.
