Mass Effect 4 is “fresh yet recognisable” and already playable, says Bioware

Bioware has confirmed the next Mass Effect game is already in a playable condition and is coming along well.

According to Bioware General Manager Aaryn Flynn, Bioware is very pleased with the progress of Mass Effect 4 after a successful internet play test this week.

Flynn took to Twitter to tease fans with the new information on the highly anticipate Mass Effect 3 sequel.

“Great time playing the next Mass Effect game in Montreal. Ambitious. Beautiful. Fresh but recognisable. And fun”, tweeted Flynn.

Unfortunately the tweet was accompanied by nothing more than a picture of the Bioware logo on a PC screen, with a rather familiar looking Mass Effect planetscape floating behind.

Could this be the opening credits for the game? Probably not, but it’s certainly made us more eager to get our hands on the next chapter of the Mass Effect story.

Bioware released some Mass Effect 4 teaser pictures in early November on Twitter, which actually gave us very little information about the upcoming game.

Mass Effect development was moved to Bioware Montreal, as the original developer, Bioware Edmonton, is now working on a brand new IP.
