Mass Effect 3 tweaked to appeal to larger market
According to EA boss John Riccitiello, Bioware intends to make Mass Effect 3 appeal to a larger market.
Earlier today Riccitiello explained that Mass Effect 3 will boast greater mass appeal than the previous two entries in the franchise.
“One of the things that Ray Muzyuka and the team up in Edmonton have done is essentially step-by-step adjust the gameplay mechanics and some of the features that you’ll see at E3 to put this in a genre equivalent to shooter-meets-RPG, and essentially address a much larger market opportunity than Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 began to approach.”
“We’re huge believers in the IP and are purposefully shifting it to address a larger market opportunity.”
As reported earlier today, the highly anticipated sequel Mass Effect 3 has now been delayed and planned to ship sometime early 2012. Hopefully Bioware doesn’t go down the road they did with Dragon Age II, because we all know how that turned out.
