Mass Effect 2 will see you recruiting, training, and possibly shagging a brand new team of allies, in very much the same way you did with the original game. However, project director Casey Hudson has warned players that if they make certain decisions during the course of Mass Effect 2, it could have dire and bloody consequences for your friends.
"At the beginning of the game, you start to get an idea of something really scary, really dangerous, that you’re going to have to do at the very end of the game," explains Hudson. "To get ready for that you’re going to have to build up your crew, build the best team that you can, build up your ship, and then when you think you’re ready you’re gonna go in and do it.
"If you don’t do a lot of the stuff, or make the right kind of choices, the ending will be a bloodbath, and the people that you brought with you will die, and it’ll be a great ending, but it’ll be that kind of ending."
Hudson also stated that the squad you pick up this time around will be much larger than in the original Mass Effect, with some characters coming from races that previously hadn't alligned with Shepherd. You also won't be teaming up with previous squadmates, although the characters will be returning in a passive role.
It is not yet confirmed whether or not the ridiculous bouncy rubber cars will be making their own glorious return.
