What’s this? Vague hints about Mass Effect 3? Sound the alarms! If I learned anything from yesterday’s rumor about the franchise getting multiplayer in some capacity, it’s that you folks love to chat about this series — and beyond that, I love reading your thoughts, even if they are sometimes out of control.
OXM caught up with BioWare’s Casey Hudson, who you’ll probably recognize as BioWare’s main dude for all things Mass Effect. He’s the guy who drops hints in interviews. Take the following remarks, for example:
“The second story in a trilogy is where you traditionally end up in a fairly dark place. The third story is where you try and bring some fun and lightness back into it,” says Hudson.
“One thing we tried to do with Mass Effect 2 was as well as bringing in the more mature stuff, we also tried to bring in a lot more humor so that we can go to these places without making it an overbearing experience. I think we have a lot more fun this time through characters like Joker and EDI.”
Continuing, he says that “Mass Effect 3 is going to be the epic conclusion … so, a lot more darkness but also a lot more humor.” There you have it, guys. It’s way too early to reasonably comment on this stuff, but since when has that ever stopped us?
