Mass Effect 4’s story will not touch upon the events of the original story in the slightest, BioWare has revealed.
Discussing the upcoming sci-fi RPG’s plot with Complex, Mass Effect 3 writer Marc Walters said, “Well, I can’t get into details, but the idea is that we have agreed to tell a story that doesn’t relate necessarily to any of the Shepard events at all, whatsoever.
“That’s what we’ve been deciding for a while. But throughout it all, one of the key things is that it has to be Mass Effect. It can’t just feel like a spin-off. It has to feel like a Mass Effect game at its heart, at its core. Just without the Shepard character or the Shepard specific companions.”
So that’s that. Mass Effect 4 truly represents a fresh start for the series, while still existing within one of the most intricately created universes in video game history. It’ll be fascinating to see what they come up with.
