The Next Mass Effect Won’t Be Like Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Inquisition has proven a fantastic success for developer BioWare, both commercially and critically.  But now they’ve officially gone on record as saying they won’t necessarily be using that as a template for their upcoming Mass Effect title – which, despite probably not being connected to the world of Shepard, will be harkening back to its forebears more than Inquisition did.

BioWare General Manager Aaryn Flynn recently spoke on the subject, citing the fact that even though both Mass Effect 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition utilize the Frostbite Engine and open-world gameplay, many of the similarities may well stop there.

Said Flynn, “…the next Mass Effect will be (and should be) drawing on its own rich and successful past more than what DAI would say it should do. Take the Mako, something we’ve already shown in prototype form. We had that in ME1, and bringing it back is more related to a feeling that we can do it much better than we did before and fulfill the original promise of that gameplay. That has nothing to do with DAI. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that dropping the older consoles has had more impact on the overall gameplay goals of the next Mass Effect game than what DAI successfully accomplished.”

He then went on to iterate that even with the success of Inquisition, they still seek to innovate and improve with each successive title.
