BioWare Will Return to Mass Effect “At Some Point”

Bioware Mass Effect 3

BioWare general manager Casey Hudson has commented on a potential return to the Mass Effect series for BioWare, stating that the developer “[intends] to get back to it at some point.”

In a cover issue for Game Informer, Hudson described the Mass Effect series as “his baby,” whilst solidifying some already pre-established Dragon Age news. The statement was the most exciting part of the entire article, which commented upon all of BioWare’s current projects:

“I would say a majority of the people at BioWare are working on Anthem, but we do have people who are figuring out what a next Dragon Age would look like. [Mass Effect is] my baby. I helped start Mass Effect from the beginning. Of course we intend to get back to it at some point.”

BioWare is fully focused on Anthem for the time being, with the majority of the studio’s resources being spent on the project. Reading into Hudson’s comments, however, strongly implies that following Anthem‘s release, the developer will be balancing support for Anthem‘s constantly developing story and a new addition to the Mass Effect universe.

Konami Willing to Make More Remasters

Zone of the Enders Konami

Konami has said that it is willing to remaster more games if fans ask for them.

During an IGN interview at E3 about Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars, Konami brand manager Benjamin Kinney expressed the company’s willingness to produce more remasters:

“Eventually if you’re loud enough and you speak with one voice, anything is possible.”

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars is a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game featuring a new VR mode, coming to PC and PlayStation 4. The title was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Games Show in 2017.

The remaster will come native at 4K with recreated textures, updated particle effects, and new control schemes to name just a few of the many improvements across the game. The title also includes a new Very Easy mode so players can experience the story.

The most notable addition is VR support. Playing Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in VR will put the gamer in the cockpit of Jehuty, the character’s giant mecha. Konami has recreated the cut scenes and assets to contribute to an immersive situation. The developers have worked with first-party VR companies such as PlayStation VR and HTC Vive to refine the game, making it as smooth as possible to reduce any chance of motion sickness.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars has a gallery mode with VR where users can tumble and look at various models in game. The game will sport “next-gen audio,” supporting Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

The first game has not been remastered for the PlayStation 4 nor VR, but if the fans ask for it, Konami may listen.

4K and VR demos are available on the PlayStation Store to download.
