Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Morality System Won’t Be as Clear Cut as the Original Trilogy’s

Published

 on

Mac Walters, creative director at Bioware, has revealed that the morality system for Mass Effect: Andromeda will be aiming for more of a grey-scale morality system rather than measuring your actions with Paragon/Renegade points.

Speaking with GamesRadar+, Walters commented how the new system is part of Bioware’s desire to “[look] for other ways to engage more of those shades of grey; less about it being obviously being right or wrong and more about giving people a sense of choice.” He elaborates on his reasoning behind the shift, saying “I think in general, with all this sophistication of games or engaging in any kind of entertainment right now, [gamers are] looking for more of those shades of grey.”

If there’s the warning bell going off hearing this, as you’re concerned a new morality system wouldn’t mesh well with who Shepard is, it seems Andromeda is Bioware’s attempt to break away from the original trilogy. Not only will it feature a new protagonist, Ryder, but the new Mass Effect wouldn’t be registering your old save files. True to prior announcements of the narrative, Mass Effect: Andromeda will be it’s own fresh tale in a fresh universe along with its own fresh outlook.

Will it be possible to measure such an abstract concept as grey-scale morality in a meaningful way? You’ll have to find out when Mass Effect: Andromeda hits PS4, Xbox One and PC in Q1 2017.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
