New Mass Effect Screenshots
Mass Effect, BioWare’s action RPG for Xbox 360, still has an unknown release date, but we do have our hands on some brand new screenshots to whet your appetite. The game is said to be the first in a trilogy of games for the lifespan of the Xbox 360. The player is an elite soldier (like Halo?) and the story involves an ancient alien prophecy (um…like Halo?). Your mission is to stop a rogue agent’s advancing armies by fighting on alien worlds…. *Cough* Anyway, it’s an RPG, so that’s different.
Despite feeling to me like a bit of a biter, it’s been garnering good press and reviews, earning five awards at E3 2006:
- Game Critics Awards’ Best Role-Playing Game
- GameSpy’s Best of E3 Awards 2006: Best RPG
- 1UP.com’s Best of E3 2006: Best 360 Game
