Posted on February 12, 2008, Chris Mass Effect Hitting PCs in May
Given the absurdly long period of time between releases of the Halo games on Xbox and on PC, I wasn’t expecting Mass Effect till we had a new president, at the very least. But today we’ve gotten word that Mass Effect is coming to PC this May.
The game has been optimized for PC, with a new, fully customizable control scheme which will allow you to hot key biotic powers so you can avoid those pesky menus. Between the ability to hot key and higher res visuals, I’m almost sold. There’s also a new decryption mini-game and an “enhanced inventory screen” with a new GUI which hopefully means the absolutely horrendous equipment screens won’t be such a mess anymore.
It seems strange that there’s no mention of Games for Windows, achievements, or any of that stuff – makes me wonder what the future of that GFW Live platform is.
So, PC gamers: are you going to be trying out Mass Effect now that it’s headed to PC?
