Details on the highly anticipated BioWare title, Mass Effect 4 have leaked on Reddit. The source comes from the user, [Deleted] which claims he received this information from taking a survey. Note, Dragon Age: Inquisition leaked the same way.
Take all the details with a grain of salt. Nothing is confirmed. But if you are one of those people that don’t want any tidbits before BioWare announces it, do not read any further. You have been warned.
In the post on Reddit the document touches on where the game takes place, players motives and who are main antagonists for the next trilogy. The article also claims that the universe sector you explore is three times the size of Mass Effect 3 with over 100 planets.
Some details that come to no surprise are the fact you’ll be exploring with another ragtag squad that consists of seven members. Your confrontations in battle and conversations outside will determine how strong your relationships are with these characters. Cora is one member that has the ability to deploy biotic shield to protect everyone in some sort of force field bubble. Details on the other six have yet to be released.
There are also hints about strike team missions that are split into two different types of modes. One called is called Deployed Strike Team Missions, and the other Active Strike Team Missions. Deployed Strike Team Missions will require the player to send out mercenaries defend your land from randomly generated enemies in time sensitive battles while you continue the main campaign. Active Strike Team missions take a different route, by allowing the player to take the fight online without the aid of their strike team. You can select from the Multiplayer roster of characters or tackle them yourself. In it, you’ll be tasked with random objectives that will randomly generate every time, thanks to Mass Effects 4 new horde mode. Be it defending a settlement, or recovering artifacts off a planet before gang of outlaws retrieve it makes this mode exciting.
The Multiplayer “Horde” mode is what you’d expect from that title. You and three friends are up against waves of enemies on various battlefields across the galaxy. Objectives will be thrown in there to force you to play as a team to take down the alien forces. This mode will also allow your APEX funds to transfer over to the single player campaign.
But probably the most intriguing rumour in the document is the game that prides itself in very rich dialogue and player involvement is going one step further with “action based choices.” Where in previous entries you had to try to entice or change the course of action in that moment by simply talking, you can pull out your gun now to impose your will on them instead.
We have reached out to EA but have received no comment as of yet. We’ll update this story as it develops.
