O… M… G! A teaser trailer for the inevitable sequel to BioWare’s (disappointing!) epic sci-fi RPG Mass Effect has finally been released. It is very short but the end will leave you thinking. Check out the video after the jump.
Ooh. So Shepard’s dead. That may mean you’ll be playing a different character this time around. A different Spectre? Maybe the second human Spectre? I don’t know but that just sounds kind of dull to me. It would be pretty sweet to play an alien. Maybe the character won’t even be a Spectre this time around. Or you could play cyborg Shepard! Maybe not. I just hope this isn’t some kind of lame stunt and it ends up being that Shepard faked his death or something. They have a chance to do something really interesting with this and it would be a huge disappointment if they drop the ball. *cough* Like they did with the first game! *cough*
The Mass Effect 2 hype train seems to be rushing steadily closer as there will also be a panel at GDC next month titled “The Iterative Level Design Process of BioWare’s Mass Effect 2″. Depending on what is revealed there I may actually get excited about the game’s purported early 2010 release.
