Mass Effect 4 Won’t Deal With Shepard at All

Mass Effect
BioWare

We don’t know much about the next Mass Effect trilogy, but BioWare has confirmed once again it is ready to move beyond the story of Commander Shepard.

In an interview with Complex, Mass Effect writer Mac Walter talked a bit about what to expect from Mass Effect 4, and its subsequent sequels.

“Well, I can’t get into details, but the idea is that we have agreed to tell a story that doesn’t relate necessarily to any of the Shepard events at all, whatsoever,” Walter said. “Beyond that, that’s what we’ve been deciding for awhile. But throughout it all, one of the key things is that it has to be Mass Effect. It can’t just feel like a spin-off. It has to feel like a Mass Effect game at its heart, at its core. Just without the Shepard character or the Shepard specific companions.”

Considering the first trilogy completed the story of Shepard’s battle to save the galaxy from the Reaper menace, we’re not all that surprised by the news. There’s an entire universe out there to explore, and BioWare is clearly ready to look elsewhere for its protagonist and story inspiration. We eagerly await more details on just who or what the next game will focus on, and can only hope the next three games are as memorable and rich with characters as the first three games.
