As the months roll by and the industry at large gears up for another E3, one of the key players that is likely to take to the stage is BioWare’s Mass Effect 4. Other than a fleeting look at some concept art, there’s still an awful lot we don’t know about the studio’s next space-faring adventure, and how the franchise will move forward in a post-Shepherd world.
Nevertheless, while unanswered questions will continue to subsist right up until EA and/or BioWare address the crowd in June, the latter company has provided a brief update from the game’s production, confirming that motion capture has begun at TheCaptureLab in Vancouver, Canada.

By and large, EA has kept the lid on what Mass Effect 4 will revolve around. We know that the actual story itself is to be penned by the lead writer of Halo 4, and that gameplay will focus on exploration — an element that the series is renown for doing so well. As for the game’s online component, we learned just last month that BioWare had cast the net in search of an producer to craft and mould multiplayer content. It was almost a given after the success of Mass Effect 3‘s multiplayer, but it’s still exciting to think of the possibilites presented by new hardware.
Mass Effect 4 is likely still in the bowels of development, and although we fully expect a reveal at E3 in June, don’t hold your breath for a release in 2015.
