Electronic Arts and Bioware have today officially announced the sequel to Mass Effect, which is set for release on PC and Xbox 360.
In the second part of the planned trilogy, following the defeat of Saren’s Geth army, humankind faces a threat greater than anything it’s seen before.
“We’re going to surpass the extraordinary gaming experience we brought our fans in Mass Effect by delivering intensified combat and expanded weapon options as well as increased depth of planet exploration, all while delivering a powerful, emotionally engaging story,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Bioware CEO and EA VP.
“Mass Effect 2 is shaping up to be an unforgettable RPG-shooter experience, taking players on a non-stop roller-coaster ride filled with stunning plot twists and no-holds-barred action.”
The game is due for release on PC and Xbox 360 in early 2010.
