Mass Effect 2 Officially Announced

Freakin’ Win.qu

Anyone who’s ever played a BioWare game knows that when you get in on their games, you get story, story, story. Mass Effect was no slouch in this category.

That alone is reason enough to get hyped up for BioWare’s official Mass Effect 2 announcement. I can’t wait to see what they do with the speech system this time around.

The sequel is already looking up for 360 owners, as saves from the first title can be imported into the new game. Unfortunately for PlayStation 3 owners though, the second part of the trilogy will only be released on the Xbox 360 and PC.

To make up for missing it the first time, here’s the announcement trailer followed by the press release.


The Dark Second Chapter to the Epic Science-Fiction Trilogy

– Coming Early 2010 for Windows PC and Xbox 360

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – March 17th, 2009 – Leading video game developer BioWare™, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today officially announced Mass Effect™ 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the multi award-winning 2007 hit, Mass Effect. The Mass Effect trilogy is a masterful science fiction adventure set in a vast universe filled with dangerous alien life forms and mysterious uncharted planets. In this dark second chapter, Saren’s evil army of Geth soldiers has just been defeated, and humans, who are still struggling to make their mark on the galactic stage, are now faced with an even greater peril…

“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, General Manager and CEO, BioWare and General Manager and Vice President, EA. “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.”

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
