It’s always a highlight for me getting a behind the scenes look at the development of a video game. In the past Bioware has done similar videos during the making of the Mass Effect trilogy, and recently they released this “Building New Worlds” video featuring Lead Level Designer Colin Campbell in anticipation for the fourth Mass Effect game. While still much of Mass Effect: Andromeda remains a mystery, it’s great seeing the enthusiasm Bioware Montréal team members have for the work they’re doing.
And, of course, to say I’m excited for the next installment in the Mass Effect universe would be an understatement. I would still list the Mass Effect trilogy as my favorite all-time series of games, even with the somewhat confusing ending to Mass Effect 3. (I still firmly believe the destroy ending with high EMS is the way to go, by the way, as synthesis just doesn’t make sense given everything that transpired throughout the series, especially within the final game.) I think my favorite part of this clip with Colin Campbell is his admitting that he sometimes gets awestruck working with team members who built parts of the trilogy.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is expected to be released in late 2016. Only a year and a few months to go!
