BioWare Won't Be Skimping On ME3's Single-Player
With all the rumors circulating about the possibility of multiplayer in Mass Effect 3, the hardcore fans are a touch concerned.
Thing is, role-playing games like Mass Effect are about the story and the characters, and not about multiplayer gaming. The latter might be a nice addition to the formula but if it's a particular focus, and BioWare sacrifices that which makes this franchise great, the followers will be severely irritated. Not everything requires multiplayer these days. But project director Casey Hudson has recently left a Twitter update that should pacify the skeptical:
"Like Ray said, we evaluate lots of tech/designs but as you saw at E3 we're focused on the best SP experience in the series."
See, that's what we're looking for right there- "the best single-player experience in the series." That's what these games are about. Sometimes, we wonder why developers replace tried-and-true formulas (the very formulas that get them their fans) with experimental things, or features designed to appeal to a "wider audience."
Why "replace?" Why not just add? It seems BioWare is going to do just that, though: add.
