I got excited. ME is just amazing.

I hope they keep making the sandpit bigger with more toys.

I just have this feeling I won't enjoy it as much as the original trilogy - how can you get bigger than Reapers??

Hope to be proved wrong though

Need more info about the story and how it fits in with the original games.

It would need to be something pretty epic to match the original.

When I first read the title I thought it was another Mass Effect mobile game :-P

So long as I can continue to kill people for looking at me funny during my glorious renegade runs I'll be happy

haha, I see what you mean - the name is very *insert spacey name here* that many mobile games do.

It actually apes the ME3 reveal trailer to a degree.

Keen as mustard. Glad it's not a damn MMO like they originally implied.

Not sure how they're going to build a new fanbase from people who already love Shepard and co. Hope it's not another case of KOTOR where the characters in the sequel were completely overshadowed by the ones from the first.

Same here, games like ESO have completely alienated a great part of their fanbase.

There'll be the usual "fan service" for sure maybe cameo's and stuff but unless they manage to heavily tie the original trilogy to this new game I think it'll be a ME game but something different - hopefully something that won't be a shadow of that experience. Really hope they prove me wrong and make something amazing.

I don't know if anyone else ever read a series of books called Chronicles of an Age of Darknes by Hugh Cook but it had this enormous world and the characters existed in their own stories but the greater world all tied together - I'd love to see some games do this kind of thing. Kind of like Game of Thrones does for those not familiar with the above.

I don't know if the after credits scene of ME3 was anything to go by but Spoiler below, highlight to read:
it seemed to be set in the distant future. As such, any cameos I'd imagine would be passing mentions or recordings. Liara might appear as she has an extended lifespan, maybe Wrex?

I thought I read this game was some kind of prequel?
