Mass Effect 4 Will Use Frostbite Engine

Bioware has just confirmed that the next instalment of the highly regarded Mass Effect franchise will use DICE’s Frostbite engine. Details on the game are fairly scarce as expected, and it isn’t yet known whether the game will be for current generation consoles, or next generation consoles. BioWare Montreal studio director Yanick Roy had the following to say about Mass Effect 4.

The game “will be built with the amazing technology of Frostbite as its foundation” and that it will be “enhanced by many of the systems that the Dragon Age III team has already spent a lot of time building.”

The game “will be very respectful of the heritage built over the course of the first three games,” but that “with the original trilogy now concluded and the switch over to a new engine, we are exploring new directions, both on the gameplay and story fronts.” However, “you can still expect the pillars the franchise is known for to be fully intact, including diverse alien races, a huge galaxy to explore, and of course rich, cinematic storytelling.”

        1. Hello, my name is Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo. I like to ask many questions and I have one for you:
          Who’s your Daddy?

  1. Well its not really Mass Effect 4 as such, its a new game.
    I hooe you can choose from multiple species in this game. Playing the campaign as a Krogan would be awesome.
    Also hope they add the multiplay again, but make it alot bigger

    1. Let’s hope that ME3 on wiiu doesn’t sell like dogshit because of the trilogy elsewhere and then EA uses that as an excuse to somehow not put ME4 on wiiu :/.

      When Zombiu has shifted 3 million units , they will have no excuse :)

      1. You know that’s exactly what’s going to happen. When ME3 doesn’t sell well on Wii U, they’ll use that as an excuse to fuck over Nintendo fans in the future for something that was their own fault.

        1. So annoying. Then some bitch ass will release a statement saying ”We put ME3 special edition on wiiu and it only sold 100 thou even though it had some superflous touch screen controlls and offered no way near the value of the trilogy. We feel Nintendo fans are more 6 year old and we will ignore the Millions of copies of ZombiU sold.”.

          Fucking ass wipes. It’s a little ploy buy EA to try and take their focus away from wiiu becuase they’re butthurt and want to focus on the platforms they feel safe with.

          Maybe if they put some effort into their games for US they can sell like Nintendo’s first party games do anywhere up to 35 million copies.

    1. Hey, the multiplayer on ME3 is pretty decent, i actually wish they spent more time on it rather than the story, seeing as its basically one game mode over and over

  2. I’m still on the fence on whether or not to get Mass Effect 3 on Wii U because of the HD collection. If ME 4 comes to Wii U I will definitely get it. At this point I’m starting to doubt it though.

    1. Just get the collection. As much as I love the wii u $60 for one game or $60 dollars for the same game and 2 more makes sense. If the game sells bad its EAs fault

  3. Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U is more of a treat rather than an intentional plan to put Mass Effect franchise on Nintendo consoles, so don’t expect the next game to appear on the Wii U just because 3 was on it. Mass Effect 3 was not originally a Nintendo thing, and Mass Effect 3 alone does not justify this super sense of entitlement you guys are having with regards to another Mass Effect game on the Wii U.

  4. i see so many comments about if this game dosent sell well on wii u than its all ea and bio ware fault. truth is nintendo fanboys and girls are really just Japanese gamers period so anything made in the west and has very high popularity they single the game out like for example call of duty. because the game is released every year people say it sucks cause its the same game when u can release mario over and over and over again with the same bullshit story peach invites mario to the castle and bowser kidnap her mario saves her and u know the rest. im starting to really not understand my fellow nintendo fans but hey it is what it is.. but im buying mass effect 3 on wii u because i played a bit of it on 360 and i kinda stopped playing it cause i sold my xbox to get a wii u…oh and for people who hate ea for not making games for the WII its really nintendo fault.

    1. How the fuck is Nintendo’s fault, hypocrite? Just because their old game system cannot handle games that are released on their rival consoles, doesn’t automatically mean it’s Nintendo’s fault for bringing third party AAA titles to their new console. Don’t blame Nintendo just because EA had to help them in creating an improved gaming online structure (Nintendo Network). Don’t blame Nintendo for mimicking Xbox 360 graphics. Don’t blame Nintendo just because they were the FIRST to use a touchscreen pad on their new controller. And do not put the blame on Nintendo just because they want to make a powerful game console at very reasonably lower price.

      1. dude serously nintendo said it there selves the wii could have been hd but hd TVs wasent at the rate its at now besides who is bing a hypocrite or do u even know what that is and who the fuck said something about nintendo mimicking 360 graphics the wii u is powerful than 360 and second who said something about a toutch pad and i didnt say nothing about EA helping nintendo with there online service so take you hand put it on your neck and chock your self. NOW what i was saying is people blame EA for not porting there games over to the wii when the wii didnt even have the horse power to run some of there games so why blame EA. i actually love EA games because i grew up playing them on snes till now. if u dont think EA likes nintendo look at the gamecube era EA activision ubisoft was all over that fuckin system and gamecube seemed to be even more powerful than the stupid ass wii in my opinion. the sad part is u can actually cover for nintendo when they them selves abandon the core gamers for party games and bullshit shovel ware so like i said choke your self.

        1. You’re telling me that you’re dick riding the WORST video game company in America. You’re not even a fucking gamer yourself, hypocrite Wade. Why the fuck are you typing at a dedicated Nintendo blog site?

          1. first off i dont even know what a gamer is now days idk if its people who loves games for what they are or people who love games because of what developer its made by. second i love nintendo and honestly every gen i have owned a nintendo system first b4 any other console from nes to wii u. im not dick riding EA but there not a bad game company they have some of the best games from dead space to battlefield and the sims maddens ect and i find them to be really good games. and like i said b4 nintendo made the decision to make the wii less powerful than its rivals not EA activision ubisoft capcom ect. and seriously bro ur acting like a child with these uneducated comments about me dick riding.

              1. Wade let me tell you something what company took the James Bond Franchise from RARE and ended up killing the fking franchise in EVERY SINGLE GAME THEY MADE OF IT huh?

                yeah thats right EA did EA FKED UP Bond like a BOSS just look at Goldeneye and then look at the games of bond after it.

                EA FKING SUCSK!

    2. The game wont sell well because you can get the trillogy which includes the same game and the first 2. It is completly EAs fault
