In 2007 BioWare released the first Mass Effect to critical and commercial success, an RPG space opera with high production values, and choice and consequences. This spawned two sequels Mass Effect 2 which saw a shift toward action and an improvement of shooter controls and Mass Effect 3 which fans panned for having an unsatisfactory ending. Despite the attempt by BioWare to alleviate tensions and address fan concerns, the future of the series was kept hush until the 2015 E3 when EA announced Mass Effect: Andromeda. What remains to be seen is will a new direction revive interest in the franchise or did Mass Effect end with Sheppard? Warning there may be plot spoilers in the story section.
