Mass Effect 4 Continued from where?

★★★★★ Newbie

Hey guy as we have the Legendary Edition of the Original Trilogy in a couple weeks and it has been answered that people will still have the option to play the non-Legendary Edition where does that leave Mass Effect 4 regarding how we continue on the story? As a PC player I assume the choices we make from 1,2,3 will still impact our story in ME4.

 

2 Questions very similar in topic pop into my head from this.

 

1. Will our progress and choices transfer from our Original Trilogy play throughs to the new Legendary Edition?

2. Will our choices be available from either version of the Trilogy when we do get to Mass Effect 4?

The answer to your first qestion is here.

 

For your second qestion, the new Mass Effect game is only announced, there is practically no info available about this game, that includes if it will use character import or not.

Mass Effect Andromeda = Mass Effect 4

 

Mass Effect 5 is the next game (both the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy were shown in the recent teaser which BioWare have explicitly said was totally intentional).

 

Now we get into guesswork.

 

I don't expect there will be any form of game 'upload' - games sit on multiple platforms, it's just too difficult.

 

It's possible that some form of prologue with choices being indicated may set the scene of what's happened in the past.

 

Or it could be that so many years have passed that the past is effectively irrelevant - I'm expecting ME5 to be set some hundreds of years beyond ME3.

Interesting. I had expected ME5 to fall within the lifetime of MEA characters but perhaps it will be even later.

 

It's all guesswork for now... Wondering

I agree with you, it must be in the lifetime of the longer living ME3 characters, we saw Liara, so it should be in the lifetime of the MEA characters.

 

@ThandalNLyman Why do you think it will be hundreds of years after Andromeda? Wondering

'Cuz I'm like Peebee; always looking for the "new", not the "been there/done that".

 

And (based on the ME3 Epilogue slides and depending on your exact decision at the end) the post-Reaper Milky Way (even after the 600 years of the MEA voyage) looks like it would be pretty much the same as the pre-Reaper one.

 

Far more interested in learning more about the Scourge, the Kett, the Jardaan, and Ryder-1. Nerd

I don't know about that, 600 years + is a long time. Wink

For Humans, maybe, (and Salarians!)  But one definitely gets the impression that Asari and Krogan cultures don't really change much over a century-or-two.

 

And as I said, I'd be more interested in the Jardaan than what Matriarch Liara is up to.
