Mass Effect 2 has “adult quality” – Syfy special [UPDATE]

Wednesday, 20th January 2010 20:31 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Update: It’s a six-parter, with the full schedule and description for each episode listed through the PR on the EA site.

Original: A Syfy Mass Effect 2 special aired in the US last night, with BioWare claiming the impending RPG has an “adult quality”.

“It’s got an adult quality,” said a team member. “Not so much with the nature of the violence or the sexuality, but with this darker treatment of the sense of conflict.”

Watch the full thing below. There’s a ton of new footage in it, and plenty of team interviews.

The game releases next Tuesday in the US and next Friday in the UK for 360 and PC.

Warning: There’s a pretty major plot spoiler at about 1.30, so beware if you’re trying to stay clean.

    I’m watching nothing. I’ve basically skipped half the stories on the site in the last week. I’ll be glad when it’s out. :-D

    The spoiler in there really is a clanger, especially if you’ve been avoiding stuff on it.

    Gamestm has reviewed this.
    10/10 apparently.
    Also, the whole ‘consequences’ from the previous game thing isn’t as big as the pre-release expectations would have allowed you to believe.

    Also… ‘Hordes of Clangers’ that’s the stuff of nightmares.

    Are they controlled by a 150ft tall Bagpuss?

    Quarians are just BioWare’s take on the Wombles.
