Epic’s Mark Rein has said Mass Effect 3 will be using Unreal Engine 3, like the previous two games in the series.

Speaking to Develop on the news, he said: “BioWare chose UE3 for the Mass Effect trilogy because they wanted to make an immersive third-person perspective shooter game with sci-fi environments.

“We have a great working relationship with Epic from both the development and licensee perspective, and we’re continually pleased with how they keep their game engine technology competitive, which helps us deliver the excellent quality games that EA customers expect,” further added EA Partners SVP, David DeMartini.

Mass Effect 3 was announced as being in development at BioWare last week, following the release of ME2 back in January.
