Mass Effect fans eager for more information about the next Mass Effect game don't have much longer to wait. Thanks to the San Diego Comic-Con schedule recently coming online, we now know that BioWare will hold a panel on Saturday, July 26, where developers from the company's offices in Edmonton and Montreal will discuss their vision for the game.
The panel, "Charting a Course: Designing the Next Mass Effect," will be led by lead animator Carl Boulay, senior artist Noel Lukasewich, community manager Jessica Merizan, and producers Mike Gamble and Fabrice Condominas. The panelists will, according to the official description, "share their experiences in shaping the next Mass Effect game with new possibilities while staying true to the critically acclaimed series."
If you're attending Comic-Con in person, you can sit it on the panel (if you can find a seat!) on Saturday, July 26, at 2 p.m. in Room 25 ABC. The most recent update BioWare provided on the next Mass Effect game came during E3 in June, when the developer teased that the game will feature an entirely new set of characters, and will be set in a new region of the universe. The studio also laid out its bold plans for the game.
"We think fans of the series are going to be surprised at just how far we're going," a BioWare developer says about the game in the video above.
Though Comic-Con might be most associated with movies, TV, and...comics, games will be there, too. In addition to BioWare's Mass Effect panel, there will be talks from Ubisoft about Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4, as well as presentations by Microsoft for Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo: Nightfall. A new Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gameplay video will also be on display at Comic-Con, alongside the first-ever Super Smash Bros. 3DS tournament.
