BioWare has launched a fan survey asking fans to provide feedback to help make the next Mass Effect game "the best one yet." Producer Mike Gamble tweeted a link to the survey, which asks players what games they have played recently and what aspects of a new Mass Effect game they are most looking forward to. The options include Story, Exploration, Combat, and Customization. You can rank those choices from 1 (least) to 7 (most). The survey also asks you to elaborate on your choices and mention if BioWare left anything out.

The Mass Effect survey also asks how many hours you spend per week playing role-playing games and asks you to rank your top three RPG activities; options include engaging in combat, leveling up, and exploring alternative story outcomes, among others. In addition, the survey asks if you are planning to attend San Diego Comic Con (July), Gamescom (August), or PAX Prime (August-September), and if you enjoy cosplaying.

Not long after the survey was distributed last night, Gamble said BioWare has seen an "overwhelming response to the survey so far." He went on to say that he has "reading material for a month" and that he doesn't want responses to stop yet. "Keep 'em coming," he said.

If you're eager for more news about the next Mass Effect game, you don't have much longer to wait, as BioWare designers will talk about the project at San Diego Comic-Con next week. The new Mass Effect game does not have a release date yet and platforms have not been announced.

What we do know is that it leaves the story of Commander Shepard and the first three games behind. BioWare began teasing images from the new game in November 2013, and shortly thereafter we learned it is already playable. Overall, the next Mass Effect game is described as "fresh but recognizable."

I'm guessing we'll play as homosexual star child in his never ending quest to paint rainbows around the color coded map.

Stopped at 4th question, understood that I really don't care and don't want to help them.
