Oh Mass Effect 4, you have me so terribly excited. I adore these games, despite their little flaws. Bioware gifted us a universe of totally new races that we learned to love and made them as special to us as elves and dwarves. But what lies in store for Mass Effect fans with ME 4? Where will the game take us and what planets will we see? Will our friends be there?
Naturally, the information we have on Mass Effect 4 at the moment is pretty sketchy, but these new concept art images have really conjured up some great discussions about what Bioware have planned for the universe. Let's begin by quickly refreshing our memory!
Mass Effect 4 Concept Art
I'm sure you've all seen Bioware's Mass Effect 4 E3 First Look Preview. In this they state that they are taking players to a whole new region of space and are showing us races and new characters for us to fall in love with. Yet within the release of some of these beautiful concept art pictures, players have seen locations such as The Citadel.
What does this mean? Will Bioware actually have the game set in another region of space but we then get to travel back to the old planets and locations that we loved? I don't see why not! Let me know what you think of these images in the comments Mass Effect fans!!

So what do you make of the image above? Is this the Citadel? Is this what the future of this great location will look like, or is it a completely new location modelled after it? The game would have to be set many years into the future in order for the Citadel to appear this different in comparison with the older titles. Naturally time changes things, so is this the Citadel or not?
My good lord this looks incredible!! I'm just hazarding a guess here but this certainly looks like an enemy vessel, I mean even the section of space around it looks evil! I wonder what form of villain Bioware can come up with for the next Mass Effect title. Will they be as impressive as the Reapers? It would be a difficult task for sure, but I have faith in the genius of this company. It's EA I don't trust...
Stunning. What else can you say about this location? One thing that looks remarkable on NextGen is water, whether it be rain, the sea, or small puddles; I've stopped to stare. But imagine standing on a lush planet and staring at a cascading waterfall like this. It kind of reminds me of a much cooler Naboo. Here's hoping that the game will actually meet our expectations in terms of graphics.
Ahh the Mako. How incredibly excited I was the first time I took this baby for a ride. Now it seems that we'll be venturing to some equally fascinating locations with her in Mass Effect 4. The game is certainly retaining some of its most famous aspects, but I really hope that Bioware include a whole host of new features that can rival what they designed for us before!
Dayum. Also, a location that doesn't exactly seem to be the base for the good guys. What sort of creatures will reside on a planet like this? Will their be new companions waiting for us in this (metallic?) location? I really hope Bioware include multiple playable characters actually like Dragon Age: Inquisition! That's the dream.
Please talk about this image too! I mean there is so much going on here! The environment looks like some kind of evil Grand Canyon and could this be how we look at the Star Map in Mass Effect 4? Will it be like how Ubisoft have us examining the map in The Division? Who knows, sound off in the comments friends!
