4 Things We Learned About Mass Effect 4 At Comic-Con
The Main Character Is HumanBioWare has said over and over that Mass Effect 4 won't star Commander Shepard. The new hero will, however, be human again. Consider your fantasies of a Garrus-led game crushed.
During the panel discussion, the studio showed off renders of the character clad in N7 armor. N7 is an Alliance military designation for the most highly-trained special forces members. Shepard was N7 and so is, apparently, our hero.
The hero of Mass Effect 4 will have another thing in common with Shepard: they'll be designed by the player. They can choose the character's gender and presumably the rest of their appearance as well.
"It's ingrained in us to give players as much choice as possible," said producer Mike Gamble.
