This morning in the bustling city of New York, EA held a press conference where they announced the details of their plans for iOS. Apparently they are going to release a game called Mass Effect: Infiltrator which will tie into their upcoming game, Mass Effect 3.
This will be a iOS original game and EA claims that it will be a “fully- featured iOS third-person shooter” and feature “stunning graphics and authentic weapons and powers from the Mass Effect series“.
The story revolves around you saving prisoners from a hostile Cerberus base and by finding evidence of Cerberus’ crimes you can gain rewards which seem to be integrated with Mass Effect multiplayer. Quote:
“Every completed rescue and intelligence discovery in Infiltrator will increase a player’s Galactic Readiness rating directly through the ‘Galaxy at War’ system in Mass Effect 3.”
The major controversial feature for me is going to be the UI and the controls. I don’t doubt that the game itself will be awesome, but the implementation of the controls can make or break a game.
What do you think about the game? Are you disappointed that a full Mass Effect game hasnt been ported or feel that a iOS exclusive game is the way to go with the series. Let us know in the comments below.
