Development Director Shares the Goods on Mass Effect 3
If you’ve still got a candy hangover from Halloween festivities, a few fresh details on Mass Effect 3 should make for a healing infusion!
The game’s development director, Scylla Costa, has shared information and visuals on some of the new foes you’ll be facing come March 6th, 2011.
Say hello to the Banshee. Or on second thought, don’t. Just plug your ears and shoot. This fallen Asari comes with a set of lungs as strong as her name suggests, with biotic powers to boot. She may prove dangerous in groups, as Mr. Costa divulged her ability to buff others with biotic armor (think Jacob’s barrier ability).
The Guardian will offer a different challenge altogether, advancing from behind a portable shield to root you out of cover. His aggressive tactics are symptoms of the evolution of the combat in the Mass Effect franchise as a whole. Mr. Costa warns that “you need to be creative, you need to think fast, the fight is gonna be much more challenging,” all to footage of Shepard looking more agile than ever. Enough, enough!
