It’s no secret. Nobody outside of Bioware really knows anything about Mass Effect 4, it’s quite possibly the only reason I’ll be watching the EA press conference at E3 this year.  So imagine my surprise when I find out that Bioware staffer Jos Hendriks starts tweeting about how difficult the combat is.

Providing you play the game like a sane person, the series has always been a little easy, even on harder difficulties. But with Jos saying, “Well that combat certainly works. I just got my ass handed to me,” I think we might be able to look forward to something with a bit more meat on its bones.

He went on to say, “I hope the people reviewing my mission in the coming days know their stuff, because these combats are no joke.” Those of us that love the dialogue between team members in the game are hopefully also in for a treat. Jos stated, “After fixing a bunch of problems the other day, today I re-double efforts to get some banter and combat implemented.”

Mass Effect 4 is expected to be shown at this year’s E3, however this is not confirmed yet. What are your thoughts on this article? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I hope it forces strategy to be a factor in overcoming difficulty. Some of the level designs in previous iterations were fantastic and well balanced. They should design levels to compensate for different class types/styles.

    ME2 and ME3 had certain levels that were tough on harder difficulty levels. Horizon in ME2 was tough. Kia Lang battles were tough in ME3, especially the one at the Illusive Man’s office. The final battle with the Banshees was hard, too. But, I played those levels before I tried ME3 multi-player. After 800 hours of ME3 MP, I think those levels would be easier. I’m really excited for ME4 multiplayer, now. Maybe that’s why the ME4 single-player difficulty is harder. Many more people will be playing multiplayer, and their skills will be honed.

    Mass Effect to on Insanity was quite difficult, but I had fun getting through it. I hope Mass Effect 4 is challenging, but still fun to play.
