For those who are fond of the Mass Effect series, you’ll recall how the original ME allowed players to replay the game once finished with all their abilities and items intact in a new game+. You’ll also recall that this feature was absent in Mass Effect2, where you were thrown back into the game so you could finish off side-quests and DLC you may have missed out on.
According to executive producer Casey Hudson, Mass Effect 3 will use a mixture of the two, allowing players to both replay the campaign with extra powers and tie up loose ends.
“It’s probably going to be a combination of both,” Hudson told US retail mag Game Informer. “We’re going to have a version of the post-game state that you can go back to and finish more stuff, but then we’ll have stuff you can loop back around and do in new game+. It’s a hybrid of the two”, he explained.
