All that data must hold something good…right?
Here’s some interesting news that’s not quite news for those of you who, like me, are avid fans of the Mass Effect universe and all things tied to it. A recent tweet from one Chris Wynn, who is Senior Development Director over at Bioware Montreal, reads “Copying the latest Mass Effect build to my computer to play. Windows is telling me “about 1 day” to copy it. There is a lot in there.”
Why is that news? Well a huge file size can mean a number of things. It can mean a huge amount of content, or a very, very dense game world. It can mean the game is available in many languages, it can mean that textures aren’t compressed (which is how it should be by the way). Really, it just means that there’s a lot of stuff floating around, which hopefully points to a thriving development environment for the game.
Mac Walters, the games Creative Director also recently tweeted, “Heading back to YEG after a great week in MTL. The whole team is pushing hard before the holidays, and it shows. Looking better every day.” That’s good news for us ME addicts out there!
