Rumor: New BioWare game a multiplayer-focused Mass Effect

That the new BioWare game is a Mass Effect spin-off of sorts is what we figured, but it seems it’s not just another story-based adventure; “a development source” has told Kotaku that the new game tips its toes into the multiplayer waters.

It’s looking to appeal to the Call of Duty crowd, the deep throat says, with player progression similar to the Activision shooter included. The trilogy’s Commander Sheppard is said not to appear in the story mode’s lead role either, so Mass Effect 3 this is not.

Still, all rumor and speculation for now. We should know for sure early next month as the teased trailer makes its debut.
