News: EA confirms the epic RPG will make the jump to the PC.



EA has announced this morning that Mass Effect, the award-winning RPG developed by the recently-acquired BioWare, is coming to the PC in May.

Mass Effect for the PC will be more than a straight port as BioWare is adding plenty of new features to go along with the new platform. These features include:

  • Optimized controls designed specifically for the PC.
  • High resolution visuals ? Mass Effect for the PC features highly detailed textures, characters and environments.
  • Fully customizable controls ? PC gamers can re-map the control scheme any way they like.
  • Run & Gun Control ? Players can assign biotic powers or skills to ?hot keys' allowing them to play Mass Effect with a heavier focus on action.
  • New decryption mini-game.
  • New inventory screen GUI and functionality ? The enhanced inventory system makes it easier for players to equip and modify their weapons and armor.



    ?Mass Effect serves as a powerful example of video games as an art form, delivering new levels of emotional intensity, realistic characters and a gripping storyline ? all set in a compelling new universe,? said Ray Muzyka, General Manager, BioWare and Vice President, Electronic Arts. Frank Gibeau, President of EA's Games Label added, ?EA has struck an agreement with Microsoft to handle future publishing for Mass Effect. We are looking forward to releasing Mass Effect on the PC this Spring and brand new titles in the future.?

    We'll have more on Mass Effect for the PC soon.
