Jade Empire Sequel Confirmed, Mass Effect Details
11.11.05 - 8:37 PM

According to an interview with Xbox Evolved, Ray Muzyka has confirmed that a sequel to Jade Empire is in the works.

"BioWare definitely plans to continue the Jade Empire franchise – the Jade team did a great job with the first game in that series; we have great teams working on all of our games here," said Muzyka, "We've also said in the past that we’re working on not just one, but two Xbox360 titles. Enough said ;)"

The interview also goes on to reveal some details about Mass Effect, BioWare's upcoming Xbox 360 Action-RPG.

Mass Effect, like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, will allow the player to control the main character and his two squadmates. Players will be able to directly control any of the three party members and will be able to issue commands about his allies' fighting styles.

BioWare also stated that they were going for much more customization in Mass Effect. "Right from character creation in ME, where the player has detailed control over his or her character's facial features, it is apparent Mass Effect is first and foremost a solid role playing game," stated Muzyka, "In addition to physically choosing and customizing the lead character in the game, Mass Effect allows for tremendous character customization via traditional role playing game features like the player's physical representation reflecting the character's equipment at any given time and via control over the character's stats, choice of character class and assignment of unique powers."

Thanks to the folks at Xbox Evolved for the great interview.
