Excited about a PS3 port of Mass Effect 2? So are we, and in ways we’re not quite comfortable telling you about. But what’s BioWare going to pack in there with the game? Sit back and we’ll tell you.
According to an interview with BioWare honcho Ray Muzyka via VG247, the PS3 version of the game will come packed in with DLC that’s already available for the 360 original, a retooled version of the Cerberus Network to inform you of new goodies to download, and a new introduction sequence to get the Sony faithful caught up on what’s crackin’ across the Mass Effect universe.
“So even though it’s Mass Effect 2 specifically, we’re making sure there’s a nice introduction experience that provides the back-story and the things that have happened up to that point in the universe, and makes it a really seamless introduction.”
What could this new intro be, then? Muzyka didn’t spill it. “It’ll be something that provides a good introduction,” he says, “and provides a lot of the back-story and introduces you well to the story-arc, and kind of makes you feel like you’re part of it all.”
So what do you think? A new, controllable flashback sequence? A long voice-over showing a map of the galaxy? Pillow talk between Garrus and a female Shepard? Don’t worry, we can go on and make it weirder if you want.
