BioWare still isn't ready to reveal what the mysterious new Mass Effect game is, who it'll star, when it's set, or any of that, but has chatted a little about possible spin-offs. It did cram the fictional world full of an awful lot of detail, after all. Sadly, the mere fact ...

Field Report: Mass Effect 3 'Citadel' DLC

By Timothy J. Seppala, Mar 07, 2013 11:00am PST
