Mass Effect 4 and Dragon Age 3 to Use Next-Gen Frostbite 3 Engine

Let's kick it up a notch... BAM!

BioWare's Edmonton and Montreal General Manager Aaron Flynn has revealed via Twitter that the new Frostbite 3 engine, which was just announced along with Battlefield 4, will be used for both of its major titles in development. He said:

We're using Frostbite 3 for both DA3 and the next Mass Effect. Different games, but same engine fundamentals.

Frostbite 3 is said to bring huge improvements for the engine. It will incorporate more realistic animations, shaders, effects, new weather particles, and more explosive destructible environments. In other words, it's a great candidate for the next line of BioWare titles.

What's left in question is if these titles actually embrace next-gen hardware. Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3 hit a plateau that showed their formula is aging. A new engine along with more powerful hardware could be exactly what these two series need to raise their potential.

Bioware is just picking up it's skirts and chasing after newer technology years behind everyone else.

Meh.

I'd lie if I'd say that I don't care about graphics, but the thing that would really get me excited would be a ME4 announcement! C'mon Bioware!

To heck with the graphics. I want a GOOD storyline in Dragon Age 3. Not a GARBAGE storyline like DA 2 had. I was ready to puke when I finally finished that crap game.

Bioware did a great job with DA: Origins. What the heck happened with DA 2!?

I don't expect good things, so I just won't expect good things and keep my money safe for something that really grabs me, and doesn't just grab my dick.

Why would you let Mass Effect die? Crappy endings aside, it's one of the best franchises we have today. It's long, deep, polished, it has replay value and (for me, in least) entertaining. Why would you wanna let Mass Effect perish?

Doomsday, help me on this!

They can do whatever they want, Just don't do prequels and spinoffs. Halo gets the crown for those.
TrevorOreius Mar 29 2013, 03:32 pm EDT
Well, with Mass Effect 4, I can only hope they won't fuck up the story. Same goes with DA3, that's all I'm hopin' for.
