BioWare Reveals New Mass Effect 3 Character

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
In a story so good that our Twitter Feed couldn't hold it (you do follow us, don't you?), the Executive Producer of Mass Effect 3, Casey Hudson, tweeted out a picture of a new character for the upcoming trilogy finale.

Meet James Vega, a human Systems Alliance soldier.

The "role" of Vega is to step into the shoes of gamers who might not be familiar with the Mass Effect franchise. With that in mind, expect him to ask a lot of questions and be given a lot of answers... answers that you'll probably know if you've played Mass Effect or Mass Effect 2.

While the immediate feedback for Vega was/is pretty negative from gamers, Hudson sent out a tweet this morning that explains BioWare's feelings on the character:

Enjoyed your first impressions of Vega! We have fun with our ensemble casts: chars are designed to be loved by some players but not all.
Mass Effect 3 is slated for a March 6th, 2012 release in the United States and a March 9th release in the UK.
