The studio said the work was “too complicated.”
Developer BioWare says no multiplayer games are included in the upcoming game Mass Effect Legend Due to the large amount of work to be done correctly.
Project director Mac Walters said in an interview with Game Informer that people mostly play the role of story elements. It would be “too complicated” to get the multiplayer aspect to work properly.
Walters said: “I have all these analogies very early, trying to help people understand what is going to happen with this remake.”
“It’s one thing to take a 1982 Porsche that needs to be completely repaired, but now I want you to imagine that it is actually buried in concrete. So you have to solve all these problems and try something similar every time you try Stuff, “Will this still work? “Will I increase engine turnover? You know, this is just a lot of work. And I think people underestimate the feel of this game, because at every step, you will feel the painful choice: “This is what we want to spend time And really try to improve it? “Will this lead us down this path?'”
He continued: “I strongly feel that we have chosen what most fans love the most. Regarding multiplayer games, it’s really difficult. It’s another big job to make all online systems work and function properly, but At the same time, there are many other logistics involved. The economic structure is completely different. Then questions arise, such as: “Do we support it after the release? What about people who are still playing multiplayer games today? Are we trying to find a way to cross-compete between PS3 and PS4 in some way? “
“Mass Effect Legendary Edition” will be backward compatible with PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on May 14.
