Mass Effect - PC Interviews @ CVG, BioWare
BioWare's Matt Atwood is hitting the campaign trail hard for the PC "conversion" of Mass Effect with a new interview on offer at CVG:
Is Mass Effect on PC the definitive version of the game?
Matt Atwood: I don't know if I'd say it's the definitive version. I think both versions were constructed really well for the platforms they're on. But I do think the PC version really adds some things that are nice. Higher-resolution visuals? That's exciting.
I love the individual squad command. If you play with the individual squad control, it's a deeper tactical game - it has more impact than I think people realise. As is the hot keys for the biotic powers. You can really play it more action style.
It'll have the achievement system just like the Xbox 360 version did - we'll be hosting that on our servers. That's just another fun part to make sure you've done all the elements of the game.
You've just released the Bring Down the Sky content for Mass Effect on Xbox 360. Is that being included out-the-box with the PC version?
Atwood: We're still working on what we'll include as far as additional content. Of course we'll have more 360 downloadable content on the way and we're working on what content we want for the PC as well. So will that be Bring Down the Sky? We don't know yet.
Also, BioWare themselves have a new podcast (direct link, .mp3) on offer to discuss Mass Effect for the PC and Bring Down the Sky with development team members.
