Mass Effect 3 to feature over 1000 story variations

Storyline to branch like never before

Bioware's Casey Husdon has been outlining some of the technical points of Mass Effect 3.

Hudson explained to the penultimate issue of UK magazine PC Zone about their method of story-planning.

Hudson said: "We plan out the larger plot points of the story from one game to the next, but it would be impossible to plan it all in advance."

He continued: "More importantly, we'd never be able to plan as many creative opportunities if we'd do it all up front. Instead, we record what a player has done in a play-through, and then we have all of those choices available that writers can refer to as they build storylines. Numerically, it's over 1,000 variables that we'll have access to for shaping the Mass Effect 3 experience for people who've played the previous games."

Thanks CVG.
