Footage of BioWare’s cancelled Mass Effect First Person Shooter
The Mass Effect universe almost got a first-person, multiplayer online shooter. Mass Effect Team Assault was to be a standalone, online-only blend of Unreal Tournament and Battlefield 1943 set in the Mass Effect universe.
“For four months after the completion of Mass Effect 2, the Montreal studio worked on a top-secret prototype that carried the working name Mass Effect Team Assault or META,” Keighley writes in his 15,000-word exploration of the making of the Mass Effect universe and its popular games. “The goal was simple: to create a standalone multiplayer experience in the Mass Effect universe that would mix the play styles of Unreal Tournament and Battlefield 1943 – and likely be released as a downloadable game.”
