Mass Effect 3's Weapons Will Be Getting Help From DICE

I waited on a very long line a few months ago at San Diego Comic-Con, enduring sunburn and crazed fans just for the opportunity to hear more about the planned Mass Effect movie at the Legendary Pictures panel. Very few questions were answered at the time, something that the studio is aware of and has addressed in a newly posted Q&A on its website.

The revelations are minimal, but it is now confirmed that the movie won't follow the games, instead telling "a completely new story" set in the Mass Effect universe. Commander Shepard will be the focus -- the male version -- though the only casting reveal is that Seth Green won't be taking the role of Joker, the character he voices in the game series. The studio is also "working closely" with BioWare to ensure that any story changes are acceptable to fans.
