Bioware reveals new Mass Effect game coming to the iPhone

Spin-off game entitled Mass Effect: Jacob's Story will be exclusive to the iPhone

It was revealed last Friday that Mass Effect 2, the sequel to Bioware's highly successful Mass Effect, will have a spin-off game entitled Mass Effect: Jacob's Story that will be exclusive to the iPhone. Details reveal that the game will work as a back story for Mass Effect 2's main protagonist: Jacob.

"We were going to announce this, but one of the testers at a focus testing group broke the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and things were revealed before we had the chance," said BioWare community manager Chris Priestly on the company's forums.

As revealed by the leaked survey, the character named Jacob is a "biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization's greatest beacon of hope."

The gameplay itself will be a top-down shooter and will include two hours of animated, story-driven content in a cartoony art style. When released, the price for the game is expected to be around US$2.99.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
