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.
