Microsoft Game Studios has just unleashed more information about its forthcoming space RPG, Mass Effect
- due for release in the UK on November 23rd.
Okay, it didn't 'unleash' it exactly, it sent a press release.
You can see the new artwork to the right and below this tale. It concerns a right weird looking character called Nihlus Kryik, which frankly sounds quite exotic to us. Here's just some of what Microsoft says about this chap:
"As a soldier, Nihlus? skills were unquestionable. His attitude, however, often got him in trouble. On several occasions, he disobeyed direct orders to do what he thought was best. Although his instincts were usually proven right, his notoriety grew. Even when he single-handedly routed an enemy patrol, and saved his squad from ambush, his commanding officers berated him for his recklessness. His military career seemed to stall before it even began."
And this is the kind of fighter you've got on your side? Sounds a bit too much of a maverick to us....
