Here are some (horrible quality) photos of the Mass Effect 4 spread in the most recent issue of Official XBox Magazine

Key points:

  • “…the next Mass Effect is gunning for an altogether more tangible scale…”
  • “the new game’s planetary maps will be large enough to encompass a number of cities a piece, and "hundreds of hours” of roaming.“
  • "There are at least two new alien species, one of whom resides on a jaggedy, volcanic planet, the other in a fragrant paradise. Rumor has it that the first lot are skeletons with glowy eyes, while the second bunch resemble golems.”

Very exciting stuff (✿◠‿◠)
