Mass Effect – one of the most important games in the history of the genre

The first part of the game “Mass Effect” debuted on the shelves of stores in 2007, rapidly gaining huge recognition among players and critics. BioWare’s work was widely praised for its momentum and ambitious, multi-faceted storyline. Two sequels from 2010 and 2012 repeated the success of the original. The game “Mass Effect: Andromeda”, released in 2017, was less popular. Work is currently underway on the fifth part of the cycle.

Hollywood has been trying to bring it to the “Mass Effect” screen for over a decade. In 2010, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. announced that they are working on a feature film about the adventures of Commander Shephard. Mark Protosevich (“Oldboy. Revenge is Patient”) was hired to write the script, and Avi Arad, best known for his Marvel comic adaptation, took over as producer. Ultimately, however, the project did not come to fruition.

According to Jennifer Salke, head of the film production department at Amazon, the company intends to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in the implementation of science fiction and fantasy projects in the coming years. The most prestigious project of the studio is, of course, the series “Lord of the Rings”, which will be released next fall.
