Polygon Reports:

"The other thing I can tell you is that, while it will be very respectful of the heritage built over the course of the first three games, with the original trilogy now concluded and the switch over to a new engine, we are exploring new directions, both on the gameplay and story fronts," Roy wrote. "You can still expect the pillars the franchise is known for to be fully intact though, including diverse alien races, a huge galaxy to explore, and of course rich, cinematic storytelling."

I'm not sure that BioWare really understands what the ME audience wants. We don't need a better 3rd person shooter; if that's what we wanted, we'd just keep playing Gears of War. What we want is the classic BioWare story, along with the classic branching dialog choices. The choices you make as a player have to mean something, rather than be boiled down to 3 possible endings (or, as in DA2, one possible ending). We aren't watching a movie - to a very large extent, time spent on cinematics is time wasted.
