[Rumor] Survei Mass Effect 4 Mengungkap Banyak Sekali Bocoran!

Mass Effect 4 - Cover

Saga Commander Shepard bukan akhir dari franchise Mass Effect. Itu sudah jelas. Sepuluh bulan lalu saja detil tentang Mass Effect 4 sudah diumumkan di E3. Fans seri ini pun mulai berspekulasi, ke arah manakah Bioware akan membawa game populer ini? Apakah sebagai prequel sebelum kisah Shepard? Sesudah trilogi Mass Effect, sambil melihat efek keputusan Shepard di ending? Nah, kemarin muncul bocoran yang bisa membuat spekulasi tentang Mass Effect 4 semakin memanas.

[read_more link="http://www.duniaku.net/2014/06/12/e3-2014-bioware-siap-perkenalkan-karakter-dan-dunia-baru-dalam-mass-effect-4/" title="E3 2014: BioWare Siap Perkenalkan Karakter dan Dunia Baru dalam Mass Effect 4"]

Seorang user di Reddit, benjamin_stone mengaku mendapatkan survei dari Bioware yang isinya adalah sejumlah detil tentang Mass Effect 4. Jelas, satu pos Reddit bukan acuan paling terpercaya di bumi ini. Karenanya pos ini bisa dikategorikan sebagai rumor, bukan konfirmasi. Tapi, apakah post Reddit ini bisa dikesampingkan begitu saja? Tidak. Tahun 2012 lalu, ada juga bocoran detil Dragon Age: Inquisition dari seseorang yang dikirimi survei oleh Bioware. Hasilnya ternyata tak jauh dari game jadinya, seperti kamu bisa lihat di forum [outbound_link text="Bioware" link="http://forum.bioware.com/topic/399197-comprehensive-list-of-leaked-dragon-age-3inquisition-information/"]. Apakah survei Mass Effect 4 ini pun sama-sama memberi bocoran dini?

Jadi, apa saja info yang didapat benjamin_stone? Mari kita lihat satu persatu. Informasi Mass Effect 4 ini begitu panjang dan menyeluruh, kami harus membaginya jadi empat halaman untuk kemudahan membaca. Dan tidak, empat halaman itu bukan ditentukan karena judul game ini adalah Mass Effect 4.

The Next Mass Effect Context:

The next Mass Effect game takes place in the Helius Cluster (a cluster of 100s of solar systems in the Andromeda Galaxy), far removed by time and space from Commander Shepard’s heroic acts and the final events of the Mass Effect trilogy. You are a pathfinder, a combat trained but un-tested explorer leading an expedition into the Helius cluster to establish a new home for humanity. As you explore this sprawling series of solar systems (over 4x the size of Mass Effect 3), collecting resources and building colonies, you will encounter the savagery of untamed lands in the form of cut-throat outlaws and warring alien races. To survive and colonize the wild reaches of space, you will need to grow your arsenal, your ship, your crew and make strategic (and often uneasy) alliances to fight against increasingly menacing foes. Along the way, you will encounter the remains of a once powerful and mysterious alien race, the Remnant, whose forgotten technology holds the key to gaining power in this region of the galaxy. As you uncover who the Remnant were, and the mysteries their ruins contain, you are drawn into a violent race to find the source of their forgotten technology that will determine the fate of humanity.

Kalau dilihat dari sini, tampaknya Bioware mengambil cara "gampang" untuk tak terlalu menyorot efek ending Mass Effect 3 di dunia Mass Effect 4. Seperti bisa kamu baca di atas, bila info ini benar, Mass Effect 4 akan mengambil setting di Galaksi Andromeda. Ini pertama kalinya seri Mass Effect akan mengambil setting di luar Galaksi Bimasakti. Temanya pun adalah eksplorasi, lomba menjelajah galaksi yang lama tak tersentuh untuk memperoleh teknologi terlupakan. Satu-satunya yang bisa dipetik dari premis ini adalah Galaksi Bimasakti selamat dari event Mass Effect 3, dan kini penduduknya mulai mencoba ekspansi di Mass Effect 4. Apakah eksplorasi ini akhirnya justru memanggil ancaman yang lebih menakutkan dari Reaper?

Dari concept art Mass Effect 4 yang sudah beredar, ada indikasi kalau kamu bukan generasi explorer pertama di Helius Cluster. Ada beberapa tempat yang terlihat sudah dibangun untuk mendukung populasi koloni. Tempat ini contohnya. Apakah area ini akan menjadi Citadel di Mass Effect 4?

Collect Resources to Fuel your Growth:

Scour solar systems and planets within the Helius Cluster to find valuable resources and blueprints of long forgotten alien technology that will allow you to craft better equipment and weapons, such as improving your leg armor to allow you to jetpack jump, or upgrading your cryo-beam (laser cannon) to target enemies or do area damage around you to clear out close threats. As you build your arsenal and resource infrastructure, you will be able to explore deeper into the increasingly dangerous and resource-rich solar systems of the Helius Cluster.

Di Mass Effect 4 kamu akan menjelajahi planet-planet di Helius Cluster. Penjelasan lebih lanjut tentang penerapan sistem eksplorasi ini di Mass Effect 4 bisa kamu lihat di halaman empat.

Keterangan berikut memberi gambaran tentang jumlah anggota tim yang bisa kamu kumpulkan dalam Mass Effect 4. Ada satu nama yang disebut-sebut, Cora. Tapi detil lebih lanjut tentang dia, seperti ras, senjata, bahkan foto, juga belum tersedia.

A Capable Crew:

Throughout the story, you will recruit seven distinct crew members to fight by your side. Each crew member has a unique personality and specific abilities that open up strategic options as you choose which two of them to bring into each mission. For example, Cora has the ability to deploy a biotic shield that protects everyone in the bubble while still allowing you and your squad to fire out of it. Your crew will grow alongside you as you explore the Helius Cluster, and you can choose how you upgrade your crew’s weapons, gear and abilities to increase their individual combat effectiveness. Create the perfect squad to react to any situation and to support your preferred gameplay style.

Detil berikutnya menjelaskan kalau loyalty mission masih ada di Mass Effect 4. Disebutkan juga satu karakter lagi, Drack, dari ras krogan.

Your Crew, Your Story:

Your crew members aren’t merely hired guns – they are part of the living universe in the Helius Cluster that develops in response to your actions and choices. Increase each crew member’s loyalty by pursuing missions that are important to that specific character. For example, when a Krogan colony ship has been stolen by one of the outlaw factions leaving the colonists stranded without resources to survive, your Krogan squad mate, Drack, is determined to strike out against them. If you take the mission and help him track down the outlaws’ hideout to return the ship to its rightful owners, Drack’s loyalty toward you and your squad will increase and Drack will unlock a brand new skill tree.

Explore each individual’s backstory and develop your relationship with them through conversations and unique missions. True to Mass Effect, what you choose to say will directly affect your crew’s loyalty and relationship with you, and will open up different conversations and narrative opportunities at the end of the game depending upon how you approach each encounter.

Sedangkan detil yang ini tampaknya menegaskan kalau Mass Effect 4 akan menerapkan sistem War Table dari Dragon Age: Inquisition. Kamu bisa mengirim sebuah tim untuk menjalankan sebuah misi, dan setiap misi akan dikejarkan sesuai dengan waktu di dunia kita.

Deployed Strike Team Missions:

The Helius Cluster is 1000s of light years across, and you can’t be everywhere at once. As you develop more colonies, resource bases and settlements, you have to be able to keep them safe. Spend resources to recruit mercenaries and develop an AI controlled Strike Team that you can deploy to take on randomly generated, time-sensitive missions. Strike Team missions take many forms, including settlement defense and Remnant artifact recovery, which will take real-time to complete. Send your Strike Team out on a mission while you continue playing the main game and they will return, 20 – 30 minutes later, having gained rewards such as XP, currency and equipment based on the success of their mission. Spend money and resources to train your Strike Team and acquire better gear for them, which will increase their success rate and allow them to take on more difficult missions for greater rewards.

Selain metode War Table, kamu juga diberi kesempatan untuk menyelesaikan sendiri misi-misi tadi lewat multiplayer, memberikan lebih banyak cara untuk menyelesaikan misi sejenis ini di Mass Effect 4.

Active Strike Team Missions:

When you encounter a Strike Team mission in the Single-Player mode, you can leave your Strike Team at their base and decide to tackle the mission yourself with your Multiplayer roster of characters. You also have the option of tackling the mission by yourself, or recruiting up to three friends to play with you. The more friends you bring, the greater the challenge and the greater the reward. These missions will play out using the Next Mass Effect’s multiplayer Horde mode (more details on this later). These missions will include a variety of thematically appropriate objectives, like defending a Settlement against Khet attacks, or recovering a Remnant artifact off of a planet before an outlaw gang gets there first. By taking an active role in strike team missions, you can earn special Single-player rewards in addition to the usual multiplayer specific characters, weapons, weapon mods, and pieces of equipment which can be customized between missions. Additionally, players who join another person’s Strike Team mission will receive bonus in-game currency and multiplayer XP for helping others with their missions.

Berikut adalah penjelasan tentang Horde Mode, sistem di Mass Effect 4 yang akan kamu pakai kalau kamu mau menyelesaikan Strike Team Missions secara multiplayer.

Multiplayer “Horde” Mode:

The next Mass Effect’s “Horde” multiplayer pits you and up to three of your friends against waves of enemy troops on various battlefields throughout the galaxy. Players fight together to survive increasingly difficult enemy attacks and accomplish objectives, like disabling a bomb near a colony base or assassinating a target. Progress through multiplayer missions to gain XP and earn new multiplayer specific weapons, characters, weapon mods, and pieces of equipment, which can be customized between matches. Multiplayer play will also earn you APEX funds (in-game currency), which can be used to purchase items and gear in the Single Player game.

Sebagai tim explorer, Mass Effect 4 tampaknya memungkinkan kamu membangun pemukiman-pemukiman di sepanjang Helius Cluster.

Establish Settlements:

Search solar systems for rare habitable planets to establish a settlement that could serve as a base for humankind’s new home in the Helius Cluster. As you build permanent settlements, you will make strategic choices on where to focus your new base’s resources. For example: Recon Settlements will clear fog of war from the space map and give the player more strike team missions to choose from, while Mining Settlements will periodically supplement the player’s supply of crafting materials.

Masih lanjut membaca? Sekarang adalah penjelasan tentang sistem dialog di Mass Effect 4. Sistem interrupt, yang dulu diperkenalkan di Mass Effect 2 lewat Renegade/Paragon Interrupt akan memiliki pengaruh yang lebih di Mass Effect 4.


Building upon the rich history of strategic dialogue that has defined the Mass Effect series, you can make meaningful choices in every conversation you have with characters that impact the way your game evolves. The next Mass Effect adds deeper control over your conversations through a greater ability to interrupt and change the course of the conversation as it is happening. During certain conversations, you will be able to take action based choices, such as the option to pull out your gun and force someone to open a door instead of convincing them to do it through conversational guile. Action based choices give you more options for how you approach dialogue with characters in the game and can lead to more extreme outcomes on the story as it evolves around the decisions you make when interacting with a huge cast of NPC characters.

Mass Effect 4 - Mako

Nah, ini adalah penjelasan tentang sistem travel dan eksplorasi Mass Effect 4. Dan ternyata... Mako, tank dengan kemampuan memanjat gunung terjal di Mass Effect 1, akan kembali di Mass Effect 4! Kalau benar begitu, semoga saja kamu bisa kembali merasakan sensasi mendaki gunung yang seharusnya tak bisa didaki dengan menggunakan kendaraan tempur berat.

Seamlessly Travel Through the Next Mass Effect Universe:

As you pilot your space ship, Tempest, across the 100s of solar systems that are seamlessly connected in the next Mass Effect, you will encounter new planets filled with valuable resources, intelligent life, conflict, and alien technology that all give you opportunities to increase the power of your character, your ship and your team so that you can build them into a force that perfectly suits your gameplay style. Transitions between activities, like flying your Tempest (space ship) across a solar system to land on a mineral rich planet, then jumping into your Mako (land vehicle) to explore the surface of planet, all happen smoothly without loading screens.

Customize and Share Your Experience:

Discover new things in Andromeda Galaxy, like alien artifacts and natural wonders, that serve as trophies and decorations that you can use to modify the look of your character, Tempest (Space Ship) and Mako (land vehicle). Customize the way your squad and your character look with clothes and aesthetic modifications that you unlock throughout the game. Photos you take from the far reaches of the galaxy can be used to decorate your starship or sold to certain characters.

Remnant Vault Raids: Find and activate Remnant Monoliths to unlock Remnant vaults. Explore abandoned Remnant ruins to find and locate a powerful artifact, but once you remove it you will trigger the vault defenses that will arm traps, activate defense robots and even change the architecture of the vault itself to stop you from escaping. Fight your way out of the vault and you will be rewarded with valuable loot, including powerful gear, crafting resources and Star Keys that can be used to unlock massive orbital facilities in space that grant permanent stat bonuses.

Optional Elite Remnant Vault Raids are scattered around the Helius Cluster located in special orbital facilities that are unlocked by Star Keys. Similar to the standard Remnant Vaults, you enter them to retrieve a special artifact which will trigger the vault defenses that arm traps, activate defense robots and change the architecture of the vault itself to stop you from escaping. However, Elite vaults ratchet up the difficulty of the encounter with increasingly powerful defense robots and traps, as well as roaming outlaws and deadly Khet patrols that are also in search of the elite artifacts. Elite Remnant vaults will test the limits of your combat and puzzle solving acumen, but with greater difficulty comes greater rewards. Gain rare loot, narrative acclaim and huge rewards for completing these daunting challenges.

Khet Outposts: As you explore planets throughout the Helius Cluster, you will encounter Khet Outposts. These outposts are optional combat experiences where you enter the outpost and fight off waves of enemies. Destroy Khet outposts to earn XP, rewards and thwart their growing power in the region. Your allies will reward you with praise and increased narrative options as you fight to remove the Khet presence from the region.

Drive and upgrade your Mako (land vehicle): Explore the surfaces of 100s of planets in the Helius Cluster in your versatile land vehicle, the Mako. Whether you are looking for a place to set up a colony, searching for a Remnant vault or attacking a Khet Outpost, you will enjoy getting there in your Mako. Equip and upgrade your Mako in dozens of ways, like adding turbo boosters, upgrading your shield generator or adding a Hostile Detector to your radar to create the ultimate planetary exploration vehicle. Finally, get your Mako looking the way you want with a custom paintjob.

Dengan itu, habislah sudah bocoran panjang tentang Mass Effect 4 ini. Beberapa media game barat sudah mencoba mengontak EA dan Bioware untuk memverifikasi kebenaran berita ini, namun sejauh ini belum ada tanggapan dari mereka. Bagi penulis, ada bau-bau kuat kalau Mass Effect 4 akan mengintegrasikan sejumlah unsur dari Dragon Age: Inquisition, seperti terlihat dari sistem yang mirip dengan War Table. Bagaimana menurutmu? Apa kamu setuju dan menyukai arah yang dituju Bioware dalam detil survey Mass Effect 4 ini?
