BioWare's Mass Effect IOS Game Is The Third-Person Shooter Mass Effect: Infiltrator

At a press event in New York today, EA announced that BioWare's hit Mass Effect franchise will be coming to iOS as a new game called Mass Effect: Infiltrator, which will tie in with their upcoming game Mass Effect 3.

The game was described as a "fully featured iOS third-person shooter" which will showcase "stunning graphics and authentic weapons and powers from the Mass Effect series."

The story for Infiltrator will involve helping free prisoners from a hostile Cerberus base, and that players will "receive rewards" for collecting evidence of Cerberus' crimes.

The aforementioned rewards play out in how the game will tie in with Mass Effect 3. According to EA, "Every completed rescue and intelligence discovery in Infiltrator will increase a player's Galactic Readiness rating directly through the 'Galaxy at War' system in Mass Effect 3."

The "Galaxy at War" system is the same overarching system that ties into the game's surprisingly cool multiplayer .

    So.. is this coming to WP as well?

      I doubt it. Unfortunately MS kind of shot themselves in the foot by not allowing native code to run on WP7.

      With a bit of effort you can port between iOS and Android, you just need to re-write the platform layer using their provided toolkits. You have to re-write the entire game if you want to get it on WP7.

    This is what I was waiting for.
    Now I can go get the new iPhone.

    Pretty sure this is being made by Aussie dev Iron Monkey Studios, the same guys behind the Dead Space iPhone game, so it looks like it could be pretty good :)

    I've heard the game is being made by a disreputable bunch of misfits and miscreants who are known for their shenanigans. Therefore, it should be an awesome game.

    I will not give in. Like Shepard, I REFUSE to give in to iPhone/iPad JUST FOR THIS.

    Now I have to buy an iPod touch. Thanks BioWare for not.creating it for.the most widely used smartphone platform in the world: Android.
