Cut Mass Effect Alien Races We’d Love to See Return Some Day.
BioWare was a company that created the mass Effect universe; the concept artists at the studio came up with many alien species concepts. Many of these ideas never made it into the game and were left on the cutting-room floor. HoweverMass Effect 4It appears that Liara is returning to the Milky Way and fan-favourite characters from the original trilogy. There are reasons why the new game could also reintroduce many aliens that were cut during the development of all four. Mass effect far, game
The trailer for Mass Effect 4 features a shot of the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy. This shot was described by Michael Gamble, BioWare’s project manager, as “intentional.” This means that Andromeda will be connected to the Milky Way in the next game. With only one cluster of Andromeda discovered so far, many of these alien concepts may return from Andromeda as new species in the next BioWare sci-fi game.
The Cut Andromeda Aliens
Mass Effect: Andromeda had around ten alien concepts that were ultimately cut. Jaal the Angara, a companion of a different species than the original trilogy, was the only one. Although other aliens like the Jordaan were mentioned, only Jaal the Angara or the Kett made it to the final act as organic races.
One piece of concept art depicts one of these alien races riding on a beast resembling a giant stag beetle. Based on the design of the humanoid alien, it’s possible that they eventually evolved into the Angara saw in-game. It could be interesting to add giant sapient aliens, based on the humanoid’s mount, to the Mass Effect mix, even though there is a fewer humanoid race like the Elcor.
Mass Effect 1’s horrifying cut concept of the Hue-Mon, which is less humanoid, has plenty to offer when it comes to aliens. Although the Mass Effect universe is filled with humanoid aliens, this concept sought to show how a different species might feel and instil itself in Citadel Council’s species by copying them.
It’s not a pretty result, and the description with its shifting mass and eyes were hidden behind an eerie mask may not have been appropriate for the Mass Effect universe. Although the games are not without horror elements, it’s nice to see a terrifying species from the beginning despite having a heart full of gold. Either way, it’s hard to believe that part of this concept eventually evolved into the mask-wearing Quarians…
