How awesome is Mass Effect 2
? Well, if BioWare Community Coordinator Chris Priestly is to be believed, it is about twice
as awesome. "You cannot fit this much awesome on one disc," Priestly stated on the BioWare forums
, after revealing the game content will span two discs.
The necessity of two discs may mean a staggering amount of content for the RPG sequel -- the original was certainly no slouch in content. While some may lament the necessity of having to get up at least once during Mass Effect 2
, Priestly promises that the disc swap happens at a dramatically appropriate point in the story. "Even though there is a disc swap, it occurs at a carefully planned place in the game (that does not interfere with gameplay) and is done once. You do not swap back and forth. 1 swap and then done."
We're going to fathom a guess as to when the swap will occur: immediately after the "suicide mission
" revealed in the game's initial teaser
