Bioware’s Chris Priestly
has something he would like to say to you.
Hello Penny Arcade readers. My name is Chris Priestly and I am BioWare’s Community Coordinator.
This morning Tycho posted a quote I gave him from a discussion we were having about Mass Effect 2. Unfortunately, the information I gave him was not correct. I had told him that when creating a new character, you could go down a list of key decisions and set them manually. Unfortunately I was working from a test build used by our internal testing department. While there are choice made by the player, new games of ME2 will have a certain pre-disposed assumption of what happened to your new character in ME1.
I apologize to Tycho for not fact checking the information I gave him, and I apologize to all of you who read what he, in good faith, posted today and have been misinformed.
I hardly know what to say - that’s the entire reason I purchased the PC version yesterday. I apologize if, based on my earlier assertion, you did the same. If it’s any consolation, you and I are in a very similar situation.
