I seriously need to look into this franchise, and this may be the title to start. Good news!

No. EA has proven that they're not interested in creating games without microtransactions anymore. And their last two titles without microtransactions were both grindfests. Mass Effect Andromeda is basically Dragon Age Inquisition in space, and both games are a drag. Granted, DA:I had a good story, but it's an incredibly boring game regardless. Just filled to the brim with useless fetch quests along huge boring areas. And they were huge for no reason other than the fact that EA can say that their games are open world. It was obviously not what developers wanted to make. The most important design decisions came from people who know nothing about video games and what makes them fun.

Now add microtransactions to that mix. And not as an afterthought, but as an integral part of the experience. What do you think is gonna happen? The game will be designed to incentivize you to make in-game purchases to avoid grinding. How do we know? Well, people bought Dragon Age Inquisition and Mass Effect Andromeda. They were grindy and without microtransactions. EA knows that people will gladly pay to skip some of that grind. So instead of designing the game to be less grindy and more fun, they will absolutely just try to cash in on the grind. It's not a speculation, it's an educated guess based on years of their previous decisions.

So for the love of whatever you hold dear and sacred, stop buying EA games. Vote with your wallet. They will never change their terrible business practices if they don't feel the effect of their decisions on their bottom line.

most likely this game will never be released, if bioware fails with anthem next year.
