DICE Helping Out Bioware With Mass Effect 3

Electronic Arts’ subsidiary studio Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment (DICE) is helping out Bioware with the final installment of their epic space opera role playing game Mass Effect 3. DICE is the studio behind Battlefield 2, Mirror’s Edge, and the latest Medal of Honor. While they are frantically in pursuit of Need for Speed The Run‘s development schedule, they are also helping out Bioware with the audio realismof the guns and bombs in Mass Effect 3. While they are not actively working with Bioware, some ideas were apparently shared between the two studios on the upcoming action role playing shooter.

In other words: Oh my god, Mass Effect 3 is going to be so awesome not only will the story come to a great ending [we hope], it will also have great characters, an amazing soundtrack and, most importantly, realistic physics driven guns. What more could I possibly want?

Although I can assure you that it is the minority that will probably say What more could I possibly want?(especially since The Witcher 2 is looming large on the horizon) there will be quite a few notable representatives of our esteemed gaming community who will.

However, DICE’s site has no such affirmation on the news and we could only find one citation on the Wikipedia page for DICE. Not that big an issue, am I right? It’s going to be awesome, right? Right?
