Bioware reveals new Mass Effect game coming to the iPhone

Spin-off game entitled Mass Effect: Jacob's Story will be exclusive to the iPhone

It was revealed last Friday that Mass Effect 2, the sequel to Bioware's highly successful Mass Effect, will have a spin-off game entitled Mass Effect: Jacob's Story that will be exclusive to the iPhone. Details reveal that the game will work as a back story for Mass Effect 2's main protagonist: Jacob.

"We were going to announce this, but one of the testers at a focus testing group broke the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and things were revealed before we had the chance," said BioWare community manager Chris Priestly on the company's forums.

As revealed by the leaked survey, the character named Jacob is a "biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization's greatest beacon of hope."

The gameplay itself will be a top-down shooter and will include two hours of animated, story-driven content in a cartoony art style. When released, the price for the game is expected to be around US$2.99.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
