Dark Horse Announces Mass Effect: Foundation

imagesFinally the Bioware/Asimov crossover we’ve all been waiting for! Oh Wait, it’s something else. To tie in with the next (and final!) DLC for Mass Effect 3, Dark Horse are releasing an ongoing series for release starting in July. I still think the title is a nod to the Grandfather of Space Opera Epics though. Full press release and art after the cut. 




Written by Mac Walters, lead writer of Mass Effect 2 and 3!

 MARCH 2, Seattle, WA–Today at Emerald City Comicon, Dark Horse Comics announced a new ongoing canonical entry in the Mass Effect series!

Mass Effect 2 and 3 lead writer Mac Walters kicks off a new ongoing series, set in the vibrant, engaging world of BioWare’s blockbuster science fiction epic! Fans of the award-winning franchise will find new characters tied directly to the newly announced Mass Effect 3: Citadel single-player DLC.

 Praise for Mass Effect:

“This comic is recommended whether you are a Mass Effect groupie or someone who has never heard of it before today and just likes sci-fi. It’s a strong, good, enjoyable read!”—BAMFAS.com

 “On the writing front, the dialogue is straight out of what one would expect from a Mass Effect related tie in. This positively reflects Dark Horse’s choice to use the lead writer of the series as the lead writer of the comics.”—DualShockers.com

Mass Effect 3: Citadel will release worldwide on March 5 on Xbox 360, PC, and PS3, and on March 6 on PS3 in Europe. Price: $14.99, 1,200 Microsoft Points, or 1,200 BioWare Points.

In addition, fans can read the exclusive interview with Mac Walters on Comic Book Resources.

Mass Effect: Foundation #1 is on sale July 24 in comic shops and on Dark Horse Digital.
