BioWare want to know what players most like about the Mass Effect series and expect from Mass Effect 4, and have launched a short survey to obtain that feedback.
The survey is mainly focused on role-playing games, asking players to rate the importance of various aspects (story, combat, exploration, and customisation) on seven-point Likert scales. It also asks respondents to choose up to three favourite aspects of RPGs from a list that includes the likes of "levelling up," "customising appearance," and "comparing myself to friends," and asks about players' previous experience with the series and with RPGs in general.
Very little is known about Mass Effect 4 at this stage, other than the fact that it is currently in development and it will take place in a new location. A short teaser for the new game was shown at E3 this year, and can be seen above.
