Mass Effect: Redemption fills in some of ME 2's biggest mysteries

Mass Effect: Redemption fills in some of ME 2's biggest mysteries

Oh... so that's what happened

Despite the Mass Effect franchise being one of the best RPGs of all time, as with any epic story, it has quite a few mysteries still attached. However, this 2010 release may have been hiding the answers we've been seeking all this time.

Released in 2010, Mass Effect 2 is, you guessed it, the second main instalment in the Mass Effect series by BioWare and follows Commander Shepard and their crew as they go against the galaxy’s greatest threats.

However, Mass Effect 2 begins in quite an unexpected way when Commander Shepard goes missing. Although we now know what happened to them during their disappearance, it was quite the mystery at the time but this 2010 graphic novel release holds some of the answers we still never received in-game.

Mass Effect Volume 1: Redemption, published by Dark Horse and written by Mass Effect 2 lead writer Mac Walters, “reveals an essential moment in the life of Commander Shepard, the galaxy’s greatest hero”.

Mass Effect 2 begins with the disappearance of Commander Shepard. The story of what happens next - exclusive to this graphic novel - will have the commander's companion Dr. Liara T'Soni undertake a deadly mission of extraordinary importance in the Milky Way's lawless Terminus Systems,” reads the synopsis.

Taking place two years before the start of Mass Effect 2, the first volume in the four-part comic mini-series Mass Effect Volume 1: Redemption fills in some of the blanks left during the second BioWare entry and also gives us more insight into the character of Liara T’Soni.

In related Mass Effect news, the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, which recently welcomed a massive price cut during the Steam Summer Sale, now has a gorgeous graphics overhaul you can download for free right now.

This will be the perfect time to explore the RPG series if you missed out in the early 2000s.
