They better not screw this one up. There's no way they will be able to replace the ICONIC Commander Shepard.

Sure they can, Shepard was a simple insert for people and was very bland most of the time for that reason. They can easily replace it. I'm more interested in the gameplay aspects, the focus on world exploration again is exciting but not if we're talking about the sort of static, boring landscapes from Dragon Age Inquisition.

After my mixed impressions with Inquisition, I'm going to be really careful with this one. I get the feeling they will almost certainly make it the same format as Dragon Age . The video shows some very large landscapes already, and some of them (like the first one in particular, the desert-like area) look worryingly similar to Inquisition. Funny, the sight of wide-open expanses now scares me more than it excites me.

If this turns out to be the same as Dragon Age (I hope not but I get the feeling it very much will be), I might avoid it altogether. I don't have the energy or time for another over-sized and redundant grind-fest.

All I want to know is if there is multiplayer co-op, if there is then I will buy on release day otherwise I will wait until it hits $5 on a steam sale.

If that is true then that is a disappointment, it really should be multiplayer co-op throughout the game including the campaign and not just some crappy horde mode. I hate RPGs but I love the ME series, even the first ME after 6/7 years can still hold it's own against recent AAA blockbusters.

In a game where you typically have to carry around 2 AI NPCs, multiplayer co-op is just a natural fit so when it is not in the game it seems like a glaring omission. The first game, I can understand that there is no multiplayer just to keep things simple, when the 2nd one came out I was ready to buy on release day but then I found out that there is no co-op multiplayer so I held off until it hit $5.

When the 3rd on came out, again I was ready to buy it on release day and yet again I find out there is no multiplayer co-op so again I waited and bought ME3 when it hit $5.

Me and a lot of other people will disagreed with you. The only way multiplayer or coop will work for me is for instance one player play as Commander Shepard and the other takes over the one of the NPC squad members(like Jack, Miranda,Garrus ect) during a mission.

99% of the game is doing missions, if someone wants to be sheppard and walk around the ship trying to mack on NPCs then I will go take a pee break and come back when the mission starts.

I love these kind of trailer. Almost put tears in my eyes. I think it's well done and it was good to hear my Femshep voice once again. A bit of Sunshine soundtrack and Contact intro. Don't mess this one up Bioware.
