Mass Effect 2 to span two discs

Mass Effect 2

BioWare Community Coordinator Chris Priestly has revealed that Mass Effect 2 will span two discs. “You cannot fit this much awesome on one disc,” Priestly boasted on the BioWare forums. He also confirmed that the disc swap happens at a dramatically appropriate point in the story.

“Even though there is a disc swap, it occurs at a carefully planned place in the game (that does not interfere with gameplay) and is done once. You do not swap back and forth. 1 swap and then done.”

More Bioware RPG is better than less RPG, although the DVD format is clearly starting to show its limitations.

Mass Effect 2 is due for release in late January 2010 on PC and Xbox 360.
