As with other entries in the Mass Effect franchise, players will be asked whether they’d like to play as a male or female character. Both are canon choices, and it turns out that they’re siblings.
At E3, we got to see the female lead choice, while the PlayStation Meeting introduced us to the male character. BioWare creative director Mac Walters said, "They both exist in the game world at the same time. If you're playing as the female Ryder, your brother is out there somewhere in the universe.” It’s as yet unclear if you’ll bump into your sibling at some point in the narrative.
Meanwhile, Walters revealed that we’ve already seen their father. "The character we saw two E3s ago, the N7, is actually your father. So we have got the full Ryder family revealed. We'll do names and things in the future," Walters said.
You can see the game in action below, and if you have a 4K screen handy, you can enjoy what the PS4 Pro will be able to offer.
