BioWare reveals Mass Effect backstory

Check out first five pages of new comic.

BioWare has published a taster of the forthcoming Mass Effect Evolution comic series, which promises to flesh out the backstory of its RPG franchise.

The series' developer posted the first five pages of the Dark Horse Comics-produced tie-in on its official blog, alongside the two different available covers.

Due out on 19th January, the four part series explores the origins of The Illusive Man and "chronicles humanity's first deadly days on the galactic stage."

It's written by Mac Walters – the same scribe responsible for penning the story for Mass Effect 2 and its impending sequel.

All four parts are up for pre-order now at Dark Horse's online store.
