It was the Mass Effect series' N7 Day earlier this week and as part of this, legendary developer BioWare has shared another teaser.
In a brief blog update wishing the community a "Happy N7 Day", franchise director and executive producer Mike Gamble mentioned how the team was approaching the "future of this universe" and was excited about the "opportunity to do something big—something amazing" for fans.
As part of this, the developer has released a new teaser, which you can check out in the video above. Mike also realises fans have a lot of questions about the popular sci-fi
"We’ve asked ourselves many of the same questions you’ve asked us over the years! What happened to everyone you know and love in the games? Who really died? Who had kids with whom? What does a baby volus sound like? What about all the galaxies? The endings! What the heck is going on with our asari scientist-turned-Shadowbroker? What about S— nevermind...you get the idea. And of course, to those questions, there are answers, but you’ll have to wait to hear them. And anything we do say won’t be easy to find, just like you’ve come to expect from our #N7Day teases."
EA also shared the following text on its Mass Effect webpage:
"/////ACCESS CODE: EPSILON
/////ACCESS CODE ACCEPTED
/////SECONDARY ENCRYPTION DETECTED
/////ANDROMEDA DISTRESS SIGNAL DETECTED
/////YEAR SENT: [REDACTED]
/////AUDIO TRANSCRIPT: ALTHOUGH THEY SHOULD KNOW BY NOW NOT TO UNDERESTIMATE HUMAN [REDACTED]"
The future of the new game remains a mystery for now, but there are suggestions it will likely take place after the fourth game, with Liara and her crew potentially answering a distress signal. Again, this is all just speculation for now.
To celebrate N7 last year, BioWare shared some new artwork, and previously it's released a separate cinematic.
