And it features a familiar face.
BioWare has dropped a surprise teaser for the next Mass Effect game, which is still in its infancy.
The trailer is not subtle. It starts with a long zoom back from space to the familiar galaxy-another, perhaps Andromeda, is left on the horizon.
You’ll hear radio messages from Earth and audio clips from the original Mass Effect trilogy. See the remains of the Mass Relay destroyed in the Reaper War.
Then, on the icy planet, a person reaches into the snow and pulls out the familiar pieces of N7 armor.
The trailer seems to confirm not only that the next Mass Effect game will feature the Milky Way, but also that it will continue the story of our galaxy after the trilogy reaping war.
When is it set exactly? Well, the last number in the teaser is, of course, Liara T’soni, but as a clam that lives for 1000 years, it could be set hundreds of years later.
In the background, behind Riara, is the “Mad Skipper” spacecraft teased by previous concept art.
These images also included an architectural design reminiscent of Remnant, a species introduced in Andromeda, but also teased the mass relay of a galaxy civilization building (or repair) damaged by the Reaper War. It was.
Will the next Mass Effect game be set entirely to the Milky Way? Does Andromeda work at all? And when will this game actually be released? Tonight’s Dragon Age 4 trailer seems to show the game still on the way. All we know for sure is what the trailer is telling us: “Mass Effect is back.”
