November 7 is the new Mass Effect day, so BioWare treated us to a brief glimpse of the next game that raises more questions than answers…
After Mass Effect 3 released and made every single fan of the series incredibly happy, there hasn’t been much new from the hybrid RPG/shooter. In the last few months there have been a few teasers for the new game, along with the devs outright saying the game will star a new protagonist. Today, November 7, has come to mean something for the series that follows sci-fi special forces group known as N7, so BioWare had to have something up its sleeve, right? Yup, though it’s more wistful than anything else.
Sorry if you were hoping to see gameplay or characters or any of the story, but there’s a certain weight to what is there. After so many fans hoped to see Shepard fight another day, this video is as direct a goodbye from the character as you’re going to get. Hearing Shepard sign off might just bring a tear to your eye as it’s all onwards and upwards towards Mass Effect Andromeda from here on out – though never say never in the world of video games.
