Mass Effect returns with a mysterious new teaser

New, 12 comments

The series ‘will continue’

The Mass Effect franchise isn’t done just yet, according to a strange new teaser at The Game Awards. In a short clip, a hooded figure uncovers a piece of equipment bearing the game’s N7 logo from the snow. The teaser closes with the words “Mass Effect will continue.”

On Twitter, BioWare said that the next game is now in “early production.”

Bioware’s beloved space series wrapped its original trilogy with Mass Effect 3 in 2012. Curiously, the teaser appears to feature Liara — or, at least someone bearing a strong resemblance to her — one of the game’s Asari shipmates and possible love interests. Asari live for hundreds of years, however, meaning any future games don’t necessarily have to take place during the Shepard era of the trilogy.

The last in the series, Mass Effect: Andromeda — a game featuring a new cast — was released in 2017 to mixed reviews.
