New Mass Effect Game Teased for N7 Day, and It Shows a Mysterious Individual

In case you didn’t know, today is officially Mass Effect Day or more commonly known as N7 Day (November 7, get it?). To mark the occasion, BiioWare has not only revealed a bunch of new collectibles, but we even have a few teasers for the new Mass Effect game!

Titled “Epsilon,” the trailer — understandably — doesn’t show any gameplay footage or even tangible info on the upcoming new entry in the franchise. However, we do get a look at a mysterious individual waking.

Before the teaser was revealed, we got the following message on the official site:


When the timer reached zero, BioWare unveiled the teaser.

Of course, this all happened today because of N7 Day. For those curious, here’s what BioWare showed off/announced today.

Alongside that, Mike Gamble, Mass Effect Franchise Director, penned a message to fans.

Every November 7th, we’ve all come together—developers, superfans, regular fans, kinda-fans—to celebrate (and speculate about!) the games, stories, and community that make Mass Effect so special. It’s a testament to the long-lasting appeal of this universe and the characters who call it home. Eleven years of N7 Days and sixteen years of Mass Effect later, the franchise continues to inspire our development team, and with each day, gives us the opportunity to create more adventures for you to have. Whether it’s one of the many who have been here since the original game’s launch or those recently joining us at BioWare, we are all incredibly lucky to be envisioning this future.

That process is equal parts rewarding and challenging. 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.

But for real… thank you. Thank you for everything, and allowing us to do what we do. We approach the future of this universe with gratitude and deep respect. Respect for you—the community. Respect for the love and dedication you’ve given to us. Respect for the history and the stories you’ve created, and the characters you’ve fallen in love with. And, respect for the future, and the opportunity to do something big—something amazing—for you.
