A new Mass Effect was teased during the the 2020 Game Awards. Once a critical darling, the future of the Mass Effect franchise fell into doubt after its 2017 entry, Andromeda, shipped in a shoddy state and was poorly received by players and critics. Check out the teaser trailer below.

No word on if this will be a sequel to Mass Effect: Andromeda, a continuation of the Shepard trilogy, or even some new story addition to the forthcoming Mass Effect Legendary Edition remaster, the trailer features an asari (who could be Liara) picking up a piece of N7 armor.

Rational Me: “Bioware isn’t what it used to be, the recent departures were an even more clear sign of that, and given that it appears to be Liara in that trailer it means that there’s going to be a lot of ME3 related branches that are going to be an utter nightmare to tie up. I don’t see a way they can do it without just declaring a Canon Shepard, and no one’s going to like that. Also, it’s only a teaser, no title, no date, it’s probably behind Dragon Age in terms of development time, and who knows what might happen to it.”

Fanboy Me: “OH MY FUCKING GOD YES YES YES FUCK YES MASS EFFECT MORE OF IT YES HOLY SHIT ITS LIARA AND SHE DOESN’T LOOK EVEN 200 MAYBE WE’LL SEE OTHER OLD CHARACTER HOLY SHIT I CAN’T WAIT!”
