New Mass Effect may see Commander Shepard return

With a brand new Mass Effect game within the works, there’s been loads of fan hypothesis as to the potential solid. Will it decide up the place Mass Effect 3 left off, or will or not it’s a recent begin, like Mass Effect: Andromeda was meant to do? As it seems, a bit of promotional artwork may have tipped BioWare’s hand, revealing that Commander Shepard may be an essential character within the new house game.

On its official website, BioWare sells a gorgeous lithograph model of the teaser artwork it revealed final yr on N7 Day, which reveals a celebration of explorers venturing into the caldera of a volcano. The scene is depicted from a fowl’s eye view, so it’s inconceivable to inform who any of the characters are.

However, a YouTuber referred to as MrHulthen noticed an attention-grabbing element within the product description on the BioWare retailer web page. Originally, the textual content included a passage that learn, “Shepard’s final quest may have ended the threat of the Reapers but at great cost including Earth itself. While Shepard and the survivors are left to pick up the pieces, fans are wondering what’s next.”

On its personal, that is cryptic sufficient to be attention-grabbing, with out essentially giving something away. You can learn the sentence to be referring to Shepard and the opposite survivors of the catastrophe on the finish of Mass Effect 3 on the whole, who may or may not have something to do with the brand new game, or it might discuss with Shepard and a particular group of survivors who would possibly turn into your companions within the occasions of the brand new Mass Effect story – which might strongly counsel that Shepard is, on the very least, instantly concerned within the occasions within the new Mass Effect game.

However, BioWare has since up to date the outline of the poster on its web site, which itself means that there’s one thing BioWare didn’t need everybody to find out about within the authentic textual content – why make the correction if nothing has been by accident revealed?

Hopefully we’ll hear extra in regards to the upcoming Mass Effect game within the close to future. No launch date has been introduced as but.
