Before the game was officially announced, many expected protagonist Commander Shepard to return, and we figured the game would be called "Mass Effect 4." Hence, this image.
But BioWare then confirmed that the first three games were a completed trilogy and they were moving on.
The result will be Mass Effect Andromeda , a new entry – and a new beginning – in the acclaimed ME franchise, and it comes complete with a new main character. Now, to tease the new effort and perhaps lend a greater sense of closure to the original trilogy, BioWare has released a teaser trailer for Andromeda . It's also in celebration of N7 Day (today, November 7). The official vid has been yanked for some reason but you can check out a mirror trailer below.
Narrating the video is Jennifer Hale and she tells the player that "you are the explorer now" and at the end, she says: "This is Commander Shepard, signing off." Last month, senior development director Chris Wynn asked fans to give a Shepard-less Mass Effect a chance . Also via Twitter, the team has given us a a few juicy tidbits , but we know everyone is waiting for that first gameplay trailer. Perhaps we'll see it before E3…?
