The next Mass Effect gets a new teaser on N7 Day

A screen grab from the N7 Day 2023 Mass Effect teaser.

Update: BioWare still had another surprise up its sleeve for this N7 Day, with multiple countdown timers on its website slowly ending and revealing clips from a new teaser. They now all seem to be out, and the official Mass Effect YouTube channel has posted the full video titled “N7 Day 2023.” In it, we see a character walking through a hangar. They then turn around, revealing a jacket with the N7 logo on it, but a helmet obscures their identity. They then take out a gun, walk out toward the alien planet, and the title card saying Mass Effect appears. Mike Gamble tweeted out the video, saying, “look closely.” Check out the full video below, followed by the original article.

N7 Day 2023

It’s November 7, 2023, which means it’s also N7 Day, where EA and BioWare celebrate the Mass Effect series, which has a new game in development. While we didn’t get any new art or another trailer this year, a message from Mike Gamble, Mass Effect franchise director and executive producer, does tease story elements for the next mainline Mass Effect game.

Specifically, he heavily teases the new Mass Effect game’s connection to the original trilogy by going over many of the questions BioWare has had to ask itself during the game’s development. The blog post includes a list of juicy questions that the next game may explore.

  • “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– never mind … you get the idea.”

Although there’s still nothing in terms of a plot synopsis or premise for the next Mass Effect game just yet, the wording of this post makes it very clear that BioWare finally plans on answering many questions about the conclusion of the original trilogy, which 2017’s Mass Effect Andromeda ignored. Ultimately, Gamble says BioWare will “approach the future of this universe with gratitude and deep respect.”

Outside of that, other N7 celebrations include a Humble Bundle of Mass Effect and Dragon Age comics, new items in BioWare’s gear store, some new statues based on Mass Effect characters, and more. BioWare is also embroiled in controversy this N7 Day as unionized workers from Keywords who were laid off by BioWare earlier this year are on strike outside the studio’s Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, office.

Mass Effect: Andromeda: The best weapons in the galaxy you should craft
Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect: Andromeda has nearly 70 weapons to find, research, and craft, plus I–X upgrade tiers for each gun. With so many options -- and not nearly enough research data in a single playthrough to upgrade every weapon -- it can be difficult to tell which guns are actually worth the resources.

You'll unlock the best weapon blueprints as you advance beyond Level 25, so keep plugging away at quests to grab access to the best of the best. That said, we've collected our picks for the most powerful and versatile weapons in the Andromeda galaxy, so you don't waste time fighting Kett with a terrible weapon.
