A Mass Effect 5 trailer was featured as the final moments of the 2020 Game Awards Event. This has a highlight that fans of the original trilogy will be extremely happy about!
Shepard sequel confirmed: At the end of the Game Awards show 2020 the famous “One Last Thing” was presented. That turned out to be a new Mass Effect offshoot. As it turns out, the rumors about a direct sequel to Mass Effect 3 have been confirmed. There’s a quick summary at the end of the article!
Mass Effect 5 Trailer Shows Old Fan Favorites Back
We saw that: In the short reveal trailer of Mass Effect 5, which has neither the number in the name nor any nickname confirmed, we saw a lot that should make fans of Shepard and the original trilogy scream like 12-year-old girls — But not me! I screamed like a man.
On the one hand, we see a destroyed Reaper in the background, lying on an icy planet. So Shepard obviously made it. On the other hand, a well-known and clearly aged character appears: the female Asari “Liara T’Soni”, who has been with us since the very first Mass Effect.
Liara Gives us These Clues in the Mass Effect 5 Trailer
- Liara met Shepard in part 1 and survived the third part
- Since she is an Asari, she can live up to 2000 years. This, in combination with the clear signs of aging on her face, suggests that the Mass Effect 5 is taking place in the Milkyway long after the third iteration.
What is Mass Effect 5 about? We don’t know whether the Reaper threat is forever off the galactic table. In any case, the trailer for Mass Effect 5 shows a destroyed citadel and hundreds of spaceship wrecks. We also hear radio signals and reaper hums that have long been silent.
Then we see the Asari, walking along a hill slope, and at the end of the trailer, she finds a piece of Commander John Shepard’s helmet on which the N7 logo can still be seen.
Mass Effect 5 trailer information summarized
- Mass Effect 5 takes place after the third part, possibly hundreds to 1,000 years
We meet at least one well-known character
- The Reaper seem defeated, or at least beaten back: but that could also be a deliberate illusion.
- Shepard is pretty sure dead.
- It doesn’t go back to the Andromeda Galaxy
