Updated at 11:30 pm: After gathering some community leaders, the clues were solved and the full 30-second BioWare teaser was shared online.
Admittedly, it’s not much more informative than the first five-second segment we saw earlier today, but it does at least show a very nice coat with the N7 logo, hinting at our mysterious hooded character. – The hero of the next game? The villain? – He is a member of the series ‘military band. Or a coat thief.
The same trench coat appeared again The artwork was shared on BioWare’s Twitter/X feed, this time discreetly reveals some potentially minor things – by “expanding” some old details. from expandWe see an interesting scene in a neon bar with Geth costumes and an Angora scene – as some Eurogamer Mass Effect expert Tom Phillips explained to me (by the way, Matt wrote this update; Tom himself is an uncredited third person. ): “Angara from the star Andromeda. arrived, which means either the Gith are now in Angara as well, or the Gaara are in the Milky Way (I think it’s the latter).” Then here we go!
Original Story 6:14 pm: BioWare has celebrated this year’s Mass Effect anniversary with a blog post that teases the title of Mass Effect 5 – and suggests that fans will get answers to their burning questions about what happened after Mass Effect 3 ended.
However, it’s unclear if this means these items will appear in Mass Effect 5 – which is still a few years away – or sooner, as part of N7 Day.
“We’ve been asking ourselves the same questions you’ve been asking us for years!” Mass Effect boss Mike Gamble book. “What happened to everyone you know and love in the games? Who actually died? Who had children with whom? How does the baby sound?”
“What about all the galaxies? That’s it! What’s wrong with our dark world becoming a medium of shadows? What if s-forget…you get the idea.”
“Of course there are answers to these questions, but you’ll have to wait to hear them. And what we say won’t be easy to find, just as you’d expect from our #N7Day ads.”
The rest of the post continues with a list of various mass-effect items available for purchase, with hidden binary code scattered throughout. Filter it and you get 0100010101110000011011010101011011000110111101101110, which spells out the word “epsilon”. Could this be the name of the effects game next month?
Fans have already found a new page on EA’s website by entering the following URL: https://www.ea.com/en-gb/games/mass-effect/epsilon It remains to be seen if more will be added to the site in the next few hours. [UPDATE: There’s now this brief video clip, below – and a reference to Andromeda.]
It’s worth noting that Epsilon was one of the original names Bioware considered for the series before the developer finally settled on Mass Effect. Oh, and epsilon is the Greek number 5 – which would make sense for ME5.

Of course, the answer to the question of who lived and who died after the events of Mass Effect 3 varies from player to player. The sheer “S-” reference has fans excited, with some insisting that Shepard will still be alive in the next game and looking for pieces of information to justify their theories.
Mass Effect 5 is still in pre-production while most of BioWare is still busy finishing the long-awaited Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. The next chapter in the space opera saga is expected to take place hundreds of years after the original trilogy and return the series’ focus to the Milky Way.
In recent years, the N7 tag has provided further evidence. The year 2021 has given us a very detailed picture with many hidden details, not the least of which is the return of Gith. Last year brought more concept art and a snippet of new dialogue from Liara.
Today we reported on two groups of former Mass Effect and Dragon Age employees who wanted to use N7 Day to raise awareness of their plight after being laid off earlier this year. A walkout is planned at Bioware’s offices as a group of employees files a lawsuit against the company over severance pay.
