We will have to wait to be 100% sure, but BioWare’s comments suggest that this sequel will unite what happened in both galaxies.
The trailer for the new Mass Effect follows generating theories among the community. With the little footage it showed BioWare on The Game Awards 2020It was enough to excite the fans. One of the assumptions most mentioned among people, is the relationship of this title with the trilogy of Shepard and Mass Effect: Andromeda.
The new Mass Effect would connect the original trilogy with ME: Andromeda.Although the adventure of Ryder and his crew in the Andromeda galaxy was not as well received as expected, there are some players who managed to connect with this chapter of the franchise. According a comment from the director of the next Mass Effect, Michael Gamble, allusion is given that this delivery will not abandon the history we saw in this new galaxy.
According to the fans, the story of the next Mass Effect will take us to a restructuring complete of the Milky Way. Of the three endings available in Mass Effect 3, this would mark as canon at the end “Destroy”, and therefore, people hope that we will control Commander Shepard again, but connecting the two galaxies that we already explored in the saga. That said, it is still a theory, and BioWare spoke very little about.
Even with the comment of the same director of the new Mass Effect, it is practically impossible for us to deduce where the next adventure of the franchise will take us. We know that Liara, Shepard’s sidekick through the original trilogy, will be back, and we also have shattered reaper confirmation that we saw for a few seconds in the teaser. But outside of these points, everything begins to be theory and speculation.
With BioWare’s response, do you think the new Mass Effect will take into account the events of Andromeda, or will it only focus on the original trilogy? Remember that the game will not be present during EA Play Live, which will take place at the end of July.
