A few hours ago the N7 Day officially ended , the anniversary celebrated by all fans of the BioWare franchise on November 7 of each year to remember together with the developers all the best moments of the saga, with an important news related to Mass Effect 5 .
The BioWare trilogy has in fact marked important pages in videogame history, as demonstrated by the success of Mass Effect Legendary Edition and by the wait for the new chapter of the franchise, to which the original voice actors of Commander Shepard have admitted they want to bring their own contribution. .
The developers were able to further ignite the enthusiasm of the community by surprisingly publishing a new teaser image of the next chapter , which has already started the theories on what it could mean for the future.
In fact, there are those who see possible references to Andromeda , with which, however, cuts have been made starting from the engine used .
Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale , the voice actors of Commander Shepard in male and female versions, were interviewed on the occasion of N7 Day by the editorial staff of GamesRadar + , where they had the opportunity to discuss the future of the saga.
Although fans of the Commander Shepard trilogy are continuing to debate whether or not the charismatic leader could make his return in the next chapter, the actors have admitted they want to continue lending their voices on Mass Effect 5 as well .
Obviously their preference would be for the reinterpretation of Commander Shepard, but they are more than ready to put him aside and collaborate on other roles as well, as they have already had the opportunity to do in the course of the original trilogy:
Jennifer Hale: “I’d jump to come back and do anything in the universe, especially, obviously more Shepard.”
Mark Meer: « The Mass Effect universe is made and thought out really well and gives the feeling that it is a place full of life.
I just want to see more stories in that universe . And I’m speaking strictly as a fan, not as a voice actor who is hoping to get a job ».
An example that the voice actor provided was the War of First Contact , a historical conflict that is fundamental for the canons of the history of Mass Effect , but never really deepened within the video games, however clarifying immediately that it has no connection and that it is to be seen as a simple desire of his.
Given the anticipated setting for Mass Effect 5 , it seems unlikely that this story will be deepened, but the example has been used to show that the story of the BioWare franchise still has a lot to offer and tell its fans.
And the two Commanders Shepard, much appreciated by the community precisely because they too are big fans, hope to be able to continue to be part of it.
N7 Day was also an ideal opportunity to reveal what choices the community made in the Mass Effect trilogy , thus revealing which consequences were the most popular.
One of the most controversial is certainly the one concerning the ending of the third chapter: the former developers have finally explained the meaning of the colors .
One of the most hated aspects of the final cutscene was one character in particular, to the point that there are those who made a mod to be able to kill him permanently .
