It’s N7 Day (November 7), the day on which BioWare enjoys celebrating all things BioWare — but mostly Mass Effect. Historically, the developer has spent this particular day talking about its best releases, while briefly letting fans know what’s to come. Today, the company offered a small teaser on Mass Effect 5 — or whatever it names the next Mass Effect. If you’ve been concerned about the game’s development, fear not. BioWare writes that the game is in “pre-production,” and is “proceeding very well.”
It’s promising enough news, but that’s not all the company offered to fans. Over at the Mass Effect Twitter account, BioWare shared a look at a massive ship coming to the game: the MR 7. It’s an animated graphic, not large enough to fit the huge space craft. Smaller ships are seen floating around it, demonstrating just how impressive the MR 7 is in scale. Sharp-eyed fans may find secrets or even Easter eggs in the Mass Effect teaser clip. And I don’t doubt that its reveal has sparked some serious discussions.
Happy #N7Day from across the stars! ? We found this interesting footage you may want to ? a bit more closely.

Mass Effect 5 teaser is less tease this year
In an adjoining blog post, the Mass Effect team offered some morsels of information. Unfortunately, it’s just morsels for the moment. But thankfully, it’s more than a simple teaser image like what we got last year. BioWare introduced some folks who are working on the next Mass Effect. However, we won’t get more details until development is closer to completion.
“One day, when we’re ready, we’ll have more to share on the next Mass Effect, so thank you for being a part of this journey with us,” writes the Mass Effect team in the blog post. “It’s exceptionally exciting for the team and we’d love to continue sharing glimpses of what we’re working on with you in the future. And, on today of all days, we also want to honor the legacy that got us here.”
Sims fans did get a nice surprise at the end of the blog update. Free Mass Effect-themed clothes and accessories are coming to The Sims 4 on November 17. And with The Sims 4 now free, that means you’ll be able to deck out your sims in the game at no additional credits.
