Who's making the new Mass Effect?
New Mass Effect could be developed in Unreal Engine 5, and is being made by a Veteran Team at BioWare.
BioWare producer Brenon Holmes has confirmed that Mass Effect 5 will also utilize Unreal Engine via a job posting asking for programmers with Unreal Engine 4 and Unreal Engine 5 experience. The programmers will be working on the new Mass Effect.
What's in the new Mass Effect Trailer?
The trailer showcases two different galaxies, promoting the theory that Mass Effect 5 may be a sequel to both Mass Effect 3 and Mass Effect: Andromeda, telling a story that spans two separate galaxies. At the very least, the game looks to be a proper sequel to Mass Effect 3, as you can see dead Reapers and an older Liara T'Soni in the trailer. Liara is 109 in Mass Effect 3 and her race, the asari, can live close to a 1000 years, so Mass Effect 5 could take place up to 900 years after the events of the original trilogy.
BioWare's new Mass Effect is not yet available for preorder. But we'll have to wait and see.
