That's why there's a special day dedicated solely to celebrating the franchise, and that's today. November 7th just happens to be N7 Day. There also happens to be a brand new Mass Effect adventure on the horizon: Mass Effect Andromeda. So, naturally, a special clip premiered today that features a familiar voice: Commander Shepard (the female Shepard, no less) signing off for the last time and passing an important legacy on to whomever comes next.
It's been confirmed that Shepard won't be appearing in the upcoming game, but there are scant details as to who actually will be in the game, so all we've got to go on right now are the bits and pieces BioWare sees fit to give us at the moment. It's still great for a few chills.
