It wasn’t so much those four words alone that gave me the feels. It was an image just beforehand that sealed the deal. But it was still a darn good way to end a reveal trailer.
It’s hard to imagine any Mass Effect fan not tearing up a bit tonight. Even those among us who lost some heart in the epic space franchise following a somewhat less-than-stellar 2017 spinoff should be as wide-eyed as I am about a trailer that ends with Dr. Liara T’Soni holding a trinket shaped like a Mass Relay that just so happens to have an N7 logo on it. Does this mean more Shepard? Somehow? In some way?
Who’s to say? It would be a crazy feat of logistics, technology, and narrative prowess if it happened. But even if that’s not the case, that was Liara T’Soni. I can’t stop shaking. Apologies to readers who weren’t hit as hard by this as I was; it’s hard penning an objective news story when a dream comes true before your eyes.
“Mass Effect will continue.”
I suppose, for the moment, there’s little more to say. But what a way to awaken the Normandy lovers in us all.
