Teaser image for Mass Effect 5: Lots of hidden little details
The published teaser image for Mass Effect 5 superficially shows a top view of an impact crater, while a typical Mass Effect spaceship is parked not far from it. Also recognizable are four figures who have probably got out of the spaceship to approach the crater and a figure lying on the ground.
It is interesting that the design of the impact crater was modeled on the head of a geth. And the figure lying on the ground also seems to be the destroyed body of a geth machine being. On the four figures, however, the red armor of a krogan can be seen. Is it even Wrex himself? The blue and white armor of the other characters, however, suggest a reference to the Andromeda Initiative. With Mass Effect 5, will Bioware perhaps merge elements from both galaxies (Milky Way and Andromeda) in a new story? It will be a little while before we find out – after all, the release of Mass Effect 5 is still a long way off (only after Dragon Age 4, which will take at least another year).
In another piece of news to the Mass Effect series, the lost DLC Pinnacle Station could be added again thanks to a mod from the Master Effect Legendary Edition. This was the only extra content that was missing from the Remaster Collection because the original source code was lost. While Bioware shied away from the months of work to restore the DLC, a team of fans has now done it and fixed bugs in the meantime. You can read about the adventure of restoration in detail on the blog entry. You can download the Pinnacle Station DLC here from Nexus Mods.
