Mass Effect N7 Day Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary (and Little Else)

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the Mass Effect franchise, but there's little for BioWare to celebrate on this N7 Day.

Today marks N7 Day, the Mass Effect anniversary day. But more than that, today marks ten years of the Mass Effect franchise. With that, BioWare is taking a look back at the last decade in the franchise with a commemorative video.

With today marking ten years of Mass Effect, fans would think that BioWare would at least offer a tease for what's potentially to come. Those people would, of course, be wrong. Those who were hoping for a big announcement or even a slight tease from BioWare regarding Mass Effect's future will come away disappointed. That's because Mass Effect remains on indefinite hiatus with no sign that Electronic Arts will bring it back anytime soon, if ever.

The Mass Effect website details streamer schedules, details on Multiplayer APEX missions for Mass Effect Andromeda, and a note that "We can’t wait to see what the future holds." Of course, whether the Mass Effect franchise even has a future remains to be seen, especially with BioWare Montreal folded into Motive Studios.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      N7 day excitement kinda died, like the franchise.

      First game was amazing, and it went downhill from there. The second game was great too in many ways. Probably never play anything like it again. Isn't the new scifi bioware game Anthem basically a Destiny clone?

        Yeah but less faux magic.

        I hope Anthem does enough to differentiate itself, but it definitely isn't a pure story game anymore. Expert look crates and paid dyes aplenty.

      yeah, try to keep the positive vibes. they went away from renegade/paragon which was a mistake, IMO, and the story COULD have been good if they didn't have so many whoopsies in the beginning. the end sections were pretty cool.

      I do hope mass effect andromeda gets a successor. it's a great platform. andromeda wasn't completely garbage but in many ways was frustrating. the squad stuff was great, skill switching was great, feeling combat effective was awesome. but the macro of the game was quite derpy.
