Not long ago, we got confirmation that a new Mass Effect game is in development. Today, readers who picked up the new book celebrating BioWare's 25th anniversary have found some more concept art, and are picking out some pretty interesting details.
The concept art started making the rounds via Tumblr (via Eurogamer. You can spot the previously shown "Mud Skipper" screenshot, revealed alongside the announcement of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, but there are also a few new screens. I received my personal copy of the book earlier, and can verify these are legit.
The above picture shows figures in a dark area. Some are speculating it might indicate a return to Andromeda—I'll admit the environment is similar to the jungles of Havarl, but I'm also not holding my breath just yet.
This other image shows what appears to be a Mass Relay, either being repaired or constructed. This could run either way, as the ending of Mass Effect 3 had implications for the state of Mass Effect relays in the Milky Way system, while the Andromeda system could use a few Mass Relays itself.
Finally, the arguably most mysterious image. This definitely looks like Remnant construction, though that arguably also just falls under "general sci-fi future tech look."
Keep in mind this is all concept art, and there's likely a fair bit of development still going on. As for what BioWare has to say about the project, the book's blurb says you can expect "new worlds" and "memorable characters," along with BioWare's usual focus on choice and consequences in the narrative department.
"There's an incredible universe of history to draw from, and many more stories for us to tell," says Mike Gamble, the project director. "We're focusing on creating something truly for the fans."
The rest of the book is chock-full of old BioWare stories, interviews with project members, and looks into projects that never came to light, like BioWare's espionage thriller "Agent." It's frankly a lot of info that looks to be fascinating for those who have been following the studio and its projects for some time.
Also, one quick note for the Dragon Age fans out there craving some more tidbits about the upcoming entry in the series: the book's blurb on the project, which was under the codename "Morrison," confirms it's headed to Tevinter.
