That time of the year when everybody puts on their N7 hoodie and starts replaying the Mass Effect trilogy is almost here. N7 Day was invented by developer Bioware in order to give us a yearly reminder of just how awesome the series is, so you better prepare yourself because you’ll be hearing a lot about Mass Effect this Saturday. Unfortunately, it seems like the focus will probably be on the trilogy instead of Mass Effect Andromeda because Bioware revealed in a new blog post that there will be no “major announcements” regarding the upcoming title on N7 Day.
Presumably, this means no trailer, plot details or anything else of importance, which is a bit strange if you ask me since this would be a perfect opportunity to announce something new about Mass Effect Andromeda. Then again, the developer did say there won’t be any major announcements, so maybe there will be some minor ones? Either way, N7 Day is just around the corner and we’ll be able to find out what Bioware is planning in just a few short days.
Now, just because the developer won’t talk much (or at all) about Mass Effect Andromeda this Saturday, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep an eye on all the other activities scheduled for N7 Day. First off, Bioware will be hosting a livestream marathon on Twitch in an attempt to help raise money for the Extra Life charity. The developers will be playing the Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC and you can apparently chat with them and maybe even win some prizes if you tune in, so make sure you keep an eye out on that. The stream will kick off this Saturday at 9am PST and you will be able to watch it at this link right here.
For a chance to win even more mystery prizes, also make sure to follow the Bioware and Mass Effect Twitter accounts. Also, it seems there will be some limited-time deals on N7 merch over on the Bioware store and there’s even an N7 limited edition Loot Crate that you can pre-order right now and have it at your doorstep just in time for Christmas. Although you can already pre-order the crate, its contents have not been revealed, however, I’m willing to bet good money that there’s some pretty cool stuff inside.
