BioWare has shared a blog post reminding Mass Effect fans that today happens to be N7 Day, an unofficial day for celebrating all things related to the lauded sci-fi franchise. This year’s event seems relatively quiet in comparison to 2020, which gifted the announcement of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, but BioWare has still managed to scrounge up some goodies for today’s event such as Steam stickers. Mass Effect Legendary Edition is also on sale at Steam, Origin, and the Microsoft Store for fans who haven’t gotten their hands on the brilliant collection of new remasters yet.
- Steam Stickers! If you’re a Steam user, you may have already noticed the brand-new Mass Effect Stickers available in the Steam store.
- Sales! You’ll also find Mass Effect Legendary Edition on sale for a special N7 Day price on Steam, Origin, and the Microsoft Store — but only for a limited time, so get on it.
- Cosplay! Not only do we have brand-new cosplay guides to help you craft the perfect costume, we also enlisted renowned creator Soylent Cosplay to develop a how-to video to walk you step-by-step through one of her legendary Mass Effect costumes.
- Contest! Share your best Mass Effect art and get a chance to score sweet loot. Just post on Twitter using the hashtag #BioWareGiveaway for your chance to win.
- GIFs! While you weren’t looking, we created a page on Giphy specifically for Mass Effect GIFs. Now the crew of the Normandy can help you say what mere words cannot.
As for Mass Effect 4, BioWare opted not to drop any news regarding the highly anticipated sequel for N7 Day but did promise that it was “hard at work” on the next adventure. BioWare veterans Mac Walters and Mike Gamble also discussed how much they enjoy interacting with fans in person, which suggests that some news might come by way of an upcoming convention.
“I can’t wait to answer fans’ questions in person!” Mac says. “Whether it’s panels, or signings, or BioWare Base…it’s always fun to just be in the room with the fans and let them ask whatever they want.”
“Meeting franchise fans is always cool,” agrees Mike, “and it’s good to see how the games have impacted people’s lives. Personally though, I miss the cosplay. I remember at San Diego Comic Con a number of years back, how many groups of Mass Effect cosplayers there were. I want to see that continue. And hopefully, we can create new characters that everyone will love and continue the tradition.”
