A short teaser is enough to bring back a lot of pleasant memories to fans of the Mass Effect franchise and, despite BioWare's recent troubles, the company is now on the path to a new chapter of the game's universe. Sadly, the game is still "in the early stages," and there is no launch date to talk about yet.

Less than a day ago, BioWare revealed the long-awaited news about the upcoming Mass Effect game at this year's The Game Awards show, which took place as a virtual event for the first time in its history. Just as expected, there is also a short trailer that doesn't reveal much but can bring back quite a few memories to those familiar with the series.

The trailer, which you can see embedded at the end of this article, is shorter than 2 minutes, but Liara T'Soni can be distinguished and the short sequence that shows her managed to push some of those watching as far as bursting into tears. There is also a Reaper sound that can be heard, not to mention the final frame where three other characters are shown.

Sadly, the aforementioned final frame does not hint that we could see Garrus or Commander Shepard returning. Since Liara has wrinkles and the asari are supposed to live for around a millennium, the only logical deduction is that the action takes place a few centuries after the events that unfolded in Mass Effect 3.

However, the game is still in an early stage and BioWare did not reveal anything about the launch date or at least when we should expect to see more of Mass Effect 4 or whatever the game will be called. Any thoughts? Feel free to hit the comments section, as usual.
