Mass Effect buzz may be at an all-time low given how generally off-put fans were by the release of Andromeda and how inactive the brand is at EA HQ, but the franchise is still popular enough that hardcore fans celebrate N7 day each year on November 7.
To kick off the festivities, today BioWare announced a free update for Mass Effect Andromeda on Xbox One X that adds higher-resolution graphics and HDR support. The update is available now. The studio also put together this video that hints at a brighter future for the dormant franchise:
This sentiment was echoed by longtime Mass Effect developer Mike Gamble as well:
Happy #N7Day to everyone! I love this IP deeply, and we’ve grown together over the years as fans and developers in it. We still have stories left to tell in this universe…the future is bright.
