2017's 'Mass Effect: Andromeda' was called 'a missed opportunity' by this very website but the 2021 remaster of the original trilogy has reminded fans and newcomers alike of what made the series so special to begin with.

Details have been thin on the ground for a new entry in the series - for now tentatively called 'Mass Effect 5' - but Bioware recently published a teaser poster for the game.

'Mass Effect Will Continue' the poster reads, but gives no indication of when and where that may be.

The poster, available in high-res on the EA website so you too can comb over every fine detail like the Zapruder film, prominently displays a gang of four walking towards with is unquestionably a Geth impact site.

Eagle-eyed fans have spotted a Krogan and an Asari in the landing crew in the poster, with a human leading the entourage.

The top of a Turian's head is also visible if you squint hard enough.

The Geth are such an iconic part of the series' iconography and lore that Bioware teasing a return of our favourite weird robotic aliens is enough to make a Krogan jump for joy.

The poster was teased as part of the annual 'N7 Day' celebrations and follows on from last year's announcement that the game was in development.

Initially debuting in 2007, the 'Mass Effect' games garnered massive critical and commercial acclaim, with 2010's 'Mass Effect 2' in particular regularly appearing in 'best video games sequels' lists.

2012's 'Mass Effect 3' was widely criticised at launch for its ending, and fan outrage lead to the developers adding in more DLC to flesh out the ending.

With the lengthy nature of game development and another entry in the 'Dragon Age' series also in the pipeline, players are still a few years away from seeing the next entry in the franchise.

Let's hope it goes better than 'Anthem' did.
