I'll just file this here.  I'm not having the same visceral negative reaction as many of the rest of you, but that's neither here nor there without more to go on.

Lame. No Gameplay just another shitty voice over by EAWare employee saying how amazing it's gonna be.

Pro tip bioware:

Be more like CDProjekt Red, and less like an EA money Wh0re.

Honestly that is one fugly blue bitch. TJ Laser will definitely not smash her puss. Only the hottest blue bitches get the TJ Laser cock!


*Side note, nothing in that trailer impressed me at all. This game is gonna suck*

......I do not find that asari to be ugly.  Butch, certainly, but not ugly.  I also think the new Mako looks slick.  I could do without the fins on the Normandy, but that's a minor thing.  Thing is, that was a non-trailer so it's full of minor things. There's nothing there to get riled up about.

The BSN is annoyed at the lack of info too, but one point of mild interest has come up. The trailer seems to show not 1, but 3 arks, in orbit around an intact Earth. This throws a spanner in the works of their consensus opinion that the ark was built hurriedly during the course of ME3.
This is a bit odd. It means the game would be set long after the galaxy has recovered from the war, meaning that one ending choice would have to be made canon. Weaselling out of canonising one ending was thought to be the main reason for upping sticks to andromeda in the first place.

The BSN... You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

So it looks we're getting there by obligatory Sci Fi "Put them to sleep and wake them up when they get there"... k.

Does anyone have any fucking idea why we're going to Andromeda? That looks like Earth in that final shot (maybe not) didn't look post Reaper war either. I dunno i just feel this story will be a cluster fuck. If this was all done pre reaper war then how did they find the time? If it's post then i'm eager to see which ending they would lock down, anyone choosing the other 2 endings (plus Refuse which is canon by EC) they'll upset a lot more people..

I see no identifying markers making that planet have to be Earth.  It could just as easily be Sur'Kesh as far as I'm concerned.

EDIT: That Asari image amuses me greatly.

I don't see it myself either, but Steelcan mentioned that he saw the outline of the North American Great Lakes over on the BSN. It did seem to be a planet with big, illuminated cities, so not a place under current Reaper attack. Sur'Kesh would actually still be a possibility for building the arks during the Reaper war, although it still makes little sense lore-wise.

I guess this could be where the dark energy thing returns, with whatever whole Crucible-Relay-Reaper event, may be said to have played out, pretty much "spending" the milky way, or something...

Klendagon is actually Mars.  Great Rift from the "mass accelerator weapon of unimaginable power" and all.  Just saying.

It's the power core for the new intergalactic FTL drive from the looks of it.

Maybe it was always supposed to be as such. Less of a "use this to beat the Reapers" and more of a "use this to escape the Reapers" and the message got lost in translation during one of the cycles.

That is absolutely the Crucible in the middle of that. The only thing we KNOW about the Crucible with certainty (i.e. that isn't potentially a hallucination of some kind) is that it's capable of generating huge amounts of energy. This would line up well with the whole, "Power core for a massive ship," thing.

Does that mean there is a crucible in the identical ship in the background...holy shit...why are we leaving the Milky Way again, clearly ressources are not a problem.

Here's another thing.  There's a whole bunch of heavy cruisers (if not dreadnoughts) in that shot, too.  Whatever is going on is going on under heavy guard. The transport shuttles are also tracked with a camera angle that promotes the feeling of breakneck speed and urgency.

Sigh... I'd urge caution in rushing to any judgments.  There are other explanations.  For example:
- IMO, that ship looks more like the Normandy than this does like the Crucible, but we know it is not the Normandy.  Perhaps they're just being lazy hacks and giving old assets a new HD makeover than come up with any more new designs than absolutely necessary.
- Perhaps years of methamphetamine abuse has ravaged their brains and in their most fevered, deranged ravings, they concluded that people liked the Crucible & that pictures of it would get players nostalgic, and that Pepsi tastes better than Coke.
- Maybe they're just trolling as they have SO GOD DAMNED MANY TIMES in the past, and this shot is out of context.  For example, maybe this is shown in a history class that utilizes holograms.  Or perhaps our player character is seeing it in a dream.  They gave us ghosts in Shitadel, why not psychics now that can see perfectly into the distant past?
- Maybe it's a sort of memorial to the Reaper War, or something along those lines.

There's any number of explanations.  I could probably come up with more, but why should I put more thought into this game than BioWare has?
