New teaser image for Mass Effect 5: Human mass portals?
While the Mass Effect trilogy relied on ancient mass portals built by a long-lost civilization, the teaser hints at a groundbreaking development: is there going to be a human-brand mass portal being built?
Human mass portal in Mass Effect 5? The elongated shape with the rotating ring element suggests a replica of the iconic fast travel portals. Source: Bioware The shape is definitely reminiscent of the mass portals, just with the rather angular look that we know from human space stations and spaceships from Mass Effect. Appropriately, fans have also decoded a voice message in which Commander Shepard’s asari girlfriend is talking about a mysterious topic. The unmistakable sounds of the geth people ring out. Liara herself says: “Exactly. The Council will be furious. Although they should know by now that human defiance should not be underestimated.” This suggests that the Alliance has ignored Council decisions and built mass portals.
Teaser text: Small jump in time for Mass Effect 5?
The text from the teaser image also causes a lot of discussion among Mass Effect fans. Finally, there is direct talk of a “vacuum-dock relay”, which also suggests a mass portal. On top of that, there is the indication “11_07_90”, which suggests N7-Day, i.e. November 11th – only with a 90 as the year.

For comparison, Mass Effect 3 was set in the year 2186. Accordingly, it is possible that the sequel takes place only a few years after the trilogy finale, namely in the year 2190. This would argue against the series taking place long after the adventures of Shepard . Of course, this is primarily a matter of puzzles for the Mass Effect community – none of this has been officially confirmed. But what do you think of these theories?
