With the Mass Effect world being put on a temporary hiatus so that the studio can focus on their new IP Anthem, and with so many of the original Mass Effect devs working on the upcoming game, it only makes sense that the team would want to pay homage to the legend that is Commander Shepard and the N7 operative.
We've had previous looks at what this armor will look like in the upcoming online title but now we're getting an even closer look at the Storm Javelin's take on the classic red and white design courtesy of BioWare's Art Quality Analyst "Mad Bee":

As a huge Mass Effect fan myself (hello, 29 playthroughs), I am absolutely digging this design and I know without a shadow of a doubt that this will be my go-to customization for my freelancer.
Anthem officially makes its debut on February 22, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players.
