What Does N7 Mean to You?

Normandy (1024x1024)With fall on our doorsteps and the long dark Canadian winter not far off, we here at BioWare are always on the lookout for bright spots to get us through the next few frigid months. That’s is why this N7 Day, we want to hear about what the iconic symbol means to you. Whether you got a tattoo or a bumper sticker, met your spouse, or named your kid Tali, we want to know how N7 has impacted your life.

Each year at cons and events, we hear countless stories from fans that make us laugh, cry, and appreciate how much Shep and crew mean to our fans. But as much as we’d like to, we can’t be everywhere, and we can’t meet everyone. That’s why we’d love it if you took the opportunity to put together a video on what N7 means to you and share it with us using the hashtag #N7Day14.

We’ve got plenty more up our sleeves for N7 Day, so stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

For more inspiration, check out this video on the amazing fan art wall we built in our Montréal studio.

All a stir for Alistair

Steve Valentine, the voice of Alistair, isn’t just the king of Ferelden—he’s the king of our hearts. His smooth accent is unmistakable, which is probably why so many Dragon Age fans recognize him on sound alone.
He’s had nothing but positive interactions with our fans at conventions and in public—that is, until he met our community manager, Jessica Merizan.
Swooning, it turns out, is also bad.

BioWare Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity

While making games is our passion, we also love the community we live in and try to give a little something back whenever we can. Recently, the BioWare team volunteered with Habitat for Humanity here in Edmonton, helping to build homes for a great cause.

Habitat 2

The Neufeld Landing project is the largest Habitat for Humanity build in Canada. When it’s finished, it will give 64 families a place to live.

We dispatched 21 eager BioWarians to spend two days working on the build in Edmonton’s Rutherford neighbourhood. It was an enriching experience, and a true privilege to work with the great Habitat team making a difference in our community. While our day job is creating virtual worlds to delight and surprise our players, it’s always nice to help make the real world a little better too.
