Known from the leaks for a while now, but this is the first we've seen of them.

Squadmate one: EDI in a new body.

Squadmate two: A prothean.

Can't say I'm a fan of the designs.

Presumably those stasis chambers or they were "hiding" in one of those random Prothean artifacts.

Gotta give Joker his chance at love, although it'd be funny if Shepard beat him there. Not that I recommend you to do it, but if you check the Bioware forums it is stupid the amount of people who were asking for this to happen. I actually thought in ME2 they were going to go the route of turns out EDI is a true AI, she goes mad, you have to fight against her by destroying the ship or something but I guess not.

The other character is just... ugh. Doesn't it contradict the previously established fiction?

This was pretty much confirmed bout a year ago, but hey, welcome to last year!

The other character could be explained about being stuck in cryo all this time (that's the easy answer).

Ugh I really want to want this game but the more keeps coming out about it the more it just seems like some sort of crazy amalgamation of god awful ideas. On top of that EDI's design is just so awful, not to mention COMPLETELY out of place. It just looks entirely unappealing.

Like Salvadora said, the more I see of this the less I want it.

As Chinner rightfully points out. I don't really care how they look or why they are designed a certain way. We need a big sign saying "Can be 'romanced'!" or "Don't get your hopes up."

Because a genderless AI that only sounds like a female would need D-cup breasts and child bearing hips.

The Prothean could be neat. Their whole backstory is about the only part of Mass Effect's lore that I found interesting. Hey, I said could be.

Or they found some DNA samples or something and brought one back to life to answer some q's. I mean, this happens in science fiction, right?
