Mass Effect 3 Dev Sheds Light on Easter Egg Mystery After 10 Years

One of the devs working on Mass Effect 3 revealed the secret of a hidden easter egg, which to this day has not been discovered in a normal way by the players. The surprise prepared by the creator can be encountered during a mission on Mars.

It's rare that easter eggs placed by developers in video games remain undiscovered for many years, especially if we're dealing with very large and popular title. Richard Boisvert, one of the original designers of Mass Effect 3, revealed on Reddit the secret of his hidden surprise, which none of the players has come across in the intended way until now.

Boisvert's easter egg can be found while completing a mission on the surface of Mars. To unlock it, after landing on the planet we head straight to the solar panels, and then maneuver around them following a predetermined path, which the devs showed on the map attached to his post. Shortly after, a small rover will approach our character, and give us a simple signal, moving its cameras placed on the boom. We will unlock the secret both in the original version of the game and in its remaster, which is part of the Legendary Edition released last month. This fact has already been confirmed by fans.

The vehicle was found already a year ago by Reddit user Marcus_Khaar, who used a mod enabling him to freely operate the camera in the game. However, the rover remained stationary and its purpose was a complete mystery until now.
