Who are these mysterious new races?

Rumours floating around the internet today have indicated that the next Mass Effect 4 game might, actually, be more closely tied to the events of Commander Shepard the the trilogy storyline than BioWare have previously claimed.
A poster on the Indoctrination Theory forums claimed (in September actually, but it seems to have only just been noticed now) to have attended a small, private panel at PAX Prime this year. During this panel 21 hardcore BioWare fans were asked for their input on a number of concept art pieces and overall story themes, including the question of the importance of N7 — indicating that BioWare may be considering a continuation of the existing storyline/universe rather than a prequel.
Two new races were reportedly shown at the meeting, a new gaunt, skeletal race described as “arrogant” and a powerful, “ancient, guardian” race that looked like “sleek rocky or metallic bodies with bright glowing lines flowing all over them”.
If the rumours are to believed, BioWare are looking to make Mass Effect about “exploration and discovery again”, which sounds neat. Check it all out here, and take it maybe with a grain of salt.
