Mass Effect: Andromeda was announced today and here is the cinematic trailer showcasing an N7 soldier exploring a planet in the Andromeda galaxy (for those who don’t know, the Andromeda galaxy is the nearest major galaxy to the Milky Way).
Mass Effect: Andromeda will be coming holiday 2016 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Bioware posted an article on their blog today discussing the game and here is a snippet:
“When we wrapped up the original Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect 3: Citadel in early 2013, planning and design on Mass Effect: Andromeda was already well underway. We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game.
“While we aren’t ready to go into too many details just yet, as you saw in the trailer and can tell by the name, this game is very much a new adventure, taking place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. You will play a human, male or female, though that’s actually not the character you saw in the trailer (more on that later). You’ll be exploring an all-new galaxy, Andromeda, and piloting the new and improved Mako you saw. And through it all, you will have a new team of adventurers to work with, learn from, fight alongside of, and fall in love with.”
Anybody else get real disappointed by the “you will play a human” part?
