Mass Effect Andromeda is one day away from its full release. A 10-hour demo has been available all week to EA Origin members & the full version of the game is in the press hands. You’ve seen the backlash the game has received surrounding the games facial animations & story, but some of you don’t care. You’re picking up the game regardless based off the gameplay you’ve seen.
But what if you’re unfamiliar with the Mass Effect universe? Do you need to know anything about Mass Effect before trying Andromeda? No! I currently have 40hrs on the game (working on my review) & some easter eggs tie the original trilogy to this Andromeda, but you’ll be able to follow Andromeda perfectly fine without having any history with the series. But if you’re curious about the lore of the original trilogy, then Youtube channel GameRanx did a great job summarizing the first three games in eight minutes.
