EA has shown a new trailer for Mass Effect Andromeda and revealed more story details for its highly anticipated RPG follow up to the amazing Mass Effect trilogy. Familiar alien species from the original trilogy appeared in the video, including what looked like Asari and Krogan characters. Their EA presentation described the main character as being tasked with travelling “millions of years” into the future, waking up in a new galaxy called Andromeda. A ship named Tempest also appeared, as well as having driving sequence.
Bioware General Manager Aaryn Flynn has said:
With Mass Effect™: Andromeda, our team at BioWare™ is exploring how far they can take this beloved franchise. Yes, we’re building the best of what we all love about Mass Effect – amazing stories, characters and fun third-person shooter combat – and bringing them along with us on the expedition to Andromeda. But we’re also excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game.
• More Freedom: One of our biggest ambitions is to give players an unprecedented level of freedom for a Mass Effect experience –where you’ll go, how you’ll get there, and how you’ll play.
• New Uncharted Worlds: We’re leaving the Milky Way behind and headed to Andromeda, where we’ll meet new allies, confront new enemies, and explore fascinating new worlds.
• The Next Great Mass Effect Experience: Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game for today’s consoles and the first built on the Frostbite engine. We’re pushing the technology to deliver visuals, story, and gameplay that have never been done in franchise history.
Mass Effect: Andromeda – Coming early 2017 to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One
