Mass Effect: Andromeda
PC, PS4, Xbox One
- Release TBD
Mass Effect: Andromeda trades Commander Shepard for one of the Ryder twins (whichever the player chooses), who will act as the Pathfinder, setting a course through the new BioWare universe on current-gen platforms. Not much is known about the story of Mass Effect: Andromeda at this time, but the developers promise that familiar elements will return, including the biotic powers Ryder can wield, the loyal companion characters, and deep exploration of planets for precious resources.
Thus far, gameplay trailers for Mass Effect: Andromeda have focused on the combat, but the game will continue the series’ legacy of complex dialogue choices, which will affect and mold the story as players progress. As the Pathfinder players will seemingly be less concerned with intergalactic policing and more exploration, discovering new species and planets and getting reacquainted with familiar ones.
BioWare also plans to improve upon the multiplayer concepts introduced in past Mass Effect games to deliver a consistent online experience that keeps players coming back again and again.
