Electronic Arts showed off a two-minute video showcasing the progress of their Mass Effect Trilogy follow-up, Mass Effect Andromeda, today during their EA Play conference.
Unfortunately Mass Effect Andromeda is still too far away to attach a release date (2017 is the vague promise), but we got a great look at the various worlds that await players by then, as well as some half-second peeks at the creative process behind the game.
As BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn explained, “you are the alien” in the Andromeda galaxy — while past Mass Effect games have taken place in well-colonized areas where the various species knew who you were, in ME: Andromeda you’re among a group of colonists visiting a planetary cluster for the first time. “At the heart of Mass Effect: Andromeda is a question: How far will we go?” Flynn said. “…Everything is new.”
Andromeda will also have an online mode, but nothing is known about it at this time. EA is targeting Mass Effect: Andromeda for a 2017 release in this galaxy.
