A series of new Mass Effect novels are on the way via publishing house Titan Books. The stories will tie the original trilogy into EA and Bioware’s upcoming revitalisation of the popular game franchise, Mass Effect: Andromeda.
The novels will serve as both prequels and sequels to the in-game events, and will add to the overarching Mass Effect storyline. Further, according to Fiction Rights Guide, each book will focus on key characters, “answering the many questions fans have been asking.”
The first book is titled Mass Effect: Andromeda Initiation, and is written by fantasy author N.K. Jemisin. It will release this August, with the next three books coming out March 2017, September 2017, and March 2018.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to release in early 2017. According to an interview with Bioware head Aaryon Flynn, no one choice made in the original trilogy will impact Andromeda.
