Some new information has surfaced about Mass Effect: Andromeda's main character. The game will feature two versions of its protagonist, both of which exist in the game world at the same time – as they’re brother and sister. In an interview with PlayStation Access, creative director Mac Walters gave players a little more information on their new hero, Ryder.
"What a lot of people don't know, little surprise here, is that these two are brother and sister," Walters said. "And they both exist in the game world at the same time. So if you're playing as the sister Ryder, female Ryder, your brother is somewhere in the universe."
Compared to the original Mass Effect trilogy, players could choose if their character was male or female, but they existed as a single hero in the universe. In a previous interview with Polygon, Walters said that BioWare wanted to move away from focusing on a single character.
Walters added that more of the Ryder family has been unveiled in past promotional material. In the E3 2015 reveal trailer, the character in the iconic N7 armour was their father.
"We've got the full Ryder family full sort of now revealed," Walters said. "We'll do names and things in the future as well."
