Mass Effect: Andromeda Announced

Runtime: 1:51    Author: biowaremasseffect    Category: Trailers

EA opened their E3 press conference by unveiling Bioware's Mass Effect: Andromeda in a new trailer.

While the trailer does not show any gameplay, it presents a first look at a number of new planets as well as a mysterious character whose face is never seen. A new desert planet, tundra environment and acidic, volcanic areas are all shown in sequence, with a giant flying creature notable against a mountainous landscape.

A post on Bioware's official blog provides some context to the trailer, which takes place in a galaxy far from the events of the first trilogy, in a time many years after the events of Mass Effect 3. The post states that players will once again have the ability to create a unique character (male or female) and recruit a crew to explore the Andromeda Galaxy with. The post further states that the character in the trailer is not standing in for the player avatar, though this is not explored in depth. They also confirm that the ship seen in the trailer is an improved Mako that will take players around the galaxy.

The Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer was built with Bioware's Frostbite engine, with the post stating that the trailer represents the studio's visual goal for the final experience.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is due for release in the Holiday period of 2016 for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.

Holiday period of 2016. Is that Christmas next year? Sweet trailer. Would be cool if it actually looked like that in gameplay.

I wonder if they'll have choices from ME 1-3 that affect anything in ME: Andromeda.
