Following on from its N7 Day teaser last week, developer Bioware and publisher EA have released a new trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda. In it, you’ll get a brief look at the places you’ll visit, companions you’ll meet, and a rather short reveal for a new villain.
Also revealed is a mission-briefing of sorts, detailing the Andromeda Initiative – an in-fiction space exploration program. The journey to seek out a new home for humanity past their own galaxy will be a one-way trip, fraught with danger, GameSpot reports.
"600 years from now you will awake from cryostasis on the outskirts of the Andromeda galaxy," says the narrator. "Most of you will be aboard Arc Hyperion while the rest will travel on the Nexus with me."
Multiple other species are also performing their own expansion into uncharted territory under the same initiative.
Mass Effect 2 and 3 were also made available today on Xbox One, via backwards compatibility. This means that the entire original trilogy can be played on Microsoft’s latest system.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to release in March, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
