Several high profile games released in the past few months have launched with some virtual reality add-ons which allowed players to experience portions of these games in a different way. It seems like, however, that BioWare won’t be doing the same with its highly anticipated Mass Effect Andromeda.

Speaking with Stevivor about the possibility of a VR mode for Mass Effect Andromeda, Producer Mike Gamble confirmed that Mass Effect Andromeda won’t have such a mode, although it would be cool.

It would be cool. All I would say is that we would never want to ‘port’ a Mass Effect game to VR. We would want to create a custom experience, if we were to ever do it.

Gamble didn’t deny the possibility of creating a Mass Effect VR game, though, noting how they would want to do a very custom created experience if they were to do it.

Earlier this month, a brand new Mass Effect Andromeda trailer has been shown during this year’s The Game Awards. The trailer, which offered a first look at the actual gameplay, was captured from a real playthrough of the game, as later confirmed by Mac Walters.
