Very little has been said about Mass Effect Andromeda, the new entry of the role playing game series developed by BioWare, in recent times, but it seems like EA and BioWare are gearing up to show more of the game very soon.
In a new blog post on the official Mass Effect blog, BioWare's general manager Aaryn Flynn has shared an update on Mass Effect Andromeda, what players should expect out of this epic role playing and, most importantly, when we will be able to see more of the game in action.
With Mass Effect™: Andromeda, our team at BioWare™ is exploring how far they can take this beloved franchise. Yes, we’re building the best of what we all love about Mass Effect – amazing stories, characters and fun third-person shooter combat – and bringing them along with us on the expedition to Andromeda. But we’re also excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game.
• More Freedom: One of our biggest ambitions is to give players an unprecedented level of freedom for a Mass Effect experience –where you’ll go, how you’ll get there, and how you’ll play.
• New Uncharted Worlds: We’re leaving the Milky Way behind and headed to Andromeda, where we’ll meet new allies, confront new enemies, and explore fascinating new worlds.
• The Next Great Mass Effect Experience:Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game for today’s consoles and the first built on the Frostbite engine. We’re pushing the technology to deliver visuals, story, and gameplay that have never been done in franchise history.
Aaryn Flynn mentions in today's post that the team has been playing the game at the studio recently and he feels like they're taking the game in the right direction. The team, however, needs the right amount of time to make sure they can deliver the best game they can, and so it's been confirmed that Mass Effect Andromeda will ship in early 2017. Thankfully, it won't take much longer to learn more about the game, as Mass Effect Andromeda will be shown at the EA Play press conference on June 12th.
Mas Effect Andromeda will be released in early 2017 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
