"We're very happy to welcome the fans back to the Mass Effect
universe," said Aaryn Flynn, VP and GM of BioWare. "The team's vision
for this epic new chapter was to take what our fans love about Mass
Effect - great characters and combat - and add more emphasis on
exploration while telling a different type of story. We're following a
group of characters who are just starting their heroic journey, and we
can't wait for our fans to discover more about them and this new galaxy."
The story opens after a 600-year journey to the Andromeda galaxy, as the
crew begins searching for a new home for humanity. The dreams of easy
settlement are quickly shattered, as worlds expected to be paradises are
instead wastelands, and the Pathfinder discovers that not all
inhabitants of the galaxy welcome humanity. Terrifying enemies will
challenge players and their crew, forcing them to utilize destructible
environments, vertical movement through boosted jumps, customizable
weapons, Biotics and other tools in their arsenal to even the playing
field in a combat system and character progression that is more
thrilling and open than ever.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will also feature a separate team-based
online multiplayer mode where players can engage in fast, fluid and
frenetic combat to work together and achieve success. Utilizing combat
skills, strategies, weapons and abilities gained from the field, players
must coordinate to take down overwhelming forces.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is developed by BioWare and is available
now on Origin for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in North America and
starting March 23rd in Europe.
