Are you anxious to see what Mass Effect Andromeda has in stock for you? Well, the good news is that you won’t have a long time to wait, as the game is slated for launch on the 21st of March in Europe. Moreover, the game’s publisher also announced that the multiplayer mode would also be launched alongside the main game, despite its initial postponement.
It won’t be long before we are able to experience yet another adventure in the Mass Effect Universe. But the question on everyone’s lips right now is what happened after Shepherd defeated the Reapers in Mass Effect III.
Well, it would seem that the third installment of the game was Shepherd’s last encore, meaning that Mass Effect Andromeda will introduce us to a whole new protagonist, new ship, and, even best, a whole new corner of the Universe to explore.
In the fourth installment of the series, you will step into the boots of Scott Ryder or Sara Ryder, depending on what gender you will select in the character creation section. Ryder is tasked with settling the last survivors of humanity in the distant Andromeda galaxy.
From one of BioWare’s trailer, we discover that Ryder will have an enemy called the Archon. So, as far as the game is concerned, we are more than happy to discover that BioWare finally made the leap from linear gameplay to open-world.
Yes, that’s right. In Mass Effect Andromeda you will be forced to roam entire worlds, searching for ancient artifacts, talking to NPCs, forming alliances, searching for cryogenic pods, settling planets, and creating a sustainable economy.
One of the best things we’ve seen so far is that everything is in short supply starting from ammo and weapons, and going all the way up to the exploration vehicle’s environmental shields.
Because BioWare decided to take the high road and create a truly open-world game, you will need to use your wits to unlock the mysteries of a world. Puzzles and challenges will wait for your at every corner and so will the chance to gain important human resources and to forge long-lasting alliances.
The company has also tweaked the fast-travel system. So, instead of hitting a button to travel, you will need to discover or even to set your own fast-travel points. Combat was improved in Mass Effect Andromeda so that you’ll stop feeling like you’re shooting paper targets.
