Electronic Arts and BioWare have reaffirmed an early 2017 launch window for Mass Effect: Andromeda across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and confirmed the game’s presence at the EA Play press conference on June 12.
“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,” BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn said in a blog post. “But we’re also excited to be introducing new features and ways you can enjoy a Mass Effect game.”
Mass Effect: Andromeda will feature:
- 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.
Stay tuned for more details on June 12.
