Earlier today during Electronic Arts’ E3 press briefing, things of the “OOH, AHH” scale were revealed – one of those darlings being the NEW direction of the Mass Effect series.
According to BioWare’s official blog, the events in Mass Effect: Andromeda take place “far away and long after the events of the original ME trilogy,” and gave more insight to this all-new adventure.
When we wrapped up the original Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect 3: Citadel in early 2013, planning and design on Mass Effect: Andromeda was already well underway. We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game.
While we aren’t ready to go into too many details just yet, as you saw in the trailer and can tell by the name, this game is very much a new adventure, taking place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. You will play a human, male or female, though that’s actually not the character you saw in the trailer (more on that later). You’ll be exploring an all-new galaxy, Andromeda, and piloting the new and improved Mako you saw. And through it all, you will have a new team of adventurers to work with, learn from, fight alongside of, and fall in love with.
Enough talk – let’s roll that beautiful bean footage!
IT’S SO PRETTY…but before you get “Me likey bouncy” excited, you’re in for a wait – ME: Andromeda won’t hit shelves/consoles until Q4 (November/December) of 2016.
I know A LOT of you are ME fans – what say you of this new trailer?
