In an event where Sony officially announced their latest gaming console, the PlayStation 4 Pro, the makers of the game "Mass Effect: Andromeda" was also there to show off their upcoming game to the fans. In a few more months BioWare will launch the "Mass Effect: Andromeda." However, while the fans are still waiting, BioWare continues to tease them by releasing trailers and sneak peeks of the game.

According to a report from International Business Times, the leading character Ryder will be having a default first name just like Shepard in the previous installment of "Mass Effect." Mac Walters, the creative director of BioWare, said that there will be defaults for lead characters name but "Mass Effect: Andromeda" players can change them. So, for all the players that don't want to use Ryder, they can change it to whatever they like.

Most of the fans think that the male and female leading characters of the game "Mass Effect: Andromeda" are the same person. But, according to a report from GameSpresso, they are siblings. So, if you will be choosing the female character, you will be playing as the sister and your brother is somewhere in the universe. It is also reported that the N7 armor figure that was shown on the original announcement trailer is the father of the two leading characters.

Fans can also expect that there will be new races that will be added in "Mass Effect: Andromeda." And because the game will occur on Andromeda, the map will be four times bigger compared to the past installments of "Mass Effect" and players are expected to have a lot of time to explore the whole map.

The "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will surely give the players a whole new gaming experience with its 4K display. The game will have its initial release on March 2017; it will be playable for PlayStation 4 Xbox One and PC. To know more news and updates about "Mass Effect: Andromeda," stay tuned to GamenGuide.
