BioWare has already announced that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will have a stunning 4K display, but fans also want to know the details about the game's characters especially the Ryder family, suits and what to expect in the new alien world. BioWare seems to be busy preparing for the upcoming N7 event where more details will be confirmed.

For now, Mac Walters, creative director of BioWare, teases us with some details on what to expect about the Ryder family, protagonist's new suit and the new alien world. As a start, Walters said that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will be different and not just a sequel. He calls it a "hero journey."

In "Mass Effect: Andromeda," players can choose between a male or female Ryder. The character that the gamer will not choose will still have a role in the story as the two are apparently siblings.

In a report by Digital Trends, the character that was seen in the trailer was a Ryder family patriarch. Though it is clear that familial bond will play a key role in the storyline, fans will still have to wait to see how these relationships will fit together in "Mass Effect: Andromeda."

The new suit of the pathfinder in "Mass Effect: Andromeda" looks like a NASA astronaut's outfit. Mostly white, it does not look combatant or defensive. As Walters said, "Andromeda" will be more of an exploration, and putting the character in an interesting circumstance and see how he behaves or reacts.

The new alien world in "Mass Effect: Andromeda" depicts a very advanced culture with the highest technology in place. Metal and concrete meet organic plants all around.

The characters in this new alien world also have two feet and walk just like humans. But their technology is far more advanced than the Ryder's. Are you excited for the release of "Mass Effect: Andromeda," which is reported to be in March 2017?
