‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ Release Date, News & Update: BioWare Has Released Its Cinematic Trailer, Story Details Of Andromeda Revealed!
The highly-anticipated game from BioWare has officially released its "Mass Effect: Andromeda" cinematic trailer. But, the official release of the game has not been confirmed yet, except that the developer said that it can arrive in 2017.
BioWare officially introduced "Mass Effect: Andromeda" at E3 last year and fans have been teased with some glimpses of the game ever since. However, the recently released trailer of the game convinced the players that BioWare's "Mass Effect: Andromeda" is definitely worth the wait.
According to Game Informer, "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will send players to outer-space and will see a lot of new alien species. The story of the new game installment dates back around the time of "Mass Effect 2" with Andromeda Initiative.
Andromeda Initiative is about creating four arks that house different alien races and sending them to the Andromeda Galaxy to find a new home. Also, in "Mass Effect: Andromeda," the group who created the "Arks" are set to investigate "Heleus Cluster" and its "golden words." IGN explained that players will only have to play the character of the son or daughter of the leader, or Pathfinder of the human ark.
In fact, Mac Walters, creative director of "Mass Effect: Andromeda," revealed that the game will have a new game focus and set of protagonists. "At the end of this, we want it to feel like a story was completed," Walters added. This means that the game will not start another new trilogy knowing that this is not "Mass Effect 4."
Another revelation from the "Mass Effect: Andromeda" is what players may encounter while exploring the game. The Kett, a non-Milky Way alien species, will be introduced to Andromeda players, but there's no confirmation if the Ketts will be a protagonist or an antagonist. Also, there will be loyalty missions, romance options with player's allies, but the good part is it will not affect the ending of the game.
BioWare did not provide any details yet whether the "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will have several endings, but it assured that the game's story is different from the previous "Mass Effect." Meanwhile, Xbox One users who have not played "Mass Effect 2" and "Mass Effect 3" yet, the backward compatibility of these two are available today.
