Electronic Arts is set to release the new sequel of the "Mass Effect" series, the fourth installment of the franchise entitled "Mass Effect: Andromeda." The new trailer has been released and some gameplay footage was revealed.

"Mass Effect: Andromeda" features a much larger world compared to the "Mass Effect 3." The trailers are showing that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" has four races around the Milky Way including Asari, Krogan, Salarian and of course the Humans according to the Euro Gamer. Though it has never mentioned any character for the "Mass Effect: Andromeda," a name Drack and Cora were iterated by BioWare.

"Mass Effect: Andromeda" will be retaining one of its greatest features -- players will still be engaged in a romantic relationship. BioWare said before that this feature will still be included in the upcoming series along with the highly criticized same-sex relationship.

In addition, "Mass Effect: Andromeda" offers a wide range of side missions and quest which definitely put every player on their seat for long hours of play. There is also the so-called Strike Team Mission which can be played in Multiplayer mode with up to three players.

Mac Walter, the creative director of "Mass Effect: Andromeda" stated that they designed an IP that could allow users to show all the trilogy species, according to Gamespot. Unfortunately, they cannot be available in the first game. But the creative director assures that players will still meet all the original trilogy species in the near future. The Tempest will also accompany the players on their ships and there are some species added that were not seen in the previous series.

"Mass Effect: Andromeda" developer Bioware claimed that Andromeda is the biggest game ever. The fans could also expect some more Andromeda games along the way. However, it pointed out that having a trilogy has no significance. "Mass Effect: Andromeda" is set to be released in March of 2017. Are you excited for its release? Share your thoughts below.
