In the last couple of days, gamers have been treated to more information regarding "Mass Effect: Andromeda." Both Bioware's general manager, Aaryn Flynn and the series producer, Michael Gamble have answered some fan questions over Twitter. Amazon has also revealed some details about the game's collector's edition contents as well as the price.

First of all, Flynn answered a tweet to confirm that the game will not feature a season pass. While the absence of a season pass might apparently indicate that the game will ship as a complete story, it does not entirely mean that there won't be any future DLC content for it. According to a report from Siliconera, the general manager points out that the details about any DLC for the game will be discoursed at a much later time.

Gamble on the other hand, replied to a tweet confirming "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will be featuring an early access period like some of their more recently released titles. Xbox One players who have EA Access as well as PC gamers with Origin Access get to play a portion of the game earlier than other platforms. The previous game demos for "Battlefield 1," "Fifa 17" and "Mirror's Edge: Catalyst" allowed account holders to play an estimated 10-hour segment of the games before the official launch date. Details about the collector's edition of the game also surfaced from Amazon. It apparently costs $200, but strangely fails to include a copy of the game. EA also applied the same sales model with "Battlefield 1's" collector's edition, which only included 14-inch statue, a cloth poster, a deck of playing cards, DLC codes inside a carrier-pigeon message tube, an exclusive patch and a steel book case without the game, WWG reports. However, Andromeda's collector's edition only comes with a remote control Nomad ND1 and a Steel book case.

The Nomad ND1 remote control toy from the collector's edition of "Mass Effect: Andromeda" features a 6-wheel drive with back and front steering, LED headlights with a built-in camera and can be controlled using compatible devices like tablets and smartphones. The game is coming out on March 21, 2017 in the United States, while Europe gets the game two days after on March 23,2017.
