Fans are reportedly expecting a lot of stuff to do like flirting with companions and crafting item using the new system in BioWare's upcoming "Mass Effect: Andromeda." The developer promised a lot of things to keep fans occupied and just recently talked about the game's bountiful side quests. Unlike the previous installments, wherein the extra missions reportedly felt tedious, Andromeda appears to offer some adjustments to enhance its gameplay.

According to PC Gamer, the game's producer Fabrice Condominas acknowledges the problem with side quests in almost all of the developer's past games. He pointed out that most players tend to favor completing all available side quests in a chapter or area before proceeding with the main storyline. Condominas apparently does not want to stop players from doing that, but hints that they are considering different approaches to dissuade the behavior.

The "Mass Effect: Andromeda" producer reportedly names CD Projekt RED's "The Witcher 3" as a game with the right approach to its side quests. It seems BioWare also want to model their extra missions in a way that it creates an impact on the player. Condominas wants the quests to be more "meaningful" in order to leave a lasting impression on gamers. The production team also confirmed that they are looking at other games for reference.

Fans will obviously favor the new direction taken by the developer to further improve "Andromeda's" gameplay experience says Game Rant. Due to "The Witcher 3" being an award-winning game, sources believe that the upcoming changes to the sci-fi RPG will be well-received by its fans. Other reports claim that the publisher has also revisited its older installments to analyze what went wrong, which gives them enough time to make final adjustments before the game launches.

A recent report from Gamenguide also reveals that "Mass Effect Andromeda" won't be featuring the Renegade and Paragon morality system of its predecessors. The BioWare RPG is reportedly launching for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, on March 21, 2017.
