No loading screen feature for 'Mass Effect: Andromeda'

Gamespot reports that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will no longer feature a loading screen when players are aboard the Tempest. This means, players will no longer be standing on elevators or waiting to be scanned while running around the ship.

Harold Chaput says that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will have a smoother gameplay and will all be very seamless. Chaput added that the problem with the previous games were the memory limitation and loading limitation, which took most of the time in playing the game, but without the loading screens, it makes it easier to make a rich and full environment for the players to enjoy.
