EA debuted the first cinematic trailer for their next game, Mass Effect: Andromeda. While the company is still many months away from the game’s release date, which is said to be holiday 2016, the company couldn’t wait to let fans get a sneak peak into what they’ve been working on. EA released a press release giving fans a more in depth look into the game.
“When we wrapped up the original Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect 3: Citadel in early 2013, planning and design on Mass Effect: Andromeda was already well underway. We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game.
While we aren’t ready to go into too many details just yet, as you saw in the trailer and can tell by the name, this game is very much a new adventure, taking place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. You will play a human, male or female, though that’s actually not the character you saw in the trailer (more on that later). You’ll be exploring an all-new galaxy, Andromeda, and piloting the new and improved Mako you saw. And through it all, you will have a new team of adventurers to work with, learn from, fight alongside of, and fall in love with.”
EA has released a trailer that shows off the games engine and shows their visual target for the final game. As we get close to the end of the year, the company will be giving out more information on the upcoming game.
