EA just announced Mass Effect: Andromeda, the next game in the sci-fi role-playing action shooter series.
It's due out "holiday 2016". The debut trailer is below.
Here's a message from Aaryn Flynn, Studio General Manager, BioWare Canada, and Yanick Roy, Studio Director, BioWare Montreal, about the game. The pair confirm you play as a human, male or female, and the game takes place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy.
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.
We built this trailer in Frostbite, our game engine, and it represents our visual target for the final game. We are thrilled by what we've already been able to achieve in bringing Mass Effect to Frostbite and by putting our entire focus on PC and current gen consoles. With the time remaining in development, we're excited about the possibility to push things even more.
