Close to its March release, EA/Bioware’s next instalment in the beloved Mass Effect franchise, Mass Effect: Andromeda, is beginning to look more tantalising and breathtaking than ever before. As the next trailer for the game has been revealed online – showcasing the Frostbite 3 game engine’s next-gen cinematics.
And boy, it looks incredible…
In the video, we get glimpses of the various characters joining protagonist Scott/Sara Ryder on the Pathfinder team. Including the Asari Peebee, an unnamed Krogan and what looks to be the first female Turian. Which up until now, has not been seen in the series.
Check out the cinematic trailer below:
Mass Effect: Andromeda takes place 600 years after the events of the first three Mass Effect games, in the Andromeda Galaxy. The player character’s intergalactic journey began during the time in which Mass Effect 2 takes place, separating the new setting from the events of the third game. Players choose from either a male or a female sibling with the other continuing to feature in the story. They are the children of Alec Ryder – an N7 special forces soldier – and are designated as Pathfinders, operatives tasked with discovering new planets for the Human species to colonize. They explore an open world galaxy aboard the starship Tempest. The game will be released for Playstation 4, XBOX One and Windows on March 21st in the U.S, and March 23rd in Europe.
