MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA Announcement Trailer - "Discover a New Galaxy" - E3 2105
BioWare has officially announced the fourth game in the Mass Effect franchise. It's called Mass Effect: Andromeda, and it takes the series to a whole new set of locations in the game universe. Some of these locations are teased in the trailer. I absolutely love the western style vibe that the trailer delivers, and as you'ld expect, the visuals are spectacular!
BioWare offered up a few details on the 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.
"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."
It sounds like they are going to be doing some great things with this new game, and trying to push the envelope of what next gen consoles are capable of. Mass Effect is an awesome franchise that has always been a blast to play, and I am excited to see more of what they are cooking up in that studio of theirs.
The game's coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It won't make be released until the holiday season of 2016.
