Mass Effect: Andromeda (Holiday 2016)



http://blog.bioware.com/2015/06/15/i...ect-andromeda/

Quote:
While we arenít 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 thatís actually not the character you saw in the trailer (more on that later). Youíll 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.

Kind of disappointed that you can only be a human, but oh well.

I like that they're going for a very "space western" theme.

Mass Effect is a narrative driven RPG, it's hard to make the game multiple-species when that's the setup. They could have changed format of this new game, but that's going against what they've been doing for the series. It's a little disappointing but it doesn't mean we can't enjoy the game.

If Andromeda is about exploring, it's hard to make a game where you can be any race unless all the races are united. And if all the races are united then you lose a lot of story possibilities.

I was hype, but the release date killed said hype kinda.

Still glad to hear it's in the works at least.

18 months isn't too bad. It might get delayed so 20 months may be a better prediction but I can get excited for a game 2 years away.

I thought everything about Mass Effect 3 (sans the ending, which honestly didn't bother me that much) was fantastic. Such an enjoyable experience.

So excited for this next iteration.

Almost everything about the game is incredible. Ya the ending is pretty weak, but overall it's one of the better games I've ever played in my lifetime.

Just one man's opinion, but go for it. You won't regret it.

Especially considering I really enjoyed the second game and have had 3 for two years now

I just never installed Origin on my new PC so I forgot about it

I am hoping there is at least some references to the earlier games. There probably won't be though being that there multiple endings in mass effect 3. I doubt the Reapers will even be brought up in Mass Effect 4.

I was reeeaaally hoping they'd announce the remastered trilogy to go along with it.

Like, come on Bioware, we all know it's coming. Just confirm it for us already so I can get excited for that as well.


That being said, my hype level for this is already at 100%, simply because it's Mass Effect and my top 3 favourite games of all time are all 3 Mass Effect games.

If you remember that the entire game is the "ending" it's spectacular

new rumors:



https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comme...y_information/
  • 2 Squad mates as before, a human blonde and a krogan mentioned
  • All squad mates have jetpacks which come into play in exploration
  • Omnitool has more functionality, for example a combat shield
  • Greater detail in character facial features and models
  • Destructible covers (Yay Frostbite!)
  • Completely different ship (I take it as a step away from the frigate sized ship that we saw in Normandy and towards a larger ship, perhaps the one seen here )
  • Hints at Mako customization
  • 'Pathfinder quarters' section in the ship
  • Main character is referred to as 'the pathfinder'
  • Story revolves around finding a new home for humanity and other races
  • New ship travel system (Instead of the old galaxy map) where you manually fly the ship
  • Enemies (the main opposing force I assume) are bipedal cross between Vorcha and Collectors
  • The (non-human) enemies drop into combat from Cerberus ships (I would assume a placeholder, but if it's not then it gets interesting)
  • One of the antagonists is
    Spoil:
    a human soldier with armor similar to yours but without N7 insignia

Cerberus.........
