In the last couple of days we’ve learned some interesting facts about Mass Effect: Andromeda.

You can now start counting the days until the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda, because the exact launch date has been officially confirmed. The next chapter of BioWare’s epic space saga is coming out on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 in North America and two days later, March 23, in Europe, across all platforms: PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. A new gameplay footage was also presented during Nvidia’s opening show at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show.
BioWare decided to shed some light on one of the two new alien races in Mass Effect: Andromeda revealed so far: the Kett. This intelligent species native to the Andromeda galaxy will be slightly more organic than their Milky Way counterparts in terms of armor as well as their structures and architecture. The Kett will be the main antagonist race in Mass Effect: Andromeda. Representatives of this species will have a human-like silhouette, but they will be characterized by their bone armor and a bone collar on the back of their head.
The much anticipated Mass Effect: Andromeda trailer has been revealed today to celebrate this year’s N7 Day. The video introduces an epic new story, which is going to take the player into the Andromeda galaxy and let them become a Pathfinder, humanity’s only hope to survive in this unfamiliar environment. It also confirms the spring 2017 release window as well as shows off some tasty pieces of gameplay, featuring new kinds of alien beasts and someone who appears to be the game’s antagonist.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently slated for release in EA’s fiscal year 2016, which means it should be out before the end of March 2017. However, the publisher openly admitted that they won’t hesitate to delay the next chapter in the Mass Effect space saga - even by 5 months if necessary. EA wants to make sure that they are going to deliver “the right player experience”. At the same time they also said they are very pleased with the game’s progress thus far.
So far the only official info on the release date of Mass Effect: Andromeda mentioned early 2017, but it appears that Amazon knows better. According to the information in the online store, the game may come out on Tuesday, March 21, 2017. Although this date is set for The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda hardcover book, the item description says it is going to release simultaneously with the game. Are the guys at Amazon simply using a placeholder, or have they prematurely revealed Mass Effect: Andromeda actual release date?
The very first Mass Effect: Andromeda gameplay footage has been finally shown at PlayStation Meeting. The video was recorded on the newly revealed PlayStation 4 Pro, nicknamed Neo, in 4K resolution. In it we can see a fragment of the game, in which Ryder and his team are exploring an alien station, ending with a cut-scene. Interestingly, BioWare also said that a new trailer will be available on November 7. On that date, “the gates to the next chapter of the Mass Effect universe will be officially opened”.
The distance separating us from Mass Effect: Andromeda’s release might be greater than we previously thought, but at the same time it’s just about right to fill it with a few remasters. And with Activision’s successful (at least financially) resurrection of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting closer, perhaps the time has come to make some decisions regarding the reinvention of the cosmic series.
Mass Effect: Andromeda—the fourth installment in the bestselling sci-fi action RPGs by BioWare—will not acknowledge any of the available endings of Mass Effect 3, as stated by BioWare’s General Manager. The game is supposed to be a new chapter in the franchise, constructed so as to allow our past decisions to remain canon without having to settle on one particular option. Andromeda is set to launch in early 2017 and although first teased at E3 2014, we still haven’t seen one minute of actual gameplay footage.
Electronic Arts has presented their fiscal report and it gave us a chance to look at EA’s future plans. FY 2017 will bring as Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, the next installment in the Battlefield series, a sequel to Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall and – finally – Mass Effect: Andromeda. Bad news for the fans of BioWare – it seems that we will explore the new galaxy just a little bit later than expected.
This year's E3 conference of Electronic Arts kicked off with a bang thanks to the official announcement of Mass Effect Andromeda – the fourth installment in the hit series Mass Effect.
