Mass Effect: Andromeda release date confirmed [Updated]

Mass Effect: Andromeda is coming out in North America on March 21, 2017 and on March 23 in Europe.

Update

And so it’s here, the new gameplay video from Mass Effect: Andromeda, presented during Nvidia’s show at CES.

Original story

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. The developers are happy about how the works are progressing, and because of this no delays are expected. This is what they wrote about the game’s current state in an official statement:

Over this holiday break, developers at BioWare took home a version of the game in what we call the “holiday build”. This is a longstanding studio tradition that goes back to the early days of the original Mass Effect. Many load up a PC or console and go home to play as much as possible at their leisure. Coming back from holiday, the feedback has been great. Getting the endorsement from members of our studio, many of whom played key roles on the original trilogy, was definitely a key factor in helping us lock in on the date.

Mass Effect: Andromeda will be demoed at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which is starting today and runs through January 8. During Nvidia’s opening show we expect to see a new gameplay footage of the game’s PC version – we’ll update the story when it’s out in the Internet. You can watch the event live-streamed on January 4, 2017 at 6:30 P.M. PST.
