New Mass Effect: Andromeda Trailer
Happy N7 day folks! Ever since Bioware’s announcement in 2015 that we’d be getting a new addition to the Mass Effect game universe, titled ‘Andromeda’, the following two November 7th’s have been like Christmas for fans of the series. Unfortunately we’ve not really had much to work with when it came to concrete details and gameplay footage. Until today that is…
Enjoy that? Need a moment to watch it all over again? It’s OK, we’ll wait.
Well there we have it, Bioware and EA have finally released what looks to be in-game footage, and it looks pretty fantastic. In amongst the quick cuts and flashes, we can glimpse the central familial twosome that ground this new venture in the Mass Effect Universe, alongside a shot of what could be some of your new squad-mates retreating from some serious firepower. Whether the giant ‘Hyperion’ ship is your home base during this adventure remains to be seen, but the new-look Normandy (will it even be called the Normandy?) seems pretty sleek and clearly plays a central role in the planet to planet travel Mass Effect fans know and love. We also have faint glimpses of what could be Andromeda’s main antagonist, although he does sound a little bit like the voice of the Collectors from Mass Effect 2. Still, if they’re cherry picking moments to ape from the previous trilogy, the Collectors aren’t a bad direction to go in.
No doubt we’ll be getting more information on the game as the day goes on, and with the rumoured March/early 2017 release date looming this is Bioware’s last N7 day to get our expectations and excitement levels up.
What are your thought? Love it? Confused? Let us know!
