A gameplay trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda was long overdue, and it’s finally here. Premiered at The Game Awards, we finally have some knowledge of what to expect from the upcoming Bioware title.
You can check out the trailer below.
The trailer showcases a lot of details, along with a narration that describes features that make this iteration different from the original trilogy. It looks a lot less cover-based than its predecessors, and a lot more action-packed. We still don’t know whether pausing and issuing commands to your squad are there, but it still looks kickass. You can teleport (or as the game describes it, Biotic Charge) or be like a Pyromancer and shoot flames out of your hands. Finally!
Crafting and resource gathering will also be a focus of the game, which could make use of the scanning device. Driving on planets will make a return, and the game as a whole has a more open-world feel to it. For combat driven players, don’t worry, you’ll get plenty of chances to kill, or be killed (horribly) by alien creatures, both mechanical and biological.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to release for the Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in Spring 2017.
