Ever since Mass Effect: Andromeda was announced fans have been asking Bioware for additional details and game footage, but the only footage fans received was the short series of trailers and gameplay footage that was presented at Sony’s PS4 Pro launch event. The Mass Effect franchise benefited from great success the past few years because of the high quality gameplay and story line it presented alongside other factors, but it seems that the next game installment will set the bar even higher.

Fans of the franchise were expecting Bioware to continue Commander Sheppard’s adventures, but considering the way the last Mass Effect game ended that couldn’t be possible. Instead, the new Mass Effect game takes place 600 years after what happened in the previous game installment and the story line receives a fresh start. Players will now get the chance to play as one of the Ryder siblings and assume the role of a Pathfinder which is the best humanity has to offer. The Pathfinder is versed in many roles being a combination of a guide, elite soldier and explorer.

Great news for Mass Effect: Andromeda fans, new gameplay footage has been posted by Bioware and it showcases the game’s amazing graphics, new weapons, game mechanics and especially the combat. The game’s action will be set in a different galaxy that’s completely unknown and the trailer shows off some pieces of the new map areas and the dialogue among the players’ party members, which is something Bioware definitely excels at. The most interesting part was the combat system, it looked entirely different from what we are used to and the cool new weapons look like they will be a lot of fun to play with. The game looks promising and more importantly it looks like it’s a lot of fun, let’s just hope Bioware will release additional game footage.

  1. A lot of the gameplay sounds like what I had hoped No Man’s Sky to be. I honestly prefer a limited number of scripted worlds to “infinite” procedurally generated ones as long as there’s enough variety.

    I just hope this game has as an impactful story as the original Mass Effect had. Above all else it was a good RPG and hope that stays true.

  2. From this video, I’m a bit worried they’re trying to turn it into a Halo clone.

  3. I’m having trouble seeing it? Looks like an iteration of all the past ME games, maintaining the gameplay, visual style, and themes of them as well. It’s still third person, there’s evidence that the classes are retained (shield vs charge in various scenes), the armor/aliens/planets don’t seem to be aping Halo… except maybe the trope of various sized enemies presenting different challenges… And it appears to be a story filled with choice, with themes of cooperation/division among the races and factions you meet.

  4. Aside from being set in outer space, like the first three Mass Effect games, and being a shooter (though third person and heavily RPG-based), like the first three Mass Effect games, what about this trailer is giving you more Halo than Mass Effect?

  5. Looks great! Been a fan of the Vanguard class since ME2 and adding the little hover pack in conjunction the biotic charge looks like tons of fun. It also looks like they’ve acheived an even smoother gameplay than ME2/3. ME1 could be a quite clunky, ME2/3 fixed a lot of it… but there were still some odd movements and animations that seemed to slow down the action.

    I’ll echo Nmco8, that I hope the story is as good as this gameplay looks!

  6. Really light on a lot of detail about the story, but the gameplay certainly looks exciting. Looks to be heavily influenced by ME3’s surprisingly great multiplayer mode. Fingers crossed that BioWare polishes up those facial animations though.
