Sticking with the theme of this years E3, yet another Unicorn has been confirmed as real.
Mass Effect: Andromeda was announced at the EA conference, while the trailer shown left me giddy and extremely excited to jump back into the world of Mass Effect but theres slim to no information on show apart from a revamped looking land rover and the subtle hint that the main character will in fact be you.
Aaryn Flynn, Studio General Manager at BioWare Canada and Yanick Roy, Studio Director at BioWare Montreal, had this to say about the game, confirming that you play as a human and the events will be set long after those of the original trilogy.
"While we aren't ready to go into too many details just yet, as you saw in the trailer and can tell by the name, this game is very much a new adventure, taking place far away from and long after the events of the original trilogy. You will play a human, male or female, though that's actually not the character you saw in the trailer (more on that later). You'll be exploring an all-new galaxy, Andromeda, and piloting the new and improved Mako you saw. And through it all, you will have a new team of adventurers to work with, learn from, fight alongside of, and fall in love with."
"We built this trailer in Frostbite, our game engine, and it represents our visual target for the final game. We are thrilled by what we've already been able to achieve in bringing Mass Effect to Frostbite and by putting our entire focus on PC and current gen consoles. With the time remaining in development, we're excited about the possibility to push things even more."
Mass Effect: Andromeda is due out "holiday 2016". Check out the trailer below for a glimpse of it's world in action.
