Mass Effect Loyalty Missions Will Return in Mass Effect: Andromeda

Largest Bioware game ever

One of the more notable (and important) mechanics of gameplay in Mass Effect 2 was loyalty missions, glimpses into the backstories of your squadmates that help them to deal with personal demons. Far from being sidequests, these Mass Effect loyalty missions would help to determine if your squadmates would survive the game’s ending suicide mission or not.

However, now these personal quests are returning in Mass Effect: Andromeda. While not part of the critical path for the story like the Mass Effect 2 loyalty missions were, they will still allow you to grow closer to your squadmates and even uncover what might be an unknown mystery about the player’s own family.

The Mass Effect loyalty missions for Andromeda are also different from Mass Effect 2 in that you won’t be penalized for not doing them; their only reason is to deepen your relationship with the squadmates that you’ll have in the game, and learn more about their pasts. Considering how well BioWare does character writing, they’ll at least be a fun diversion, and may even get our squadmates new abilities or something along those lines.

Hopefully Mass Effect loyalty missions will be only one of the great many things that we’ll be able to do in Mass Effect: Andromeda, whether it’s meeting new alien species, going to new worlds, exploring the planets of the Andromeda galaxy, or even just lounging around on your ship, interacting with your squadmates and checking out all of your new toys.

Mass Effect: Andromeda will be coming out sometime in the spring of next year, so we don’t have very much longer to wait until the game releases and we can once again return to the Mass Effect universe, even if it’s not the galaxy we know. The game will be available on the Xbox One, the Playstation 4 and PC platforms.
