Speaking with Official Xbox Magazine(via GamesRadar), producer Michael Gamble said that Mass Effect Andromeda is not an open-world game but an exploration based game.

“I definitely wouldn’t call Andromeda an open-world game. We like to use the term ‘exploration-based game.’ You still have the concept of tight story deliverance and all the great things you come to expect with Mass Effect.

The layer on top of that is a layer of exploration,” Gamble said. “Sometimes that happens in open spaces, but not always. You can cruise around some of these planets in the Nomad, but it’s not the traditional sandbox-type game.

Recently, game’s creative director revealed that stakes are very high in Mass Effect Andromeda, as this time around the fate of humanity rests on player’s actions.

So we want to have high stakes, and there are high stakes in the sense that if you don’t succeed in your role, that’s it for humanity, and potentially every other species that came from the Milky Way in Andromeda. But we also don’t have to go right to raising the stakes to – you know, two hours in “hey, you’ve got this best friend and this best friend, which one do you want to die and which one do you want to survive?

Mass Effect Andromeda is an action adventure game developed by Bioware and is scheduled to launch on March 21, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStaiton 4.
