If you’re one of those many people that are familiar with BioWare and its extremely popular Mass Effect series, then you likely remember 2012, when Mass Effect 3 came out and, following the discovery of the ending, became synonymous with “disappointing ending” after many found it wholly unsatisfying. However, Bioware devs aren’t letting that get to them.
Mass Effect: Andromeda, being the start of a whole new adventure for Mass Effect, will be a chance for BioWare to leave the Mass Effect 3 stigma behind. Given a new setting, new squadmates, and even a whole new galaxy, Mass Effect Androemda has a lot of promise behind it that, with BioWare’s track record, hopefully won’t go to waste.
Considering everything that the Bioware devs have revealed through various conventions and dev diaries, Mass Effect Andromeda seems better than ever and has a lot of potential behind it.
If anything, the Bioware devs have actually said that players will be surprised with everything that’s going to be in Mass Effect: Andromeda. Considering that the new galaxy is completely separate from the Milky Way, it’s likely that we’ll see a completely different culture, a different sort of technology, and most likely no mass relays (unless the Reapers got to Andromeda too, which I doubt).
Even though what we saw in the Playstation Meeting last month didn’t show us much (simply showing us the lighting and giving us a good look at the Dragon Age: Inquisition-style running around in non-combat situations), it still brought us a pretty interesting-looking sort of architecture that personally made me curious about what all we’ll be encountering in the game.
Mass Effect Andromeda is supposed to be coming out sometime in March of next year, but if everything that the Bioware devs are saying is true, the final product will be well worth the wait.
