Mass Effect Andromeda seems to be a promising game that intends to justify the long wait after the luanch On Mass Effect 3. While fans are excited for the game but there are some things that they are not happy about like Bioware recently said that they will be selling squadmates and other characters as DLC.
Well, Bioware has clarified that what exactly they meant by that. Speaking with Eurogamer, Bioware’s Mac Walters said that there are a lot of different ways to introduce new cahracters.
Yeah – I think there’s a lot of different ways we could introduce new characters like that, new squadmates, whether they are one-offs for a mission.
He further added that Mass Effect Andromeda is more of open-world experience and they can indroduce new characters through DLCs before they go for Mass Effect Andrmeda 2.
But I think Andromeda is more of a persistent experience, more of an open world than we’ve done before. Even once the critical path story, the main narrative, is done there’s still a lot to accomplish. It’s a game of exploration so if we wanted to create a space for a new follower we can do it. It’s more a question of will we do it, at this point. I wasn’t ruling it out, I think I meant, but it’s certainly possible we’ll bring in new characters before we get to a Mass Effect Andromeda 2.
I believe Bioware aims to introduce new characters with a complete singleplayer expansions that introduce them with a backstory.
Mass Effect Andromeda is an open-world action adventure RPG in development at Bioware and will launch in March 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
