Mass Effect games have always been about action, exploration and relations and Bioware is taking each of them to another level with the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda. Now, Bioware has revealed that some Mass Effect Andromeda planets are as big as Dragon Age Inquisition.
Speaking with Gamespot, producer Fabrice Condominas revealed that some Mass Effect Andromeda planets are as big as Dragon Age Inquisition as a whole.
If you take some of the story planets–which are the biggest we have–they’re the size of Dragon Age: Inquisition as a whole in terms of footprint. Keep in mind though that the context is different, because you’re moving way faster [driving] the Nomad, but we still have to build all that content.
If the planet is as big as they claim it would require a ton of content to keep players hooked in. While Bioware has put in content to keep players engaged, but according to Bioware, they went for quality over quantity for their content.
We went for quality over quantity for sure. We play it and say ‘Okay, on that specific planet I get bored after one minute and thirty seconds, or whatever it is. Let’s place content.
He added that the team did not just put content but they put content that would have an impact on the game’s narrative or add something to the game’s lore.
Mass Effect Andromeda is an action-adventure RPG in development at Bioware and is scheduled to launch on March 21, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
