As the launch of Mass Effect Andromeda is nearing, Bioware has been revealing new details about the game. This time Bioware has revealed a new feature for Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer called “Missions”.
Mass Effect Andromeda producer Fernando Melo revealed the Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer feature and explained it with the help of Lead Designer Ian Frazier.
According to the devs, “Missions” will grant players “Pathfinder Rewards” which are bonuses that are acquired by completing them. These rewards can be applied to both the singleplayer and multiplayer components of Mass Effect Andromeda.
Players can either complete them themselves or send AI strike team in single player to complete them. However, in the case of AI Strike Team players will only get singleplayer rewards.
The devs also explained the Weapon Weak Point Bonus which is basically the headshot bonus from Mass Effect 3, but not all enemies have heads.
Furthermore, players will also earn blueprints as they level up while some can only be acquired by spending research data (RD) acquired via scanning.
Also, Bioware has canceled the multiplayer technical test for Mass Effect Andromeda. Bioware did not reveal the reason behind canceling it but they will let the attendees of PAX East try out the multiplayer at the event.
While we will have live multiplayer at PAX East, there will no longer be a multiplayer tech test for players at home. Thank you to everyone who signed up. We look forward to seeing you in Andromeda.
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.
