Mass Effect Andromeda Multiplayer Will Get Free Post-Launch Content In The Form of Maps And Characters
Mass Effect Andromeda is barely two weeks away and there is still very little information regarding the game’s multiplayer. However, Aaryn Flynn has finally revealed some exciting new Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer information.
Answering a question on Twitter, Bioware’s general manager Aaryn Flynn revealed that Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer will be getting free post launch updates.
While Aaryn didn’t exactly outright say that all the post launch content will be free, answering the question about maps he did say that Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer is “going to be just like ME3”.
Those who did play the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer will remember that all the maps and characters introduced with each DLC were free for everyone although players could spend extra if they wished on armor and weapons.
How exactly the recently announced loot box system will fit into this free DLC plan remains to be seen although it is possible players will be able to purchase loot boxes with real money.
Without any proper marketing as is custom of most EA games with playable demos and other appearances at events like E3 and Gamescom, Twitter accounts of Bioware employees have been the best source of information for the fans.
Bioware itself seems to be wholeheartedly embracing this new mode of communication with fans and people like Aaryn constantly talk about game’s numerous features such as romance options and the Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer through a series of tweets.
A tech test for the game was planned for March but has now been cancelled. The multiplayer of the game will instead be available to try out at PAX East.
Mass Effect Andromeda is set to release on 21st March for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The review embargo for the game will end on 20th March although EA/Origin Access subscribers will be able to play the game for 10 hours starting on 16th.
