Bioware Attending PlayStation Meeting? Mass Effect: Andromeda Producer Drops a Hint

Update 2: Mass Effect: Andromeda Gameplay has been revealed at PlayStation Meeting.

Update: Tweet from another Bioware employee is spotted.

Original Story: PlayStation Meeting is only a few hours away and many big publishers and developers are rumored to be there. Rockstar, Naughty Dog and now we are being teased with Bioware’s presence at PlayStation Meeting.


Bioware is the developer behind Mass Effect: Andromeda. We were hoping to see more of the game at E3 but we only received bits and pieces of gameplay mixed with behind the scenes development footage.

In our predictions for PlayStation Meeting, we mentioned that Mass Effect: Andromeda gameplay will be shown. And now, if a Tweet from the game’s producer is any indication, the prediction is turning out to be correct.

Bioware is attending PlayStation Meeting, apparently.

The Tweet, combined with a recent GameInformer interview with Patrick Soderlund, is a very good indication of things to come. Patrick stated:

You’ll get [your first look at gameplay] in the not too distant future. I get people want to see gameplay and I just came back from a short vacation and I played through the first three hours of the game.

It’s very playable, and there is no alarm about, ‘Why aren’t they showing it?’ It’s strictly that the game will get the right type of exposure at the right time and that we can the right voice for it. Right now we’re focused on our big titles for [October through December], and when that’s done, we’ll shift to Mass Effect. You’ll see a lot more very shortly.

Mass Effect: Andromeda footage should show a decent chunk of gameplay, characters, the ship, and planets we’ll get to explore. The game is releasing in early 2017 so it is the right time to show it in detail.

Mass Effect: Andromeda’s story is detached from the trilogy, although there would be a subtle mention of past events. You will once again play the role of commander Shepard who is tasked to find a new world for humanity. According to EA, we will feel like a villain at times while playing Andromeda.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
