Bioware Teases Platinum Difficulty For Mass Effect Andromeda

Bioware intends to support Mass Effect Andromeda despite the rumors that the EA has put the Mass Effect franchise on ICE. While we might not be getting single-player DLC For Mass Effect Andromeda but, Bioware has teased a new Platinum difficulty in a new trailer.

The trailer is very brief and only teases that Mass Effect Andromeda multiplayer will be receiving a new Platinum difficulty level and also indicates that Batarians will be joining in the fight. The reason why the Platinum difficulty is a thing is that it was the highest level of challenge in Mass Effect 3 with mostly elite enemies coming at the player.

In Mass Effect Andromeda, the Platinum difficulty seems to be introduced to APEX Missions that feature special missions full of challenges and reward players with weapons, consumables and more.

Bioware is currently working on its upcoming title, Anthem, which is a new IP that the studio showcased at E3 2017. However, since the game’s reveal Bioware has clarified that Anthem has more in common with Destiny then Mass Effect franchise.

It’s in a genre we call science fantasy. Very much like Star Wars, very much like the Marvel Universe where you see a lot of amazing things happening but we don’t worry too much about why they are happening or how they’re happening; the science of it.

Mass Effect is a more a real hardcore science-fiction IP [but Anthem] is much more about just having fun in a game world that lush and exotic and really sucks you in.

Mass Effect Andromeda is an action-adventure RPG developed by Bioware for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
