'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Update: Developer Confirms The Game Will Be Released In March
Finally, developer BioWare has announced the release date of its latest spacefaring RPG following speculations on its release window. The ever hot-discussed title "Mass Effect: Andromeda" is coming to Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 this spring.
In a blog post on Jan. 4, BioWare executive Aaryn Flynn has confirmed that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will debut on March 21 in North America and on March 23 in Europe. "We appreciate your patience (and in fact, even your lack of patience in some instances) as we've been focused on completing the game," he said.
He also added that publisher Electronic Art's Frostbite engine is used in Andromeda, which is expected to render an incredible graphical jump compared to its forerunner "Mass Effect 3." With putting the Frostbite engine into operation alongside new stories, planets, species, characters, gameplay systems and more has definitely taken a lot of time as to guarantee the best possible Andromeda experience.
According to GameSpot, BioWare developers played a "Mass Effect: Andromeda" version called the ‘holiday build' throughout their holiday R&Rs. Forbes reports that the March release date for Andromeda is a good month for the game as it will share the same launch month with Nintendo Switch including some major releases such as "Nier: Automata" and "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands."
The game allows you to play the role of all new characters in an all new galaxy, which is far from the events and proceedings of the original trilogy. Flynn also added that they are thrilled with delivering a brand new Andromeda experience with deeper, richer and ready for exploration for the first time in five long years.
"Mass Effect: Andromeda" is the first game in the series to bring it to an open world environment. It's an action RPG where you take control of either Scott Ryder or Sara from a third-person perspective. Check out the video trailer below.
