Mass Effect’s annual N7 Day brought us a cinematic trailer and heaps of new information on Mass Effect: Andromeda. Here is a roundup of the Mass Effect: Andromeda details that have been recently revealed:
In Mass Effect: Andromeda, players will play as two possible protagonists. You can choose between Scott or Sarah Ryder, a pair of twins. For further details on the characters and their voice actors, click here. The new enemy race has also been revealed as the Khet, or Kett.
Bioware have made several changes to Andromeda in comparison to previous Mass Effect games. Thanks to NeoGAF User shinobi602 and to GameInformer, we now know a lot more about Mass Effect: Andromeda’s combat. The old class system is gone, replaced with a larger skill tree offering more options for specialisation. Specialising in a particular area unlocks bonuses for a particular play style. Players will also be able to rework their setup at particular stages in the game, allowing you to try out numerous play styles.
Bioware have implemented a more dynamic cover system in Andromeda, similar to that in The Last of Us.
Players will also be able to wield melee items such as swords and hammers, and the game also includes a jetpack ability, which players can use to quick dash and hover above ground to target enemies behind cover.
Planet exploration is a major part of Mass Effect: Andromeda and players will be able to explore planets in their Mako vehicle, now named the Nomad. The Nomad won’t have any weapons, but it is customizable in terms of appearance and speed, and is fast and agile.
Bioware have revealed that Mass Effect: Andromeda will have two Collector’s editions.
The $199 Collector’s Edition of the game includes a remote-control version of the Nomad (see picture below).
The remote-controlled version include six-wheel drive, a built-in camera and LEDs. You can control your Nomad using an app. Amazon.com has added a listing for the special edition which is now available to pre-order.
If you are not that keen on the remote control version, the other collector’s edition includes a die-cast 1:18 scale Nomad model for around $100. It has opening doors that reveal a detailed interior and illuminated control panel.
Both versions come with a special SteelBook case by default, though not an actual copy of the game.
Aside from the collector’s editions, there is also a Mass Effect: Andromeda Deluxe Edition, which will include the following extras
