Mass Effect Andromeda Weapons Get the Spotlight in Latest Video, Game Has Gone Gold

[embedded content] While we just got a new Mass Effect Andromeda video yesterday, we have yet another one today and I’m not complaining! For this one, BioWare gives us an overview of the Mass Effect Andromeda weapons players will be able to wield at launch. First off, all classes can now equip any kind of gun type, so that alone is a major step up compared to past Mass Effect titles. In Andromeda, there are four kinds of guns: pistols, shotguns, assault rifles and sniper rifles. As for melee weapons, we see in the video that there’s three kinds: the sword  Asari sword), a Krogan hammer and what looks like an omni blade that seems to be similar to the one Commander Shepard used in the trilogy. Weapons aren’t the only things that can decimate enemies, of course. There are different kind of abilities available to cater to every play style. Finally, the video gives us a quick look at Andromeda’s mobility system that’s a big departure from the old games in the franchise. This time, players will be able to hover, dash to the side and evade. Additionally, the official BioWare Twitter account has tweeted that Mass Effect Andromeda…

Some Mass Effect Andromeda Planets Are Bigger Than Dragon Age Inquisition

The embargo on Mass Effect Andromeda is up, which means that dozens of previews and interviews went up today (including one on this very site). That means there is a ton of new details popping up about BioWare’s upcoming action role-playing game, and one of the most interesting tidbits we’ve seen was in regard to just how big the latest Mass Effect is. Let’s just say that the developer is definitely putting the mass in Mass Effect. Here’s what BioWare producer Fabrice Condominas had to say about the game’s size and depth when talking to Gamereactor UK: Oh, it’s bigger than any of the three [games in the original trilogy]. In terms of the footprint, for example, it’s gigantic. One planet can be the size of Dragon Age: Inquisition as a whole. Not all of them, but some of them. But it gives you an idea of scale. But also in terms of, for example, the progression system, it’s probably the deepest we ever made. So even in terms of mechanically, the crafting system is probably the one we pushed further than any in the three. So it’s definitely bigger. There are a lot of other interesting details in the full Mass READ FULL STORY…

Mass Effect Andromeda Preview – New Beginnings (PS4)

[embedded content] While we know a few details about Mass Effect Andromeda based on the info that’s been trickling out as we near the game’s March 21 North American release date, that still pales in comparison to actually seeing the sci-fi RPG in the flesh, and even actually getting to play the latest BioWare saga. Thankfully, EA invited us earlier this month to the publisher’s Redwood studios to get a sneak peek, and get our grubby mitts on Mass Effect Andromeda. While we do document what we’ve seen and played, we aren’t allowed to talk about character romances, codex entries and how the story progress. This is understandable given how much the Mass Effect games rely on their stories, and Andromeda is no different. It Begins… The Mass Effect series has seen some great games over the course of its lifetime, with players guiding Commander Shepard through the Mass Effect universe, completing a trilogy of titles that had the Commander creating tricky alliances and taking down enemies to save our planet. All of the previous titles were tied together, creating one long story arch. The latest title in the series, Mass Effect Andromeda, breaks away from Commander Shepard and launches us…

If you just want to see some gameplay, skip ahead to 3:40. “Welcome to the Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay series,” BioWare says. “In this video, learn all about combat. Battle with weaponry from an alien galaxy, outmaneuver enemies with your jump-jet, and unlock the power of Biotics. In Mass Effect Andromeda, you are on a mission to find a new home for humanity.
