Somehow lost on me over the past few weeks is that one of my favorite series (Mass Effect) will return in a new story set hundreds of years after Shepard and the Normandy gang roamed the galaxies. I’ll admit it feels strange going back into this series without the familiar faces I’ve grown accustomed to over 3 games. This new cast of characters seems like a likable bunch lead by a new hero, Ryder. You choose between siblings, male or female, and the child of Alec Ryder, an N7 soldier aboard the Tempest. You will play the role of Pathfinder on a human explorative mission to colonize worlds.
Bioware so graciously dropped a story trailer as well as a “get to know the crew” introduction.
Should you be looking for something Mass Effecty to keep you satiated during the wake I’d suggest checking out the Andromeda Initiative found on the official site.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will be docking on Earth March 21st, 2017 on PC, XB1, and PS4.
