It's been a long wait for Mass Effect fans and likely an even longer one for those who avidly believed the series couldn't end on the controversy of its trilogy. Now with a release date, we're just two months away from Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Announced though a developer letter on the game's main website just minutes before the group was set to demonstrate the title's environments and gameplay at Nvidia's CES keynote yesterday, Bioware's General Manager detailed the process of locking in the March 21 release date.
The mid/late March date has been floating around for some time following publication errors like Amazon listing the official guide's release for around the same time months before. With the date finally locked in, Aaryn talks about how the title is Bioware's "most ambitious Mass Effect game to date,"
"We’re telling completely new stories, creating new characters, new planets, new species, and introducing new gameplay systems. And for the first time, we’re bringing Mass Effect to the FrostbiteT game engine, an incredible engine that’s delivering a tremendous graphical jump from the trilogy to Mass Effect: Andromeda,"
Now that Nvidia's show has come and gone, we can share a brand-new trailer from the presentation that should help ease the pain of waiting another 2 months.
