BioWare has shared new Mass Effect Andromeda combat and story details.
Ahead of the Mass Effect Andromeda release date in late 2016, BioWare has shed some light on the game’s storyline and the changes to combat.
On the subject of combat, senior development director Chris Wynn has gone on Twitter to inform fans it will feel similar to Mass Effect 3.
Wynn also hinted that the game wouldn’t feature competitive multi-player, instead suggesting its multi-player portion would remain strictly co-op.

As for the story, BioWare has previously said that the game won’t be centred around Commander Shepard – our hero from the original trilogy.
Wynn has gone further, suggesting that Andromeda won’t feature even familiar faces from the previous Mass Effect games.
He said it was hard to say whether even minor characters would appear in Andromeda. The game is currently in active development, and according to Wynn, “given that we haven’t’ added every single character to the Andromeda build yet, we can’t really answer this one yet.”
He was keen to stress that the game would continue to feel familiar to fans of the series.
“There are plenty of non-character connections,” he said. “Races, stuff like the Mako. Fans will feel at home.”
For those excited about seeing fresh gameplay footage, however, it seems that we might be in for a wait.
