Mass Effect: Andromeda deals with galactic colonisation in a seamless open world

“We are the aliens” in Mass Effect: Andromeda, according to a recent marketing survey spotted by NeoGAF.

The survey contains a bunch of juicy information on Andromeda’s narrative, detailed in a short description below:

“Mass Effect: Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way, where players will lead the fight for a new home in hostile territory – where WE are the aliens – opposed by a deadly indigenous race bent on stopping us.”

“Experience the freedom to traverse and explore a planet-dense but seamless open-world galaxy, rich with discovery. Play as the leader of a squad of military-trained explorers in an intense third-person shooter, with deep progression and customization systems.”

“This is the story of humanity’s next chapter, and player choices throughout the game will ultimately determine our survival in the Andromeda Galaxy.”

Electronic Arts also released a small synopsis on the “possible future of Mass Effect,” hinting at the struggle to come in future games.

“There is a major battle brewing, and it awaits you. It’s unfolding across a galaxy of planets, with creatures and species entirely unknown. Draw your weapon, because the fighter is bigger than you thought. It’s not just for your own life, it’s for all of humanity – the ultimate battle for a place we can all call home.”

Mass Effect: Andromeda was first announced at E3 2014, set to launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2017.
