Points can currently be spent on multiplayer packs that include new cosmetic items. These can also be obtained through normal gameplay if you’re committed to the regular grind. Luckily, those willing to spend a little extra won’t have any real advantage over other players.

Games editor Brett Phipps scored Mass Effect Andromeda 7/10 in his review. Here’s what he thought:

“There’s an awful lot to like about Mass Effect Andromeda, it has an intriguing and far-reaching story told across an incredibly vast and detailed galaxy. The new tone wheel makes each interaction feel meaningful without a pre-determined conclusion, making the actual journey more interesting. Riding around in the Nomad is also excellent fun and exploration feels great.”
