You can now play Mass Effect 2 and 3 on Xbox One

Mass Effect Andromeda is implementing a new choice system, doing away with the traditional Paragon and Renegade options that were used to shape your character in the first three games.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is now scheduled for release sometime in the first quarter of 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

As most Mass Effect: Andromeda fans are well aware, BioWare's recent celebration of the science fiction series with yesterday's N7 Day festivities contained plenty of juicy reveals, including, but not limited to the release of the game's first major cinematic trailer. You can, however, be awarded a special edition Pathfinder Grade helmet for completing the "training modules", six additional trailers that will release exclusively on the game's website in the run up to launch.

The Ryder sibling you don't choose to play will remain a part of the game and you will be able to interact with them, though they won't be a squadmate.

Mass Effect: Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way.

CFP Rankings: Texas A&M 4th behind 'Bama, Clemson, Michigan
They need Washington to keep winning and to be in that top four area when they would meet again in the Pac-12 Championship Game. But with a No. 69 strength of schedule, it seems unlikely the Huskies would get in over an 11-1 Texas A&M if they finish 12-1.


"There are several different types of characters in multiplayer, and each time you finish a match, you earn your regular XP, but you also earn prestige XP", lead designer Ian Frazier said.

If you're into trailers that show absolutely no gameplay, and provides barely any background story, then this is your ticket. Yep.

The enemy of the series is a new species named Kett - Bioware also wanted to attempt to make the player empathise with them instead of painting them as "pure evil". Much exploration is done with an improved version of Mass Effect 1's Mako vehicle - which has seen development help from the Need for Speed team. This sees a departure from the previous games in the franchise, in which the protagonist was the same fundamental character regardless of their gender.

Sure everything looks big and sci-fi and agreeably Mass Effect like but it's also a very cluttered introduction to the story with little sense of pacing or even really what's happening.
