What do we know about the game? Not much yet. Here’s the brief description BioWare’s given:

Mass Effect: Andromeda Works Way Better As A Management Sim

<i>Mass Effect: Andromeda</i> Works Way Better As A Management Sim

Mass Effect: Andromeda was met with disappointment, and, in the worst parts of the internet, harassment campaigns. The game had Mass Effect in the title but it didn’t quite feel one. But Mass Effect: Andromeda deserves to be remembered as more than just another hyped AAA game that failed to meet fan expectations and corporate sales goals.

After almost a year of trawling through the game’s...

BioWare Wants <i>Mass Effect Andromeda</i> To Recapture The First Game's Wonder

BioWare is still mostly in the we’re-not-talking-about-that-yet phase of hyping next years’ Mass Effect Andromeda, but the outlines they’re sketching show a game that’s returning to the strangeness of the 2007 original.

“If you go back to the original Mass Effect, there was that sort of awe of going to a new galaxy and meeting all these aliens for the first time—new races, new cultures, new...

There Wasn’t Much To Celebrate On This Year’s <i>Mass Effect</i> Day

November 7 marks two important milestones for Mass Effect. It falls in the same month as the first release of Bioware’s sci-fi role-playing game series, which came out on November 20, 2007, giving fans a good excuse to celebrate its anniversary. And, more importantly, it can be contracted as N7, an alphanumeric designation belonging to elite soldiers within the game, like protagonist...

Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Tired Face Lady Now Looks Slightly Less Tired

<i>Mass Effect: Andromeda’s</i> Tired Face Lady Now Looks Slightly Less Tired

After early footage of Mass Effect Andromeda went out into the wild, everyone latched onto Foster Addison, a character who snapped at the player because she felt tired. Addison became a running joke thanks to her blank stare and lack of emoting, which, paired with her dialogue, was pretty ironic. Thanks tothe newest Mass Effect patch, she’s changed for the better.

As we reported earlier in...

Well, the next Mass Effect sure looks sick.

Goodbye Sweet Nomad

Goodbye Sweet Nomad

Things get weird on Mass Effect: Andromeda’s desert world of Eos when you start pushing the Nomad over 160 kilometers per hour. As several players have reported on Reddit, the glitch happens while zooming around the planet’s surface at high speeds.

The DeLorean-like teleportation doesn’t send the Nomad into the past or future, however.

Instead, it shoots the space buggy inexplicably to the...

The Mass Effect series has traditionally allowed you to customize your main character. Some players take this as an opportunity to create inhuman abominations. Mass Effect: Andromeda has been no different.

The new character creator has a lot of fun, futuristic makeup and tattoo options. But it’s very easy to let things get out of hand.

As you may have noticed, players are given a lot of...
