Well, it’s official Mass Effect Andromeda is getting a tad bit of a delay. Announced and revealed back in E32015 Bioware stated that they will be releasing Mass Effect Andromeda in Holiday 2016. But in an early morning Tuesday, May 10th update post on the Mass Effect blog. Aaryn Flynn, General Manager of BioWare confirmed that Mass Effect Andromeda will be releasing Early 2017 opposed to this year’s holiday season.
“As we’ve been playing the game at the studio recently, it’s showing us that we’re taking the game in the right direction. But we also know we need the right amount of time to make sure we deliver everything the game can be and should be – that’s our commitment from all of us to all of you. Because of that, Mass Effect: Andromeda will now ship in early 2017.”
No official release date yet. But the post further touch base on the new features of Mass Effect Andromeda.
- More Freedom: One of our biggest ambitions is to give players an unprecedented level of freedom for a Mass Effect experience –where you’ll go, how you’ll get there, and how you’ll play.
- New Uncharted Worlds: We’re leaving the Milky Way behind and headed to Andromeda, where we’ll meet new allies, confront new enemies, and explore fascinating new worlds.
- The Next Great Mass Effect Experience: Mass Effect: Andromeda will be the first Mass Effect game for today’s consoles and the first built on the Frostbite engine. We’re pushing the technology to deliver visuals, story, and gameplay that have never been done in franchise history.
GASP… You heard that right; Mass Effect Andromeda is playable lol that means we can hope for a gameplay demo of Mass Andromeda at EA Play event taking place next month June 12-14. Mass Andromeda releases for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and the PC(Origin) early 2017.
