BioWare has stated on multiple occasions that Mass Effect Andromeda is not a continuation of Mass Effect 3 and, as such, does not feature Commander Shepard. In fact, it has no returning characters from the Mass Effect Trilogy and uses an entirely new graphics engine.
Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Senior Development Director Chris Wynn stated on twitter that adding returning characters won’t make sense from a story standpoint, especially when considering that it is set in the Andromeda Galaxy, while the first three games took place in the Milky Way Galaxy.
In case you didn’t know, a whopping 2.5 million light years separate the two galaxies…
We can’t also forget that Commander Shepard’s journey ended in the third game, so an all-new lead character and cast of supporting characters are needed, each with a fresh and unique background.
Considering that Mass Effect Andromeda is an Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC game, fans of the series want nothing less than a notable improvement in graphics over Mass Effect 3, and BioWare has responded by building it on an all-new game engine. This is a big reason why it’s taking longer to make the game compared to its predecessors.
Considering all the changes the sci-fi action-adventure game will introduce, let us know what you want to see in Mass Effect Andromeda in the comments below, and stay tuned to GameTribute for more news and videos on BioWare’s upcoming masterpiece.
New N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda Trailer is Intense, See it
The new N7 Day Mass Effect Andromeda trailer that fans have been impatiently waiting for is finally here, and it’s intense.
We get to see more scripted and in-game footage of the game world, as well as ‘brother’ Ryder, his alien crew and what appears to be the main villain in action. It might have also confirmed the existence of Salarians in Andromeda.
The Andromeda Initiative recruitment page has been updated to coincide with the trailer’s release. It shows the user’s login details with the year 2184… the year just before the events of Mass Effect 2.
The Andromeda Initiative is scheduled to launch in 2185, the year Commander Shepherd returns from the dead (the beginning of Mass Effect 2). Three Ark ships, each containing three different species in cryo stasis, will leave the Milkyway for the new galaxy, with plans to wake up the occupants 600 years later.
Judging by the trailer, things don’t go according to plan.
Mass Effect Andromeda launches for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC in Spring 2017. Are you excited for the new adventure?
Microsoft to Challenge PS VR With $299 Virtual Reality Headsets
Microsoft has teamed up with several hardware makers to develop virtual reality headsets that are even more affordable than the PlayStation VR.
Laptop makers Acer, ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, and Hewlett Packard (HP) are among the companies Microsoft is working with. Their VR headsets are expected to release in spring 2017 and will start at $299 in the United States.
Despite their low price, the units will be the “first and only” headsets with “inside out six degrees of freedom sensors,” which is to say they won’t require extra accessory such as a camera sensor.
Microsoft says they will the the “first VR headsets capable of mixed reality,” and each one will work the Windows 10 Creators Update. Terry Meyers, the tech giant’s EVP of the Windows and Devices Group, specifically stated:
“Unlike every other virtual reality headset in the market today, there will be zero need for a separate room and complicated setup.
While the less immersive VR accessories today cost more than $500, or require a new expensive device, these accessories will start at just $299 and work with affordable laptops and PCs.”
Additional details on the headsets will be released closer to their release in the spring. Make sure to stay tuned to GameTribute for future developments.
