At last year’s EA press event at E3, the team at BioWare teased Mass Effect: Andromeda, the latest installment in its popular sci-fi franchise. At the time, the game was slated for a 2016 release. However, the game’s development is still ongoing, and its release date was delayed to early 2017.
BioWare didn’t provide specifics to the delay, but it did state that more time was needed to “deliver everything the game can be and should be.” This means increasing the overall scope of where you can go in each location, which should give you more freedom to explore. Andromeda will also take players outside of our Milky Way galaxy to explore new worlds and races. To top it all off, the game will utilize DICE’s Frostbite Engine, the same foundation used for Star Wars Battlefront and the newly announced Battlefield 1.
|Name||Mass Effect: Andromeda|
|Type||RPG, Sci-Fi, Third-Person Shooter|
|Release Date||Early 2017|
However, BioWare won’t stay quiet between now and next year. E3 is coming up in a few weeks, and as usual, EA will be in the area. However, it won’t actually be on the show floor, as the company decided to hold its own event called EA Play that takes place from June 12-14.
