‘Mass Effect’ Release Date, Characters, Armour Artwork, Story Details: Updates About ‘Andromeda’ That We Know So Far

By Alex Cruz

"Mass Effect: Andromeda," Bioware's upcoming game, doesn't really have that much information to divulge. Luckily, people who are involved in the game's development have social media accounts that could update fans with important information.

Aaryn Flynn, "Mass Effect" Manager, said that it has been years since they decided to create another "Mass Effect" game. The whole team at BioWare is excited that they are now able to talk about "Mass Effect: Andromeda."

Just in case you might have missed some updates, here's what we know so far.


Mac Walters, creative director of "Mass Effect: Andromeda" said that this will showcase a whole new set of characters and adventure.

Chris Wynn, "Mass Effect" Senior Development Director was asked on Twitter, Thursday, if he can share the main character's last name. He refused, but confirmed that indeed, the main lead has a surname.

Wynn also talked about working with aliens, which took more work than he thought they would, Gaming Bolt reported.

The New Armour

Flyn took to Twitter and shared a piece of snap flaunting this beautiful red, white and black armour.


Not much of the story detail was revealed, but it has been established that the settings would take place long after the events of the original "Mass Effect" trilogy, according to IGN. There will be new worlds to explore and more intense action.

Andromeda is the new galaxy that players will be exploring. Players will be also piloting the new and improved Mako.

Release Date

It was believed before that "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will be released in 2020. However, Cross Map recently found out that it will be released in the late 2016.

"Mass Effect: Andromenda" will be released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
