Mass Effect: Andromeda isn’t the start of a new trilogy for BioWare’s popular RPG series. This is according to game director Mac Walters, who recently spoke to Game Informer about Andromeda’s story and how it’s not really related to the other three games in the series. Though some Mass Effect: Andromeda fans could’ve taken it as it won’t be the last game in the series – but according to Walters that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Walter posted on Twitter, "To be clear: Just because Andromeda isn't start of a trilogy, doesn't mean we haven't been planning for future adventures. Just not 3 acts." Some people thought Andromeda would be the last Mass Effect game, but Walters said, "Not by a long shot. There are so many stories left to tell..."
In Mass Effect: Andromeda, the main character, Ryder, starts the game off as a soldier, with the story following a hero’s journey. In the first Mass Effect game, Shepard was known in the game’s universe.
BioWare released a new cinematic trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda on Monday.
The narrator, Ryder’s father, says in the video, “We slept for hundreds of years, dreaming of a new home. But when we finally awake, our dreams of peace were shattered.”
The trailer released on Monday was a teaser video from Nov.1, which showed off some new characters and featured main character Ryder’s father.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released before the end of March 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
