Warning: 3 Mass Effect Andromeda screens might send your hype into overdrive

3 min read

What do we know about Mass Effect: Andromeda? Not too much. We know that Shepard and co aren’t in it, and we know that it takes place in a completely different galaxy. We will still be a part of N7 and get to drive around in the Mako, but we know little to nothing else about the places we might visit, the character we’ll play as and if the game will be part of a trilogy again or something all together different. And yet, I would pre-order the game today if I could. It doesn’t help that these screens are so gorgeous and getting me even more amped.

First up, the cave image. At least, I think that’s a cave. It could also be a forest of strange trees. Either way, I’m loving the height expressed and how exotic it feels. Exploration in Mass Effect had some cool moments, but mostly it felt like planet hopping with most of the time spent in cities or outposts. Could this be how resources will be gathered in Andromeda? Let’s just hope it’s not like Dragon Age: Inquisition with all the Elfroot picking.

Why do I have a feeling that Andromeda will be stunningly gorgeous? For me, most of Mass Effect was centered around the gameplay and storytelling thanks to the intriguing characters and scenarios. However, this time around, I think I might spend a whole lot more time looking at the vistas that the game has to offer, especially if they look anything like this.

So many games have grown in scale, but we sometimes don’t even perceive it. With everything growing to a massive extent, it’s hard to gauge just how big things can be. And then you see an image like this, and it puts everything in perspective. We aren’t just a speck in the universe, we are a speck compared to the technology we could build.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is still a while away, although I’m assuming that we will see it for holiday 2016. Maybe. Unless it’s delayed into 2017 for more polish, like every other game release.

      Chris Wynn should ease up on the cocaine. Either that or go back to PR school. blew me away, ridiculously cool, pretty great, hardware is amazing. No game is that good.

      • WitWolfy

        Chris Wynn tweets are like..

        “Mass Effect is a space game in space inspired from games like KOTOR and Outcast”

        “The graphics are STUNNING!”

        “Yes, Mass Effect is a game set in space.”

        “The cover system is beast, 10/10 would bang!”

        And fans at home reading with this reaction…


  • WitWolfy

    In a year from now….

    “Xbox one 720P 30fps and PS4 900P 30fps, fans are outraged!”

    All thanks to using the crappy optimized FB engine…

    You saw it here first!

    • FB actually runs smooth as a babies bottom on Xbone from what I have seen. I would be more concerned for any multiplayer glitches. Also seriously??!! who plays ME on console??!! 😛

      • lolmaster

        i am a pc gamer myself..i hate consoles becouse they are taking down game industry…but you need to know first mass effect come to consoles and ported to pc…,ts not originally a pc game at all..

        • I did know that but what you need to know is that the game was reviewed as infinitely better on pc when it was released due to the sweeping ui changes and better graphics/control.

          So my point is technically still valid.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    That’s some cool concept art, wonder if the game will look like that. 😛

    Only problem is I don’t think I will be able to go back to playing space games where there are walls up stopping you from exploring given all the hours I spent playing Elite Dangerous and being able to travel anywhere and Elite Horizons being able to drive around a whole airless planets without barriers. This probably going to be worse after I play No Man’s Sky.

  • CodeDisQus

    Seriously hope Andromeda pushes the space exploration part of the ME Universe. If they can make those concept art pics come to life……I’m gonna be taking a crap ton of screenshots
