Mass Effect Andromeda

While we haven’t gotten to see much when it comes to the development of Mass Effect: Andromeda we have been getting a few details thanks to the Twitter accounts of various people working on the project. Chris Wynn has actually been pretty forthcoming about the fact that progress is definitely being made by Bioware. Last week he talked about the fact that aliens are taking more work than he first thought they would, this week he wasn’t quite as forthcoming.

Wynn was asked on Twitter if he would be able to tell anyone what the last name of the main character is. While he wasn’t willing to do that just yet, he did answer that the character does indeed have a last name. Meanwhile, the man who has been doing the most talking about the so called “secret IP” continued to do just enough talking to get us excited to see what actually happens. Jay Watamaniuk took to Twitter again to talk about the fact that he found a great quote for a character he is thinking about creating and taped it to his desk. While this isn’t a ton of info it does show that the secret IP is coming.

Finally, Aaryn Flynn showed off an illustration of some Mass Effect: Andromeda armor that was certainly pretty. If there’s one thing that can be said for the team working on Andromeda, it’s that they know how to get fans of the series fired up without showing off the game much at all. Sooner or later, we’ll even get to see footage of Mass Effect: Andromeda before it launches during the Holiday season of next year.

    I don’t know why they are bothering to kill off Shepard, this is video games. Why can’t we simply press X to continue?

      Video Games are love. Video Games are life.

  • Natasha Medeiros

    I hope you can choose the species of the main protagonist, I always wanted to be a krogan. 😀

    • Matt Lam

      They already announced that the protagonist is human

    • Natasha Medeiros

      D: well my hopes have been shattered, but at the very least we’ll be able to play as a krogan in the Multiplayer, i hope.

    I’m not holding my breath. After the filler that was DA:I I am convinced Bioware has sold their soul to EA and to SJW/politically correct crowds. Rather than write meaningful stories and characters etc, they have check lists to go through to please a group of whiny hipsters who will by and large never play the game in the first place no care about it, them or gaming.
    It’s possible the game could be good…but I fear the days of good Bioware games is long gone.

    • Matt Lam

      Oh please, just because dragon age inquisition wasn’t a masterpiece doesn’t mean it wasn’t good. The game was very
      good and a great play. Dragon age seemed to be the beginning of bioware games becoming quality games again.

    • Geralt Rivia

      I disagree. The story was meh and most of the quests were MMO style fetch quests that were very boring. DA:O drew me in. The stories, the characters…I really didn’t care much for any of it in DA:I. It wasn’t as well done and really seemed like they just added filler to increase the play time. It was quantity not quality.
      You’re welcome to your opinion but DA:I was blah. Sure it wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t great either. If they actually cared more for their own world and narrative instead of trying to shoe horn in a social check list and the multiplayer, we would have gotten a better game.

    • Matt Lam

      I think they actually do care about the world and narrative. I mean the dragon age games never had a compelling storyline, but the character development and gameplay were the main draws. I think the characters were very thoughtfully developed and the gameplay was fun. The game wasn’t a great game, but a game one could really enjoy.

    • Geralt Rivia

      The I rather enjoyed the DA:O narrative, also the side quests were more thought out and engaging than DA:I.
      However I think we will have to agree to disagree, I see DA:I as a sad downward trend in Bioware games, you disagree.

  • Mageoftheyear

    Nice cinematic. Hopefully we’ll get to see gameplay soon.
