A leaked survey hints at the upcoming shooter’s premise.
Bioware’s Mass Effect: Andromeda still doesn’t have a ton of information surrounding its premise with only a few leaks hinting at humanity’s struggle in a new galaxy and the Pathfinder as a new character.
However, a marketing survey has been making the rounds via NeoGAF that revealed a few interesting details about the world and overall premise. According to the survey’s slides, the game takes place in the “Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way, where players will lead the fight for a new home in history territory – where WE are the aliens – opposed by a deadly indigenous race bent on stopping us.”
The game will also include “a planet-dense but seamless open-world galaxy, rich with discovery” that players are free to explore with “deep progression and customization systems” and their decisions “will ultimately determine our survival in the Andromeda galaxy.”
The story is interesting because one slide points at this being a “possible a future version of Mass Effect” with “a major battle brewing” and “unfolding across a galaxy of planets, with creatures and species entirely unknown. Draw your weapon, because the fight is bigger than you thought. It’s not just for your own life, it’s for all of humanity – the ultimate battle for a place we can all call home.”
Take all this information with a grain of salt, of course. Mass Effect: Andromeda is slated to release by Q1 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
