The power of Frostbite.
Bioware wants the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda to look incredible- and it is something that they hope to have achieved in large part thanks to them leveraging the power of the Frostbite engine. In a piece posted on Game Informer, Bioware revealed that their graphics targets for the upcoming space RPG were the CGI trailers for the original three games.
Of course, the trailers being the targets doesn’t mean that the targets will be met- but it shows us what the developer is aspiring for, and aspiring for a higher level will lead them to land at a higher level even if they fail than if they were simply contenting themselves with settling for a lower level to begin with (that’s good life advice in general, folks). My only hope now is that they do meet the targets they have set for the game, and deliver a graphical stunner next year.
Mass Effect Andromeda is due out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2017.
