Mass Effect Andromeda is expected at some point next year, and while we know it’s taking place in a new universe, there’s not been much else to go on.
A survey sent out by EA may shed some light on their plans for Mass Effect Andromeda as it hints at some plot lines. The question asks how players would feel about the game as described below.
“Mass Effect Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way, where players will lead the fight for a new home in hostile territory – where WE are the aliens – opposed by a deadly indigenous race bent on stopping us.
“Experience the freedom to traverse and explore a planet-dense but seamless open-world galaxy, rich with discovery. Play as the leader of a squad of military-trained explorers in an intense third-person shooter, with deep progression and customisation systems.
“This is the story of humanity’s next chapter, and player choices throughout the game will ultimately determine our survival in the Andromeda Galaxy.”
These surveys are designed to be as vague as possible but they do provide the odd nugget of information. It’s a good way for EA to figure out if the basic premise is appealing and how they should approach selling this to gamers.
