First Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay highlights a hostile search for a new home

It looks like Bioware isn’t pulling any punches with the next instalment of the Mass Effect series, Mass Effect Andromeda. With new gameplay footage shown at The Game Awards on Thursday, jammed pack with combat, driving, bickering and more.

The trailer gives a vague idea of what the general story for Andromeda will be. “It’s your job to find a new home for humanity. … Resources are scarce. Planets are hazardous, or outright uninhabitable.” However the Andromeda Galaxy is far from barren as we see new animals, robots, and Alien Species both familiar and new attempt to take on Ryder.

Mass Effect Andromeda is set for a early 2017 launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC with the game already promising to be 4K compatible with the PS4Pro.
