Mass Effect Andromeda – Everything You Need to Know

March 18, 2017Written by Michael Briers


Five long years after the launch and subsequent fallout from Mass Effect 3 — for many, that original ending still leaves a sour taste in the mouth — BioWare is gearing up for the launch of Mass Effect Andromeda, the latest (and greatest?) installment in the spacefaring series that heralds new planets, new vehicles, and a whole new cast of characters.

It is, without question, one of 2017’s pixelated heavy-hitters — the kind of video game launch that ostensibly forces the entire industry to stand up and take notice. March 21st is the official due date, though EA Access and Origin members will be able to enjoy a 1o-hour spell in Mass Effect Andromeda from March 16th. The review embargo, meanwhile, lifts on Monday, March 20 at 12 am PT/3 am ET, when PSLS’ resident Mass Effect expert Keri Honea will turn in her verdict of BioWare’s galaxy far, far away. But the status of our review is but a small tidbit to feature in the gallery below, wherein you’ll find a wealth of info for Andromeda just in time for release.

So, you’re ready to blast off into the dark recesses of space? Not so fast, Pathfinder! In anticipation of its North American launch on March 21, we’ve scoured the four corners of the internet — and the PSLS archives — to compile all the necessary information you could ever need pertaining to Mass Effect Andromeda.

Mass Effect Andromeda touches down for PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 21 and March 23 across North America and Europe, respectively. A new galaxy awaits, but will you be enlisting for the Andromeda Initiative in a few days’ time? Let us know.
