This taste of Mass Effect Andromeda is going to make waiting even harder.
We got great new looks at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Hideo Kojima’s cryptic Death Stranding at The Game Awards on Thursday night, but perhaps the biggest news of the night was a lengthy look at Mass Effect Andromeda.
BioWare’s Aaron Flynn took the stage to thank fans for their patience, promising a game that will delight both Mass Effect die-hards and those new to the series. A five-minute narrated clip shows off combat, vehicle exploration, and the protagonist’s many powers.
This is the most we’ve seen of Andromeda in action, and gives a good sense of how the game will be structured. There’s a focus on the open world this time around, offering players the choice to visit large, bustling cities or trek out into vast alien landscapes. Players control one of the Ryder twins, known as the Pathfinder, a soldier and explorer looking for humanity’s new home.
We also see some of the weapons and powers that Ryder can use, including a new environment scanner.
But not everything will be unfamiliar in this new galaxy. Popular Mass Effect alien races like the Krogan and Turians appear in this footage, joining the Asari and Solarians we have seen in previous clips.
Mass Effect Andromeda is due out sometime in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
