New "Mass Effect: Andromeda" Trailer


  • Banned

    I didn't see any red flags in the trailer.

    But that doesn't mean I'm not worried. Bioware under the guidance of EA is troubling. We've seen their games drop in overall quality and that's not just my opinion, it's a fact.



  • My red flag is that they probably will cut out essential content again to sell it as overpriced DLC, like Leviathan.



  • There a multiplayer beta sign up right now.



  • I'm a bit let down that there's no gameplay in this trailer.



  • My most anticipated game of 2017

    to get delayed.



  • Very excited! Some extra details from neogaf http://neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1309671 [contains SPOILERS... sorta. Don't go if you're gonna go full blackout]

    Squadmates
    -Peebee (nickname): Asari squadmate shown in previous footage. Went off on her own after arriving on the Nexus and described as having a "bubbly personality". She's smart and not concerned with social norms and "niceties".

    Liara fans, you guys ready for Sera 2.0?



  • @TokyoSlim There will be at the game awards they said.



  • @CGamor7 Logically one could assume that they'll show gameplay eventually. Unless the game is cancelled.
    That doesn't mean not showing it today is not disappointing.



  • I loved it!
    At this point though I'll take anything

    Gotta say I wish they hadn't told me Spring 2017, now I'm expecting it so I'll be really disappointed when the likely delay comes. Granted with P5 and For Honor in February I could use a delay to give me time to finish those.



  • Honestly I'm still not convinced. Probably won't be until it comes out, but I still really want it to be good.

    Exactly, EA isn't above suspicion in their QA department these days. If it truly comes out as soon as they say, I'd be concerned about it's quality.....or lack of content.

    But we'll see. It's just nothing I'm gonna rush out and pre-order this time, same with FFXV. I want to see how the initial impressions look this time around before I bite, so far it's been very.......No Man's Sky-ish in the sense of making people speculate all kinds of things without really confirming or denying anything yet.

    Obviously the gameplay thing in december SHOULD reveal something I'd hope, since other than PSX when else are they going to show it off before it's expected launch? If they aim for spring it'll be out before E3.

    That's a pretty safe decision with any game nowadays. Doesn't really hurt any of us to wait until there's more info on a game before we buy it.

    I'm ready for bleach. I hope there are some good characters that at least come somewhat close to my waifu Tali and my bro Garrus, Team JTG forever.

    If the game becomes anything close to ME2 or the ME3 DLCs I am happy. At the same time it feels a little like "Okey now the ME series have sold very well, lets get some cash!". To me for this game to feel "genuine" I would want to see a RPG game that still differs a lot from the original trilogy. Still lots of story and so on, but perhaps more about exploring and building relations than pewpew.

    Nether the less I am hyped for this to 300% and I hope to get a cool adventure out of it! :D



  • I'm interested in seeing what BioWare do with this fresh start approach and purposefully removing the characters and story away from original games in terms of time and space. (How very sci-fi!) I do worry that the big bad in this will be the typical "MWHAHAHA we are the bad guys behind the last bad guys you fought!" rather than an entirely new threat. It's gonna be interesting! Looking forward to seeing proper gameplay soon.



  • @Lotias I completely agree with you about taking anything we can get, but I slightly differ about the launch window. If they had said a definitive date, I would be irritated, because I know that's most likely NOT the date they will keep. Being a window, they leave themselves wiggle room while simulataneously not having to lie to fans.

    @ZyloWolfBane They already have confirmed the reveal to be at the Game Awards, which is on Thursday, December 1.



  • It might be too much to ask for, but I would really be excited to discover an entire cast of new species (sentient or not) like how the Mass Effect 1 felt. I would hate find that Andromeda only inhabits one overarching min bad guy species (kind of like how the protheans were).



  • @frasafrase If there aren't at LEAST 5 new species I'll be a little disappointed. This is a whole new galaxy it's unbelievable if it were all the same. I know we'll have a few returning, obviously, but man I want some new cool aliens. Not sure if tech wise it would be possible, but it'd be amazing if some of the new species were not even remotely human like and could be squad mates. It's my dream.
