Mass Effect fans, here is something for you today. An EA survey may have revealed the story behind the new Mass Effect title, Mass Effect: Andromeda. The reason we’re marking this as a rumour is because the storyline could change based on the feedback from survey-takers. Therefore, take everything you are about to read with a grain of salt.
According to the survey, Mass Effect: Andromeda will take place in the Andromeda galaxy:
“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.”
In Mass Effect: Andromeda, players will experience the freedom to traverse and explore a planet-dense but seamless open-world galaxy, rich with discovery.
Naturally, this new Mass Effect will be similar to all previous parts of the series. Players will take the role of the leader of a squad of military-trained explorers in a third-person shooter, with deep progression and customization systems.
Below you can find some screenshots from the survey (thanks NeoGAF).
