Commander Shepard's story may be over, but there are many more stories to tell in the Mass Effect universe. Mass Effect Andromeda will be set in a new galaxy, with new characters, new quests and a whole load of new consequence-laden decisions to make.
The E3 trailer gave us some brief teases of things to come. The Spectres are back, that familiar N7 armour worn by the main character looks as badass as ever, now with added jet pack it seems The character themselves could have been a man or a woman, a nice nod to BioWare's continued commitment to catering to a diverse audience.
And then there's the return of what appears to be the Mako. Exploring planets in the original Mass Effect may not have been perfect, but the the sense of freedom in popping down onto a planet's surface, going adventuring and crushing a few enemy installations was undeniably awesome.
We can't wait to see what BioWare have up their sleeves for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
There's a lot of good in this game. Environments are stunning. Character relationships are fun and the combat is good. The aliens are cool and the art style is top notch. It nails the feeling of exploration and colonization. On the bad side the game is a bit buggy. Some facial animations are stiff and the pathfinding of the AI is not always the best.
