The NOMAD is a six wheeled rover exploration vehicle in Mass Effect: Andromeda. It is also the main mode of transportation that Ryder uses when exploring planet surfaces.
Mass Effect is the epic space RPG from BioWare, the developers of the Dragon Age series of Role Playing Games. Set in the year 2183 CE Mass Effect takes players on a journey not just to save the world but the whole galaxy.
The next instalment of the Mass Effect series is a departure from the original trilogy, set in a brand new galaxy. You are a Pathfinder who is tasked with exploring the Andromeda Galaxy and finding a new home for humanity.
The Story for Mass Effect: Andromeda follows a brand new character by the name of Ryder and begins right after the events of Mass Effect 2 just before the Reaper invasion. Ryder begins his/her 600 year trip to the Andromeda Galaxy in cryo-sleep and wakes up as one of the first humans ever to explore the Andromeda galaxy.
