The upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda will not be featuring the cross-play feature, according to Fernando Melo, producer at BioWare. In a recent Twitter discussion about cross-play between Xbox One and PC, Fernando Melo answered, saying that cross-play is not in current plans, and multiplayer is peer to peer, just like Mass Effect 3.

Maybe we can expect that this will change in the future, but that is unlikely. The official release day is getting really close, and any new information about this franchise is a real treat. Another great thing is that the PC version of the game will have an uncapped frame rate. All PC owners can use the full potential of their components, making the game run much more smoothly than the console counterparts.
Mass Effect Andromeda takes place around 600 years after the events of the first three Mass Effect games. You will be playing as Sara or Scott Ryder, depending on the gender you choose. They are known as Pathfinders, operatives tasked with discovering new planets for humans to colonize and explore. In previous Mass Effect games, we had the chance to fly in the famous ship called Normandy, but in Andromeda, it is called Tempest.
The game is developed by BioWare, and we can expect some amazing story-telling elements, as well as some memorable characters, just like in previous Mass Effect games. Let’s just hope that the ending will be much better than the one in Mass Effect 3, which was a huge letdown for the fans of the franchise.
Mass Effect Andromeda is set to release on the 21st of March in North America and 23rd in Europe, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We will keep you posted as soon as we get any new interesting pieces of information.
