Mass Effect Andromeda Pathfinder Briefing Video Released

During the N7 day info barrage, Bioware have finally revealed what the Andromeda Initiative is. The latest trailer for Mass Effect Andromeda contains information from the Pathfinder briefing, and explains all about what we presume will be the player’s role in the new game’s world.

So, the story is as follows: you are a space colonist. You are the cream of Earth’s crop. You are being sent into the Andromeda galaxy, a trip which is going to take 600 years. You’re going to be frozen all the while, so there’s no need to worry.

You are a Pathfinder, a martial arts expert, diplomat and expert Nomad driver / Tempest pilot. Along with other, similarly trained and equally gifted indivituals, you’re going to find a new place for the human race.

You’ll be travelling on an Ark (a spacefaring refrigerator) with a bunch of other humans, while there will be three more Arks, each with a separate Milky Way species (most probably the attractive ones). You’re going to travel to the new, inhabitable galaxy together, so you can shoot everyone to bits and claim their stuff as your own. Because that’s how we do things around here.

Sadly, the arks aren’t named after Columbus’ ships, but that would be too on the nose, wouldn’t it? Anyway, clean slate! They’re sending us into a galaxy far, far away, which means they’re not actually beholden to canon. They can invent new species, new physics laws, new everything. It’s probably the most exciting piece of Andromeda news to date.

Mass Effect: Andromeda will send you on your expedition sometime during spring 2017. It’s going to be released on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. If you’re looking to buy it in advance, we have the info on different editions & preorder bonuses. Get ready to “enlighten” some aliens and “discover” their homes.
