Mass Effect: Andromeda Sets a Release Date

The highly anticipated Mass Effect: Andromeda has set its release date for March 21st in North America and March 23rd in Europe. The news comes from an official post on Mass Effect’s website with Bioware General Manager, Aaryn Flynn explaining what stage of the development cycle Andromeda is currently in:

“Mass Effect: Andromeda is our most ambitious Mass Effect game to date. We’re telling completely new stories, creating new characters, new planets, new species, and introducing new gameplay systems. And for the first time, we’re bringing Mass Effect to the FrostbiteTM game engine, an incredible engine that’s delivering a tremendous graphical jump from the trilogy to Mass Effect: Andromeda. To deliver on this, we’re taking all the time we can to make sure you’re getting the best possible experience.

Over this holiday break, developers at BioWare took home a version of the game in what we call the “holiday build”. This is a longstanding studio tradition that goes back to the early days of the original Mass Effect. Many load up a PC or console and go home to play as much as possible at their leisure. Coming back from holiday, the feedback has been great. Getting the endorsement from members of our studio, many of whom played key roles on the original trilogy, was definitely a key factor in helping us lock in on the date…”

For the full statement head on over to the official website for Mass Effect. We also can expect gameplay footage later tonight during NVIDIA’s CES 2017 presentation which is scheduled for 6:30pm PT. You can find a live stream for the presentation on NVIDIA’s website here.
