Greetings, earth-clans! It’s my greatest honor to bring you the newest Mass Effect: Andromeda cinematic trailer, which was announced by BioWare yesterday and published today!
In this video, we get to see and meet our crew, from the Salarian pilot Kallo Jath to Cora Harper, a biotic human and Alec Ryder’s second in-command. Cora has been confirmed to be a love interest in Mass Effect: Andromeda. We also get to meet our antagonist, Archon, as well as the Angara.
Something that was also released today was a new Andromeda Initiative briefing video, featuring Alec, Scott and Sara Ryder, as well as some of our squadmates. Apparently there are more that haven’t been shown yet. WHERE ARE THE QUARIANS?!
As humanity’s Pathfinder, you’ll explore undiscovered planets, encounter alien civilizations, and make new friends – and not a few enemies. When Mass Effect™: Andromeda launches this coming March, you’ll grow to rely on a diverse squad of teammates, each with their own talents and personalities.
Two of your starting squad mates will be Liam and Cora, who both signed up to be part of the Pathfinder team on the Ark Hyperion. Liam has already made a name for himself in the Milky Way as a security specialist, with expertise in crisis response, while Cora has had the unique experience of training with the asari matriarchs. Along with Alec, Scott, and Sara Ryder, they form the core of the Pathfinder team, and will be vital companions as you touch down on the Nexus for the first time.
Unlike Liam and Cora, your other squad mates, like Vetra, Peebee, and Drack, have traveled to Andromeda long before your arrival. Vetra, who is already onboard the Nexus, has found that family ties are more important than venturing deeper into the galaxy. Neither Peebee nor Drack were part of the initial Pathfinder team, and while you’ll find Peebee to be a free spirit with a penchant for alien civilizations, you’ll come to know Drack as an aged and grizzled veteran, even by krogan standards.
Of course, you’ll encounter a number of other companions as you traverse Andromeda in search of humanity’s new home, and will put your trust in others like Kallo Jath, your salarian pilot. Among other accomplishments, Kallo was one of the engineers who built the Tempest in its Milky Way construction, and knows the ship inside and out.
Mass Effect: Andromeda launches on March 21, 2017 in North America and March 23, 2017 in Europe. Sign up for the Andromeda Initiative now to receive pre-departure training information and exclusive in-game rewards.
