Gameplay was revealed for Mass Effect Andromeda at The Game Awards 2016. Fans of the series will be happy to see that there are a lot of similarities to the “original trilogy”. The fight for a new home is not without its conflicts — some of which are displayed in this trailer.

While there were options for both male and female main characters in the first three games, this is the first time that the franchise has put such a large spotlight on its female protagonist.

A healthy amount of beautiful planets are shown in the trailer, along with gameplay that looks more polished than ever before. Combat is fast and fluid and fans will be happy to know that the new vehicle (called the ‘Nomad’) appears to have much better driving mechanics than the unpopular Mako.

Mass Effect Andromeda sees the return of many familiar species, difficult dialogue choices, and planetary exploration. It appears to be much more open than the previous games, which can only add depth to the franchise and lore.
