EA has released a new video for Mass Effect: Andromeda. Although it is intended to show off the bonuses that you can get for preordering the game, we’re also given a brief look at some combat gameplay from BioWare’s upcoming RPG.
The preorder bonuses include the Deep Space Explorer armor for protagonist Ryder, a special skin for the Nomad vehicle, and a booster pack for Andromeda’s multiplayer mode. Based on the video, it seems this booster will allow you to accrue experience and level up a little quicker.
The aforementioned gameplay looks to be from the multiplayer and show characters using Biotic powers. At one point a Krogan is shown doing a ground pound. As noted in the trailer, the footage is captured in engine and “representative of the game experience.”
BioWare hasn’t shared many details about Mass Effect: Andromeda’s multiplayer mode, but it looks to be similar to Mass Effect 3’s, which involved players battling against waves of AI-controlled enemies. Weapons and items delivered through loot boxes could be used to customise characters and make them more powerful.
Andromeda launches on March 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Last month, EA released a new cinematic trailer that showed off some of the teammate characters and the bad guy, Archon–watch it here. For more on the trailer and another new one, check out the story below.
In other Andromeda news, BioWare has confirmed there is no crossplay support and that the PC version has an uncapped frame rate.
