BioWare has discussed some details about Mass Effect: Andromeda, mainly in the areas of combat and story. When we come to combat senior development director Chris Wynn was talking to a fan on twitter and said,
“There are some new elements that make it more dynamics, but overall similar feel to Mass Effect 3.”
He also made some confirmations with Shepard not being in the next installment because “Storywise, it wouldn’t make much sense,”
Wynn also wanted people to understand the game is still very much in active devlopment and since they haven’t added every character to Andromeda so he couldn’t answer questions about minor characters from the original trilogy.
Wynn did drop some hints that players would be seeing familiar races, the mako and other things to make players feel at home in the world. Andromeda launches in fall 2016 for PC, Playstation 4, and the Xbox One.
