BioWare released a new cinematic trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda today to celebrate N7 Day.
“We slept for hundreds of years, dreaming of a new home. But when we finally awake, our dreams of peace were shattered,” says the narrator, Ryder’s father, in the video.
Today’s trailer follows a teaser video from Nov. 1, which showed off brand new characters and featured main character Ryder’s father. This teaser video also invited viewers to join the “Andromeda Initiative,” which is a group that travels outside of the Milky Way Galaxy.
While we’re not sure what all of the details on what Andromeda Initiative is, you can sign up for it at its website here. According to the Andromeda Initiative website, “The Andromeda Initiative is currently seeking recruits. Registered recruits will be among the first contacted to receive critical mission information, special training opportunities, and will also be eligible for rewards upon program completion. Orientation begins Nov. 7.” We’ll continue to update when we get more details on the Andromeda Initiative.
It was also confirmed that we’ll see more Mass Effect: Andromeda gameplay during the Game Awards in December. In addition, Game Informer said Ryder’s father is voice by Clancy Brown, who also appeared in Warcraft and The Shawshank Redemption.
Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released before the end of March 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said, “Right now, Mass Effect is tracking extremely well,” he said about Andromeda. “The game looks beautiful. And we’re really pleased with its progress. However, as you’ve seen, we are willing to make moves in launch dates if we feel it’s necessary to deliver the right player experience.”
