Bioware has shared another set of Mass Effect Andromeda screenshots featuring some of the characters that will play an important role in the game. You guys can check out the screenshots below. These are close-up shots of three characters in the game. The attention to details in the character models look stunning.
The game is scheduled to launch on March 21, 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game starts in 2185, between the events of the second and third games in the original Mass Effect trilogy. The four Citadel Council races are planning to populate new home worlds in the Andromeda Galaxy as part of a strategy called the Andromeda Initiative.
Each race will send 20,000 citizens on a one-way, 600-year journey to Andromeda aboard their own transportation vessel, called an Ark, and selects a leader, called a Pathfinder. Once the races arrive, they will help build the Nexus, a huge space station that serves as a center of government and diplomacy, a living area, as well as a base of operations for the Pathfinders.
The protagonist of Mass Effect: Andromeda is either Scott or Sara Ryder (depends on player choice). Both Ryder twins are inexperienced Alliance recruits who remain a part of the game’s plot even if they are not selected as the main character.
Their father, Alec Ryder, is humanity’s Pathfinder, tasked with finding a new home for the species. Alec’s second in command is Cora Harper, a biotic specialist with intensive commando training. The protagonist’s squad also includes Liam Kosta, a security expert who specializes in crisis response, and S.A.M., an artificial intelligence that can communicate with all members of the team via implants.
