Mass Effect: Andromeda Gets An N7 Day Trailer

The trailer includes more gameplay.

As was previously promised, BioWare has released a brand new trailer for Mass Effect: Andromeda to commemorate today’s N7 Day celebrations.

The trailer includes plenty of ominous narration, flashy visuals, glimpses of all three members of the starring Ryder family, and even a few snippets of direct gameplay. Specific details such as the time period in which Andromeda is set and just who the main villain will be sadly aren’t disclosed during the trailer’s one minute and 45 seconds of runtime. However, one bit of dialogue stating “we’re the aliens here,” makes it pretty clear that—wherever and whenever Andromeda is set—it’s a long way from Earth.

Along with the trailer, BioWare also disclosed some other miscellaneous details about Andromeda. The twins Scott and Sarah Ryder (one of whom will serve as Andromeda’s main playable protagonist based on a decision made by the player) are being voiced by Tom Taylorson (the voice of Octodad in Octodad: Dadliest Catch) and Fryda Wolff (the narrator from Civilization: Earth) respectively. Additionally, their father, Alec Ryder, will be voiced by actor Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs from SpongeBob Squarepants).

Sadly, the trailer doesn’t reveal a more specific release date for Mass Effect: Andromeda despite the fact that a specific date was previously leaked. Instead, the trailer reiterates what many already knew—that the game will be released sometime in Spring 2017. Nevertheless, the trailer did at least confirm that Andromeda will launch for both current-gen consoles (Xbox One and PlayStation 4) and PC.
