Mass Effect: Andromeda release date confirmed for March

Finally, the next instalment in Bioware’s sci-fi adventure is coming. Mass Effect: Andromeda will launch in March on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The release date in North America has been nailed down as March 21, with the European launch date arriving a couple of days later on March 23, 2017.

Andromeda is set 600 years following the events in the original Mass Effect trilogy with players roaming the galaxy searching for humanity and colonising planets.

Fans can expect new alien races, deeper controls, strike team missions and horde mode, and upgradeable vehicles, in what’s been described as “the best Mass Effect” so far.
