Mass Effect Andromeda sales chart success for BioWare’s RPG


BioWare’s Mass Effect Andromeda has debuted at no.1 on the U.K. All Format Chart, though first-week sales of the epic space RPG were down on Mass Effect 3’s launch performance back in March 2012.

Still, Mass Effect Andromeda managed to dislodge Ghost Recon Wildlands from the top spot, and evidently the controversy surrounding its various technical hiccups, notably some dodgy character animations, did little to impact upon its performance at retail. Still, it’s obvious that critics were not quite so taken with this latest entry in BioWare’s multi-million selling franchise as its predecessor.

Mass Effect Andromeda takes place some 600 years after the events of the Reaper invasion depicted in the original trilogy, and sees players exploring the titular Andromeda galaxy as Ryder; a pathfinder tasked with locating a new safe haven for humanity.
