Let’s Explore Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Sexy New Galaxy


We’re not just mining planets anymore as Mass Effect Andromeda takes exploration to a whole new level — and a whole new purpose.

Have you ever just looked at something and just thought to yourself: “Wow, you’re about to ruin my life, aren’t you?” Well, that’s how I feel when I watch Mass Effect: Andromeda clips. It’s the single most gorgeous game I have ever seen in my entire life. And before anyone tries to insert something about Zelda here — Nintendo’s style doesn’t compare.

If you have a monitor or 4K display — just an FYI, the 1080p rendering doesn’t do anything on a 5K, so it’s fine — throw this video up there and dial up the volume before you hit play. You’re going to want to experience the expansive space environment and details as best as you can. Admittedly, the only thing that would make me happier is to play with this puppy in IMAX. Just go full Dolby or something.

Basically, the video gives us an idea of what we’re going to see in-game. And it’s absolutely stunning. From the terrain design to the fact that we can legitimately look out the windows of The Tempest and see what’s happening, Mass Effect: Andromeda promises to be one of the most beautiful games on the market. You can tell the developers crafted this game with love. Plus, I’m so ready to dive into a setting where we can explore openly but with constructs. I love the implementation of key locations. Moreover, I love that the game isn’t as linear as previous installments. A majority of my time will be spent roaming planets trying to find a glitch.

And this may seem weird, but I already nicknamed my Nomad Ruthie and I can’t wait to make her the best six-wheeler around. I’m sure Ruthie and I will have a wonderful time traveling from outpost to outpost.

Luckily, if you’re an EA Access subscriber, you can play a 10-hour trial before the game hits shelves. More importantly, all your progress will carry over once you get the full game.

Honestly, this game is like Fallout in space and I cannot wait to spend days in the Andromeda galaxy when Mass Effect 4 launches on March 21.
