NeoGAF has been shining this week with insider news. Today’s story is that a survey “leak” from EA’s marketing team may intimate some details involving the next Mass Effect’s plot. This should be taken with a grain of salt; however, there’s always the probability of it being true… Fair warning for spoilers.
The marketing survey from EA is as follows:
“Mass Effect: Andromeda takes players to the Andromeda galaxy, far beyond the Milky Way, where players will lead the fight for a new home in hostile territory — where WE are the aliens — opposed by a deadly indigenous race ben on stopping us.
“Experience the freedom to traverse and explore a planet-dense but seamless open-world galaxy, rich with discovery. Play as the leader of a squad of military-trained explorers in an intense third-person shooter, with deep progression and customization systems.
“This is the story of humanity’s next chapter, and player choices throughout the game will ultimately determine our survival in the Andromeda Galaxy.”
It looks legitimate enough, but any validity remains to be seen. Fans have been asking for an opportunity to take on the role of another species since Shephard’s story came to a close, if this is true those wishes are soon to be fulfilled. Tell us what you think in the comments below. Will there be new species or familiar ones from the original trilogy? Leave us your theories and thoughts in the comments below.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is scheduled for an early 2017 release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
