'Mass Effect: Andromeda' release date, news: BioWare to promote game from N7 Day up until launch


Today will host the very mysterious N7 event that BioWare has been teasing all along regarding “Mass Effect: Andromeda” and is tipped to drop something special for fans.

At the time of writing, no specific announcement has been made; although, the folks over at the video game developer company have coyly teased players with details that they can look forward to sometime today. And it looks very promising as “Mass Effect Andromeda” lead designer Ian S. Frazier and producer Michael Gamble have revealed that they will not hold back on the goodies.

In a conversation on Twitter over the weekend, a fan aired out his fear that N7 Day will just reveal a short teaser, which Frazier gladly replied to.

“To be serious, there will be multiple things happening on Monday. :),” he wrote, quelling the worry given that it seems like fans have been waiting for this occasion for quite some time now. Then, Gamble chimed in, saying,” And all the way up until launch.”

N7 Day was first announced back in mid-September alongside some high-definition screenshots of the title. Since then, there has been a steady buzz of anticipation regarding the event. But it is not quite clear up to now what BioWare is planning to announce with the release of “Mass Effect: Andromeda” still months away. This specific development makes things more exciting with the confirmation that the game developer is going all out in terms of marketing.

Meanwhile, prior to this exchange in social media, it was already revealed that the new trailer for the role-playing game is narrated by the main lead Ryder’s father.

“The time has come to prepare ourselves for a future beyond the Milky Way; a future that begins 600 years from where we stand, in a time and a place among unknown stars and unseen dangers,” Ryder’s father says in the promo clip.

Given that the game is the successor to the “Mass Effect” trilogy but is also dubbed as a separate entity since it is set at a time different from its predecessors, fans have caught the “600 years” remark from the trailer and were quick to theorize whether it indicates the time period of the upcoming game or not. Unfortunately, Gamble was cagey when asked about the matter.

No official release date has been specified for “Mass Effect: Andromeda” albeit it is expected to drop in the first quarter of 2017. It is safe to assume that this will also be one of the details that will finally be confirmed during N7 Day.
