'Mass Effect: Andromeda' release date, news: Game's producer teases big reveal on N7 Day


While the gaming community is busy admiring the next-generation consoles or the next big thing in the industry, BioWare has been putting on the finishing touches for “Mass Effect: Andromeda” before it comes out in early 2017. While the studio has kept a tight lid on its secrets, game producer Michael Gamble’s recent tweet seems to suggest that fans might be in for a treat this Nov. 7.

Fascinating. They are “planning what to show.” For the uninitiated, Nov. 7 is a special day for “Mass Effect” fans and BioWare usually hosts giveaways. The day is nicknamed N7 Day, after the elite program in the Systems Alliance military. Well, Gamble didn’t exactly reveal much with his tweet; however, he went on to post another message. Will the sneak peek be ship related?

Meanwhile, BioWare has yet to announce the release date for “Mass Effect: Andromeda,” but reports claim it may come out on March 21, 2017, because a concept art book called “The Art of Mass Effect: Andromeda” is coming out on the same day. Of course, it is also possible for the game to arrive earlier or later than the book.

In other news, game director Mac Walters was at New York Comic Con earlier this month and RedBull.com was there to hear what he had to say during a panel. According to Walters, “Mass Effect: Andromeda” is going to be quite different from the previous games because the main protagonist isn’t going to be an elite soldier.

“You don’t start as a hero, ready to face whatever lies ahead. You start as a fairly ordinary person, sure with some military training, but still, a lot to learn. You are not a natural-born leader, more a fish out of water. You start as a Pathfinder, not an Elite Soldier, and that’s a totally different story.”
