Mass Effect Andromeda release date news: More gameplay to be revealed at CES 2017


BioWare will reveal the “Mass Effect Andromeda” game’s gameplay during the upcoming Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas. With this, fans are hyped up as the game has not really revealed much about its actual gameplay mechanics in the past.

According to Mobile & Apps, the announcement comes from the official “Mass Effect” Twitter account. Basically, it will be shown specifically during NVIDIA’s keynote, and it will feature more of the game’s environment and gameplay.

In other news, the “Mass Effect” series producer Michael Gamble talks about the potential port of “Andromeda” to the Nintendo Switch. This comes off as a surprise since a lot of game developers and publishers are still waiting for the console’s release before throwing in their support.

According to Game Rant, Gamble confirms in an interview that there are currently no plans to bring “Andromeda” to the Nintendo Switch for now. However, he added that the player demand will dictate whether or not the stance will change in the future.

Of course, this does not surprise a lot of fans, since BioWare’s history with Nintendo has been less than cordial. After all, after the Wii U flop experienced by Nintendo, all the games that were released under it also did not perform well.

As such, the “Mass Effect 3” port in the Wii U did not meet BioWare’s expectations, thus possibly discouraging them from moving forward with “Mass Effect: Andromeda” Switch port. With this, Gamble’s confirmation only reinforces this fact.

By extension, the future “Mass Effect” games might not be released on the Switch as well. Thus, with the absence of the game, it could deliver a massive blow to the consumer interest in Nintendo’s new console system. Regardless, while “Mass Effect” might not be arriving on the Switch, it does not mean that other big games will not be coming to it.

“Mass Effect: Andromeda” will be released sometime in 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
