Now that three chapters of the most amazing space saga are over BioWare re-launch their franchise. New Mass Effect project is ambitious as ever, full of technologies and retains best gameplay features.
Mass Effect 4 has never been a secret. Soon after the third part was released in 2012 BioWare announced that they were starting another series wondering what fans would like them to focus on. Developers have also said that they would consider Frostbite 3 engine. It all was rumors and official reveal was in 2014. A year later BioWare announced that Mass Effect 4 would be a story which doesn’t relate to Shepard fate. They have revealed the first teaser later that year. Initially the game was planned to be released in the end of 2016 but it was delayed. Now BioWare promises to release new journey in the beginning of 2017.
Mass Effect: Andromeda has a potential to become a revolutionary game in the world of space journeys. It supports 4K resolution and will available for Sony PlayStation 4 Pro. Watch the videos above and you’ll see how picturesque the game is with every world being well-planned. It’s a pity that this miracle can be seen with expensive hardware only. If you’ve got a mediocre PC or a previous generation console without a monstrous TV screen you won’t be able to set your foot on Tempest space ship.
New Mass Effect is going to make you stunt. Just watch these trailers which will give you the whole idea of the game.
Mass Effect: Andromeda doesn’t hesitate to boast about its graphics in new cinematic trailers.
BioWare is showing off new technologies in gameplay videos.
Mass Effect 4 is going to be released for next-gen consoles and PC as well. There will be no difference between these games and PC gamers will enjoy the same features as console users. Mass Effect: Andromeda for PC will be released along with console version. Presumably in the first quarter of 2017.
Electronic Arts do not give any details concerning Mass Effect: Andromeda VR support yet. However, it’s rather reasonable to expect it after the game launch. The fact is that EA are going to release Star Wars Battlefront including VR mission and they promise to continue VR experiments in space. It may well mean that we can expect Mass Effect: Andromeda VR version.
