Mass effect was a very memorable series for me but I still have not finished ME3 (and my save is lost) so I also believe it's due for a bit of a refresh.

I don't think I can play ME1 again but I started ME2 again recently and that one is still a solid game to this day.

I hope they have captured everything good about all the series and then some.

I hope they keep the codes for character faces.

You might not have known about it, but when editing the face it generated an alphanumeric code for the properties - you could also enter the code directly to get the matching face. So there were sites where people posted screenshots of their characters and the corresponding code. Made for a much better looking character than I could have created myself from scratch.

Mass Effect is perhaps my favorite video game series ever. Looking forward to this....thou I do want to know more about how they plan to "integrate" multi-player with the single player campaign.....that part has me worried. If its like ME3 where its optional then cool....but if I have to MP to advance the campaign I will have to pass.

Maybe they are going to allow co-op, that would be cool if someone could join you as a companion.

ME1 is so good though. I think I played through it 4 or 5 times. Very good replayability.

I tried to, the game controls are just dated. I think ME2 is my favorite.

Preordered today, March 21st can't get here fast enough! The multiplayer alone is worth the price of admission. No doubt the campaign will be excellent as well. This game, Red Dead 2, and the Scorpio are making 2017 a stellar year indeed.

Must buy for me.


Although, I really wish they had not gone back to the "Mako" crap. God i hated that thing and everything about it. Almost made me stop playing ME1 before completion which would have been a tragedy since I would have missed out on a great game series.

Ditto...I haven't preordered yet because I'm unsure whether I will get this game for PC or Console. If console...it will be with Scorpio for me. I had the exact same experience with ME1. I hated the Mako mechanics so much I actually quit the game for years. And didn't return to it until they announced ME2 was coming out in a year. So I just bulled my way through it...fell head over heels in love with ME1...and the rest for me is history. My #1 favorite game series ever!

I still own all 3 versions for the Xbox 360 with all DLC. And recently downloaded ME2 with DLC for free on EA/Origin. From what I have read ME 1& 2 plays much better with KB/M. And the Mako performs light years better with that combo. I will play it on EA Access before Starting ME2 on PC (or just buy ME Trilogy on PC/Origin). So I am going to go with my Logitech G13 Advanced Keypad & Saitek 3200 gaming mouse setup, with 43" Phillips monitor in 1440p (from 2.5' away). Either way, I want to do a complete new ME Trilogy playthrough before diving into ME Andromeda.

If Scorpio is delayed or too far off, I may not be able to wait. I'll just grab it for PC and cross my fingers & hope that MS will have DLC support for both Windows 10 & Xbox platforms.

I already preordered with the EA Access discount. No way I'm not playing this game day one. I'll be taking time off for sure.

Nice... a little validation for buying a Dolby Vision display. Now to decide between PC and PS4 Pro version....

Only the PC is Dolby vision

I asked them about Atmos on the PC.- engine has it so fingers crossed

Getting the Sony z9 75" just for this title

If you have EA Access you can get a 10 hour trial and play five days early.

EA plans to release a 10-hour trial of Mass Effect: Andromeda for Access subscribers.
The hefty trial of BioWare's sci-fi action RPG comes out on 16th March - five days before the full game comes out on 21st March in the US (it's 23rd in the UK). It'll surely let you make a decent dent in the game before it launches proper.

Bought into EA Access and preordered digitally so I could play for 10 hrs, 5 days early. That may make the wait for actual launch even worse, those last 4 days will suck. I've been playing ME3 mp a cpl hrs a day since it became backwards comp. My fav mp ever, it also helps that the Campaign is epic! This, Red Dead 2, Outlast 2, Injustice 2, and Scorpio all in the same year......make me one happy gamer

Wonder if it will be a play anywhere title? I like that about Resident Evil 7. Hate to have to buy it for console and PC.
