Today is N7 Day, and to celebrate, Bioware has released the cinematic trailer for Mass Effect Andromeda.
Bioware is celebrating N7 Day with a new cinematic trailer for Mass Effect Andromeda, as well as more information on the game’s main characters. Also of interest in the trailer is the first look we’ve seen at the game’s new enemy alien race, which has been named in leaks as the Kett (or Khet).
Andromeda will give players the choice of playing as one of two siblings – either Sarah or Scott Ryder. Sarah is voiced by Fryda Wolff, who previously provided the voice of the narrator in Civilization: Beyond Earth. Scott is voiced by Tom Taylorson, who you might recognize as the voice of Octodad in Octodad: Dadliest Catch.
Your father, Alec Ryder, will be voiced by Clancy Brown. If you didn’t recognize his voice in last week’s teaser, you might remember him as Hades in God of War III, among other roles.
Loyalty missions are back as well. Bioware’s Mac Walters told Game Informer that all of the loyalty missions will be optional, and won’t affect the ending.
“The big difference between this and ME2, where you did a loyalty mission and that all impacted the ending, is that they’re much more optional in this case. If you don’t want to engage with them, you don’t have to. If you want engage with them after the critical path is done, you can do that.”
If this trailer isn’t enough to tide you over until the game arrives in the Spring of 2017, you can expect a full gameplay trailer to be shown off at the Video Game Awards on December 1.
