Mass Effect: Andromeda producer, Fernando Melo, has confirmed via Twitter that the game’s multiplayer mode will not feature cross-platform support, nor will there be any dedicated servers. Melo stated that the multiplayer will be peer to peer (same as Mass Effect 3). But there is some good news out there, well for you PC players at least, the frame rate not to be capped. Whilst a quick trip over to masseffect.com showcases the recent ‘meet your squad members’ with a new cinematic trailer:
As humanity’s Pathfinder, you’ll explore undiscovered planets, encounter alien civilizations, and make new friends – and not a few enemies. When Mass Effect™: Andromeda launches this coming March, you’ll grow to rely on a diverse squad of teammates, each with their own talents and personalities. Two of your starting squad mates will be Liam and Cora, who both signed up to be part of the Pathfinder team on the Ark Hyperion. Liam has already made a name for himself in the Milky Way as a security specialist, with expertise in crisis response, while Cora has had the unique experience of training with the asari matriarchs. Along with Alec, Scott, and Sara Ryder, they form the core of the Pathfinder team, and will be vital companions as you touch down on the Nexus for the first time. Unlike Liam and Cora, your other squad mates, like Vetra, Peebee, and Drack, have traveled to Andromeda long before your arrival. Vetra, who is already onboard the Nexus, has found that family ties are more important than venturing deeper into the galaxy. Neither Peebee nor Drack were part of the initial Pathfinder team, and while you’ll find Peebee to be a free spirit with a penchant for alien civilizations, you’ll come to know Drack as an aged and grizzled veteran, even by krogan standards.
Mass Effect: Andromeda launches on March 21, 2017 in North America and March 23, 2017 in Europe. Sign up for the Andromeda Initiative now to receive pre-departure training information and exclusive in-game rewards.
