Though Mass Effect: Andromeda was originally scheduled for a "winter 2016" release window, it was pushed back into 2017 last March.
For such a marquee release, Electronic Arts has been strangely tight-lipped about Mass Effect: Andromeda, the latest game in BioWare's acclaimed space-opera series. The highly-anticipated sequel was finally given a firm release date today, meaning you can start planning your midnight launch parties and/or "sick" days from work.
BioWare has announced the Mass Effect: Andromeda release date, and it's surprisingly much sooner than we thought it would be.
The trailer, meanwhile, showed footage of new hero Ryder fighting off monsters and taking advantage of new abilities. These reveal more about the Arks, the ships carrying the four main species, and their 600 year journey to the Andromeda galaxy.
Princess Diana's letters about Princes William and Harry to be auctioned
Several Christmas cards from the Queen, as well as from Princess Diana and the Prince of Wales, are also due to be auctioned. Diana said it was a "particularly happy time" in a letter sent five days after Harry's birth in September 1984.
Are you eager to explore Mass Effect: Andromeda's open world environments? Why the USA is getting a two-day head start on the rest of the world is anyone's guess but we're pretty salty about it. Bioware made the announcement via their official Mass Effect blog.
Andromeda fans would see more of the game at the Consumer Electronics Show later this week, according to GameSpot.
The most recent development milestone was the creation of what BioWare calls the "holiday build".
Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to launch in just over two months, and now we've got a new glimpse of what awaits humanity's Pathfinder in a new galaxy and when it's slated to release. Players can now change their character class in real-time rather than being locked into one at the beginning of the game. Bioware has the unenviable task of making players connect with new characters, after setting the bar so high with such classic characters in the original games. "We're excited about how far we are going with the franchise, and we hope you find it's been worth the wait".
